IMO, the best year for full size American cars period.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Interesting that some say '65 was a great looking year for American cars.  I thought Chevrolet and Plymouth were standout beauties, but it ended there for me.  I've always felt that it was a year that stylists were losing their way.

I can understand why.  Chevy for '65 was monumental styling for the decade.  For me, the '61, '62, and '65 were Chevy's winners.
