Lot #321-1965 Chevrolet Chevelle L79 Super Sport Convertible (VIN 138675B149207)- Beautiful restored Carolina Chevelle! Reportedly a South Carolina car and an original L79 350HP SS Convertible. As the legend has it, the correct original 350HP engine was discarded in the mid-70's as the block was cracked. That engine was replaced with a period-correct 327 block and all of the useable components from the original engine were used in the rebuild. Then the car sat for 22 years in storage. It was rescued by the seller in the late 90's and a 3-year frame-up restoration was completed in 2002. All of the body is GM original and rust-free except the bottoms of the rear fenders had some rust and only the bottoms were correctly replaced with reproductions. During the restoration, the car was color changed to Sierra Tan to duplicate the Chevelle he had as a younger man. Paint is beautiful especially considering it is 18 years old, but there is a little spot in the hood finish and that is shown in the pictures. As the 327-350HP engine was previously rebuilt, it was installed after the transmission and Posi Rear end were rebuilt. Vintage Air Conditioning was installed and vents through the factory vents on either side of the dash as well as under the dash.

138 SS Package with bucket seats
327-350 HP L79 V-8 engine
