1965 Chevrolet Corvette

1965 Corvette Coupe Restomod built using a Jamison Corvette, 3 tube NASCAR style chassis with a complete 1996 Corvette LT4 driveline. Car was completed 10 yrs ago and only driven 7500 miles since completion. Body and paint are excellent. Body fit and lines are laser straight, much improved over factory build. Paint color is a metallicBurgundy with a black interior. The quarter panels were widened 2" and lower flairs added toaccommodate the larger wheels and tires of the donor driveline...this was done while maintaining the original body lines and wheel opening characteristics. The 65 roof vent "gill" openings were removed to give a cleaner look. All the chrome was replated and the stainless polished.Car was initially built with coil overs all around but after driving was converted to the original rear fiberglass transverse spring that gave a betterhandlingride and less hop in tight turns ( rear original coil overs go with car).The interior uses the 1996 black leather seats. The dash was converted toaccommodateAutometer Ultralite gauges with the clockbuiltto match the gauges. Vintage Air Surefit A/C system was installed using the original Chev A/C compressor. The car still retains its fresh air vents for seasonal air flow. All of the interior trimcomponentswere replaced at the time of build ie. rugs, door panels, headliner, dash pads, etc. All window glass is excellent and factory tinted. Factory power windows are fully functional. Power antenna is alsofunctionaland factory located. The Nardi steering wheel is in excellent condition and was signed by Duntov in 1992 and the glove box door signed in 1994, while IattendedNCRS National conventions.The engine is a 1996 stock LT4 with a reprogrammed computer to match installed components and extra power. Coated block hugger headers areinstalled and run into 2.25" pipes with and X pipe and Magnaflow mufflers, exiting thru the rear valance with 1969 tips. 1996 factory power steering (rack and pinion) and cooler is utilized. 1996 brake components, booster and 13" front rotors are present and give great stopping ability. Cooling isaccomplished using the 1996 radiator and fan assys. A new water pump and thermostat was fittedatbuildtime as well as new distributor to prevent future problems ( these itemshavealways been problems with LT engines). Thetransmissionis ZF 6 spd manual. The clutch assy and slavecylinderwas replaced with new when the car was built. The rear is a 3:42 Dana 44 which was the optional rear and a heavy duty piece.The car has chrome ZO6 style wheels with new Goodyear F1 Z rated tires, front 255/45 r17 and rear 285/40 r17. The 1996 spare tire carrier and spare is mounted under the car in theoriginalfactory position and can beutilizedif required. Headlamps were updated using replacement halogen bulb type lamps in place of sealed beams. Headlamps work well with rebuilt motors.The Corvette is a pleasure to drive and enjoy. It alwaysattractsa crowd and everyone wants to know how the wheels and tires were fitted until they realize the full modifications. It runs on mid grade gas and gets 25 miles to the gallon (about 1800 rpm at 80). The entire underside of the car was sprayed with Pick up bed Rhino liner(black) before the body was installed on the frame.
