Default 1965 Corvette Roadster 327-365hp

Here's a car that is going through my shop right now. I am freshening some things up on this 70k mile 65 L76 roadster. A great solid car, that appears to have every original numbered and dated component. Beautiful original interior!!


This is going to prove to be a great driver for someone when it's completed.

327-365hp
M20 4 speed (close ratio)
4.11 posi
AM/FM radio
C&C group
(knock offs and gold lines added)















I've got a Dewitt's radiator on the way, fresh set of gold lines, and a small amount of items to replace the typical parts store items (battery cables, heater hoses, etc). I just finished rebuilding the carb, will rebuild the clock, pull the gauge cluster to clean all of the gauge faces / lenses, and overall just give everything a good going through.

Pretty car, Tim. The 1965 yellow is stunning, it looks like they used the correct shade on the repaint.

I'm not sure. It's the one thing that is out of line on dates Bob. It's dated Dec 1964. The rest of the dates are pretty tight. If you are interested, we can arrange something. It is kind of a sprinkler though just to be up front.
