Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1965

This 1965 Corvette is a correctly restored car to its original build configuration as a two-top, L79 327, 4spd Roadster in the extremely rare color combination of Code GG Glen Green with Dark Green interior and a tan convertible top, all authentic to the factory trim tag. The car was built to be show quality throughout and also be totally sorted to run and drive safely and reliably. The frame-up restoration was just completed recently and the car has been driven just over 400 miles since completion. Actual total mileage from 1965 is unknown. A beautifully restored frame with all chassis components was rebuilt and appearance restored including a complete rebuild of the correct 1965 L79 Code HT engine and 4-speed M21 Muncie transmission. This authentic L79 350 horsepower 327 was sourced and completely rebuilt to stock specifications for this project. Nothing was overlooked in this restoration to make this car spectacular and perform as good as it looks. A new set of 4 reproduction knock-off wheels were fitted with radial gold stripe tires to offer the best combination of looks and drivability. A complete new Al Knoch interior was installed and all interior items were totally restored including the dash cluster, AM-FM radio and steering column & steering wheel. The new Knoch tan soft top was installed on a restored folding top frame assembly. The auxiliary hardtop was also restored and fitted. The complete body restoration began with total paint removal and repair of all small damage and refit of all panels. This was followed by extensive preparation of the entire body to prepare for the show quality overall refinish in the original color of Glen Green. The color and paint quality is truly stunning. All exterior trim including glass is either restored or replaced. Rotating headlamps work perfectly as motors were rebuilt and headlamp bucket bearings replaced. A recently obtained NCRS Shipping Dara report and a reissued window sticker listing color, trim and equipment is pictured and included.
