We cannot find a single imperfection on this frame off restored 1965 Chevrolet Impala. It is perfect. It starts up easily and drives down the road like a modern car. The best part about this gem is the paperwork. It comes with the original Protect-o-plate, engine rebuild receipts, owners manual, and California documentation. Top to bottom this car is like new. The clock even works!
The interior is pristine, take a moment to go through our gallery, you will be hard pressed to find another one in this condition. As stated earlier this was a frame off nut and bolt restored Impala, this includes the interior! All of the door cards are in excellent condition and show no blemishes, the windows and window felts are in excellent condition. The dash has zero imperfections, all interior lights and gauges work excellent. It is truly a pleasurable seating experience.
The paint is a 9.5 out of 10. It is concourse quality. You can raise it on a lift and the body lines are perfect. All of the chrome and brightwork shows excellent. All the exterior lights work as they should. The dual exhaust sounds great! Take a moment to watch our walk around and test drive video! It truly is a work of art. It is better than factory. This belongs in a museum. All of the glass is in excellent condition as well. Tires have nipples still on them, and the wheels have zero imperfections. IT NEEDS NOTHING.
The motor was rebuilt in 99 and we will include documentation, it runs, stops and drives like a new car! The frame has been powder coated in semi-gloss black, and all bushings, bolts, and hoses have been replaced. The power glide transmission shifts effortlessly. The 283ci motor runs great and does not have any sort of hesitation. Power steering makes it very easy to maneuver. IT NEEDS NOTHING! Take a look at our gallery and video and you will understand the attention to detail on this exquisite restoration.
