A real-deal 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS coupe in pristine white is already a desirable classic. But then when you mix the period-correct V8 with performance components, give you the control of a four-speed manual, and the comfort of modern A/C, well then, this one turns into a full wish-list hardtop.
Impala coupes are highly collectable because the wide chrome grille up front and the broad six taillight arrangement are both icons of the 60s. And because these were the top trim of the era, it not only received wraparound chrome bumpers, but also the Impalas had the great full-length trim for added flair. And everything from the panel fit to the weatherstripping tells you this one has received all the right care for over half a century. But what really makes this a standout is the paint. Ermine White is a great color that was even shared with the Corvette. Yet on this Impala, the professional respray gives this classic the kind of luster that reminds us this was the top dog in the Chevy full-size lineup. The final piece to catch the eye-catching package is a set of ARE torque thrust wheels staggered 17/18-inches front/rear for the perfect stance.
Impalas are great coupes to collect because they have the cool pillarless hardtop style that make them an instant classic, and at the same time, these full-size Chevys comfortably fit plenty of friends. So when it comes time to carry everyone, do it in style with these white vinyl seats that are flanked by bold red on the carpeting, dash, and SS-specific center console. Sitting behind the wheel feels like time warp with the proper Impala center cap on the highly stylized rim. Plus, the wide speedometer is a great hallmark of the era. But then your senses start to notice some very modern upgrades. You can hear it in the upgraded AM/FM stereo with digital tuner; you feel it in the ice-cold R134a air conditioning; and you see it in the large SunPro tach. In fact, that last one starts to get you thinking there might be something special under the hood, too.
The engine bay looks great with black fender walls and body-matching white firewall, and nestled in the middle is a performance V8. And while this is a period-correct 327 cubic-inch block, it has been enhanced with a full Edelbrock package that includes the valve covers, air topper, four-barrel carburetor, and intake. It adds plenty more power to the V8 and an extra growl to the dual exhaust. And you are in complete control of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission and Hurst permanence shifter. But more than just powerful, this is a great cruiser thanks to power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern ZR rated tires. There's even a Champion aluminum radiator so that this Impala stays cool even if you're sitting in traffic with the A/C pumping.
A stellar presentation with all the best upgrades for showing off and driving your classic. This is a total package Impala SS that's ready today, so it might not be here tomorrow. Call now!!!
