Beautiful ‘frame off’ restoration of this rare 365 HP/350 lb-ft Milano Maroon 1965 Corvette coupe with Maroon vinyl interior, powered by highly-desired, numbers-matching, L76 engine with M20 4-speed transmission, Teakwood Steering Wheel, Knock-off Wheels, and optioned AM-FM radio with power-operated antenna.
Although the chassis is non-numbers matching, this car was professionally prepared for NCRS Top Flight judging and was awarded a blue ribbon, ‘Top Flight ‘award at a St. Louis Chapter judging meet. This car could win local or regional car shows effortlessly.
A complete, 118 photo restoration album describes in detail the restoration of the chassis, body, engine, transmission and rear end. The album will be provided to the new owner.
A complete set of specifications of this car, as restored, presented below.
