1965 Chevrolet Impala SS with a Single Owner: A Perfect-10 Delight, Complete with the Full Package

1965 was one of the biggest years in Impala’s history. It witnessed a major sales record, as Impala became the first car in the US to sell more than 1 million units in just 12 months.

Impala SS continued to be the model spearheading sales (not in terms of numbers but as far as performance was concerned), especially thanks to a series of upgrades that Chevrolet refined with every new release.

A 1965 Impala SS that recently made its way to the web provides us with an impeccable look at this notable model year, and based on the information shared by seller damitc-2660, inspecting the car is like a trip to a car museum.

The shared photos speak for themselves and confirm the car looks mesmerizing, with everything in perfect shape. The paint is flawless, the interior is spotless, and the engine under the hood works like a new unit.

I know what you think. This is probably a restored Impala, and while all signs point in this direction, the seller claims the perfect-10 condition results from the car always sleeping in a garage. The same family has owned the car since it was new, and whoever buys the Impala SS gets the full documentation since it rolled off the assembly lines.

It features all-original sheet metal, with the car sporting 66,000 miles (106,000 km) on the clock. The seller says the mileage is original, too, so the Impala is a time capsule that survived the test of time in flawless condition.

Now let’s talk a bit about what happens under the hood.

This 1965 Impala SS rolled off the assembly lines with a 327 (5.3-liter) rated 300 horsepower. The 327 debuted on the 1963 Impala in two versions, with 250 and 300 horsepower. The latter eventually became a popular choice in the Impala lineup, offering a good mix of performance and economy. The smaller engines, including the 283 (4.7-liter), produced less power, so the small block allowed Impala buyers to get a more thrilling experience without burning too much fuel.

One of the best things about this 1965 Impala SS is that it sells at no reserve. This means the highest bidder will take the car home, so I expect the battle to become super-fierce in the last few hours of the auction.

The top offer at the time of writing is $22,100, with 34 bids received. However, the auction will end in approximately two days, so the highest bid will likely increase significantly. Potential buyers who want to see the car in person must travel to Sparks, Nevada, and considering the car’s condition, they can take it home on its wheels. The title is already prepared for the next owner.
