UNTOUCHED BEAUTY. This 1965 SS came out of Oklahoma. I have owned this car for over 20 years and maintained it as close to original as possible. My wife and I drive in town and to car shows. Judges have told me that this is one of the most authentic Impala SS they have seen. I have many of the original parts. I have changed to Cragars and Disc front brakes. The engine is 350 cu in. Other than these changes the car is original in every way. Starts every time and cruises down the road like a Rolls Royce. 4-speed manual, original radio and speakers. Everything works. I even think the seats and upholstery are original. The trunk area is clean with full spare and jack. Needs a good paint job and a new top- motor works. Currently in storage until April 1. Make plans now.
