1965 Corvette Convertible Classified Ad Details$79,500.00 Date Posted:11/14/2020 - Matthews, NC, NC
California car, no rust, no hit, off road from 1988 until 2010. Originally rally red with red interior, 365/327 based on receipts from valve adjustments, original engine long gone, 4 speed, 3.55 posi. I purchased in 2007 in boxes and totally disassembled. I replaced interior, windshield, glove box door, dashpads, power antenna, all weatherstrip, Al Knoch top on rust free frame, gauges had been rebuilt when I bought car. I rebuilt head light motors, PW motors, replaced ALL wiring harnesses, body mount bushings, re-chromed original bumpers, taillights, emblems, re-chromed vent windows, NOS rocker moldings, dressed to look like a 396 car, has original grille, and appears to be an original 396 hood. I installed a 66 BB radiator support and a Dewitts 66 BB radiator with twin electric fans. The new, aluminum head engine had two dyno pulls, the first made 580 horsepower at 5600, and the second made 623 at 6300. I have the first dyno sheet, but I am looking for the second sheet. It has custom Elston(Elston Exhaust.com)tri-y stainless headers and stainless pipes with Magnaflow mufflers. I replaced the suspension with Van Steel coilovers, including offset control arms in the rear. It has new rotors and Wilwood calipers along with Wilwood master cylinder. I replaced the steering with a Flaming River r&p and tilt steering column. The paint is nice, but could be made show quality with wet sanding and buffing. The wheels are custom 7" rally wheels with custom offsets and tires are 225/60/15 in front and 235/60/15 in rear. I built this car to drive and completed it in late 2010. The odometer promptly broke as I drove it from my basement. It may have 3000 miles on it, at the most and has never spent a night outside since I have owned it. Knee problems have prevented me from driving it as I intended. I kept the original suspension parts, including rear trailing arms that are in good condition, as well as the brakes, rotors and master cylinder. I also have a decent, non restored hardtop and spare tire carrier that will go with the car. I am sure I am forgetting some things, so if you are really interested, and have questions, please give me a call. If I do not answer, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I am available.
