1965 Corvette Convertible Project

For Sale – 1965 Corvette Convertible project with a non-numbers matching small block and T10 4 speed. I have been working on the vehicle for over 3 years but have to sell it for personal reasons. You can see what the car looked like when I first bought the car (first picture). The chassis/running gear are completely restored. The body still needs work. I have the clear title for the vehicle.

See below for details on all parts of the vehicle and terms of the auction including the required non-refundable deposit of $500.
