1965 Chevelle Interiors
The steering wheel of the base Chevelle 300 is a clean, simple, 2-spoke unit with a center horn button, and color coordinated with the interior.
The steering wheel of the 300 Deluxe is similar to the Malibu and Malibu SS steering wheel with the exception of the 2-tone color configuration and the 4 bright rings on the outer rim.
The Malibu and Malibu SS steering wheel were the same as the 1964 Malibu and Malibu SS steering wheels being two-tone (except black steering wheel and black or white interior) and color coordinated with the interior. Note the 4 bright rings on the outer rim that separate the Malibu/Malibu SS steering wheel from the 300 Deluxe model.
The RPO N34 wood grained plastic steering wheel is carried over from the 1964 model year and will continue into the 1966 model year and was optional throughout the Chevelle lineup.
The base Chevelle 300 door panel was simply appointed with a number of horizontal pleats.
Ivory with black (code 792)
Ivory with turquoise (code 796)
Ivory with slate (code 799)
Several versions of ivory pattern interior were available with contrasting door sill and lower section of the panel itself for Malibu SS only.
Instrument Panel - Group 10.000
Although the 1964 and 1965 Chevelle instrument panels enjoy the same general shape, there are many differences such as trim, emblems, dash pads, switches etc.
