1965 Corvette Ads

1965 was the year of change for Corvette. While the Fuelie pumped out a huge 375 HP - all of it usable, the big news was the mid-year release of the way hot 425 HP 396 big block.

Loosely based on the 409 and the 427 "Mystery Engine" of 1963, the new engine made fantastic HP and, of course, major torque well beyond what the small block could muster.

Sales increased by about 1,200 units (6%) over 1964, likely due to the new engine, since little else was changed from the buyers' perspective.
