Redesigned in 1965, the fourth Impala set an all-time industry annual sales record of more than 1 million units in the U.S.. All new full-size Chevrolets eschewed the "X" frame for a full-width perimeter frame, a new body which featured curved, frameless side glass (for pillarless models), sharper angled windshield with newly reshaped vent windows, and
redesigned full-coil suspension. 1965 Super Sport exteriors differed only slightly from regular Impalas. (Text from Wikipedia.com).
It hass been well documented that 1965 resulted in a lackluster season. Lost in the story is Chevrolet. Despite widespread rumors that it would make a return to racing after aligning itself with the misinterpreted AMA ban on motorsports, the division remained grounded: no factory-backed racing. But that didn't stop a few pioneering racers from giving the brand their best effort, including Tom Hunter and Roy Mayne.
Tom purchased the cheapest Chevy Impala SS off the Hunter Chevrolet showroom floor and, with Roy, began its conversion. Hand-lettered and still sporting its factory Evening Orchid paint and 283 emblems, the car's first outing came at Atlanta International Raceway. (Text by Matthew Litwin in the August, 2011 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines)
The 1965 season was clearly dominated by the Ford Galaxie winning 48 of the 55 races and Ned Jarrett claiming his second champion title. It took until july 1966, when Bobby Allison won the first race at Oxford Plains Speedway in a '65 Chevy. Two more victorys followed that year and three more in 1967, all by Allison.
