Silver Pearl w/Black interior, 327/350hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.

The second generation or mid-year Corvette became an instant classic when it was introduced in ’62 with the ’63 Split Window Coupe. No one had ever seen anything quite like it before . . . or since!  With each passing year, the car was steadily improved as horsepower and cubic inches grew, as well as suspension and brake development.

By ’65, Corvette was truly a milestone sports car. Four-wheel disc brakes became standard equipment for the first time, optional mechanical fuel injection was making its final appearance and the 396ci big block engine was making its debut. Actually, engine choices were plentiful in ’65. Six to be exact! The most ever offered in a Corvette! One of the most popular was RPO L79. This was the hydraulic lifter 327 with aluminum intake manifold, special cam, and a 600 cfm Holley carb. These engines were only available with a Muncie 4-spd. manual transmission and these were and are an absolute blast to drive! They were considered one of the best performance options ever offered in a Corvette and still are at or near the top of list of Corvette aficionados.

If you are in the market for one of the best L79 Convertible’s on the market, look no further than this example right here.  From its glowing Silver Pearl exterior to its pristine Black interior, this ’65 just shouts . . . DRIVE ME!!  The engine starts right up and idles with that nice lope.  Throttle response is instant, it tracks down the road straight and stops on the proverbial dime.  Options include; Both hard and soft tops, Teak steering wheel, Tinted glass, AM/FM radio, 3.70 Positraction rear end, Offroad exhaust and more!

The stunning, frame off restoration looks like it was completed last week and all the hard work was awarded with the prestigious N.C.R.S Zora Arkus-Duntov Mark of Excellence Award!  Extensive documentation of the restoration with a binder showing just about every part number logged, reciepts, owner’s kit, Top Flight judging sheets and much more!  The car has even been featured in Vette Magazine!  What more needs to be said?
