Lot #1277 1965 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE
Lot #1277 - This was a body-off, fully custom, high-performance build with every aspect of the car being refined to meet the designer's vision. The car's performance was paramount and no expense was spared when it was time to spec components. Powered by a big block matched with aluminum heads and custom headers that are fully wrapped and ceramic-coated. The car has a fully painted and custom-fabricated chassis with matching suspension components and spindles, as well as custom-built fully-independent rear suspension and ride height adjustable coilovers on all four corners. The exhaust is a custom-fabricated black ceramic-coated system with electronic cutouts designed to divert the exhaust out of 4" chrome side pipes. The wheels are Billet Specialties 19" and 20" wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport tires, and the car has all-wheel 6-piston Wilwood brakes. As far as cosmetics, the valve covers, heads, block, water pump and custom-fabricated oil pan are all meticulously painted to match the body, and the intake manifold is mirror-polished to a high gloss. It has a billet throttle-body fuel-injection system that is fully polished, as well as fully-polished billet fuel rails and intake trumpets. The car has a gorgeous black leather interior, custom-fabricated dash painted to match the body, shaved door handles and shaved pop-up lights. Manual transmission. This one-off custom high-performance show car was awarded Best Paint by Mothers at the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction event. Sold on previously Bonded Title.
