1965 Impala 509
1965 Impala 2 dr Hardtop. Same owner for the last 18 years and always an Arizona car. The completely rust free body was painted PPG "Hot Rod Blue" approximately 12years ago. It was a very professional job done right here in town by reputable painter and bodyman, Don Cline at "The Shop." Nice and straight, fully sanded and buffed, and still shines like new, however it has a few dings, rock chip touch ups, and scratches here and there from 12 careful years of use. Nothing major, I tried to capture a scratch touch up in a picture but it did not show up. There is some pebble rash from the slicks on the lower fender lip and quarters. This car has had no major bodywork ever and has never had any rust whatsoever. Every piece of sheetmetal on this car is original. All of the chrome and stainless on this car is original and pit free, however I would call it driver quality as it is not perfect like new. All of the glass is original and in good shape, with the exception of the windshield which has one crack. Interior is about 10 years old but still in great shape. Front buckets are German "Scheel Mann", leather and cloth. 8 point chromalloy roll cage was expertly installed and tig welded by Steve Cole, a local expert fabricator.
