1965 Chevy Impala SS

Dave’s Chevy Impala SS is an original Iowa car – bought in Ames at Allen Motor Co. Since then, according to all the registrations in the glove box, it has remained Iowa owned for the last 45 years.  Dave and his brother Greg have put in over a thousand hours detailing the Impala and doing various mechanical work.  The car is pretty much stock other than some bigger and nicer wheels and a few engine modifications.  Dave loves cruising the streets listening to Springsteen on KIOA.
