Here’s your opportunity to buy a 1965 Corvette with some pretty rare boxes checked on the order sheet way back when.
But be prepared to pay up. The seller on Craigslist is asking a whopping $135,000 for this coupe that he claims has covered just 9,409 miles over the past 53 or so years. Of course, the photo showing the odometer could really be 109,409 miles or even 209,409 miles, but based on the excellent condition of the car, that seems unlikely.
Not only does the car have low mileage, though, but the seller also believes it could be the only 1965 Corvette with the order sheet combination of a documented radio delete, air conditioning, automatic transmission and 327/300 engine.
That is kind of an odd combo, isn’t it? Maybe the original owner just didn’t like music and preferred to listen instead to the sounds of his Corvette.
The seller claims that the car has won some pretty prestigious awards over the past 28 years – including NCRS Regional Award 1990 and 2004, National Top Flight Award 2005, NCRS Performance Verification Award 2005, NCRS Duntov Award 2005, Bloomington Survivor Award 2004, Bloomington Gold Certification 2004, Gold Spinner Concours winner 2004, and Corvette Vettefest Triple Crown winner 2004. We wonder where it’s been for the past 13 years, though.
The car’s history is fully documented, however, according to the seller, including past owners, original sales invoice, Protect-o-Plate, window sticker, and books and manuals.
If this car is legitimate – and it should be very easy for a potential buyer to confirm all the awards, then it might be one of the lowest mileage C2 Corvettes out there. What a shame that it never really got to live up to its full potential on the road. What do you think?
