Win one of six RDJ Dream Cars including Robert Downey Jr.’s Corvette

1965 was the first year a big block engine was featured in a Corvette and the only year that used a 396 cubic inch engine. It was the last year for the ram jet fuel injected engine up until 1982 when they introduced the cross fire injection engine.

It was the first year that factory side pipes and disc brakes were offered on a Corvette.

The RDJ Dream Corvette's original color was Glen Green with a Saddle Vinyl Interior.

"We changed the heart of an American classic, but we left the soul intact."

- Robert Downey Jr.
