Other details: - car came with 5 x Western Wheel knock off rims, US made
- Bought the car with a black interior. During the restoration in 2009/10 we reinstalled the original 443B red-white interior setup.
- Dash cubboard door has 1966 logo and grill is from the 1966 model, since door seems to be original match we can asume that like Nolan Adams underlines that late '65 vettes can have parts from '66 model range.
- Original '65 discs were found on front side and '63 drums on the back. Frame was rebuild to 1965 specs during body-off restoration including disc brakes all around.
