This 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has the right mix of vintage style and solid cruiser upgrades. For example, you get a desirable hardtop, a beautifully bright interior, four-on-the-floor, and the correctly-sized small block has been upgraded for enhanced power. It all makes for a significant classic that\'s also plenty of fun.
This was the first model year for the Chevelle, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts. Chevrolet tapped into a market that delivered a car that was premium in Malibu trim and looked sporty with the clean hardtop profile. Palomar Red is a year-correct color, but this is an upgrade later in life. So you have a nice gloss to show off the good body panels. The overall impression is this is a car that likes to be an easy cruiser. They even gave you nice details like the bright dual exhaust tips, half-chrome headlights, and a polished set of American Torq Thrust wheels.
The parchment white interior looks stylish against the deep red exterior. The fundamentals like the seats, door panels, headliner, dash, and carpet all have a crisp presentation that makes this quite stylish. So it\'s a great reason to level the windows down on this hardtop and let everyone get a better look inside. And while this looks like a cool cruiser, right down to the classic bench seats, it also knows how to be a proper driver. It includes a sports steering wheel, added oil pressure readout, and a nice grip on the floor shifter.
The engine bay has a nice look with the slick black fender walls that funnel your attention to the bold orange motor and those polished components. This coupe correctly keeps the 327 cubic-inch displacement that was the top V8 for this inaugural year. But it\'s not a stock heart. This mighty motor inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and high-rise intake. And so it exhales with a solid V8 tune from the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. It has nice supporting components like polished aluminum Chevrolet valve covers and an aluminum radiator. So it\'s a strong total package, and you get full control with the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes for easy cruising.
This is a first-year Chevelle with the right premium Malibu style and a hint of speedy SS nature. It makes for a terrific cruiser you know needs to go home with you. Call now!
