1965 Chevrolet Impala Coupe
1965 Chevrolet Impala 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 exceptionally clean Impala is a classy stunner that mixes a factory 250 cubic inches of power with a 3-speed drivetrain, some new upgrading, and tasteful aesthetics.
Butternut Yellow covers the metal surfaces and presents in good condition. Chrome is nicely preserved, and all original badging, and brite work are on the car. Glass is in showroom condition, and newly installed door and window rubber are noted. American Racing Mags are on all 4 corners and are covered with new rubber. Lines are all straight, gaps are good, and from bow(tie) to stern this Impala is truly original.
Upon swinging the door open your eyes are met with an immaculate interior, with black vinyl benches in front and rear. Doors have matching pattern and are in the same pristine condition. Dash and steering wheel are all Impala original and working perfectly. An aftermarket triple gauge cluster hangs below the dash, and above a sea of very nice black carpeting. A perfect dark gray headliner, as well as factory air that blows cold, it doesn't get any better than this.
The factory 250ci inline 6 is fed by Clifford Twin Weber 38 Full delivery..express delivery, as a slow steady press on the accelerator and this car goes and goes. Going through the gears via the shifter on the tree, the driver gets just smooth power up to the point where you can cruise effortlessly. New headers, and exhaust system allow the mill to clear its spent gasses quickly. All this in a very clean and organized engine bay, which could be also from the dealer showroom.
As expected from the topside condition, we could make use of the term clean as a whistle! No leaks seen which is highly unusual on a car of this age. Drum brakes all around can bring you safely to a halt. Floor pans, and body mounts are excellent and original.
Overall good condition Butternut Yellow with excellent interior, three on the tree, and a well-fed mill, this car could be your daily driver, it exudes that much confidence. This cruiser will take you back to an era when Am radio was king, and the Sunday drive was almost a religious ritual.
