The market for early '60s Impalas remains strong, and none are so iconic and desirable as the 1964 models. With clean styling, a ton of luxury features, and potent performance thanks to a wide variety of engines under the hood, Chevrolet created an Impala that could be as unique to each buyer as a custom-tailored suit. This 2-door SS sport coupe (yes it is a real code 14 SS) has been thoughtfully restored and presents today as a great show and go cruiser that still packs a ton of comfort and horsepower under the timeless sheetmetal.
Finished in bright Ermine White, this SS stands out among its more common red brothers. Covering straight, clean bodywork, the brilliant white looks awesome with just the right amount of gloss, making it easy to believe it's 1964 all over again. Those long quarter panels are tough to repair if they've been damaged, and given how straight this car is, it's probably never been rusty or hit. All the chrome and other trim pieces, including the bright metal insert running the length of the body, is in excellent condition. Up front, the Impala's grille is undamaged, while out back, all six taillights are bright and clear, including the back-up lamps in the center units.
Inside, it's a very nicely finished black bucket seat interior with a ton of cool options. The interior is mostly original, which should tell you something about how well-maintained this car has been from new, and it all fits together very nicely with nothing looking too new or too old. The console is original and features the SS-exclusive engine-turned trim that matches the dashboard, and there's also an original column-mounted tachometer. This car also comes equipped with a clock and an AM radio with rear speaker. And yes, there are three pedals with a shifter that controls an original 4-speed manual, which is the only way to travel in one of these vintage SS sport coupes.
The engine is Chevy's top moneymaker in 1964, a dual-quad 409. Rated at 425 horsepower by the factory, it was a legitimate threat on the street and virtually unbeatable at the track. With its distinctive arched valve covers and chrome air cleaner, it shows quite well, and the contrasting Chevy Orange paint looks great against the satin black engine bay. Underneath, the chassis is amazingly solid and original. Floors are in excellent condition with no rust or structural issues, again suggesting that this car has always lived in a dry part of the country. Brakes and suspension have been maintained to factory specs, and a recent set of mufflers gives the 409 a deep, powerful voice. Recent 215/75/14 wide whites on original wheels with spinner hubcaps look great, giving it the look of a vintage custom.
