Chevrolet Corvette - 1965
In 1965, chevrolet came out with its most powerful corvette yet. Midway through the year, a 396-cu.-in. big block engine, matched with a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, was made optional on more than two thousand coupes and convertibles. With 425 hp, this vette was intended for serious drivers only

the 1965 corvette has been ranked by autoweek magazine as one of the fifty fastest production cars ever made and sold in the United States. The outright bulk of the 396 turbo-jet v8 brought about the introduction of four-wheel disc brakes. This new system, put in every corvette until the end of 1982, had some problems, but it could stop the car as fast as it could accelerate.
the fastback is sometimes considered the 1965 corvettes trademark. Although fastbacks were produced before then, the addition of the turbo¬jet engine to the fastback coupe brought about exciting changes to the exterior and the interior. A special hood with air scoops was added, along with front fender louvers, an adjustable steering
wheel, knock-off wheels, and redesigned seats for better support
The 1965 cowette the first with disc brakes and the last with fuel injection is one of the most highly sought-after cars by collectors
