1965 Chevrolet Corvette Glen Green with White Interior Additional Info:

This very special 59,000 miles car was built March 3, 1965 and delivered to Jerry McCarthy Chevrolet in Detroit, MI. It has the following options: J50 Power Brakes; 437BA White vinyl interior with black trim; M20 4-Speed close ratio transmission; Z01 Convenience Group; A01 Tinted Glass; C07 Auxiliary Hard Top; 900GG Glen Green paint; A31 Power Windows; N432 Teakwood Steering Wheel; P48 Quick Take Off Wheels ( 5 Western by Kelsey Hayes); C05 Convertible Top White; U69 PB AM/FM Radio; N40 Power Steering; T01 775X15 2 Ply Goldlines; N14 Side Dual Exhaust (factory); G81 Positract Axle 336R; and L79 350 HP V8 Engine (see photo of repo window sticker). The engine, transmission and rear end are, to the best of my knowledge, original and have the correct VIN numbers and assembly/casting dates and codes (see photos). The car was owned for nearly 30 years by an automotive engineer from the Detroit area and he was very anal regarding the mechanical functioning of the car (rebuilt the tranny, engine, etc.) and oversaw the frame-off restoration. During the restoration, he came to know the car very well and took the time to document the various numbers and dates (see photos). I purchased the car (my 128th Corvette) and began a meticulous search for the “little”, but expensive, things like an NOS ashtray with the correct logo on the back (see photo of specifications sheet),NOS Schwitzer fan clutch, etc. Even the brackets that hold the rear of the seats from lifting have the correct logos. Everything works as it should and, yes, the clock still has the original-style mechanism. If you are the successful bidder, you will come to appreciate just how anal I was in bringing the car to its current level of perfection. During my ownership, I have driven the car less than 2,000 miles, but can honestly say it is the best mid-year I have owned or driven. It goes down the road straight (even with bias-ply tires), rides very well, doesn’t rattle or overheat, has good acceleration and sounds great. It was scheduled for its first NCRS judging this May, but, with the virus upon us, the best laid plans of mice and men went astray. I’m selling it because right now it’s at its peak and, if I don’t, I’ll want to continue driving it and run the risk of hitting a deer and having to start over. The new owner will be able to take a car that is virtually unknown to the Corvette community and be the first to have it judged. It will do very well. Good luck with yur bidding.
