1965 Chevrolet Corvette Silver-Black Leather

Correctly restored and highly optioned Corvette convertible with original matching numbers 327-350 hp motor-transmission-differential, factory original body/trim/VIN tags, and Silver Pearl paint with a factory installed black leather interior. The odometer is at 56,100 miles but the car is titled with the mileage exempt.

A premium body-off restoration was performed in 1997-8 by the highly acclaimed Nabers Brothers of Houston and is documented. These restorations are ~$100,000 if purchased today.

Awards include Bloomington Gold (1998), National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) Regional Top Flight (Frisco, TX, 2015), and NCRS National Top Flight (96.9% score, San Antonio, TX, July 2017).

History: GM official production date is 2/3/1965 and was delivered to Richardson Chevrolet in Houston per NCRS Shipping Data Report (included). Original purchaser was Harry Pearce and delivered new on 2/9/1965.

Documentation: original owner’s manual, original warranty booklet (Protect-O-Plate), NCRS GM Shipping Report, a high quality reproduction window sticker, judging sheets, ribbons/awards, and confirmation of the restoration from Nabers Brothers.

Options: Black leather (402AA), A/C (C60), power windows (A31), hard top (C07), 350HP/327 cubic inch V8 (L79), power steering (N40), telescopic steering column (N36), beautiful NOS unrestored teakwood steering wheel (N32), 3.70 posi-traction differential (G81), AM/FM radio (U69), off-road exhaust (N11), and tinted glass-all windows (A01).

Results from 2017 NCRS National Judging: Overall 96.9%, Operations 100%, Interior 97.0%, Exterior 96.4%, Mechanical 97.0%, Chassis 93.4%. Paint: 100% on originality and 95% on condition.

Operations: The car received an Operations score of 100% at the 2017 NCRS National event. It runs, shifts, brakes and handles perfectly. It does not smoke and requires NO added oil between the 1,000 mile changes I have done. Cold start is immediate with proper choke function and RPMs (https://youtu.be/HhcOTZjLMJo). All other operational systems (except the right turn signal return mechanism) are fully functional.
