Goldwood Yellow w/Black interior L76 327/365hp 4-speed manual
transmission.Going into its third year of production the '65
Corvette was really coming into its own. This was a milestone year
for Corvette. A year of firsts . . . and lasts. Four-wheel disc
brakes were introduced in '65 as was the legendary big-block
engine; coming in at a one year only 396ci displacement. One the
way out was mechanical fuel injection and drum brakes which were
offered as a "credit delete" on a small number of '65's just to get
rid of the remaining drum brake inventory.There were no less than
six engines to choose from this year. The most ever offered in a
Corvette! From the base 327/250hp small block to the mighty
396/425hp big block and just about everything in between!
Carbureted to fuel injected. Hydraulic to mechanical lifters
automatics to 4-speed manual transmissions! You want it? You got
it!One of the lesser-known now but popular in the day engine
choices was the L76 327 with 365hp. The was basically the same as
the L84 327 fuel-injected engine but with a more user friendly if
not less exotic 4bbl Holley carburetor replacing the fuelie unit.
Mated up to a 4-spd. transmission this was the hot set-up for '65.
A high-revving torquey engine that was a blast to take through the
gears! It was also the last year it was offered.Striking is the
word that comes to mind when looking at this Goldwood Yellow L76
Convertible. The beautiful (and rare) exterior color is nicely
contrasted with a Black vinyl interior and is crowned with a White
soft top. It rolls on Gold wall radial tires with bright spinner
wheel covers. Other options include; power 4-wheel disc brakes and
AM/FM radio. It's been completely frame-off restored and is an
N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award winner! This is the car you cruise
Pacific Coast Hwy. in on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Comes with
maintenance receipts N.C.R.S. Shipping Data Report the Top Flight
