Almost nothing changed from the 1964 to 1965 Chevy truck model as far as design. However, there were a couple of very important changes in 1965 Chevy truck parts. The biggest change was the addition of air conditioning. It’s hard for people to imagine a car or truck without air conditioning these days, so just imagine how exciting it was when it was first introduced. The other upgrade was a 220 hp V8 engine which was a nice power boost over the 165 hp engine of 1964.
This 1965 Chevy truck for sale on Craigslist for $4800 is a bit of a mutt. The cab is from a 65 Chevy truck but the rear end is from a 1994 1/2 ton and the bed is from a 1994 Sierra. The engine is a 1974 250 straight six and God only knows what other years of parts have been thrown in there. Even with this odd mixture it might be a decent deal. It supposedly runs well and price is much lower than the $8000 the owner dumped into it. A job loss prompted the sale so the motivation to sell is quite high.
Here’s a shot of the 94 Sierra bed. With the paint job it nearly blends end and most people would probably never notice, but when you take a closer look you can tell something is a bit off. Oh well, at least you could claim your truck is unique.
Now here is what the truck is supposed to look like. Granted it’s lifted so it’s not exactly how the truck original looked but it’s pretty damn close. Now the current bid on Ebay is $3500 which hasn’t cracked the reserve price but I urge you to buy this truck at all costs because it comes with a set of fuzzy dice! Now, it’s common knowledge that no 1965 Chevy pickup is complete without a pair of fuzzy dice. As an extra bonus, it also has a chrome steering wheel.
But questionable taste is not the only thing you get. This truck comes with some nice upgrades like new U Joints, new brakes, power steering, 33″ Wild Country Tires, and a rear window gun rack. I know what you are thinking. “Fuzzy dice, chrome steering wheel, and a gun rack?! This deal is too good to be true.” Usually you would be correct but sometimes, just sometimes, a once and a lifetime opportunity stares you in face. The only question now is, what are you going to do about it?
