EXCLUSIVE: 1965 Chevrolet Impala 283 4-Door

Update – Dana hasn’t found a new home for this Impala, so they’ve decided to lower the asking price to $4,250! If you’d love to give it a good home, be sure to contact Dana via the form below.

Reader Dana C has decided it’s time to part ways with their Impala. They’ve owned it for a number of years but stopped driving it about 10 years ago. It’s been parked ever since, so it’s going to need work. If this looks like the kind of project you’d like to take on, be sure to message them via the form below! And be sure to take a closer look at all the photos in the gallery at the bottom of the ad.

What Makes It Special? This is a well-preserved four-door 283 V8 car with Powerglide transmission, there are a ton of spare parts including a 283 engine and transmission, hoods, doors, trunk lids, seats, trim, radiators, etc. I stripped down two, a 1965 and 1966, Impala 4-doors for spare parts. I saved just about everything except; driveshafts, rear ends, and front and rear window glass. I have bumpers, dashboards, and some exceptional pieces of trim including a flawless front grill, which comes with the car.

Body Condition: The only visible rust through is on rear doors, there is surface rust on the roof. The original rust retardant coatings are just beginning to peel off. The interior is in reasonable condition but will probably need to have the seats and carpets redone.

Mechanical Condition: I stopped driving it about ten years ago (too many college kids with antilock brakes scaring me). I believe that it would start up with a tune-up and new gasoline. All components were working when I stopped driving it.

    Wow, my grandfather had this exact car. I remember, as a kid, my grandparents would take us to Big Boy in their new ’65 Chevy, it was quite a treat. Thanks to BF’s for helping me remember them.

    You always hear that Ford sold a million Mustangs in about 18 months but Chevrolet sold one million ‘65 Impalas
    in one calendar year…
    a sales record that will never be broken.

    $6,500 for all that? Wow Dana, now that’s
    what I call a bargain! Yes, you can wake
    this old girl up really easy and with very
    little effort on your part. My late FIL did
    that to a ’67 Biscayne 4-door sedan before he passed away in 2003. Here’s
    another candidate for pulling Dakota’s
    1948 Tourette travel trailer! @bowtie boy:
    Their car was a ’66 4-door HT. See the
    USA in your Chevrolet!

    Sounds and looks like a great deal of parts. A complete car to cut up. Think of the number station wagons you could rebuild! Now that’s where the money is now.

    “What makes it special?”

    it must not have been very “special” to Dana C since he parked it, apparently outside, ten years ago. And I am willing to bet it will need more than a tune-up and new gas to get it moving. Overpriced for what and how it is.

    Needs another price drop…ain’t moving at the current ask.

  7. ruxvette

    “Needs another price drop…”
    No, it needs a zero drop…$425.

  8. Timmy

  9. Del

  10. Tort Member
