If you’d just spent fifty miles twisting down a mountainside in this ’65 CORVETTE, you’d be taking the words right out of our mouth about its new 4-wheel disc brakes.
Praise comes easily to Corvette’s big caliper-type disc brakes. they’re fade-resistant, heat-resistant, water-resistant and fuss-resistant.
Adjustment and maintenance? What adjustment and maintenance? These discs can get along swell without so much help.
All this peace of mind is standard equipment on all ’65 Corvettes. But even this doesn’t complete the improvements.
We’ve added a new 327-cubic-inch V8. This new one is the best behaved 350-hp V8 you ever met. Loaded with all kinds of good things a high-performance engine ought to have. But tamed to a civilized purr. You can order it or a 300-, 365- or Ramjet fuel-injected 375-hp V8 on any Corvette.
As for appearance, it’s brushed up. Smooth new hood, magnesium-style wheel covers, new grille design and functional front fender louvers. And a revised interior that treats you even more elaborately than before.
We didn’t change all those lovely items you can specify, like 4-Sjpeed fully synchronized transmissions, cast aluminum wheels, Positraction—the lot.
All in all, Corvette for ’65 adds up to a lot more car in every way. Which we think is the best possible reason for changing it.
