Seven years after its debut as a Chevrolet Bel Air version, the Impala ended up becoming the first car in the U.S. to sell more than 1 million units in just a single year. Every single model played a key role in this historic achievement, with the SS becoming an icon in terms of performance.

This 1965 Impala SS provides us with a closer look at what the Super Sport treatment was all about, though as anyone can guess after checking out the photos in the gallery, it has already lost its all-original magic.

As part of a restoration that has already been completed a few years ago, the Impala ended up getting several modern goodies, including a new paint that still looks beautiful. The only thing that needs to be fixed is one chip on the upper rear quarter.

Powered by a small-block obviously running properly, this Impala still retains some of the original parts that were fitted on the 1965 Impala SS, including the air condition system. However, eBay seller cpent1 says the AC needs a charge anyway.

With just 5,000 miles on the clock (that’s about 8,000 km for our European readers), since the restoration process was completed, obviously, this Impala feels just like a new car, and in many ways, its place isn’t necessarily on the street but in someone’s collection.

The seller says the Impala is still with its first owner, and there’s a lot of documentation available to prove this.

As for the price, you don’t expect this SS to come cheap, do you? Anyone willing to pay close to $38,000 can take it home, and for in-person inspections, you can find the car parked in Brooklyn, New York.
