We will start off with the exterior of this Corvette. The body on
it is stunning as all the body lines flow beautifully from front to
rear. It is set up with the Stinger hood with Fuel Injection
Emblems alluding to the LS7 power. We can also see the rear quarter
have been flared to better accompany the wider wheels and give you
better ride on the highway. Everything is covered the Jet-Black
base coat clear coat paint that has been polished to a mirror
finish and is slick as ribbon. Both front and rear bumpers are done
in chrome and have a brilliant finish along with the window trim.
The headlights are working as they should and out back it has had
new taillights installed and we can see the dual rear exiting
exhaust. This '65 has also had a new Hartz soft top installed
that's also done in black. To finish off the look its sitting on
Z06 18" Chrome Wheels with Pirelli Tires.
Next, we will look at the interior of this Convertible. On the
inside it's done in Black with leather seats that have the Gray
Accents and custom stitch Z065 to represent the Z06 options in the
'65 model Corvette. The seats are power and are working as they
should. It also has Power windows with controls in the consoler.
New door panels have been installed along with all new carpet.
Looking at the dash you can see that all the gauges were upgraded
and are working as they should. It also has a new steering wheel
with the Paddle Shifters and digital display showing you what gears
you are in. This does have the tilt column and the automatic
shifter is in the console. A new radio and sounds system have been
installed along with vintage air conditioning with all the controls
being at the dash level of the console. The glove box carries the
same custom Z065 insignia. The battery has been relocated to the
storage area that also houses the sub and amp.
Finally, we will get to the heartbeat of this Chevrolet. Under the
hood it is powered by then LS7 Z06 engine. It's been seamlessly
installed so that you wouldn't even know that this beast didn't
belong in this '65. Everything under the hood has a gorgeous detail
and you can tell that it has had countless hours spent on ensuring
a quality install. The LS7 is mated to the 4L80 Automatic Trans
that as we mentioned options fully automatic or the manual paddle
shift. When you look under this Corvette, you are sure to be
impressed as it's sitting on the SRIII Motorsports tube frame
chassis that use the Z06 Suspension from a C6 Corvette. It also
boasts Willwood Four Wheel disc Brakes. Of course the Brakes are
Power and it also comes with Power Steering. This car has been
meticulously built to give you the best of both worlds. You can get
in this car, turn the key, and go anywhere. It runs phenomenal on
the highway and will make a great addition to any stable!
