This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette convertible was restored in the 2000s and retains its numbers-matching L76 327ci V8 and 4-speed manual transmission. The car received its first NCRS Top Flight award in 2009 with a score of 96.8, a second Top Flight award in 2015 with a score of 97.9, and a Bloomington Gold certificate in 2015. This example was originally sold to its first owner on April 8, 1965 through Chevrolet in Bottineau in North Dakota. Documentation includes the original proof of purchase, sale receipts, some original dealer documents, letters from previous owners, and more. The selling dealer purchased this car from Corvette Mike in Anaheim, California before importing it to Canada in December 2016. It is now offered with the aforementioned documentation, photos of the restoration, a factory hardtop, and a clean Ontario title.
The restoration is said to have been carried out to meticulous standards using correct parts and trim throughout. In these pictures, the body appears straight from all angles while the brightwork, soft top, and glass all look to be in nice shape. A factory hardtop is included with the sale.
Factory 15″ hubcaps and wheels are wrapped in Firestone Super Sport tires at all four corners.
The interior was also completely redone during the restoration process, including new upholstery and carpeting. The cabin shows little discernible wear in pictures, with correct trim in place.
Everything inside has been kept in stock specification down to the factory radio. The odometer currently shows 299 miles, though total chassis mileage is unknown. Interested parties are encouraged to look through the photo gallery, which displays the condition inside and out.
