One Of The Finest Cars Ever Built By Gm — I purchased my 1965 Impala SS convertible in 1975 when I was only 17 years old. I am the 2nd owner and have owned the car for the last 41 years and it remains totally stock. As I live in British Columbia, I have only driven it in the summer months. At 162,000 miles, the 283 V8 engine and 2 speed power glide are original and are running well and still in great shape.The flowing lines of the 65 are beautiful and these cars were designed to be comfortable crusing at 60 mph all day on the freeway. I will never sell this vehicle as it was my first car that I fell in love with, used at my highschool graduation, has been displayed in numerous car shows and parades, and driven all my adult life. This car turns heads everywhere it is driven. In short, one of the finest and durable vehicles designed and built by General Motors.

Pros: Great highway cruisers and both the engines and transmissions are rock solid.

Cons: Suspensions for cornering could be improved

:o) — The 65 Impala, being our first new car has always held a special spot in our memory and I later regretted letting it get away. We loved the new body style, it was easy to drive and seemed to "float" down the highway. Our son became an auto body guy and about 10 years ago found a '65 SS. He restored it, painting it the same color as our first Impala and gave it to us. Still a beautiful car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: We were stationed in Japan and ready to ship back to the states. Saw the '65 in a catalog and loved the new body style. Ordered it and picked it up in Portland, OR. Cost in 1965 was $1500. Great handling and really liked the color. This was our first new car. We would look at our reflection as we passed a store window and thought..."Boy! We sure look good in this car."

Cons: We chose the base Impala Sport Coupe. Had to add a/c later but it didn't work as well as factory air. It was a great car but should have added some upgrades. Live and learn.

See The Usa In Your Chevrolet! — This car was built by American craftsmen and cannot be duplicated today. It is fast, Fun to drive and attracts a crowd wherever you drive it. I'm the third owner and she's a 'survivor' with mostly all original paint, original interior and drive-train. It's got the 300 HP 327 cu. in. V8 and Powerglide transmission. Factory air, tilt, tint, and vinyl roof.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The '65 is a real head turner.  I bought it in Minneapolis/St. Paul and my brother Dan and I flew up and drove it back; what a great trip.  I'm the third owner and she's a 'survivor' with mostly all original paint, original interior and drive-train.  It's got the 300 HP 327 cu. in.

Completely Stock — Getting ready to lower 65 impala. All air ride tech. Probably 17"-18" wheels. May do an LS swap. Although Imps are awesome they lack in the power and handling so Im going to fix that. Good looks, nice ride, and a 14 second 1/4 will be perfect.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: Heavy, Body roll

Pros: smooth

Cons: no air cond

Missing My 'pala — My first car.A white 65 Impala 4Dr. hardtop. Mint blue interior.I was 17 and so was she (the car)! Loved every mile I drove in it. I was her second owner.Handled like a big car...loved it. MPG pretty great as it was manual with 283cu in.Purred softly and never failed me.Soooo roomy and turned heads even though she was a sedan.Another time period inside her.Cheap to own and insure.I put 35K miles on her in 2.5 years.I had to sell her as I joined the USAF. Will always miss her!

Pros: Everything about the car was fantastic

Cons: none at all.

1965 Impala Super Sport — They dont make them like they used to. This car is invincible. Its made out of something called "metal." This car is so simple and fun to work on. I just love the 60s styling. This car makes you feel like you are in a different time. The Impala is Huge! It is as long as my 79 long box chevy pickup. Inside I can sit in the back seat and spread my feat out. The trunk is massive. I love this car. Its handling wasnt really that great, and the performance wasnt to shabby considering how heavy it was. I had a 350 with a 4 barrel and headers. Would buy another one. Wish I hadnt sold it.

Pros: Styling, Room, Ease to work on, Old School

Cons: Handling

My Old Ss. — Super Sport, 2dr hardtop. It was ten years old, but still a solid performer. It had a 327ci-300hp engine and a factory four speed transmission. Very quick for such a large car. White with white interior. When I got married, I sold it to my brother, who eventually traded it to a friend, who promptly totalled it out. A real shame. It was a nice car.

Pros: Fast, Pretty, Lots of fun to drive.

Cons: Didn't corner very well. Had typical "big car" roll in a tight curve.
