This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of a beautifully restored only as required (Paint, Leather etc) and seriously striking second generation Corvette, a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette 327/365HP Roadster, 1 of only 5,011 L76 units built with this engine in '65!
This is one highly desirable and collectible unabused example of one of the best styling efforts of the decade, a genuine grand touring car in every sense of the word, this shortest lived Corvette design (1963-67) is probably the most sought after apart from the 1953-1958 models and they are seemingly increasing in value and desirability each year and which is sure to prove a most worthy investment for any Corvette collector or classic American car enthusiast!
