Classic Car Overview

This is a very rare, numbers matching 409 engine, 4 speed, and 12 bolt posi in a 65 Impala Super Sport! To sweeten the pot a bit more it still retains its very desirable factory colors of Regal Red paint and white interior! All the production codes and dates line up perfectly. We sold the freshly restored car back in 2007 to the collector that has lovingly cared for it since then. He recently sold off his collection and kept this car as well as another Impala for last because they were the rarest he had. He repainted the car and maintained it as needed during his 17-year ownership. We were lucky enough to purchase the car back from him so it can be offered to its next caretaker and preserved for future generations to enjoy. This car was the end of an era! Only 2,828 409s were made, thats only .2%! Over 57,000 396s were made. The great w-block 409-340 horsepower was phased out and replaced with a smaller 396-325 hp engine in 1965. Only a few true muscle car guys ordered the legendary 409 at almost twice the price of the 396. Have you ever seen a 65 Impala SS with a 409? Pretty rare! Even car and driver paid a farewell tribute to the blazing 409 in December of 1964 with a final road test. EXTERIOR: The exterior of this car is said to be all original, never rusted sheet metal! The factory Regal Red is a repaint from the previous owner and has been neatly applied then sanded and polished to a smooth reflective finish. Looking down the side of the body it is absolutely straight as an arrow. All the panels are correctly aligned, and the gaps are very consistent throughout. The doors open and close like a new car. The front grill, bumpers, and all trim pieces appear to be refinished with a vibrant shine to them. All the Super Sport, and 409 emblems are in the original positions. It has the correct factory SS spinner wheel covers with 215/75R14 white wall tires that complement the interior very nicely. Oh yeah, gotta throw a compliment to the round taillights! Everyone loves them including me! INTERIOR: This rare factory white interior has many black accents and is extremely appealing alongside the red exterior. Up front has low back bucket seats that were reupholstered as well as the bench in back. The optional front seat belts are original. It still has the original center console with a working clock and correct chrome reverse lock out 4-speed shifter that all looks fantastic. It also has factory gauges and tachometer along with an Am-Fm radio in the dash. The door panels, headliner, sun visors, and rearview mirror were all replaced. The dash pad, dashboard, instrumentation, climate control, radio, and knobs all look original and in great condition. The steering column and steering wheel are likely original and in fantastic shape. The dome lights and kick panel lights are all working. Excellent carpet with reproduction floor mats. Absolutely nothing disappointing about this interior! ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood is a site for sore eyes! The original numbers matching 409 cubic inch engine with 340 hp is one of the last for this breed. It runs spot on and has been freshened up with new paint, hoses, and wires and maintained as needed. Up top is the correct chrome dual snorkel air cleaner. The bow tie valve covers have been chromed. It features power steering. The alternator, brake master cylinder, and steering gearbox all look fresh. The fender wells and underside of the hood have both been painted satin black. The firewall is painted body color and the original cowl tag is in place. What a rarity to have such an original and good looking engine compartment! TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The bottom side of the trunk lid and jamb are painted slick just like the body. A reproduction sticker, weatherstrip, and mat were replaced. The trunk pan metal is very solid and has been sprayed neatly with spatter finish paint. It has a new full-size reproduction 4 ply spare tire with jack assembly. Complete and proper, just the way we like them! UNDERSIDE: This is a nice looking undercarriage that has been maintained as needed since restoration. All the steering components look good and currently work well. The shocks and springs look like they were replaced front and back. The front has a sway bar and the links look fresh. The rear suspension is looking good also. There are factory drum brakes at all four corners and even the emergency brake is hooked up. It has a full dual exhaust system with fresh looking mufflers. The gas tank looks new as well as the hanging straps and hardware. It also looks like the fuel pump was replaced. Looking up at the numbers matching 409 it has been freshened up with factory color Chevy orange paint. Its correct canister style oil filter is also in place. The numbers matching Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission also looks fresh and clean. It transfers power to the factory correct and date coded 12 bolt rear end with 3.31 gears. The floors look solid and appear to be undercoated from the factory. They have been freshened up with black paint that was applied neatly and looks great. SERVICE: Our team of professional mechanics has completed a thorough inspection on this car and repaired or replaced the following items: repaired the speedometer and replaced the valve cover gaskets. This was the last chapter for the legendary 409 cubic inch V8. The 1965 Impala SS is part of the final run of these big blocks and this one celebrates that legacy correctly! What a significant classic with major collector appeal! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership. 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP Power steering 3.31 Posi rear Bucket seats Center console AM/FM radio Factory tachometer Factory gauges Factory clock Reproduction mats Seatbelts Spinner hubcaps
