It is unwise to just tinker with an American classic like the Corvette Sting Ray. Changes should be meaningful. This fine road machine was and still is America’s only true sports car. So for 1965, Sting Ray underwent subtle refinements in styling that only enhanced its unique looks. And performance, always a basic measure of Sting Ray’s appeal, has been improved still further. A new “street” engine develops 350 horsepower and answers most enthusiasts’ needs for traffic and highway driving. The two top V8 power plants offer 365- and 375-horsepower for those who specify all-out go. Best of all, the Sting Ray now has Sport-Master disc brakes on all four wheels that naturally complement the tremendous performance capabilities of the car. The 1965 Stingray was the last year for fuel injection until 1982 when the L83 cross-fire fuel injection was introduced. The ’65 Sting Ray stops smoothly, surely and firmly with braking reserve far beyond normal requirements. More than ever the Corvette Sting Ray is luxurious transportation for two, a different kind of driving experience.
