1965 Chevrolet Impala Convertible Additional Info:

This 1965 Chevrolet Impala convertible is one of those cars where the more you look, the more there is to like. Great colors, a smooth 327, and a comfortable interior that is a great place for you and some friends to spend some quality time. It's just more proof that it's hard to go wrong with a mid-60s GM convertible. This isn't a trailer-queen show car, but the all-new 1965 Impala had show car looks when it... hit the streets. Clean, modern, and shedding all remnants of 1950s excess, the new design is an absolute slam-dunk. Code C Ermine White is this car's original color, and the paint was refinished a few years ago during the frame-off restoration, and while it's not perfect, it does have a familiar look that suits it just fine. There are a few signs of use and age here and there, but the quality of the work is visible everywhere you look on this lovely car. Gaps are tight, the panels line up fairly well, and details are sharp, all hallmarks of craftsmen who excel at their work. The big chrome grille and matching bumpers have been restored and it has a classic look that suits Chevy's top-of-the-line ragtop. It's a car that you'll never hesitate to jump in and just drive. One of the car's more appealing aspects is the handsome red interior, which is original spec according to the cowl tag. Perhaps even more unusual is the fact that it's a bench seat car, which emphasizes the "full-sized luxury" aspect even more. As well-restored as the rest of the car, the interior is eyeball-popping at first glance and delightful in the details. Correct materials and patterns were used on the seats, door panels, and carpets, and the factory gauges are clean and crisp ahead of the driver. It appears that there's newer weather-stripping, which seals up well and cuts down on squeaks and rattles, and the plush carpet is in great shape, particularly for a convertible. The power convertible top was originally red, so that's what they installed when it was time for replacement, and it stows under a boot that matches the interior. And as an Impala, you know the trunk is positively cavernous, with spatter-finish floors and what might be the original trunk mat. The 283 cubic inch V8 under the hood was hardly a slouch in the performance department, moving this big ragtop with plenty of power to spare. Believed to be original and restored to original specs approximately 4k miles ago, this car keeps its low profile only until you turn the key. With a stock carburetor and intake manifold up top, it's neatly finished in Chevy Orange with a few dress-up items, lending it a tidy almost factory look. Power steering and power front disc brakes work well with the 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission to give it that effortless big car feel, and it barks and snarls through twin factory-style chambered mufflers in such a way as to warm pretenders that this Imp isn't a pushover. The chassis is incredibly clean underneath, and it sits on a set of flashy Ridler chrome wheels and 215/50/17 front and 235/50/17 rear blackwall radials to finish the killer look. A handsome piece of Chevy muscle, this is one of those cars that everyone can agree is first-class fun that's still very affordable. Call today!
