1965 Corvette FOR SALE - SOLD

DESCRIPTION: This 65 Corvette represents what Corvette owning is all about, a fun-collector- investment-driver car. For those unaware, the 365hp 327 is the fuely engine with a holley carburetor instead of the fuel injection. We have been over every inch of this car in our shop since its owner, Bill Maharis, bought it about 14 years ago. Bill's ownership of this car can be sumarized as tweaking it for the next guy. He spent little time driving it and much money improving it. He is now into Porsches seriously and told us to sell it. This is the kind of Corvette that represents the best value/investment and fun ownership.  

RESTORATION: The car is mostly original with restoration work performed on only its fundamentals. The engine was recently rebuilt to original specs, less than 200 miles since rebuild. We replaced the seats and carpet a few years ago which look as though they were done last week, since the car is always garaged and never driven. The entire front suspension was just done in our shop last week. Most of the parts replaced were original, not touched since factory assembly in 1965. During the suspension work we inspected the frame and critical weldments near the motor mounts and front cross member. Our inspection confirmed that this car has low mileage, was never hit, and was never driven hard. The frame looked like a one year old car. Last year we replaced the gas tank, carburetor, and fuel pump, whose faulty condition were due to lack of use. We also installed poly-locks on the rocker arms to minimize the adjustment intervals. Brake calipers were replaced with stainless cored and a new exhaust system was also recently installed.
