#'s Matching ""L79"" 327c.i. 350hp - 4 Speed - Milano Maroon
The team at LaFontaine Classic Cars is at it again - bringing another highly desirable, rare piece of sports car history to market. Feast your eyes on this beautiful 1965 Corvette ""L79"" 350hpcomplete with a numbers matching drivetrain.
Chevrolet only produced 4,700 ""L79"" models with the potent 327/350hp engine, when considering paint and trim codes thiscar is one of just a few hundred, making this a very rare find.This example was restored during prior long term ownershipwith excellent attention to detail and a theme of keeping as many original components as possible!
The factory original drivetrain remains along with the factory correct interior and exterior colors matching the trim tag (still intact on the cross support under the glove compartment)
This C2 was very clean before the restoration process allowing use of its original no hit body as a canvas for the factory paint code ""MM"" Milano Maroon. Once the body was prepped and primed, the eye-catching hue was meticulously sprayed bringing this back to its former glory. The trim, emblems, and moldings were all reconditioned or replaced with new before final assembly while a new white convertible top by Al Knoch was installed providing the perfect contrast!
Looking inside you will find the correct black vinyl bucket seats with center console just as it came when new. Peering through the gorgeous factory 3-spoke wood steering wheel youwill find the dash gauge cluster retains all of the factory gauges including the 160-mph speedometer and the 7000 rpm tachometer with a working dash clock just as it rolled off the assembly line back in 1965. The center console houses the factory 4 speed shifter handle bolted to the original 4-speed transmission. Nothing will put a grin on your face quite like rowing through the gears with the top down! Centered in the dash is the optional AM/FM radio w/ powered antenna, factory installed clock, along with the functional heat and air flow controls. Lifting the hood reveals the original, numbers matching 327 cubic inch block topped with all the correct L79 components. A correct Holley carburetor bolted to the correct Winters cast aluminum intake manifold. With 11.0:1 compression ratio, aggressive camshaft profile, and high flowing stock exhaust manifolds, this RPO code ""L79"" pumps out an ample 350 horsepower when considering this cars weight. Transferring that power to the rear axle is the strong, reliable, M21 4-speed transmission with correct VIN stamped on the case. Adding to the rarity, this Corvette is equipped with the option code ""AO"" which stands for3.70 gears with Posi-traction differential, which is viewed by many as the perfect median of off-line acceleration and highway crushability. The underside of this convertible reveals the factory fiberglass floors in great condition, newer brake and fuel lines, full dual exhaust system in great condition exiting under the rear bumper. New suspension components including front upper and lower control arms, rear transverse leaf spring with end links as well as lower trailing link bars and bushings.
