WOW, WHERE DO WE BEGIN WITH THIS RARE BEAUTY?

THERE WERE ONLY 1,191 BLACK CORVETTES PRODUCED IN 1965. THAT NUMBER SPLIT BETWEEN COUPES AND CONVERTIBLES! HOW MANY ORDERED WITH RED LEATHER?
WHO KNOWS BUT WAY FEWER. HOW MANY SURVIVING??

WAS PURCHASED OUT OF THE VERY PRESTIGEOUS "LINGENFELTER COLLECTION" A FEW YEARS AGO.

WAS THEN USED AS A 'DREAM MACHINE GIVE AWAY CAR" FOR CHARITY! PRIOR TO CURRENT OWNER.

WAS THE SUBJECT OF A FULL ARTICLE IN "SUPER CHEVY" MAGAZINE TOO. THEY LOVED IT!

REAL L-78 MATCHING NUMBERS 396 / 425 HP, 4 SPEED, POSI TRAC, 1965 CORVETTE STING RAY. A TOP NCRS JUDGE JUST LOOKED AT THE PHOTO OF THE MATCHING NUMBERS AND GIVES IT A THUMBS UP TO ORIGINAL!

THIS WAS A 1 YEAR ONLY OFFERING. 

THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST YEAR YOU COULD BUY A BIG BLOCK STING RAY.  THE 1965 396 / 425 WAS ALL NEW REPLACING THE EARLIER CHEVY BIG BLOCK 409 ENGINES. IT IS KNOWN AS A MARK IV BIG BLOCK. THIS FACTORY HIGH PERORMANCE VERSION IS CALLED A L-78!

HIGH COMPRESSION, SQUARE PORT HEADS, BIG CAM, SOLID LIFTERS, HOLLEY CARB, HEAVY DUTY INTERNALS. YES!!

THESE ARE MUCH RARER THAN THE LATER YEAR 427'S. SAME ENGINES BUT BORED OUT. BOTH ARE AWESOME.

REAL BLACK WITH RED LEATHER ROADSTER.  IS YOUR COLLECTION MISSING THIS BEAUTIFUL BEAST?

OH, IN ADDITION IT COMES WITH THE RED LINES, THE GOLD LINES TOO AT THE OFFERED PRICE.
