1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe w/ factory 396
Glen Green with Black interior
Original survivor car from California
Original car - 70,180 miles
Originally purchased at Courtesy Chevrolet in San Jose California
One of the 618 Corvette 396 Coupes made.
Factory options include:
M20 4-speed transmission
Power disc brakes
AM/FM radio w/ power antenna
Teak steering wheel on telescopic steering column
Car also has American Racing special D-spoke wheels made specifically for Corvette w/ disc brakes.
Parts that have been replaced through the years that I know of:
Passenger side muffler
front head pipes
Radiator - was bought new from Chevy dealer in '87
The engine had a bad piston when I bought the car and was gone through. Engine has all of the original components
with the exception of the transistor ignition, which was gone when I bought the car.
I have owned this car over 26 years, and have put 80 miles on it in those years. It has been kept indoors, always.
The exterior of the car has good patina, showing rock chips in the expected places. The car has had some paint
work, most likely in the '70s, as it has aged consistently with the rest of the finish and is nearly impossible to
distinguish where the work has been done.
This coupe is in excellent condition with a consistent patina, showing even wear throughout the car. This is not a
restored car and has the look and feel that a true survivor should. This car has not been detailed and is presented
exactly as it has been stored for the past 25+ years. And yes, that peace sign in the rear window is from back in
This Corvette drives excellently, with a very tight feel with zero bumps/rattles. Clutch and transmission work
effortlessly as you run through the gears and the car stops very well with the factory power disc brakes.
If you are looking for a restored Corvette then this is not the car for you. If you want an honest survivor with a
consistent look and feel throughout, and a car that you aren't afraid to drive, across country if you are so
inclined, than you will find none better equipped.

What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.
That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
You can now put prices to your wildest option-sheet dreams of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. A microsite for the full-size pickup truck twins has been up since January, and now the full-blown configurator is live and ready to take your virtual orders. The only two chassis configurations available at the moment are the Crew Cab with either a short or standard bed - Regular and Double Cab versions will come later. In Silverado flavors that will run you $32,710 for the short box, $33,010 for the standard box, while the Sierra adds a $1,500 premium to both of those prices, and destination and handling for both models adds another $995.
Since these are American pickups the list of modifications is lengthy, but we added $11,450 in just two steps by starting with the Silverado Crew Cab and standard bed, then checking four-wheel drive and the LTZ Z71 package. Our final truck, resplendent in Brownstone Metallic paint, heated and cooled Cocoa/Dune perforated leather seating and tasty details like chrome recovery hooks, and engine block heater and LED cargo box lighting, rang up $57,285 at the candy store.
They'll be on dealer lots sometime this summer, so now's a good time to start practicing your box-checking.
