In Family Custody: 1964 Chevrolet Impala Maintains its Pristine State as a Virtually New, Unrestored Gem

A new-generation Impala was already on the radar, so the 1964 model year brought only minor changes to America’s new favorite car.

Chevrolet rolled out minor changes in looks, such as aluminum trim for the taillights, while the engine lineup included almost no surprise.

The return of the 409 was probably the biggest surprise, as the big-block unit was available on the 1964 Impala in three configurations. The base unit produced 340 horsepower, while the top version generated 425 horsepower for a more thrilling experience in a SuperSport.

The 1964 Impala published on eBay by the folks at Knucklehead Garage/Carstore – knuckleheadgaragegi on the auction site – provides us with the “most” unmolested look at the original icon.

The car spent its entire lifetime with the same family. Produced at the Janesville Assembly Plant in Wisconsin in July 1964, the Impala comes in a perfect-10 condition that’s impossible to admire in full on a computer. The owner brought the car to several car shows where it won prestigious prizes for one straightforward reason: it’s an all-original, unmolested, and like-new Impala.

The car comes in fully working condition, including the factory air conditioning. The car rolled off the assembly lines with power steering and brakes, tinted windows, an in-dash clock, and a non-glare dash option (incredibly rare on a 1964 Impala).

The owner never restored the car, though they did perform a partial respray. The sellers claim the paint is “mostly” original, so perhaps the only family that owned the vehicle wanted to preserve the tip-top shape and address the minor paint issue with a partial respray.

The Impala looks like a completely new car, which is undoubtedly impressive, considering its age. The interior is unbelievable, mainly because most 1964 Impalas I see these days come with an overwhelming amount of rust that turns them into challenging projects.

As an award-winning Impala, this 1964 hardtop runs and drives perfectly. A 283 (4.3-liter) V8 puts the wheels in motion – this was the base V8 engine on the 1964 Impala. While a big-block unit would’ve made the car even more glorious, an original 283 in perfect condition is impressive, nonetheless.

The car has just 48,000 miles (77,000 km) on the clock.

The pricing expectations are not surprising, considering the car’s condition. The garage in charge of finding a new owner believes $58,000 is a fair price for this Impala, but the Make Offer option is also live.

If you want to see the Impala in person, you can find it in Grand Island, Nebraska. Otherwise, check out the video below to admire its beautiful lines and immaculate interior in all its glory. The listing will expire in 17 days, so you still have enough time to convince your significant other that you need a “new” car
