The Impressive Statistics of the 1964 Impala SS – Combining Nostalgia with Remarkable Engine Power

Back in 1965, Chevrolet’s Impala managed to become the first car in the United States to sell more than 1 million units in a year, and it goes without saying all its predecessors had a major contribution to this historic achievement.

The 1964 Impala too played a key role in the performance of its successor, especially given it was a model which itself recorded strong sales. Out of nearly 1.6 million cars built by Chevrolet for the model year 1964, no less than 890,000 were part of the Impala series, with the SS package installed on over 536,000 cars.

One of these Impala SS models manufactured for the model year 1964 is right here in front of your eyes, though as you can easily figure out by simply checking out the photo gallery, it doesn’t necessarily come in its best shape.

This looks like a car that has never been restored, though, on the other hand, this is exactly what it seems to need right now to re-become the genuine head-turner a classic Impala deserves to be. And, at first glance, it does seem to check many boxes for a solid candidate, though a visual inspection is definitely needed to figure out what fixes are required.

eBay seller gsxrman12 says the interior is complete, but on the other hand, the Impala displays rust in the typical spots, so you should inspect the floors and the trunk to see just how much damage has been caused here.Under the hood, there’s a matching number 327 (5.3-liter) V8, though no other information about it has been provided.

The 1964 Impala was offered with a 283 (4.6-liter) generating 195 horsepower as the standard V8, while the 327 was an option available with either 250 or 300 horsepower.The top-of-the-range engine, however, was the 409 (6.7-liter) V8 with 340, 400, and 425 horsepower versions.The bad news for this Impala is that nobody seems to be interested in taking the car home, despite the matching numbers engine under the hood. The eBay auction has received zero bids so far, with only a few hours before coming to an end, so the $9,000 starting big should totally be reconsidered.
