Description
 
Highlights : This 1965 Corvette has received a complete frame up restoration on a 23,000 mile car. The car has been restored to its original stock condition and is ready for NCRS judging. The car is finished with new Silver Pearl paint and is the original color (paint code QQ) of the car. It is the best paint job I have ever seen on a Corvette. The interior has also been completely restored to its original condition and color, Silver vinyl (trim code 426). I have checked with the NCRS Tech Board on the production numbers on this color combination and they say those records no longer exist, but they confirm, it is very rare. The vehicle is equipped with its factory original 327 motor, 350 horsepower L79 and original Muncie 4-speed transmission. If you are looking for a Stingray to invest your money into (given the mileage, condition, color combination, engine and transmission combination and the pure curb appeal) this is a car you’ll want to consider. This car is fresh and will not disappoint from front to back and top to bottom.
