MY FIRST CAR-owned from 3/73-9/73 bought for $750.. a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 2 door station wagon. It looked like the 55,56 and 57 Chevrolet Nomad , I have only seen 2 since 73 even though I always look and it wasnt until the internet that I found out how rare they were....even more so than the Nomad . Only 4,378 were made in 64 & 65 ...combined.(Honda makes about 350k Accords per year). Restored today they are worth up to 40k and they show up in California with the hot rodders. It had a floor mounted 4spd shifter ,dual exhausts and a V8. I hand sanded and primered the entire car over summer of 73 and I repainted it white for $60. Dad forced me to sell by 9/73 since it was problematic.After adding 15k miles and restoring her I sold it for $850 and she was quite nice by the time I saw her drive away.A guy from an auto supply store up past Williston Park,LI,NY bought it . I would imagine it may still be around in some form even today since it was too nice and too rare to let go to waste. Google 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 2 door Wagon to see one.
