Power comes from the original 327 cubic inch Turbo-Fire V8 engine producing 250 horsepower. This is paired with a Powerglide automatic transmission with the combination coming in at an extra $402. The 327 upgrade would have cost around $203 and Powerglide costing an additional $199 over the standard 3-speed manual transmission.

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 and came with a 140 horsepower, 230 cubic inch six cylinder engine.
