The second-generation Corvette has always been, and will likely always be, the most desirable and collectable Corvette of all time. It was truly an icon of 1960's car culture and has been immortalized in song, art, and other mediums. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Stingray is sharp, modern, flashy 60's perfection. It looked like it was from another planet with its bulging fenders and super sleek shape, catching the attention of everyone. It carved the way for every Corvette that followed, and solidified Chevrolet's presence in the sports car market. From the punchy little 327C.I. V8 to the massive 427C.I. big block, the C2 Corvette Stingray came with a wide variety of powertrain options. One of the more unique options available from 1963 to 1965 only was the 327C.I. V8 fitted with mechanical fuel injection.

Making an incredible 375hp from the small block engine, the L84 optioned Fuelie Corvette was a marvel of technology for its time and offered a unique experience from its carbureted siblings. The 1965 model year marked the end of fuel injection for the Corvette until the later Crossfire Injection of 1982 and then Tuned Port Injection in 1985. The early fuel injected Corvettes didn't sell as well as carbureted models due to its high price tag and the specialized service it required. Only 771 Corvettes were fitted with the option in its final year, and this is one of those very special cars. Due to their complexity, many fuel injected Corvettes of this era had their intakes swapped and then topped with a carburetor, leaving many original fuel injection units lost to time. But this example is all correct with matching numbers on the engine, Muncie 4-speed transmission, and Rochester fuel injection unit. The rear differential is date code correct and features a 3.36 final drive ratio with Positraction to help put the power to the pavement.

This spectacular example comes with other sought-after options, increasing its rarity and value. It's fitted with power 4-wheel disc brakes, power windows, and rare telescoping steering wheel so you can more easily find the perfect driving position in this one-of-a-kind 'Vette. The interior sports its correct Saddle leather upholstery, another rare and desirable option. The interior also features a 6,500rpm redline tachometer, 160mph speedometer, Delco AM-FM radio, color-matched seatbelts, 3-spoke steering wheel with wood-look rim, a large, carpeted storage area behind the seats, and that iconic Muncie shifter in the center. The exterior is finished in gorgeous Milano Maroon, of which only 2,831 were painted in that year, and is accented by glimmering chrome work and desirable aluminum turbine wheels wrapped in Goodyear white line tires. The underside of this Corvette is just as nice as the top and shows its original bare fiberglass with not covered with paint or undercoat.
This classic fuel-injected Stingray is ready to be the centerpiece of any collection, and shut down any 413C.I. Super Stock Dodges it may come across along the way.
