1965 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible Additional Info:

We could tell you about the full size classic luxury that this 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS offers, but you're already mesmerized by the modern color and chrome. We don't even have to mention the custom interior A/C interior, overdrive transmission, or big block V8 under the hood before you're ready to give us a call on this Chevy.

Let's start with the most obvious part of this car, the color. The Dark Red Metallic was part of a restoration/transformation that happened later in life. When someone pays for quality, the value lasts. That's why you can tell this still has a terrific luster just by the pictures. And a glossy paint is exactly what you want on a car like this. It really highlights the Impala's curves that were bought in for 1965, and you can tell they made a solid investment to keeping this sheetmetal look great. Plus, you know the value of a sunshine-friendly droptop that radiates in the sunlight. But more than just paint, this convertible gets its total presentation right. You can tell there was all the right investment made in the chrome, and it carries all the correct Super Sport badging on this real-deal Impala SS. Plus, the upgrades are great, like the dual antennas and polished wheels with bullet center caps. And the full-length tan pinstriping coordinates with the tan convertible top to give a timeless color combo against the red.

If you like the way the roof looks against the paint, then you're going to love taking it down to reveal the full tan custom interior. This is a real-deal Super Sport with proper bucket seats up front and a center console in-between. But the classic details end there. There has been a big investment here for a fully coordinated custom look. When the power top is down, the interior and convertible boot match the exterior pinstripe. Plus, the custom painted center console, red stitching on the upholstery, red carpeting, and custom red dash really give this a thoughtful coordination inside and out. Even the trunk is done to match! More than just look great, this was built to enjoy the drive. That's why you have a wood-rimmed banjo-style steering wheel on a tilt column. And beyond that is a cool set of custom round gauges. The Impala is a full-size machine with room for family and friends, and the cold-blowing R134a air conditioning is there to keep everyone comfortable even when the top is down.

The engine bay is ready to show off with nice details like the smooth inner fenders and red flames etched into the valve covers. But it's the power that will really impress. When you have a big cruising classic, you love to have proper big block. This 396 cubic-inch V8 has been upgraded with all the right features - from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor to a large aluminum radiator. The V8 fires up nicely and makes a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. Power steering and power brakes w/discs up front keep the driving experience easy. And the four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive makes this convertible great for near or far.

This is bold big block cruising at its finest, so don't miss this deal. Call today!
