One of 771 Fuelies solid in 1965.

Split-window Corvettes might look cool, but if you want to buy a vintage ‘Vette that’s really rare, then check out this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Fuelie that will be auctioned off in December through Raleigh Classic Car Auctions. In 1965, only 771 fuel-injected Corvettes (aka, Fuelies) were built, and this would be the last year fuel injection until the 1982 model year Corvette debuted the Crossfire Injection.

Just about all C2 Corvettes are special, but what really sets this one apart is under the hood. The 375-horsepower, 327 CID V8 gets its fuel from a Rochester fuel injection system, which was a pricier option than the more powerful and carbureted 396 CID V8 with 50 more horsepower. With so few Fuelies delivered that year, Chevy dropped the fuel-injection option after 1965. In true sports car style, this '65 'Vette sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

 Not only is this Little Red Corvette rare, it's a multiple show winner. The winning bidder gets all of the car's documentation including the Spinner Concours Award, copy of Triple Crown Award and a copy of Bloomington Gold award as well recognition from the National Corvette Restorers Society including a copy of NCRS Performance Verification Award, copy of Top Flight Award and copy of the NCRS judging sheets.

With recognition like that, you know this Corvette is in top condition. The combination of the Rally Red paint and white soft top makes this an eye-catching classic, and the interior is just as beautiful with an all-red interior and a gorgeous teakwood steering wheel.
