vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1964 L75 Corvette in beautiful condition with only 66,110 original miles. It looks greats, runs great, and is an nice driver that is ready to be enjoyed. This Corvette has very desirable features such as the L75 327ci engine, 4-Speed transmission, and sidepipes. The car is finished in the beautiful and highly sought-after color combination of Daytona Blue over Dark Blue Vinyl. This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured below. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and information below to get a true sense of this Corvette.

We purchased this Corvette along with a restored 1969 L79 Corvette convertible from a collector and hardcore Corvette enthusiast. He stated that he had driven the car over 700 miles in the past few months. He also said that he recently spent over $6,000 on the car for work including a complete rebuild of the transmission, all new wheels and tires, and brake work.

We feel as if our asking price for this Corvette is very reasonable and that the car is definitely priced to sell. It is difficult to find any "Mid Year" or C2 Corvette for anything under $40,000, let along an example like this car that is a nice driver with low original miles, matching numbers, 4-speed transmission, and a beautiful original color combination.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

 

numbers

 


Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the dates are also chronologically correct. This means that all of the parts were made and assembled in the correct order. For example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could be assembled. All of the parts I checked follow this rule and are dated correctly.

 
item number description*
VIN 40837S115045 The first digit, "4," indicates the model year, 1964. The third digit, "8," indicates the car came with a V8 engine. The "67" is the body style, 2-door convertible. The "S" is the plant where the car was produced, St. Louis. The last five digits are a sequence number so this is the 15,045th Corvette made for 1964.
Body Build Date C27 For an A. O. Smith body "C" corresponds to March, and the 27 is the twenty-seventh day of the month meaning this Corvette's build date is March 27, 1964.
Engine Code F040I "F" means the engine was build in the Flint, MI plant.  The "04" is the fourth month of year and the "0I" is the first day of the month meaning the engine was assembled April 1, 1964.
Suffix Code RD This means the motor was intended for a 327ci 300hp L75 Corvette with a manual transmission, which is correct for this car.
Engine Block Casting Number 3782870 The engine block has the correct 3782870 casting number.
Engine Block Casting Date B 8 4 "B" is February, "8" is the eighth day of the month, and "4" is the last digit of the calendar year so the engine block was cast on February 8, 1964.  Which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.
Transmission Main Case Casting Number 3851325 The main case of the transmission has the correct 3851325 casting number.
Transmission Date Code P0122 The "P" is the prefix that indicates this as a Muncie 4-Speed Transmission. The "01" is the first month of the year and the "22" is the twenty-second day of the month so this transmission was assembled on January 22, 1964.
Intake Manifold Casting Number 3844459 The intake manifold has the correct 3844459 casting number for a L75 Corvette.
Carburetor Number 3721SB There is a 3721SB number stamped on the tag that is attached to the carburetor. This would be the correct carburetor for a 1965 L75 Corvette with a manual transmission, but not correct for a 1964.
Carburetor Chevrolet Part Number 3851761 The carburetor has the correct Chevrolet part number stamped on the pad of the tag attached to the carburetor.
Carburetor Main Body Casting # 1552 The main body of the carburetor has the correct 1552 casting number.
Carburetor Air Horn Casting # 6 1518 The air horn has the correct 6 1518 casting number.
Distributor 1111024 The distributor is correct with a 1111024 stamping on the band.
Distributor Date Code 4B24 The "4" is the last digit of the calendar year, the "B" denotes February, and "24" is the twenty-fourth day of the month meaning the distributor was made on February 24, 1964.
Bell Housing Casting Number 3840383 The clutch housing has the correct 3840383 casting number for a small block Corvette.
Expansion Tank Number 3155416 The Harrison aluminum coolant expansion tank has the correct 3155416 number.
Expansion Tank Date Code 64C The "64" is the year and "C" is the third month of the year so the expansion tank was made in March of 1964.
Differential CB 2 16 64 "CB" is a code the that indicates the differential has a 3.36:1 gear ration and posi-traction. The "2" is the second month of the year, the "16" is the sixteenth day of the month, and 1964 is the year. This means this posi-traction rear end was made on February 16,1964.

condition

 
 

Exterior

The Daytona Blue exterior is in decent driver condition. The chrome and other bright work on the car shows well overall with no major cloudiness. Both doors open and shut easily. The brand new reproduction knock off wheels with brand new white wall tires look spectacular and really set this car apart from the rest. The wheels have absolutely no curb rash or wear and look brand new. The tires have nearly 100% tread left. As one can see in the photos the paint shows its age, but it has a nice patina and most importantly it is the original color.

This Corvette looks just in person as it does in the photos.


Interior

The Dark Blue interior of the Corvette is in outstanding condition. The seats look lovely with no holes, splits, or excessive wear. They are not worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is in great condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The chrome and other bright work inside the car has a nice finish and looks good overall. The dash and console are in great condition with no fading or sun damage. The gauge faces are nice and clean and the lenses are crisp and clear. The car still retains its original radio. It does not work, but most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. The door panels are in excellent condition, fit to the door well, the door pulls are solid, and there no cracks on the arm pads. The gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The odometer works properly, but the speedo needle gets stuck sometimes. Corvette interiors are not known the wear well and the excellent condition of this interior with so many years on it is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout it's life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car starts right away, runs well, and idles well. The car is an nice driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can see the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting thought all the gears, braking to stoplight, accelerating away, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts properly, there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. The transmission shifts well and does not pop out of gear. The clutch works well and lets off close to the floor. The previous owner said that the flywheels was resurfaced and the clutch was replaced when the transmission was rebuilt this year. The brakes are responsive and have many new components; they could stand to be adjusted since they do pull a bit under braking. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, and parking brake. Both headlights go up and down properly and with no binding the mechanism, which is a very common problem on this era Corvette. Their complete operation can be viewed in the video below. The blower for the heater works on all sspeeds. Also, the vent selector works properly and blows air from defroster and heater vents correctly. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.


Overall
Condition

Overall, this 1964 Corvette is in excellent driver condition. It has a great look with the new wheels and a very desirable and beautiful original color combination. Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and as one can see above this car is very original and correct. We have this Corvette priced to sell. Mid-year (C2) Corvettes are, and will continue to be, the most collectable and desirable Corvette generation. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. While this is not a Bloomington Gold or NCRS Top Flight restoration, it is a very nice driver. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
