Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1965

1965 CHEVY CORVETTE
HIGHLY DOCUMENTED FRAME OFF RESTORATION!!
FIRST YEAR FOR 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES!!
RARE ORIGINAL VINYL TOP HARD TOP!!

It's very rare that a car stays true to its heritage, especially through 7 generations of growth. Since its debut in late 1953 the Corvette always remained a 2 door, two seater sports car and through each generation, you knew, without a doubt, what the car was and what it stood for. It was certainly an earnedprivilege to be able to own a Corvette, it was an automatic induction into a private unspoken club that every member had the same common denominator...but owning a Corvette can be very tricky especially the older they are. Owning one was one thing, but driving one always became a troubled dilemma. When you have a numbers matching, rare Corvette you hardly want to drive it to ruin its integrity. You worry taking it to a show because of the risk of getting it dinged, scratched or even breathed on.
Today, I offer up a beautiful 1965 Chevy Corvette that has been restored as a show car but built to drive. It is not a numbers matching car but will stand tall next to the best of them. Please read on to find out the quality of this restoration and the best of both worlds this Corvette offers to the next owner. It is a 2 owner car that has received a full frame off restoration. The current owner has owned this vehicle for over 30 years and has always been maintained and stored in a climate controlled environment.There are plenty of photos below and a video at the very bottom. Make sure to view everything!!! Thank you!
CORVETTES AT CARLISLE IS 8/23 - 8/26 - IF YOU HAVE CORVETTE FEVER AND COULDN'T MAKE IT TO THE SHOW, MAYBE THIS VETTE CAN BE AN OPTION TO ENSURE YOU WON'T MISS NEXT YEAR'S EVENT!!
Exterior:
The exterior of this car is stunning. Painted in Viper red it gives it a touch of a custom look and the quality of the paint job shows great depth and shine. The car received a frame off restoration(many photos documenting the process with all receipts) which took over 3 years to complete. The original bumpers were re-chromed. The frame was sand blasted, painted with new trailing arms and suspension. It was built better then original. The body is straight and aside from some minor stress cracks(see photos) is in excellent restored condition. The top was replaced at the time of restoration and does show a little wear and the rear plastic is blurry but useful. The hard top is completely original and was the rare vinyl top option. All the glass is excellent and all the lights and marker lights work. This car is a show car that can be driven and enjoyed. It will not win any concourse judging because its not original #s matching but may win best of show at local events and cruise nights. Please view all the photos and video and let me know of any questions.
Interior:
The interior has been restored to its original white leather and is in excellent condition. New carpet was installed and the gauge cluster was sent out for restoration as well(odometer does not work but speedo does). The windows operate smoothly. Of course the hurst shifter handle is not original, owner just kept it because it was comfortable to use. The pictures speak for themselves. Please view the photos and video and let me know of any questions you may have.
Drive-Train:
The engine is from a late 60's Camaro and is a 350 cubic inch block. The motor was rebuilt at the time of restoration and some performance bolt ons were added for power. The transmission is a 4 speed manual which shifts smooth and strong. The car runs perfect with plenty of power and has an awesome sound. It was built to drive and enjoy. Under the hood and underneath the car is highly detailed and in excellent condition which is show ready or ready to drive. All the belts and hoses were always maintained though out the years and the tires, brakes and suspension are in excellent condition and road ready. The car is very tight and accelerates, shifts, stops and handles perfectly and if you're the next owner you will have no surprise and/or disappointments. Please let me know of any questions you may have.
In Summation:
If you're looking for a second generation Corvette that you can drive and enjoy and show off this would be the perfect candidate. It is show ready, HIGHLY documented restoration with receipts and photos to prove its quality. This is an investment you can enjoy for many, many years to come!!
