For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Corvette in Fayetteville, Arkansas

$175,000 (OBO)  

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Corvette LS3 resto-mod has undergone a full frame-off build with less than 1,000 miles since its completion. I purchased this car at the 2019 (January) Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction, after spending 4 days prior to the actual auction talking to the two owners of this car from Flat Out Autos (Jonesboro, Arkansas) that also built the car. The body is finished in the original Nassau Blue, and is immaculate. The blue & white interior is 'as new' as well, and the leather seats are very comfortable. Power comes from an LS3 6.2 liter engine with a custom built intake from LS Classics. It gives the appearance of being equipped with a vintage Rochester fuel injection system. Custom milled valve covers and valley plates with oil fill have been installed on the painted aluminum engine, and coils relocated with custom brackets. The engine is backed by a 6 speed automatic transmission and a modified stock power glide shifter. This auto also comes with a Concept One accessory drive kit and Vintage Air. The engine bay has been smooth and filled but painted satin black for a clean OEM look. Custom cast iron exhaust manifolds flow into factory side pipes. Front and rear bumpers have been sectioned and fit tight to the body, and are refinished in beautiful chrome. This car is set on a custom Hammertone power-coated original chassis with QA1 coil overs at all four corners, as well as Van Steel offset trailing arms and tubular A-arms up front, and huge Wilwood brakes front and rear, with drilled 2 piece rotors. The 17" knock-off wheels were custom milled and polished by Curtis Speed, and have red line tires. The stereo comes with an audio cable, but I often choose to listen to the engine & exhaust instead.

After two years of ownership, I'm selling this car. It is fun to drive, but I now have a '63 Corvette convertible to take its place (see last photo of the garage).
