165 is going to be too short. Not the same skis but I had a chance to demo P90 last year in 165 and the size was good for me at 5'5" / 150 lbs. I ended up getting P98@172cm. There are some guys here at Epicski that I talked to that are about my size maybe a little bit taller and they are with at least the 172cm on the P100 and I was told they wish they had the 179cm.
You should probably go for at least the 172 if not the 179, I think both sizes would work, but the 165 just seems too short. Try to get some feedback from Uilleann, he is about my size and skis the 172 but wish it was the 179.
Me - 4 seasons on 186 P100, my wife -3 seasons on 176 P100. I agree with everybody else that165 is way, way too short. That's why they are for sale as you say 'really cheap'. I don't totally agree about recommending a 172. If you are looking for more float, more off piste, and faster lines then you could go 176 otherwise 172 would be fine.
Also as everybody says, they are awsome skis although technologically dated by now.
