The last Chevrolet Impala model ever produced rolled off the line in February, much to the dismay of devoted Bow Tie brand fans. Nevertheless, the legacy of the Impala nameplate lives on thanks to well-preserved examples like the 1964 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport two-door hardtop sport coupe featured here.
Originally sold new at Welborn Chevrolet in Honea Path, South Carolina, this ’64 now presents in excellent condition thanks to a full restoration. The body panels are draped in Ember Red paint and come complemented by superb chrome trim bits front to back. In the corners, we also find the original Impala SS wheel covers.
Moving inside, this 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS shows off with a matching red vinyl interior, which looks fantastic against the Ember Red paint. Broad bucket seats up front and a bench in the rear provide the seating, while the red dash is highlighted by a factory tachometer mounted just behind the steering wheel. Just below the tach and to the right is a period-correct radio, below which is a shift lever for the four-speed manual transmission.
Speaking of the mechanical bits, this Impala boasts a 327 V8 engine which, when new, produced around 300 horsepower. Power brakes work to slow it down.
“This example drives as well as some new vehicles on the road today – you simply have to test drive it to full understand the outstanding quality and craftsmanship throughout,” the seller writes.
Now, this 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS is on offer from Specialty Sales Classics, and is listed at $49,990. The car also includes a wealth of documentation, such as the original owner’s manual, window sticker, build sheet, dealer’s owners pouch, and the original title.
“This outstanding 1964 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport Hardtop shows excellent in person and it may be the most pristine example we’ve ever sold,” the seller writes.
