This 1965 Chevrolet Impala convertible is a real-deal Super Sport. And there is an appealing overall style where it loves to stay quite vintage - right down to the correct V8 - while also making good investments along the way to make sure it's a classic you'll love to cruise.
Red paint is always the right choice on a sun-friendly convertible. This is an upgrade later in life, and today it's the right mix of a good gloss without losing that driver-ready feeling. After all, this is a .....
drop-top Impala - the car that practically defines what a 1960s cool cruiser should be. This is the first year of one of the most legendary generations ever: the form-hugging chrome bumpers, crisp fender tops, and Coke bottle curves made for an ionic style. And the 1965 car's exclusive tail light package is sought-after because the hallmark three-light setup is boldly outstretched from the rear. They even added dual aerials for a true classic cruiser style.
The black convertible top has a clean look that's stylish against the red paint. So it's especially nice to power it down and reveal the full black interior. The foundation for a great cruiser always needs to feel good inside. After all, you'll want to cruise all day on a sunny Sunday. So we're happy to see a solid investment in newer upholstery. It has the right 1960s stitching, but it has an unmistakable, fresher, inviting feel. This cruiser style includes dark carpeting, a clean dash, and clear gauges. There are nice details everywhere, from the SS badging to the color-matched convertible boot. This level of thoughtfulness makes this feel like a thoughtful vintage cruiser. Plus, the full-sized Impala has plenty of room to take family and friends for a ride, but a true Super Sport like this has front bucket seats and a center console so that you'll be the priority no matter who else is coming along.
The engine bay continues this attractive full vintage appearance. After all, we love the look of the bold orange block, and matching valve covers radiating from within the dark engine bay. Even the correct washer refill bottle is attached to the inner fender. This stock style is also no coincidence. This 327 cubic-inch small block has the right corresponding date codes to believe this is the original powerhouse. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 is a strong runner. And it's easy to enjoy this Chevy thanks to power steering, an automatic transmission, and modern touring tires.
The impression you'll get from this Impala is that it's very vintage and effortless to enjoy out on the streets. So if you're looking for a driver-ready iconic cruiser, you need this Impala in your garage. Call now!
