1965 Chevrolet Corvette 5-Speed
Current Bid: $50,000 (USD) by:
Paso Robles, California
This 1965 Corvette underwent a ground-up restoration less than four years ago and is powered by a 327ci/350hp V8 paired with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. Features include Vintage air conditioning and heat, and side pipes. This C2 is finished in red over black and is offered with documentation of the restoration and a clear Montana title.
A professional red repaint was applied at the time of the restoration approximately four years ago, and new upgraded chrome door handles, hood latches, and hinges were affixed. All glass was replaced with new pieces and free of chips or cracks, and the power antennae and headlights are in working order.
Factory correct Rallye wheels with beauty rings are wrapped in redline tires, and handling is managed by power steering and power disc brakes on all four corners.
The all-black interior is complemented by a wood grain 3-spoke steering wheel, a restored dash and gauges, and a new shifter that has been modified to a factory look. The seller reports that the refurbishment of the interior consumed over 300 hours.
Modern conveniences include heat and air conditioning from Vintage Air, a working clock, and a Custom Auto Sound stereo system.
Power comes from a 327/350 V8 with an aluminum radiator and electric fan conversion, and it is mated to a Tremec Silver Sport 5-speed manual transmission with a Lakewood bell housing. Additional upgrades include a transmission cross member removal kit, a new driveshaft, lightweight flywheel, and new U-joints for improved drivability, reduced engine bogging, and a lower cruising RPM.
The exhaust system is equipped with factory style side pipes and covers.
