Lot #141 - 327 Cubic inch/375 horsepower fuel injected. 0 Miles on complete frame off restoration, car previously in storage over 20 years. One of only 771 produced. This fine example of the 1965 corvette coupe is the "true american sports car." purchased new in 1965. This vehicle was involved in an estate from 1972-1982, and off the road. In 1982 it was purchased with the intention of restoring it. But as all good intentions go it again was garaged kept for another 16 years. The owner did not title this vehicle until 1988. Finally in 1998 the owner started the frame off restoration. Again, it was not completed and put back on the shelf and in the garage. Also at this time the owner realized the title was lost as was the original paperwork. A duplicate title was issued in 2000. We purchased this vehicle and finally completed the beautiful frame off restoration in 2003 after much labor and love.
