For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS is an awesome Pro Touring custom build. It includes a sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, an overdrive transmission, and a comfy upgraded interior. And at its heart is an enhanced and fortified fuel-injected Corvette powerhouse.


The glossy cream is a great color on this classic. It isn't so bold that this loses any of its vintage vibe, but there's an extra brilliance here that signals this is an upgraded machine. And because this one has the cleaner lines of a true 138-code Super Sport, the good gloss really lets you see the great creases of the iconic sheet metal. Plus, the chrome bumpers have a nice shine, the glass is clean, and the headlights have a jewel-like clear style. We're even told this was a California car for its life before the restoration. It's an attractive coupe, but it never takes its vanity too seriously, and that's because this is a pro touring car that was made to be driven. You really get that vibe when you see the 20-inch Intro alloys with the extra meaty rear set of modern sport tires that gives this stance and substance.


When you open the doors, you're greeted with a custom black interior. Up front is a pair of Procar bucket seats. They have the classic low-back style, but the bolstering hugs your body like no 1960s machine ever did. The rear bench, carpeting, door panels, and headliner all coordinate in a dark and clean style. The exterior cream even returns on the door tops and dash for a tasteful contrast. It makes for a stylish hardtop that also knows how to focus on the driver. You get nice features like a center console, upgraded pedals, a polished sports steering wheel, an Ididit chrome tilt steering column, and a full set of Dakota Digital gauges with a menacing red glow.


The engine bay is ready for display with its tidy style and ultra-smooth inner walls. And on a pro touring car like this, the engine is the true heart of the build. That's why you get a special LT4 powerhouse. This fuel-injected 5.7-liter V8 is already famous for being a single-year offering that solidified the C4 Grand Sport, but that was just the beginning for this one. It's a full professional build that has been enhanced and fortified. The list includes an Eagle forged crank, Eagle H-beam connecting rods, ARP bolts, 12.25 compression, CNC ported heads & intake, a Lloyd Elliot custom grind cam, and a Holley 58mm throttle body. We have a long list of this comprehensive build, so call for all the details. Hooker ceramic-coated headers let this powerful motor exhale with the rumble it deserves. There are also right supporting components, too, like an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, billet hood hinges, and an Optima battery mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. The V8 is mated to a stout and smooth 4L60E four-speed transmission, and so the full package was built to give you both speedy performance and easy overdrive cruising. The full suspension was upgraded including CPP tubular front A-arms, a CPP triangulated four-link rear, and Hotchkis sway bars. This is added to power steering, modern performance tires, and the superior stopping power of Baer four-wheel power disc brakes for a solid driving total package.


We like that this is an awesomely powerful car with the right upgrades to let you enjoy it to the fullest. And it really is built for driving. So you may want some paint correction or add a stereo if you're looking for a full show car, but you also know those are the kind of custom classics that approach six figures. So if you're looking for a terrific driver or a great pro touring deal, you know this hardtop is it. Call today!!!
