Went back and measured the cars length and it is 213" long definitely a 1965 impala. Thanks everyone for the info.

With a 10-bolt rear end too. 

Is it valuable? Nobody would care if I harvested it.

I noticed it has its original rear shocks still installed. IF they prove to still work properly and are not visibly damaged, you MIGHT be able to sell them to collectors who want to restore originals for their cars. It likely had an aluminum Powerglide transmission, which USED to be considered undesirable (but now racers like to modify these transmissions for the drag strip). There might be other parts worth saving? (Keep in mind this was not a heavy duty or special high performance version of the full-size 65 Chevy). But the entire car? No, I think not.

I may have misinterpreted your original quesiton. Perhaps you were asking specifically about the differential?

 

The 10-bolt rear end for a full-size Chevrolet in 1965 was the standard, non-high-performance rear axle. There are still a LOT of them around. I doubt there is yet much demand for them.
