Barn Full Of Chevys: 1965 Impala SS Convertible

chevy-barn

This looks like one barn many of us would enjoy visiting! Sadly, the only car that has been listed as of right now is a ’65 Impala SS Convertible. As a matter of fact, I don’t even see it in this picture. I wouldn’t be surprised if the seller posted this photo simply to lure people into their ad. I guess it worked, because it caught my attention! The Impala looks like a decent find though and could be worth taking a closer look at. You can seem more photos of it here on eBay with a current bid of $6,100. It’s located in Knoxville, Tennessee, but the seller claims it is solid and fairly rust free.

So here is the car that is up for grabs. As you can see, it isn’t in amazing shape, but it doesn’t appear to be a total wreck. It looks complete, but I see some rust issues. I’m not a huge fan of the custom wheels and is it just me or has it been lowered? I’d be returning both to original, thankfully it looks like the original wheels come with it!

Being an SS convertible makes this a somewhat desirable Impala. It isn’t a 396 car, but the 327 is a great engine and should provide decent performance. Restoring it could turn out to be a big task, but it sure would be a sweet summer cruiser. Just imagine putting the top down (which the seller claims still works) and hitting the open road in it!

If you just aren’t feeling this Impala, someone asked the seller if the other cars were for sale and they listed a price for the Bel Air. Hopefully that means they would be willing to part with some of the other Chevys in this barn!

    Lots of nice stuff. Would be nice to see more of what he has.

    I had one of these when I was young, same setup as this with a 327 and a power glide. Mine was candy apple red with a red interior and a black top. I really liked the 3 tail light setup that was a 1965 model year only feature.
    It is one car that I really regret selling but I was young and into sports cars and not big American cruisers.
    I would like to have another but with decent ones going for the mid 30’s this one is not worth fixing

      What about the ’64 Impala & SS? They had the 3 tail light set-up. But I did like the ’65 MUCH better.

    WOW!!, here is an opportunity to buy this project, spend $35,000 in restoration costs and end up with a nice $25,000 Impala. I think I’d rather find one in better shape.

    THIS is 2 different 65s
    here the one outside has the tires leaning on the fenders the inside is different color and custom wheels
    and the top rear quarter panel is dented differently that the one outside
