1965 Chevrolet Corvette description
Here is a beautiful example of the mark, its a 1965 Covette convertible. Frame off restored, Top Flight blue ribbon winner. 350 horsepower 327 motor, with factory Transistorized Ignition system. It also has factory power steering. Being offered by Bill Caldwell Corvettes. It has Knock Off wheels in excellent condition and brand new tires. Side Pipes, they are like brand new. This is a soft top only car, no hard top, ever. The top is in as new condition and fits well. Same owner since 1999. Purchased as frame off restored at that time from Napoli Classic Motor Cars in Milford, Ct. It has its original motor, with all its original stampings,original transmission, differential, heads, 2818 holley and TI ignition system. It has its real original Vin and Trim tags. Yes, everything matches. It was meticulously cared for and loved by a retired Engineer, he and his wife loved and enjoyed it. I have known the car since they purchased it. It was repainted in 2014, its all original GM fiberglass, the old finish was completely stripped prior to refinishing, and the motor/transmission were removed to freshen up. The rear suspension was also removed to detail again. Sadly, the owner passed away during this phase. So I was asked to complete the work and sell the car. So, here is what was done: The original 3:55 differential was resealed and painted, the rear spring repainted, new bushings, etc and detailing. The motor was completely rebuilt, using new .030" over sealed power domed pistons, forged hyperutectic, same compression ratio as original but with a composition head gasket yeilds a lower comp ration, now runs with 93 octane fuel no issues. The correct as original factory camshaft was used, new stock lifters, the heads have all new 2.02" SS valves, screw in studs and guide plates and comp Cam roller tip rockers with pushrods to match All new Comp Cam springs. The exhaust manifolds were resurfaced for flatness and restored, no gaskets were used where they mate to the heads, as original. The original intake was cleaned but not glass beaded, looks great, the 2818 Holley cabr was rebuilt. The TI distributor was rebuilt and the Amplifier upgraded to the newest KB electronics module. It runs super on 93 octane fuel. The stock flywheel got a new ring gear, resurfaced with a new stock clutch and the entire assembly was balanced. The original close ratio muncie 4 speed transmission was rebuilt with all new bearings and seals, syncrhos, these were updated to the later hubs and used torque lock sliders. All parts purchased from Larry at D&L transmissions. All the internal gears were in great shape and reused, correct GL-4 gear oil was used. All new antifreeze, correct high zinc motor oil, etc. The motor was primed and painted and detailed to the highest standards. It has been broken in and run and I have put a couple of hundred miles on the car to ensure all is well. It runs flawlessly, motor is strong, sounds great, pulls as a 350 hp motor should and the trans works smoothly. The shifter was also rebuilt and is set on the short throw currently. The entire under hood area is highly detailed, as is the entire undercarriage. The tires also are brand new and just mounted and balanced. NCRS delivery data certificate is included, same owner since 1999,it has records records back to 1981 Turn key for summer!! Needs nothing but a new owner!
