1965 Chevrolet Corvette
FULLY RESTORED, CORRECT L78 BLOCK, 4-SPEED, FUEL INJECTED, FACTORY NASSAU BLUE
There's no denying the desirability of a C2 corvette. For many of the Corvette faithful, these mid-year corvettes present just the best styling and design ques that are lacking on anything older than 1967. For many,1967 is the pennacle year that everything was just right on it. However, for others it doesn't get any better than the mid-year arrival of Chevrolet's first big block corvette - the 396/425hp L78 option introduced in the middle of the 1965 model year.
This gorgeous Nassau blue 1965 Chevrolet Corvette was believed to start life as a real L78 before the original engine was replaced in the early 70s. Today it has seen a full restoration down to a period correct 3855962 casting block built to 425hp specs with some tasteful upgrades like a HEI distributor and a MSD Fuel Injection. The car also includes the original L78 carburetor, original radiator and original distributor.
The body is covered in the correct Nassau Blue (FF code) blue paint. Fully restored in the early 2000s, today the car shows very well. It's clear that someone knew what they were doing when they painted it because it stands tall today. The only blemishes it has is from your typical road use, ultimately this car's body and paint is something you would be proud to show at a local car show or cruise in.
The interior is in great shape and feature a lot of the original components including the original teakwood steering wheel and original gauges. The seats and dash show little to no wear and are in great shape. Like a lot of original L78's this left the factory without the horsepower robbing power steering and a factory radio delete. In the engine bay you'll find the original transistor ignition, upgraded radiator and factory big block hood. The 15" torqueflight wheels add to the overall look of the old-school racer.
Underneath you'll find just a true honest car that isn't hiding anything. If you are looking for a good driver that can be taken anywhere or taken to the next level with power steering and A/C. Don't miss your chance to own one of the most iconic cars of all time. Call Today!
