No photos, but these cars with the 300 horse 327 were mighty fast on the street back then. The 65's with the 350 horse motor were even better, although few and far between in our area. It's a shame Chevy didn't go ahead with the 365 horse motor in the 64's. That would have been an awesome package.
I owned one ,triple black , in "65" bought it new.
ronnie schwitzer's 007....a distant relative, bill postel(sp) owned the shop on the side.
the tiger II belongs to (guess he still has it) a friend of a hamb'r...not sure if the two cars pic'd , are the same though...think the awb 65 was durhams old car....
aren't you looking for that piece of door trim...?
- c10m... out of the 201- z16's made, one triple black was recorded.
Yep, that's the facts. Here's a red/red one he had also....... Imagine having two?
My old 65, 283 4 speed black interior with bucket seats. I pulled the motor and put in a 327 and just beat the crap out of it and this car never let me down (breakdown), I still miss this car. I came across it back in the late 80's in some guy's backyard but didn't have the money to buy it back (just bought a house). I'm still looking for it.
Don't know about the records but I ordered one, COPO car, ordered Feb. 1965, delivered in June of 1965.
Purchased thru Kleinfelter Chevrolet , Jonestown , PA. Had it 4 years sold it to a kid, he had it about a month and wrapped it around a tree
So you has a 396/375 factory Z16 with the different trim that you ordered? Is that what you're saying?
I have no doubt that they made any amount of triple black 65s, just not the Z16s....
yes i am
Yup, wish I still had it .
Don't know what you mean by the different trim ?
Had the black out grill, the silver around the back trunk trim, & SS badging, console, Sun Tack on the column by the factory, M21 trans rev., reverb in the trunk
Trunk trim like this?????
These are different Chevelles than any you could order in 65....
No see the chrome on the bottom just below the tunk lock, mine had same type pc. around at top and I ordered it with no engine badging.
It came thru with it on anyway and dealer took it off.
I didn't have the bumper guards either.
I found that ordering depended on finding a dealer that would work with you. The car was rejected twice by GM Styling Engineering Dept. due to ( of all things ) they felt the triple black "wasn't a wise style choice".
i know of a person that said his dealer ordered him a 300 with a 396 in 65. he's looking for some of his old paperwork. i told him , if siad such car was real , it would have to be a 1 of ....? deal.
A few for my friend Freddie!
Did you / he ever run it inthe quarter ? What class, "A" stock ?
What did it do ?
There was a guy a town over that had a factory stock, Chevelle SS, 1965, 327, 350 HP , ran A stock, that really hauled ass, used to eat the street 396's , 409's , hemi's, dam thing was fast.
GM never put a Sun tachometer on the column in a Chevelle from the factory. I can guarantee you that.
I have a 65 builder. these 64-65 are harder to come by around here than the later years. I haven't done anything with it yet but collect a few parts for it. I also have a fact 4sp wagon for sale here.
Would like to know what became of this super nice '65 sedan?
Very nice '64 Hardtop that ran at Vargo's Drag-o-way! Would like more pics of this one?
You would lose that bet, they certainly did.
I didn't want to lose the clock in the dash and ordered the tack on the colume. I was there when the car was off loaded from the trailer & yes it was on. Also had the real wood steering wheel, same as the Vett . On COPO cars you could order what you wanted. Took a long time to get them but you get anything.
The bottom car is a sedan with the post removed. Check the rear window.
