Description for Chevrolet Impala 1965

Please remember that your bid is a contract to buy the car, not to come and see it and change your mind. Please try to see the car in person if possible.

Nice driver quality Impala with 82,000 miles. New York inspection good until 9/30/18. Six-cylinder, Powerglide, power steering and correct working 1965 Chevrolet AM/FM radio. The car was ordered with the optional all vinyl black interior. Assembled at Tarrytown during the third week of July, 1965. Sold new at Baldwin Chevrolet, Baldwin, Long Island in September 1965. I have the original bill of sale, the Fisher Body punch card and two recall notices from the dealer dated 1966. I also have the original owner's manual and owner protection plan booklet with the protecto-plate. The paperwork I have shows that the original owner lived in Long Island and moved to New Hampshire with the car in 1974. It changed hands twice in New Hampshire before I bought it there in 2014 and returned it to Long Island. A previous owner had a valve and ring job done in 2008, Since I bought the car I've had the following done:

Rebuilt Carburetor

Brakes redone - including new lines and master cylinder

New Ciadella seat covers and seat foam installed

New Ciadella carpet installed

New fuel tank and sender installed

New radio speaker installed

Rear axle fluid and gasket changed

Transmission pan gasket and filter replaced

Grease fittings replaced

Upper control arm bushings replaced

Water pump replaced

Belts and Hoses replaced

Stabilizer links and strut rod bushings replaced

Trunk weather strip replaced

Heater switch replaced

New tires (they're now four years old with only a few hundred miles on them)

New exhaust system, including manifold

The car was repainted in single stage urethane - new emblems and door handles were installed. The paint job was a color change - from Ermine White to Crocus Yellow.

Why am I selling it after all that? For me half the fun of the hobby is buying and selling the cars. Another car wants to follow me home, but I have to make room for it.

The car drives very nicely. It accelerates and shifts well. I've been pleased with the acceleration for a six-cylinder full-size car.

The car could still use: the padded dash has started lifting at the corners. The headliner needs a repair on the passenger side sale panel. The center trunk floor has some rust. The rear doors don't always want to open.

Car sold as is, where is with no warranty.
