Re: '65 wagon

Re: '65 wagon

I don't remember dual quads being available on the 1965 409's, just a single four barrel. That was the last year for 409's.
Would be a very cool street machine, to own. If it's nice, that's a very reasonable price, IMO.

Re: '65 wagon

That would be a good looking car with a stock hood on it. I like the jumbo vacuum gauge.

The ad says "factory 4-speed", but nothing about "factory" 409 car...

Seems odd that there are absolutely NO engine pictures... The 409 is the selling point of the car...

I wonder if it has the 12-bolt...

You are correct...the 396 became the Flagship engine....but Dual Quad Manifolds were a dime a dozen in the middle 70's. I think I had 5 at one time including the one on my Impala. The Single Quad were harder to come by for some reason.

Ideas are like children: there are none so wonderful as your own.

I only ever saw (1). I was working on my Impala at my Fathers, and this car pulls up out front. One of the neighbors kids gets out, and the driver gets out and we start talking... He looks at my engine and says, he has one to...I'm thinking ya right its a 65 Impala...He pops the hood and there it is in all it glory.....And the Owner says...She's Real Fine My 409..... I laughed...he was serious....That was 1968.

About ten years ago, I owned a 1961 409 engine, single carb, rated at 340hp. Tried to find a nice affordable 61 bubbletop Impala for a couple years so I could build a restomod/clone SS.
Never found a decent car and someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse, on the 409.

I actually tracked my old car down....Its around, but its lost its history, and of course the engine is long gone, but I still have memories, and a few minutes of Video.
