Vehicle Description

1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible First Owner: 1965 to 1993, Second Owner: 1993 to present - Frame Off Restoration in 2010 - Numbers Matching 327ci/300hp V8 - Factory Rally Red (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, it's possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) We've been fortunate to offer a number of late C2 Corvettes lately - a majority of them in red, but this is the first one that is a red over red color combination. It's a simple color combination that is so pleasing to the eye as it flows over the curves of the exterior and the double bump dashboard. The other details on these late C2 body style cars such as the small round front turn signals, pop up headlights, thin chrome bumpers, fender vents, and bright wheels with knockoffs are all pleasing to the eye, and an integral part of an iconic and revolutionary design. Corvettes and the color red just go great together. The all american sports car that has stood the test of time, and is still desirable to all ages today. This car, which was frame off restored in 2010 and is finished in the correct Rally Red (code U) is no different. Top up there is a nice contrast to the Rally Red thanks to the black soft top. Inside the car is the correct red vinyl interior (code 407) featuring bucket seats, vertically mounted radio, three spoke wood rimmed steering wheel, and shiny shift knob. When the car was restored, the interior was not completely restored - many of the original pieces were retained such as knobs/switches, gauge bezels, door panels, radio, and shifter surround. Seat upholstery, carpet, and the soft top were replaced during the restoration. The aforementioned components create an honest look for a special car that is 55 years old. Under the hood, the 300 horsepower 327ci V8 offers a 4 BBL carburetor sitting atop the intake manifold. A 4-speed manual transmission handles gear selection. Options include power steering, front disc brakes, reverse lockout shifter, and 15 multi-spoke wheels with white stripe radials. This Vette is clean inside, outside, and underneath. The car had a frame-off restoration in 2010. This red on red C2 Vette Roadster is a beautiful car that Corvette collectors should consider. A 327ci V8 with a 4 speed, convertible, numerous options, and nicely restored! Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
