1965 Chevrolet Impala Series news, pictures, specifications, and information

Series 63 Six Cyl Convertible
 
From 1958 to 1965 Chevrolet's Impala, named after a fast running antelope inhabiting much of southern Africa, was their most expensive full-size car. From 1965 the model range was positioned beneath the 'more luxury' Caprice. The Impala sold well over one million units in 1965 alone, and over thirteen million from 1958 to 1996, making it the world's biggest selling full-size car.

1965 was the first year of the B-body, atop a new unibody, wide perimeter frame, produced in six styles; 2-door coupe, hardtop and convertible and 4-door hardtop, sedan and station wagon. The engine range was wide with a 235 cubic-inch, 135 horsepower six through 427 cubic-inch 425 Turbo Jet v8.
The 1965 Chevrolet Impala was available as a 4-door sedan, 2- and 4-door hardtop, station wagon (with seating for either 6 or 9 passengers), and as a convertible. Prices ranged from $2,670 - $3,070. Options and various engines raised that figure even further. In total, around 56,600 examples of the six-cylinder models were built, and 746,800 units of the V8 Impalas. 72,760 were convertibles.

The Impala's had bright bodyside moldings, wheelhouse moldings, rear cover panel trim, and triple-unit tail lamps. There were also full wheel covers. Inside, the Impala's had an electric clock, vinyl and pattern cloth trim in the pillared sedan models, and a bright center panel molding in the instrument panels.

The six-cylinder engine was an overhead valve unit that displaced 230 cubic-inches and offered 140 horsepower. The V8 had a 283 cubic-inch displacement size and offered nearly 200 horsepower. Other V8s were available, with horsepower that reached 400 horsepower.

The Impala Super Sport model had full wheel covers, full interior carpeting, front bucket seats, all-vinyl trim, SS identification on the door panels, and a console with a built-in, Rally-type clock. Other features included a vacuum gauge, Super Sport front fender script with similar badging on the radiator grille.

The Super Sport models were available as a two-door hardtop or as a convertible. 3,600 examples were six-cylinders while 239,500 were outfitted with V8s.
