For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Corvette in Milford, Michigan

Vehicle Description

#'s Matching L79, 4-speed manual transmission, numbers matching drivetrain, factory interior and exterior colors, runs and drives great!
The team at LaFontaine Classic Cars presents this beautiful 1965 Corvette convertible that has undergone a frame on restoration some time ago that has held up very well - a sure sign that this Corvette was well taken care of by the previous owners. During the refurbishing process, the exterior received a fresh coat of the factory color Milano Maroon (trim tag code M-M) to bring it back to its former glory. The original bumpers, emblems, and beautiful chrome/stainless brightwork was all reused while a new white convertible top by Al Knoch was installed providing the perfect contrast.
This C2 isn't powered by the more common base 327ci engine, lifting the hood reveals the numbers matching 327/350hp (RPO code L79) power plant in its stock form including correct intake manifold, correct part number Holley 4-barrel carburetor, air cleaner, and much more. The chrome ignition cover is still intact along with the factory installed spark plug wire shields. Up front is a new OEM style radiator to keep things cool.
Behind the engine is a factory, VIN number stamped, Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission that shifts smooth and easy. The internal gears and synchros feel to be in great condition as upshifting and down shifting are a breeze. Following the driveshaft rearward, you will find the stock rear axle stamped with ""AO 5 18 65"". The ""AO"" stands for 3.70 gears with Posi-traction differential, the remaining numbers are the date the axle was assembled, May 18, 1965.
The interior is finished in the factory color trim tag code ""STD"" which refers to black. All components inside are in like-new condition from the seat covers and door panels, to the dash board and gauge panel. Centered in the dash is an AM/FM radio, factory installed clock, along with the functional heat and air flow controls. The driver's side features a gorgeous factory 3-spoke wood steering wheel that frames the large speedometer and tachometer mounted in the dash monitoring vehicle and engine speeds. Between the bucket seats is the center console housing the stock chrome shifter and original ashtray with factory seat belts on either side.
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. 1965 was the second year of the 4-wheel disc brakes as a standard option on Corvette, and this brake system works great with its power assist.
Rolling stock consists of factory 15"" steel wheels with Corvette spinner style hub caps, each wrapped with 215/75/15 white-wall radial tires adding to the smooth and predictable ride and handling.
