Radio delete option car - unique
From the 23.564 corvettes produced in 1965 only 1.451 were delivered to dealers without RPO U69 (radio), which counts for 6.16% of the total number which can be classified as a unique thing.

VIN tag
The VIN tag shows the production sequence number but a clear 2nd stamping is visible at the top of the tag reading 12 4. This 2nd stamping is what Nolan Adams identified as the dealer delivery date, so we can asume that this car was received by the dealer in December 1964.

The knob on top of the stick is smaller compared to the later '65 models with powerglide. According to Nolan Adams retorer guide this small knob only appears on on the early '65 production models.
