It looks to be from 1967.
Could be a 302,327 or 350.Can you get a pic of the numbers stamped on top by the head?
It would be 1 letter followed by 4 numbers then 2 more letters.
Also,if you can get a pic of the stamp on the motor in the car,that will tell if the motor if original.

I would like to see the pad stamp on the engine on the stand. That has the "potential" to be worth some serious money.

We need to find a trustworthy knowledgeable member to visit with her in person and provide some first-hand help. I'd hate to see her liquidate these things and not get reasonably good prices for things.

Re: Clueless* inherited 1965 Chevelle SS

I see two spare motors...

I'd still guess about $15k+ on the car only... Nice paint, nice interior, at least in the pictures, but its a powerglide car, and the engine isn't super clean or detailed... Stock wheels, single master so probably stock drum brakes... Given the engine compartment isn't highly detailed, its probably not "restored" underneath...

Once you go RAT, you never go back...

Could need rebuilt or it could be a fresh rebuild. Documentation or personal inspection would be needed. In any event I think these items need to be priced correctly. Too low.and.the seller leaves a lot of money on the table. Too high and there is no sale. We see cars/ items in threads in this forum daily that the sellers have their items priced.way over market value. Overpriced items sit on the shelf and become stale. If I see a car that has been for.sale for.several months I automatically think it is overpriced or there is something mechanically wrong with the vehicle.
I mean as a starting point to see how it goes. You can always come down but you can't go up.
I still bet somebody somewhere will give around 25K for it

With any luck you might be able to just use a file and get a new housing and it should fix the problem. Cost would be about $30 for all the parts you would need and it easy to do, even my wife fixed hers so we can walk you through it, or a tech can do it in about an hour.
Could that water neck be a newer chrome style with the o-ring?

Re: Clueless* inherited 1965 Chevelle SS

After looking at all photos supplied, the car alone should be valued at $16K and higher depending on the drivetrain components and condition.

With the lift I just installed in the garage, I've got the room and funding, but I'd probably get murdered and buried under my deck. Looks like a nice car from the photos. I agree that it will fall into the $16-25k range, probably more toward the higher end of that range.. Personally, I would wait about until around early April to list it anywhere as that is the prime selling season.

The T-stat housing leak..Since original poster isn't mechanically inclined, I'd try leaving it as is, and including it in any listing (for example: "there is a slight leak at the thermostat housing from sitting for so long.. I've been told it is an under $50 fix").

Whomever wrote that comment about the photos being like raw meat to a pack of wild dogs was right on the money. :-)

Re: Clueless* inherited 1965 Chevelle SS

My two cents is that this car will realistically go around $22 - 25k. But you never know. As other have suggested, start in the high $20s and go from there. Don't be in a hurry unless you really need the money. Good luck.

cool ! possibly a 327 and a 307 where you found those stamps might be another set of numbers on the same pad those #'s would help to better identify !

I think the DE engine is the original engine (283/195 PG car). The car was assembled in the 1st week of December and the engine stamping is November 19th. See link to Dales site below. If you have the warranty booklet the metal plate on the last page would tell us for sure.
