This 1965 Chevrolet Impala has been under the same care for 20 years. In that time there have been upgrades that made it look quite distinct, and you'll also appreciate the added function, like the crate V8 and overdrive transmission.
This coupe has spent two decades with the same owner, and so as you look over this whole car, you see a little bit of extra care that comes with long-term ownership. The majority of the work on this was done about eight years ago where it gained the distinct green color and the cool white stripes painted on top. It's a cool look, especially with the purple tint on the windows. Of course with its age we understand if you want to make updates. After all, the '65 remains an in-demand car since it debuted. The longer/sleeker style where even the taillights reached out from the body. And this example gets the fundamentals right where fender lines remain crisp, doors close with confidence, body gaps are decent, and the brightwork is complete. And of course, you recognize some street machine attitude with large dual exhaust tips, dual aerial stands, and 18-inch Vision wheels.
A custom interior was also done around the same time as the paint. It carries a similar cool two-tone green and white on the seats, door panels, and headliner. There was also plenty of comfort added with a custom armrest center console, provisions for air conditioning (will need servicing), and an AM/FM/CD stereo with modern USB input and subwoofers. Just like the exterior, you may choose to improve on some areas, but what this always has is that undeniable attraction of a big full-size coupe that has room for everyone. And when you roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and go for a cruise, the way the breeze flows and the sound of the V8 is pure magic.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch crate motor that was around the same time as the interior and exterior work. It has the right pieces you want, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. It's a strong running powerhouse that makes this Impala a great cruiser. And just to make it even more attractive for driving near or far, the transmission was also upgraded to a four-speed automatic w/highway-friendly overdrive. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern sport tires complete a package that was made for those who really drive their classics.
The sale comes complete with the service manuals and build receipts. It's the distinct-looking Impala from a very distinct year. And so when a coupe like this was upgraded for fun, you know it's time to hit the road. Call now!
