Introducing one of Chevrolet’s most glamorous cars for 1964 – the Impala Sport Coupe. Here’s one that has spent its whole life in California and Las Vegas having been originally built in Atlanta, GA.
1964 was a very busy year for Chevy producing a lot of full-size cars. They produced 1.6 million Biscaynes, Bel Airs and Impalas!
The rear panel of the 64 models was redesigned but still retained the distinctive three tail lights per side on the impala. Other distinctive Impala features included the color-accented bodyside moldings together with impala lettering and emblem on the rear fender.
Note the roof design was styled so the Sport Coupe looks like a convertible.
Now the Super Sport models were part of their own series the regular Impala was now the second most expensive series in the Chevrolet line-up.
Your money bought you extra-thick foam cushion seats with leather-grain vinyl and cloth coverings, extra-long armrests, an electric clock, bright aluminum front seat end panels, Impala center emblem on the steering wheel and a few other interior refinements.
Chevrolet managed to sell 442,292 Impala Sport Coupes for the 1964 model year at a base price of $2,678. This came with a 230 Turbo-Thrift 6-cylinder engine and 3-speed manual transmission as standard.
If you wanted the 250 horsepower 327 V8 that this car was ordered with, then it would have cost you a further $203.
