05/06/2018. First look at the almost completed 1965 Corvette C2R. My friend Bill Boudreau of ZR51 Performance came by with a cool set of portable race car scales. The 1965 with about 5 gallons of fuel and no driver weighs only 2819 lbs. A stock 327/4-speed ’65 coupe weighs about 3140. My 1971 LT-1 coupe weighs 3223, and the 2001 Z06 weighs 3132.
