The 1965 and 1966 both have three vertical vents behind the front tires. But the 1965 Corvette’s grill was unique to the C2 generation. Horizontal grill bars were changed to black, but the outer trim is bright. The 1966 Corvette’s grill is referred to as an egg crate because of its mesh design. The only logo on the 1965’s hood is the center-fixed Cross Flags. The 1966 Corvette has the Corvette Sting Ray script logo in the front right corner. Highlights:
The big block 396 ci 425 hp engine made its debut in March 1965, a mid year addition which required the need for a new hood with a center bulge. The ’65 Corvette was the last year of the fuel injected engine until the Cross Fire Injected engines were introduced in 1982. 1965 also marks the first year that four-wheel disc brakes were included as standard equipment. A power antenna was also standard. The instrument cluster was restyled with black flat faces and the center dash area where the radio was located was painted rather than vinyl covered.
