1965 Corvette Stingray is an Autocross Legend

Muscle Car

Drive's Big Muscle unearths a classic Stingray to die for.

This 1965 Corvette Stingray was bought for the sole purpose of autocross. And that’s what it’s been doing every single year since it rolled off the production line. Its custom fenders and steamroller size race tires were modifications made by its original owner when the car was still fresh. Current owner Brian Hobaugh has had the low-slung Vette in his family since 1983. Apart from a fresh coat of paint and minor touch-ups, it hasn’t changed.

Under the hood a 364 cu.in small block (6.0 liters) delivers 500 hp and an equal number of torque, while the 65 Vette looks, sounds and, according to Big Muscle’s Mike Musto, handles like a dream.
