Beautiful - in contrast to some opinions I very much like green cars.

Was not a huge fan of green originally but it definitely grew on me.
It's not the typical color for a muscle car or corvette, it's almost too "sophisticated". I love it though: so classic and it's got that vintage look ala James Bond/Aston Martin.
Not everybody likes it though...

I remember my first night with my 66 coupe a few years ago. Drank a lot of beer, listen to some oldies and stared at her until 3 am. Well done and welcome to the midyear club, she is a beauty

Nice car. Good luck with it. Love the color combo especially with th gold lines.

A 65/66 coupe is next on my hit list......... We'll see what carlisle brings this year.

People forget that Glen Green was the second most popular color in 65!

Congratulations on a beautiful acquisition.

That is my personal first choice color combination for my (someday) C2 coupe.

Sounds like a good plan! Will do that on my 2nd night of ownership! ;-)

Good on you, seems like an awesome car. If it was available when I was looking a couple of years ago, I think we would have been racing each other down the 101 to get it (although by the looks at the other cars in your garage I would have lost !).

I love the green, and everything else about the car sounded spot on !

Well done, the bay area needs more mid years driving around in my opinion to offset all the Tesla, Leaf and Prius My coupe always looked right out of place in the car park at work !
