Hello everyone! I’m looking to buy my first Corvette. How difficult is it to find a C2 with an automatic transmission? What can I expect to pay for a nice car? I know nothing about these cars. Is there anything I should look for? Anything I should be cautious of and avoid? Thanks in advance!

65 Impala, 396, TH 350, Cameo Beige

Not too many power glide c2s made. They’re out there though.
Might get one as cheap as 40k if they. An go up from there. Good luck and we’ll one to cat.

Like Wagonmaster said, not a lot of automatic 63-67 vettes. Many times also, someone that speced an automatic also loaded the car with other options. In the current NCRS Driveline there are two mid-years with auto for sale, a 65 and a 67, both convertibles. The 65 has air, pretty rare in those days. The 67 is loaded along with leather teal interior. If you're interested I can pm the contact info. The asking on the 65 is 62K, both cars are restored.
