Definitely not a 63, that looks like a 65 to me. In any event, it looks like a nice car. But how do you fit a big boat like that down those tiny European streets?

on paper its a 63 but i know everything looks like a 65, maybe someone switched the body someday or since its build in antwerp they started earlier on the 65 bodies,
i fit it just like my 88 ford f150 fullsize longbed extended cab pickup.
most people make room as they see a large car like that for the others i have the patience to put it in park and wait till they do.

Welcome to the Team Johnny!

Yup I agree with others. Your car is a 1965 model. The 250 six wasn't introduced until then and of course the car looks like a 1965.

Welcome Johny, If someone told you its a 63, they don't know their cars very well. 65 Impala's were not produced there in 1963. Hope you have paperwork stating that you bought a 1965 Impala. Also would like to see more photos.
