For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

It's great to find a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle that's a real-deal Malibu SS. But that's just the beginning of the appeal on this hardtop. There have been solid investments to deliver awesome upgrades like the added power, an overdrive transmission, an A/C interior, and a terrific all-black style. It means you have a true Super Sport that will truly impress.

The black paint is a color with a timeless feel. It's a modern application, and so while the car is as dark as midnight, it also loves to radiate in the noon sunshine. But it's more than just the paint that has you excited. The chrome bumpers and trim give out good shine, and the doors open and close with a confident action. So this gives the right feeling of a thoughtfully restored classic. As a true SS, the coupe also has a sporty side with details like ribbed rockers, blackout rear panel, and SS grille. Plus, this one tastefully adds some extra allure from later Super Sports, like the raised hood with vent trim and Mag-style SS wheels. It reminds us that this early first-generation Chevelle is the foundation for Chevy's muscle car legacy.

The darkness continues inside, and so does the feeling of a solid investment. The carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dash all have a stock look but a much fresh feel. The bucket seats and a center console are what you expect from a Super Sport, but you can also see this one was upgraded for added comfort. That's why you have a custom console that has a nice armrest, 12-volt outlet, and is ready for you to add whatever modern stereo you like. You'll slip behind the wood trim steering wheel, and everything from the B&M ratchet shifter to the sun pro tach mounted on the steering column give you the right tingle of performance. This is the kind of car where you're going to want to roll down all the windows on the pillarless hardtop and go for a drive. And since you have cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, you can easily do it even on a summer day.

Under the hood is a period-correct 327 cubic-inch V8. It's the centerpiece for a clean and tidy look in the engine bay. But while this one respects its history, it also wants to live up to its full Super Sport heritage. So it has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer RPM high rise intake, HEI ignition, and powder coated long tube headers. You can also see they have spent time on the fundamentals with good wires, hoses, and belts, and the way it runs smoothly reaffirms that it's a well-serviced motor. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic, and the overdrive adds to this hardtop's anytime usability. You also get easy cruising features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and sway bars front & rear.

This is the Super Sport that looks as mean as midnight, but it has been given all the right investments to be one of the nicest total packages around. Call today!!!
