Vehicle Description

1965 396 Corvette Convertible:

1965 saw the introduction of the first Big Block (many call the 396 as the first L88 as they share many similarities). They made approximately ~2,100 396's in 1965. These cars have really made their mark and have seen an incresingly popularity since the 65 hit 50 years old last year. This car is one of the nicest 396's that you will find as it has its "Original" "Born-With" motor with Original matching numbers trim and vin tags that have all been verified by Al Grenning. We performed a full frame-off restoration on this car last year and debuted it at Bloomington Gold where it received a Bloomington Gold OEM Certification. As you will see through some of the pictures, there is nothing that was left untouched. The car is "Over-Restored" and the chassis looks like pure jewelry. This car earned 3 NCRS Top Flights, Bloomington Gold Status and the coveted Triple Diamond Award as well as People's Choice at the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals in 2016.

This is a chance to own a 1 year only (4month run) no stories, investment grade 396 Corvette.
