For Sale at Auction: 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS custom hardtop is nicknamed "The Black Beast" after Houston's own UFC heavyweight contender, Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis. Just like Lewis, this real SS packs a knockout punch with a monstrous 502ci big block V8 engine residing under the hood. Factory rated at 600hp and 500 ft/lbs of torque, it's been equipped with a Crane hydraulic roller cam, Crane roller rocker arms, Edelbrock aluminum intake, Holley double-pumper carburetor, GM HEI ignition and ceramic-coated Hooker headers with a true dual 3-inch exhaust. The rear end is a GM 12-bolt with 3.73 gears and posi-traction. A new 4-row, the heavy-duty core radiator was also installed to ensure things stay cool. Speaking of staying cool, this Impala SS features air conditioning and blows ice cold. The engine bay has a menacing look with almost everything blacked out and red lettering, along with red LED lighting. The stance is provided by coilovers in the front and air shocks with lowering springs in the rear and helps tuck the 18- and 20-inch U.S. Wheel smoothies wrapped in custom Hankook redline tires from Diamond Back Classic Radials. Hiding behind the smoothies are front disc brakes with drums in the rear, both serviced in May 2022. Four new LED projector headlights update the look of the Impala SS while greatly increasing night visibility for the driver. The interior features factory SS bucket seats, factory gauges, factory console, new carpet and black with red SS floor mats. ** PREVIEW
