Completed at GM’s St. Louis plant in November 1964, this Corvette Roadster was factory-equipped with a top-of-the-line, fuel-injected engine, coupled to a four-speed gearbox and 4.11:1 Positraction rear end. Delivered to Malcolm Konner Chevrolet in Paramus, New Jersey, finished in Rally Red with black upholstery and a white top, this Corvette was originally equipped with a hardtop, teak steering wheel, power brakes, AM/FM radio, and off-road exhaust.

The first known owner, Richard Goode of Lincroft, New Jersey, purchased the Corvette in 1971. It remained in his hands until 2001, when it was sold to the consignor, a respected Los Angeles-area collector. Between 2001 and 2003, Dennis Hakim of Ventura, California, performed a meticulous, body-off restoration in which originality was paramount. Once restored, the roadster earned Bloomington Gold Certification, three NCRS Top Flight awards, and the prestigious Duntov Mark of Excellence, the club’s highest award.

Beautifully presented, with just 1,000 miles since restoration, this exceptional Corvette is offered with the correct tools, jack, owner’s manual, and radio card, as well as receipts dating to 1971. The exhaustive file of documentation includes restoration photos, a list of important ID numbers, award certificates, and Al Grenning’s CCAS certificates for the trim tag and fuel injection plenum. With fewer than 200 Fuel-Injected 1965 Roadsters known to survive today, this magnificently restored example is among the very best of a rare breed.
