1965 Chevy Impala SS L78 Restored to Perfection

1965 chevy impala l78 restored

Being one of a little over 1200 Chevy Impala SS cars produced in 1965 with the L78 396 Big Block V8 engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, today this is a very rare vehicle. Restored to showroom quality condition at the Pedal to the Metal shop based in the Netherlands this particular example is a real gem.

original 1965 chevy impala ss 396 4-speed

Never abused at the drag strip this original L78 optioned Red 1965 Chevy Impala SS turns heads with its stunning look. The Red vinyl bucket seat interior feels like a time capsule and the 396 Big Block factory rated at 425 horsepower controlled by the heavy duty Muncie 4-speed is a lot of fun.
