Only 5,500 miles since a high quality, body off the frame
restoration to factory specs. This is a very highly sought after
365 horsepower car with #s numbers match colors, motor, trans and
rear. Same owner 1987-2019, 32 years! He is a collector with
several cars. It was very well cared for. I'm very impressed with
it's condition. The fit, finish and function is great.
EXTERIOR: This is the lowest production of all the colors in 1964.
The name saddle tan does it no justice. It's a classy metallic
color. The body is fantastic. Restored over 30 years ago and there
are no signs of damage or cracking. It was just professionally
repainted because of minor nicks, it is beautiful. Everything fits
really well, doors shut with a click. Jambs are slick. Excellent
weather strips and seals. All the chrome, stainless, emblems etc
are really nice. The tan convertible top has no signs of wear,
window is clear. Has knock off wheels and BFG radial tires.
Headlights open and close real well. Has correct antenna.
INTERIOR: Really nice inside too. I'm sitting in it, I can tell the
cushions are new because the seats are firm. Upholstery fits tight.
Beautiful dash. Gauges are completely restored. Has only 5,500
miles on odometer, that's since full restoration. Has correct 6,500
redline tach for the high revving motor. The clock works. Has
original Am-Fm radio. The glovebox door looks new, looks new inside
and it even feels right opening and closing. Carpets front to back
were replaced. Door panels are excellent. Has the correct seat
belts. Looking up at the convertible top frame, it's all painted
black. Really, it's very tidy and clean inside.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has the legendary 365 horsepower 327 motor. In
those days rarely did horsepower exceed the cubic inches. This
motor had special heads, factory aluminum intake with a big Holley
carb, high compression and the solid lifters allowed it to rev
higher. It has deeper groove pulleys so the belts don't fly off. It
looks completely correct. Has upper and lower ignition, aluminum
finned valve covers, air cleaner and stock exhaust manifolds with
heat tube going to the choke. Has correct fuel filter, spring clamp
battery cables, correct hoses and clamps. The wiring is neatly
wrapped. Has the rubber splash shields over the suspension. It is
clean, painted and proper looking.
UNDERSIDE: It was off the frame and completely restored. Recently
cleaned and touched up. Mint floors are still raw fiberglass. The
chassis is painted black. Has spare tire carrier. The Muncie
4-speed is vin # matched to the car. The original rear end has the
proper codes. It's a 3.36 posi. Corvettes all had front and rear
independent suspension. Bottom of the motor is clean, has original
canister oil filter.
I've been all around this car top to bottom, in and out. I've
driven it. I am impressed with the entire car. It feels right.
Doors click shut, seats are firm, shifts easy, clutch is smooth,
takes off like a rocket. An investment that's ready for show and
