1965 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe

1965 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe

In celebration of their 50th year of production, Chevrolet introduced the Impala. Designs were changing, moving away from traditional tail fins being replaced by deep sculpted rear panels, dual headlamps, larger “greenhouse” passenger compartments, and upgrades in suspension and engine options. Interior finishes such as color keyed door panels, and brushed aluminum began at this time as well. Through generations 1 to 3, styling got sleeker, passenger compartments lower, and emphasis was on a look of a car in motion, when it was sitting still.

Flashy muscle cars are fun, and polished customs are nice, but for some folks there's nothing better than a well-done cruiser. No gimmicks, no frills and no drama; just sun and fun -- LOTS of fun. This sexy and clean Impala is a classy stunner that mixes 283 cubic inches of power with a 3-speed manual, some new upgrading, and tasteful aesthetics. Oh, and did I mention it also can go in a straight line in a not too shabby style as well?

This classic design uses sculpted steel and chrome accenting to its advantage and creates an iconic year for the Impala. Dual headlights flanking a nice multiple rectangle opening grille, clean shining bumper below and we then see miles of Crocus Yellow covered steel panels. Tastefully breaking up the yellow are window surrounds, wheel well brite-work, and a rocker trim. These and the mirror and handles make up this sport coupe hardtop with overall good gaps but some slight rust bubbling apparent at the bottom of the doors as well as paint flaws in the hood and runs above the wheel arches. To the rear, where the 3 individual round tail light configuration per side has been embedded into the trunk lid and rear of the quarter panels and is framed on the bottom by the clean bumper. 14-inch standoff turbine style wheel covers are all around and are shod in 215/70R14 thin white stripe rubber.

A very clean original in appearance interior greets us with a swing of the doors, on whose panels are black vinyl with an intersecting linear pattern that has buttons at each line crossing, clean cranks and handles and a textured lower panel. The dual benches, split in the front stretch from door to door and side panel to side panel and are in great unrestored condition. Also, in black with smooth bolsters and tuck and roll vinyl inserts they have a nifty button pattern that mimics the buttoned intersections on the door panels. The original looking dash is there and holds not only the factory instruments, but a clock and the factory AM radio. Down low on the dash is a walnut applique strip that houses multiple chrome knobs, pulls and the slides for the heater which has a new heater core. This is fronted by an original dual spoke steering wheel with its chrome Impala logoed horn ring. Just a few scrapes are here but mostly clean. Heavily faded black carpet, now showing with faded hues of orange, floods the floors and is protected by black floor mats. A tight black perforated headliner hangs above and has working courtesy lamps.

Sitting in the cavernous engine bay is a correct and date based original 283ci V8 topped with a 2bbl carburetor and orange Chevrolet script valve coverings and a chrome air filter lid and oil filler cap for a bit of dress up. A 3-speed column shifted manual transmission is on the back of the mill and it throws power back to a 10-bolt rear weighing in with 3.08 gears. We note a new radiator core support has recently been installed.

An accumulation of surface rust, patina riddled paint, undercoating, and road dirt are seen on this undercarriage, however nothing remarkable as to structural integrity compromise or problematic and to keep things rigidly held together are new body mounts. Independent coil springs are the suspension for the front, and a 4 link with new coil springs and shocks are on the rear. Drum brakes are all around, and a stock style dual exhaust snakes across the undercarriage.

A turn of the key and we are running like a champ with a nice throaty exhaust sound. The transmission shifts smoothly, and one can feel the power as you pick up speed. Steering is tight, brakes are solid, and it was an overall enjoyable experience with a smooth ride. All is functioning well on this car with the exception of the horn not tooting.

A clean, unmodified very desirable 2-Door Sport Coupe with some Crocus Yellow paint, good brite-work and chrome, and some power to boot. Load up the family and get ready for your next weekend adventure.
