1965 Chevy Corvette ConvertibleWell Optioned, 4-Speed, Restored for Show or Touring
This is a restored 1965 Corvette Convertible with the iconic L79 327 cid 4-Speed that would be terrific for local and regional shows or for tours. We love the Nassau Blue with matching blue vinyl interior. She is well optioned with a factory hardtop, side pipes and knock-off wheels.
While the early history of this Corvette is unknown, Thomas Citrani of Winter Garden, FL acquired her in about 2017 and commenced a restoration. The restoration quality is very nice, excellent for regional shows and touring. By 2021, she was acquired by Fred Marcus from El Paso, TX.
The Nassau Blue livery (Paint Code FF) has excellent shine and luster and is in touring condition today. There is one small scratch on the passenger side front fender that is noticeable upon close inspection. The Nassau Blue paint is its original and correct factory color. The exterior and matching factory hard top overall show very well. The white soft top is in overall good condition. Much of the chrome has also been restored and shows very well. The side pipes are said to be original equipment and look fantastic as well as adding a beautiful exhaust note. The knock-off wheels and redline tires are a recent addition and are in excellent condition. The two-tone hood was updated to a 1967 version during the restoration.
The Blue Vinyl (Trim Code 414B) interior was also restored and appears in very nice condition today. The Blue carpet appears in new condition. She has the optional adjustable telescoping steering column and is complete with the teak steering wheel.
This Corvette was ordered new with the higher performance L79 engine package. The L79 is the higher output 360 hp 327 cid V8 with a single four-barrel carburetor. The power is transmitted through its close throw four-speed transmission and Positraction. The engine was rebuilt and balanced and blueprinted in July of 2020 and has accumulated about 2,000 miles since. The engine rebuild was performed by Ben Donhoff Automotive in Melbourne, FL. The engine shows its original engine numbers as from the factory, but we have been told that the block is a replacement over counter exchange.
The car comes complete with numerous servicing and engine rebuild receipts and a parts catalogue.
