Survivor Wagon: 1965 Chevrolet Impala

1965 Impala Wagon

The seller of this Impala station wagon claims that it has only had own owner and is all original. If the claims are true, then this is one heck of a find! The paint and interior look great in the photos, but I would want to inspect this one in person to make sure it’s not just an older restoration. The seller is a dealer, so you aren’t really buying it from the first owner. Unless of course, they have owned the car since new. The fact that it may have been in one person’s care for all those years does make it desirable though. As does the third row seat and 327 V8! The auction here on eBay ends soon and it looks like most people are believing the claims. Take a look and let us know what you think. Thanks goes to Charles H. for the tip!

    Station wagons are becoming more and more popular so it could easily sell for a fair amount.

    somebody wants it pretty bad, bid up to 13k with 4 hours to go.

    That is so bizzare, driving to work this morning I passed the identical car, same color , everything in NH.

    Any old hot rodders know if the double hump heads are original to a ’65 327 Impaler ?

    • JW454

      The 3782461 double hump head was used from 1964 through the1966 model year. It continued until June of 1966 and was replaced by the 3890462 which used the same casting identifier (double hump).
      The 3782461 head used 1.94 int. and 1.50 exh. Valves with 62.076 CC combustion chambers and were good up to 300 H.P. out of the box.

      I guess this makes me an old hot rodder.

    No way does the wear on the steering wheel match the lack of wear on the front seat. My guess is that the entire interior has been replaced or the original owner had those plastic covers installed and the current seller has just removed them. Still suspicious though. Also, recent head work perhaps?

    IMO with his claim of 99K mileage this car looks just way too perfect, I’m guessing older restoration.

    Looks like the mailman spotted it and made off with some cool cash…..

    I sure wish I would have seen this 65 before the auction ended. What a prize! I do believe this is the real deal. I remember steering wheels doing this stating at 40-60.000. Miles “back in the day”. I think G M wanted them to do that as a reminder to trade every 3 years before the car lost its “value”.. ( Never let it get 50.000 miles on it) Ha-Ha.

    if it was a bel air, 283, and a roof rack it would be the one i drove ” back in the day “. i see the the car has the cable and mount added to right side in case the motor mount breaks. someone got a very nice car.

    GM recalled several years-models to SECURE motor mounts as several broke holding the gas pedal wide open, CHEAP fix but it worked!

  12. The Chucker

    Torque Thrusts and redlines would look great on this!

    I get the station wagon craze – I have an E39 Touring. I originally was looking at the ’70s Ford Wagons but could not justify the prices – and this was several years ago. However, it’s hard for me to see any real value – except maybe for nostalgia – in these old wagons. Marginal performance (with smaller displacement blocks), marginal braking. Would never load my family into one of these old barges and take them to the beach via canyons, those living in LA know the Topanga route, as I do into the Bimmer.

    I like the vintage Detroit wagons, I really do but everything has its price. I could see this wagon maybe going into the high 7’s and that’s due to a 327 and the cool body style with the 3rd seat, but at its sales price it’s a bit hard to justify. That’s just my opnion…
