Technical specifications, photos and description:
In 1965 Chevrolet manufactured 23. 62 Corvette Stingrays. 8. 86 were Coupes. and only 2. 23 had factory air conditioning which makes this car very rare. In 1965 vertical louvers on the side of the car were now made functional. The depressions on the standard hood were removed. The rocker panels were also restyled. The most important feature on the 1965 Corvette was disc brakes were now made standard equipment. This particular car original came with a 327 cubic inch engine however at some point the original engine was replaced with a later model Chevrolet 350 cubic inch engine.
This Corvette has had a complete “body off” restoration approximately three years ago. Over $50. 00 was spent at the highly specialized “Stingray Auto Tech” Corvette restoration shop in Mississauga Ontario. The frame was sandblasted. repainted and all the factory chalk marks were put in the appropriate places. All the brakes were replaced. rear differential was rebuilt. new exhaust installed. body mounts were replaced. the entire suspension was dissembled. rebuilt. new shocks and springs were installed. New Goodyear tires were also installed. The air conditioning compressor was rebuilt and all hoses and connections replaced. The engine and transmission were rebuilt with new bearings. gaskets. and clutch. The carburetor was also rebuilt. The result was a car which drove as nice as it did the day it rolled off the assembly line. The only items not addressed at this time was the paint work. and the seats which needed to be reupholstered.
We purchased this car in the spring of 2014. At this point we removed the seats and had new foam installed with new leather seat covers. This was done at a local auto upholstery shop. (Please note this car came originally equipped with vinyl seat covers. ) We then had the car completely sanded down. we removed the hood and doors and realigned all panels to ensure all gaps were even. The car was then primed in epoxy primer. and painted base-clear back to it's original color ''Milano Maroon''. Once the car was painted all body emblems were replaced with new ones. We then removed the original spinner hubcaps and replaced them with brand new reproduction knock off wheels.
Mechanically the car still runs like it did when the frame off restoration was completed. Everything is in perfect working order with the exception of the clock. Cosmetically the original door panels are showing some wear. the rear window glass has some fine scratches which can't be removed. the glove box cover has some minor dents. and the rear bumpers have some minor pitting on the underside. The paint is flawless. If you're looking for an air conditioned mid-year Corvette which has been completely restored without having to incur the expense associated with a frame off restoration you have just found that car.
