1965 Corvette Convertible
This corvette has a fresh big block motor in it. Engine was rebuilt less than 50 miles ago. Engine was bored .030 oversize and installed forged pistons. This car has a manual transmission and side pipes. Sound/drives/runs great. Engine was rebuilt a few years ago and customer was never able to take delivery of it.
This car was originally a small block car and had the big block added to it early in life.Also proper front big block springs were installed. As you can see by the stickers, this car was a big track winner back in the day. Great vintage race car or drag car. This car was prominently run at Thompson drag raceway in northeast Ohio and was champion numerous times. This car was also shown at many car shows in the Cleveland area as well in its early days. This car only has 27k miles it, they were mostly put on Â¼ mile at a time.
Current owner bought this car in 1998 from the original family owner. He was friends with the owner and has known the car since new. He always wanted to own it and finally had an opportunity in 1998. Planned to keep this car forever, so put a lot of money into the car restoring the mechanicals of it. Unfortunately have to sell due to finances.
Car was delivered from Baushild Cheverolet in Cleveland on July 1, 1965. Still have the original owners guide and the Protecto plate. Data plates are still located in the car, under glove box. Was a Cleveland car until current owner bought it.
Current owner has done a lot of work to car to bring the mechanicals up to date to make this a great driving car. During the engine rebuild process the following extras were done.

Car paint is in pretty bad shape - it was repainted in blue with a lot of metal flake it in. The paint is cracking and crazing all over the car. The Convertible top is shrunk and does not latch in place. No major tears in it, but it is faded and the rear window is fogged over. Car does have the hardtop with it. The interior appears original and worn. Car has power windows and they do work. No power steering, no A/C.
