I’ve recently been exposed to color psychology and have found it fascinating, especially with how it can affect our perception of cars. For example, the color red, as seen on the Pick of the Day, a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette, is provocative and stimulating. It symbolizes power and is an aggressive color, but also creates excitement and ignites passion.

Automotive enthusiasts have come to see the Corvette as being all that and more -– exotic, powerful, aggressive, sleek, and it’s become a symbol of passion for many middle-aged men over the years.

Listed on ClassicCars.com, this particular Corvette is offered by a private seller who says this classic Victory Red Corvette can “keep up with the newer showroom additions” and “appears as a newly restored 1965 Corvette” with the exception of the wheels and brakes.

The listing includes several detailed images of the car and a video that brings the car to life and showcases the Corvette’s tendency to look as if it is going fast, even when stationary.

According to the listing, this resto-mod features a custom-built chassis that incorporates suspension and brakes from the C4 while allowing the 1965 Corvette body to be connected at the factory mounting points.
