1965 Chevrolet Corvette

1965 told the tale of two Corvettes. The 1965 Chevrolet Corvette was the last to be a "Fuelie;" fuel injection would make its final appearance in the '65 Sting Ray.

In April of 1965, Chevrolet released its first big-block V8, a 396-ci monster rated at 425 horsepower. Luckily for drivers, 1965 also brought the addition of standard four-wheel disc brakes so that the 'vette could stop after gaining so much power from this engine.

The big-block engines were identifiable by the "power bulge" they created in the hood. (Yeah, go ahead and giggle. That's what it was called.)
