One-Owner 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS Left to Rot Outside – Still Somehow Complete
While the Impala nameplate was born in 1958 as the top-of-the-line Bel Air and everybody loved it from the very beginning, the car needed seven years to make a name for itself.
And this is because 1965 witnessed not only the debut of a completely restyled Impala, but also the setting of a notable record in the United States. The Impala became the first car in America to sell more than 1 million units in a single year, and the number pretty much speaks for itself.
And this is why the rough model that we have here is still worth our love.
It’s one of these legendary 1965 Impalas, and what’s more, it even wears the SS badges. And these make it even more special, even more so because the car is somehow still complete.
The vehicle is clearly rusty, most likely as it’s been sitting outside for a long time. Born with a Milano Maroon finish, the Impala obviously requires a full repaint. And that’s why we strongly recommend any interested buyer to inspect the body thoroughly before purchase.
On the other hand, we’re being told the original 396 (6.4-liter) V8 engine is still available, though not in the car, and the SS badges, the clock, the padded dash, all are still around.
