|Comments:||It is not often that we come across a gem like this: a documented, original, unmolested time capsule which retains the authentic look of the era, all the while being in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition.
Our offer today is a very special 1965 Coupe, two family owned since new, mostly in California. It has only one re-spray in the factory Milano Maroon and has an original no-hit body. Needless to say, all numbers are matching with the exception of the starter.
It retains all the original spark shielding, air cleaner and radiator . A teak (factory option) steering wheel and dash, original shifter and glass . Only the needed general maintenance items were done: new rear axle bearings, brakes (calipers, rubber lines, pads), front and rear rubber bushings, rebuilt carburetor/distributor and new mufflers . The car wears older “western” knock off wheels with gold lines having good rubber. All pins and hammer (for the wheels), spare tire, jack etc. are with the car. Some original paper work including NCRS registration, window sticker and some receipts are with the car . The car runs and drives great, everything works, clock, power antenna, all lights/turn signals, horn, interior lighting. Clear CA title and retains its correct Black Cali license plates. A very original underside that has never been undercoated and has all original unpainted fiberglass. A nice original interior color in the code correct maroon (converted from vinyl). 100% clean birdcage...
Options include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:
a numbers-matching 327cid/300bhp V8 engine(L75);
full gauges with 5500 red line tach;
telescopic steering column(N36);
teakwood steering wheel(N32);
AM/FM radio(U69); clock;
comfort and convenience group(Z01);
The tires are Firestone Deluxe Champion gold wall, size 7:75-15 mounted on aftermarket Western cast aluminum Knock-Off wheels, all in very good condition.
The following comes from a recent inspection by NCRS member: "MECHANICAL: The engine started quickly and idled smoothly. We found that the transmission shifts extremely well. The brakes stop the car with no pull to left or right. The steering is easy and tracks straight down the road with no vibrations. The gauges all work properly and the new mufflers have a nice rumble.
EXTERIOR: The exterior physical condition of this vehicle’s fiberglass is excellent with no stress cracks around the car. All the body panels are original and align nicely. The doors open and close solidly with no sagging. The re-paint and chrome are almost perfect. We did note the tape lines in the door jams from the re-spray.
INTERIOR: The original vinyl and carpets are in very good condition, with no rips, tears or holes noted. The new leather seats are excellent. The door panels, kick panels and rear panels are also very good. The headliner is not sagging with just some of the color coming off over the drivers and passenger’s heads. The dash, dash pad and gauges are all excellent and worked as intended. The chrome and knobs are very good. There is a minor paint issue with the color-coded seat belts.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine and engine compartment is mostly clean and original. The chrome distributor cover and spark plug covers are still installed.
CHASSIS: The undercarriage is in good condition with just usage dirt and grease. New mufflers have been installed
This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette coupe is in very good condition with no modifications. It also has some receipts, original window sticker and NCRS registration.
OVERALL CONDITION CODE: #2, "VERY GOOD"
