Up for NO RESERVE auction is an all original 1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport that has been sitting in a barn for the last 33 years with the same owner. This original Super Sport has been garaged kept this entire time and was last registered and on the road in 1980 (see NYS inspection sticker in windshield) This car has Factory Air, Power Steering, and Power Brakes. Also the original 12-bolt rear end is STILL in tact. I did get this car to run off the fuel I poured in the carburetor to see if she would fire. It did, pretty quickly but will definitely need a tune up (also needs a battery). Anticipate winching or flat bed this car on a trailer. It will run but not long enough to get it trailered. Also when I was moving it around the strap broke the petcock on the lower radiator. It will need to have a new pet cock brazed in to hold antifreeze. I have a window sticker, vehicle guarantee, and original owners manual. This car was sold new at Ithaca Motor Company in Ithaca NY. I have the transferable registration (title) to go along with the sale. Super Sport Impalas with factory air are hard to come by. The original 327 engine, automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear end appear to be original to the car.
The previous owner told me one of the previous owners passengers accidentally pushed the car into reverse while it was driving. I'm not sure what this did to the shifter or the transmission but it is currently in neutral. As you can see in the photos it is a restoration project. The car is totally complete minus the original air cleaner and ONE hubcap (I HAVE THREE OF FOUR). The interior is all there and in very very good shape. The seats have original plastic covers which looks like they preserved the original vinyl very good. The original upholstery appears to be rip/tear free. The headliner is also excellent just needs a good cleaning. The dash pad is not cracked at all and surprisingly the steering wheel isn't either! The dash is not cut and is all original. All of the original glass is still in the car, front windshield has a scratch from wiper. The center console is in good shape.
Chrome is OK will need to be redone for show quality. Stainless is in good shape. The car has some frame rust as you can see in the picture. The rockers will need work, quarters will need rust repair, as well as the fenders and doors. Floors were patched in the front (not great) The pictures write the script. Doors shut perfect with good body gaps. Included are tons of parts. Basically an entire interior (bucket seats, another SS center console, rear seat, sail panels, door panels, etc...), another rear bumper with brackets, front fender and inner fender (some good parts), good trunk lid and LH/RH extensions with taillights, an extra complete door, and an extra dash.
As I mention, this car is a project and will need to be winched. It will run but I didn't try to get it to drive. Please bid with confidence and with intentions to follow through.

Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.

Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.
The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.

Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."
While this year marks 60 years of the Chevrolet Corvette, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance focused on one of the coupe's most sought after models, the 1963 Sting Ray. General Motors design boss Ed Welburn was on hand to show off the all-new C7 Corvette, but even the hard-edged styling of the 2014 Stingray couldn't take away from the beautiful 1963 models sitting out on the field.
In addition to the original Sting Ray and the 1959 Sting Ray Concept, some of the other classic 'Vettes included "Big Tank" racecars, an interesting cutaway coupe, a right-hand-drive Z06 and the attention-grabbing 1963 Corvette Rondine by Pininfarina. Another impressive Corvette was the 1964 Corvette XP-819 rear-engine prototype. Owner Mike Yager had the car finished as a driving chassis for this year's show, but promises the car will be back to its original glory in time for next year's event.
