It sounds like it has all the go fast goods, but need one final check on the motor. I believe this would have the 396 in it and it had a 325 HP option or a 425 HP solid lifter option. 65 could have a 340 HP 409 in it, bu looking at your pictures the valve covers are not W motor valve covers and with an August build date the 409 was no longer an option. That car most likely has the 325 HP 396 option since it has an Automatic. Not sure about 1965, but in 1964 and earlier the High Horsepower engines only came with manual transmissions. If it does happen to have the 425 HP engine in it then when restored it could be worth a lot if done right, but you will still most likely have more into the car than you will get out of the car.
Not even going to throw out a price as I'm an X frame W motor impala guy and I would probably significantly under value it as it doesn't mean as much to me.
