Impala Caprice 396 Hardtop SOLD

  • Sale
  • $0

Recently arrived & easily complied to NZ specs. Now registered & licensed for 12 months.

Factory matching numbers 396 big block power with Turbo 400 auto trans, power steer, power brakes, electric windows. You cant buy a better optioned '65 4-door hardtop.

This car had sat a very long time & it's matching numbers 396 needed some love. We have just had the 396 rebuilt by NZ craftsmen. Machining by one of NZ's leading machine shops. Assembled by a renown engine builder. No shortcuts taken. Full spec sheet available. Not some cheap half pie job. Yes, its partial VIN stamping is still intact. Big dollar build. You are buying quality.

New dual exhaust & battery

Excellent body with all original sheetmetal, original paint with touch ups. Hand painted pin stripes.

Runs & drives awesome. So much nicer to drive than a baby 283 / Powerglide car. Lots of power & super smooth.

Original seat upholstery fabric inserts are blown out from age & want redo. New headliner & vinyl top. Our intention is to col our the vinyl top to black. Maybe that should be the new owners call? 

Customer feedback / testimonial:

A big thank you to Bryce for your fantastic service, both pre-purchase and follow up. We snagged a 65 Chevrolet Caprice, road tripped it home to the south island without a hitch. We had heard a bit about how good Bryce was to deal with, well it was all true. Read all the comments here and on trade me and see for yourself. Thanks mate, I will be talking to you again.
