This car has a very early build date, September, 1965. It is a numbers matching car with the exception of the intake manifold and carburetor which have both been replaced with a correct manifold and a new original carburetor. It is the original big block 427/390 horsepower motor. The 390 is rare since many were blown up while racing. The wheels are correct replacements; not originals. The side pipes are not original but were added shortly after the car was purchased with original Chevy side pipes. Both the power steering and power brakes have been added using correct original parts. As things needed repair or replacement I replaced them with correct parts from Long Island Corvette, Paragon Corvette Reproductions or certified restorers.
The original color was Nassau Blue. It was repainted Tuxedo Black after removing every piece of chrome, trim, door handles and every emblem.
The interior has been replaced with all original parts. It now looks new again and at the last NCRS judging only 8 points were deducted.
In 2013 the motor was rebuilt. New original parts include crankshaft, cam, pistons, rings, oil pump and a rebuild kit. The water pump was rebuilt along with the alternator, fuel pump, distributor and starter motor. The heads went to a machine shop for new rockers, springs, push rods, valves and guides set up for unleaded gas. Replace the radiator with a new DeWitt aluminum exact duplicate of the original.
The suspension has been completely overhauled, again, new and correct parts. Recently I had it judged at our local NCRS chapter. The Operations Check score was perfect, no points deducted.
This is a completely restored car. It's not a body off restoration because it was done over several years and second because I didn't want someone else building my car. Everything on this car works and works well.
Oh, you'll notice in the photos that the steering wheel is not original. I use a smaller steering wheel because it's easier for me to operate the clutch. I have the original along with other parts like the jack, owners manual, tags and a current NCRS judging guide book.
