Lot #1262.1 - A very rare 1965 L76 Corvette coupe with factory air. 1 of only 227 produced. The numbers matching 365hp engine has been professionally restored to its original state and runs strong. With its original Holley carb, alternator, fuel pump, starter, heads, intake manifold, distributor, exhaust manifolds, etc., it's not hard to see how awesome this engine is. In addition, the M20 transmission was completely gone though and shifts very smooth. The car was originally bought in January 1965 by William Hansen in Lancaster, CA, and still retains its original Black Plates. Bill parked the car in 1983 with the thoughts of restoring her with his son. She stayed in his garage until Bob Gagliano bought her in 2003 and again she was garaged. I bought this no-hit, mostly original car from Bob in August 2006. A 19-month, body-off, professional, full restoration was completed. No expense was spared to ensure an accurate and correct date coded and part numbered car from the original shocks, 3.70 posi-traction differential, instrument gauges, clock, radio, wiper motor, horns, headlight motors and even original wiper blades. This is arguably one of the finest L76 coupes on the planet. In March 2008, the car was NCRS judged for the first time at the Southern CA meet and received a Top Flight Award. We wanted to ensure her place among the best so in July 2008 we took her to the National NCRS Convention where we again received a Top Flight Award. In the car is a complete listing of date codes and part numbers for review along with her Protect-O-Plate, Trim Tag and owner's manual. Bid with confidence on this rare and exceptional L76 Corvette coupe with air.
