This 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS is a real deal Super Sport with great options! Heading into the 1964 model year, Chevrolet seemed to be missing mid-size vehicle in their passenger car lineup. On one hand, the GM marque had compact cars with the Corvair and Chevy II/Nova and on the other size Chevrolet had full-size cars such as the Biscayne, Bel Air, and Impala. That gap was filled in 1964 with the introduction of the Chevelle, a car that straddled the gap between a compact and a full size. The Chevelle shared a platform with other GM mid-size models including the Pontiac Tempest, Oldsmobile F-85, and Buick Skylark. The new mid-size Chevelle line was divided into two distinct trim levels, the entry level Chevelle 300 series and plusher Chevelle Malibu Series. Up front, the new Chevelle had its own unique grille and front end design that diverged from the Chevy IIs single headlight and wider spaced grille look but was, to an extent, reminiscent of the full-size passenger cars with a similar looking grille pattern and a pair of dual headlights. Down the sides, the body lines were pronounced, yet tasteful, and, depending on the model, featured a variety of chrome side trim configurations. The rear end design more closely resembled that of a Chevy II with single taillight pods on either side of the decklid. Further elevating the Malibu series was the availability of the Super Sport SS option package, which gave the new Chevelle Malibu a bit more of a sporty look and feel. Special trim moldings and SS emblems adorned the exterior of the Malibu SS and stepped up the exterior appearance. The Super Sport interiors were also a bit more luxurious and featured additional instrumentation as well. Under the hood on this particular 64 Chevrolet Malibu SS is a 327 Cubic Inch V8 engine topped with a Holley intake manifold and Edelbrock single 4 barrel carburetor. The 327 V8 is backed by a 4 speed manual transmission that gives this Chevelle Malibu SS a fantastic muscle car feel while cruising down the road. Exhaust exits the Chevy small block through a set of headers and out through a dual exhaust setup that generates a nice throaty sound out the back. This 64 Chevrolet Chevelle comes equipped with several fantastic options! With power steering, driving this Malibu is a total joy especially when you have to squeeze into a tight parking space a the local car show or drive-in. Further helping manuver in or out of a tight spot is a chrome outside drivers side mirror, which is always a welcome addition to any classic car. Power is sent from the 327 powerplant to the rear axle through a Positraction rear differential, so you can be sure youll keep the rubber to the pavement on this muscle car. Speaking of rubber, this 1964 Chevelle Malibu SS rides on a set of thin whitewall radial tires paired with SS wheelcovers giving this 64 Chevy a fantastic look and even better ride. The exterior of this Super Sport Chevelle has been correctly refinished in a beautiful Palomar Red paint that completes the exterior look of the car. The interior of this 1964 Chevrolet Malibu SS is gorgeous! The front bucket seats and rear bench seat have been reupholstered in black vinyl.

The steering wheel has been upgraded to a woodgrain model that gives a little extra flair to the interior appearance.
