This super C5 is ripe for the picking. In 2006 when the C6 come on the scene, many C5 Z06 owners quickly traded their car in for the C6, flooding the market with used examples and driving down their prices.

The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

1965 Corvette 4 speed convertible L75 327 cubic inch rebuilt 300hp engine,  Protect-o-Plate

Vehicle is burgundy - the camera in some pictures makes it look more red then the correct burgundy.  That is just the exposure of the camera.
# I can also go over this car in great detail with you on live video together so you can see all of this for yourself.  From the color of the green clean coolant to the level and color of the oil.  You can live listen to and see me fire it up for you, listen to the motor both when cold and hot.  We can even go for a drive in the car together live so you can see me brake with my hands off the steering wheel and listen and watch the car shift under acceleration through the gears.  As well as look at the engine temperature after and while we drive the car virtually together by looking at the dash temp gauge and looking at my laser temp gauge we can also use.  
Whatever we need to do.  This is the same things I do when people from all over the world hire my Sakowski Motors to do a vehicle inspection for them on the car they want. 

At Sakowski Motors we also can help you with worldwide shipping. I have detailed decoding of vehicle, pics of numbers and castings on engine, transmission, water pump, body tags etc       
-only a few thousand miles on rebuilt engine, see pics of how clean detailed engine bay, clean driver quality underside.

This car has amazing gaps on the doors, hood, headlight doors, and where the windows meet up to the top. 
The gaps and how the doors open and close are a highlight of  this car for sure compared to other corvettes that are priced higher. 
It just had a fresh oil change with ZDDPlus zinc additive and a coolant flush.
The owner also had us at the shop do our 532 point 4 hour 20 plus page inspection on the car so that it is ready and right for the next owner. I do this on every car that we advertise, that way I can tell you what you are buying in extreme detail.  And the high and low points of every vehicle I ever advertise or sell.   It should be near impossible for you to buy this car and not be happy with it in the long run when you get it. I will tell you more about this car then most people would know if they owned it for 20 years themselves. 

In my shop we put the correct style valve covers and correct oil pan on.  I have pictures of the super clean heads and rocker arms with the valve covers off, and inside the super clean incorrect oil pan we took off that has been on there since the rebuild that was a few thousand miles ago I am told.  The top of the heads, in the pan, and the inside of the engine look super clean and brand new.  If you told me it only has 200 miles on it, that is what it looks like on the inside.  Very very clean. 
The current owner also had us install new correct hoses, new correct belts, new correct spark plug wires, and more.  As well as rebuild the correct date code and numbered non ac car water pump for the car.  The tires are not brand new, but have good tread and are in good shape. 
 The doors all open and close nicely with good gaps, and a solid close. The door locks work on both sides. Windows roll up and down nicely and fit where the glass meets the hard and soft top weather stripping. .  Hard top and soft top latch nicely.  The soft top looks good.  The car is an older restoration that has been garage kept and cared for. I personally know the current owner who has had this car for the last about 40 years and I can tell you lots about it.  I have also personally driven this car quite a few miles, so I can give you good information on that also.  It is sitting in my shop right next to me this moment.  The paint is glossy and looks great.  Very few imperfections in the paint. There is one little spot where there are some stress cracks on the rear deck of the car, see picture where my finger is showing this.  I just walked around the car while typing this up, and only found 1 paint chip on the entire car. It is by the gas filler, but not very noticeable.  I didn't see it before. 
The car drives really well.  No incorrect clunks or bumps.  It rides very nice.  Under acceleration no misses or stumbles, but smooth clean power. The power steering make the car super easy to drive and park. The disc brakes are very smooth and plenty powerful.
On the dash the oil pressure gauge, engine temperature gauge, amp meter, speedometer, tachometer, and gas gauge all work. All lights work on dash: gauge lights and dimmer, high beam indicator, headlights on red word light, right and left turn signal lights, and the courtesy light under the dash when you open the door. 
The heater blower motor works, as does the selector to blow the air on the floor or dash for the defroster.  Air all blows to the selected location. The windshield wiper motor currently is not operational

I would classify this car as a nice driver.  It is not a just completed top flite corvette show winner that will win a national show.  But a ready to go solid driver well kept older restoration that has been recently freshened up that would be fun to drive to and enjoy.  And you can leave the hood open at local drive ins and shows for people to enjoy looking at the engine and engine compartment.
