I think you're going to have to be a little more specific.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

No, they are not the same width and the mounting is different. You need a rear end from a 65-70 full size Chev.

Since this includes brakes as well as suspension I can say that the Chevelle brakes will bolt up to the 1965 rear end but they are smaller than the brakes on the bigger car. the Chevelle used a nine inch drum and the Impala had an eleven inch drum.

Though both cars used coil springs the difference besides overall width (the Chevelle is considered an intermediate sized car when compared to the full sized Impala) is that the Impala used straight back trailing control arms with a Panhard bar to center the rear while the Chevelle used triangulated upper control arms that didn't require anything to center the rear.
