1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Coupe

This 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Coupe in Meadow Green is a colour you don't see very often. It's the original paint with the car benefiting from spending its life in California having been originally assembled in the Southgate plant.

No longer simply a package, the Super Sport was a series in its own right and only available in the 2-door styles, the Impala SS was Chevrolet's high end model and distinguished with SS identification trim inside and out. Except for the Corvette, it was the most expensive Chevy available in '64.

Unique to the SS was the use of an upper body side panel with silver anodized insert with a machined swirl pattern. The rear cove also used these silver anodized inserts to highlight the outline. Special wheel covers were also provided.

Power comes from the original 327 cubic inch Turbo-Fire V8 engine with four-barrel carburetor producing 250 horsepower. This is paired with a desirable Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. The combination was a $440 option and was more expensive than opting for an automatic.

Other options on this car include power steering ($86) and power brakes ($43).

Chevrolet built 185,325 Impala Super Sport models for the 1964 model year. This figure contains a mix of the 2-door hardtop and convertible. A realistic estimate is about 90% of those cars were the hardtop which had a base price of $2,839.
