The C2-generation Chevy Corvette has rocketed in price these last few years, and it's easy to see why. It's one of the most stunning Corvettes ever built, and drives unlike anything else. This beautiful green example recently popped up for sale on eBay Motors, and we think you should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
According to the sellers in Bedford, Pennsylvania, this 1965 Corvette is a factory A/C option car, equipped new with power steering, aluminum knock-off wheels, whitewall tires, a positraction rear axle, and an AM/FM radio. A restoration on the car was performed sometime in the past, though the dealer doesn't specify when. It's finished in the correct Glen Green over saddle brown interior color combo, and looks to be in great condition. The odometer reads just 60,694 miles.
The sellers claim every single item on the car is functional, down to the clock and radio. The rollaway headlights function as they should, as does the numbers-matching 300-horsepower 327 cubic-inch V8. Sending that power to the rear wheels is a four-speed manual transmission.
The best part about this car isn't the paint or the interior, though. It's that it has a few nicks and scratches along the body. That may sound like a bad thing, but really, it's a blessing in disguise. Because the car's not totally perfect, that means you don't have to stress about ruining it by parking in a tight lot or maneuvering down a gravel road. All you really have to do is enjoy it. Of course, I'm not suggesting you strip the interior and turn it into a race car (though I wouldn't fault you if you did)—all I'm saying is, you don't have to worry about making it imperfect, because it already is.
Find it with an asking price of $61,500.
