1965 Chevrolet Corvette L78 Additional Info:

L88's Predecessor

1965 L78 Stingray Racer

The REAL DEAL! Recently confirmed by NCRS judge of its "396 big block"L78 authenticity. He also confirmed the very rare Options/non options, 456 gears, and the block being a L78 big block NOM. A real garage find (a say this tongue in cheek) as my car has never been registered in any of the Corvette registries, Never been in any of the Corvette clubs, Never been to any car shows and driven very little since owned. Never been out of the garage much since 1986. The NCRSjudge was very surprised andexcited to see this 1965 rare build big block racer did exist and is unknown in the corvette circles. I was told by owner in 1987 that the car originally started out as a drag car. I have pictures in its race form before 2004 restore.

The Car has a L78 nom "396" motor born several months after my car. Over the years it has been confirmed by 5 different Corvette pros with combined experience of well over 100 years that this car is a real big block, NOT a clone or Tribute car. The Real Deal! As in any investment due-diligence is always a must but you will not be disappointed. A California car that has always been garage since owned.
I have will share the pictures of the car in race form and the name of the NCRS judge to the future buyer. The Corvette is in Driver Condition. Clean title in hand and MOTIVATED TO SELL! The car is in DRIVER condition. There are scratches on the exterior panel behind drivers seat where the hardtop rest. Stock mirror frame good but the glass fell out and will need new mirror glass replaced. I will be posting more pictures throughout the weekend.
