There''s not much I can tell you about how awesome the mid-year Corvettes are that you don''t already know, so let''s just get to the details on this beautiful 1965 coupe. First, the restoration sparkles in a way that you''d expect from a high-end collectable. The engine is a 300 horsepower 327 linked to a 4-speed gearbox, so it''s a blast to drive, and it comes from a collection of other exceptional fiberglass sports cars, so it has led a very, very good life. Nassau Blue was the #1 color in 1965 and looking at this stunning ''Vette, is there really any question why? Embodying the finest of the Corvette spirit, it''s both sporty and elegant, giving the Corvette the ability to blend in anywhere, from the track to a high-end restaurant in a swanky part of town. Of course, the top-flight bodywork certainly helps, with laser-straight fiberglass that''s surely worlds better than it was when it was new. Corvette fans will be looking for the usual flaws, such as cracks around the headlight doors, a hood that sits too high or too low, and rounded-off edges on the perimeter body line, but it''s all expertly done here and lives up to expectations. In fact, if you''re into NCRS judging, this one might just be too nice, which is hardly a demerit in my book. The chrome is all beautiful, shiny, and clear, the glass shows very few signs of age, and, well, if you want a nice ''Vette, you could do a lot worse than this. Wow! The bright blue interior is as well restored as the bodywork, with inviting buckets that beckon you towards the open road. It also received new carpets and door panels that show virtually no wear since the work was done, and the color is an extraordinary match to the paint-I wonder if that was intentional? A wood-rimmed steering wheel frames an instrument panel full of restored gauges with beautiful, crisp markings and a correct tachometer. In the center stack, the original AM/FM radio with its unique vertical arrangement still delivers the entertainment, and the original clock remains in place as well. Clear floor mats protect the carpets without hiding anything underneath, adding to the completely OEM appearance, and it appears that even the seat belts have been re-webbed for both safety and appearance''s sake. The engine is a 327 cubic inch unit rebuilt to L75 300-horsepower specifications, and when linked to the 4-speed Muncie gearbox, it''s a fast, fun, formidable performer. However, given the quality of the restoration, it has probably never seen anything close to redline and has never been driven in anger. The Chevy Orange paint on the block is bright, the chrome details are superb, and all the correct little stuff is there, from the blue-stripe hoses and tower clamps to the reproduction decals on the valve covers. Clean ram''s horn exhaust manifolds feed a reproduction dual exhaust system that sounds right, and the chassis shows the evidence that this was a complete, frame-off restoration that has only seen light use since it was completed. Lovely knock-off wheels wearing 205/75/15 gold-line radials give it an authentic look but improved road manners if you''re the sort who likes to drive.
