This is one of those great cruising cars that just seems to get all the details right. After all, it\'s a real-deal 1964 Chevrolet Malibu SS in the perfect red/red color theme, small block V8, and a desirable four-speed. So it just feels like a great adventure waiting to happen.
The Chevy Chevelle hit the scene in a big way for the first time in 1964, and a genuine Super Sport convertible like this one was a key reason for the success. The design represents the new edge style of the 1960s, especially the flared rear quarter panels that are one of the car\'s defining features. And the trim line that runs from headlight to taillight showcases more of this car\'s detailed style. There\'s great detail work with the wide chrome bumpers, full correct SS badging, and dual exhaust tips. Plus, the crisply contoured hood bears a familiar resemblance to its big brother, the Impala. The factory-correct Ember Red paint was updated later in life, so you get the kind of luster that makes you love this all-American. And the wire wheel covered with whitewalls not only add sophistication, but also go great with the crisp white folding roof.
As good as this looks with the top in place, a car like this was meant to be open to the world. So you\'ll love the full red on red appearance this convertible offers. As a true Super Sport, it gets the details right with bucket seats up front and a bright center console running in-between. Cruising always feels extra cool when you look out from behind the dual-spoke steering wheel and see the big, bright dash panel with round gauges. And the tach is an especially handy option. You\'ll love how this is all quite correct and nicely preserved/restored – right down to the AM radio that\'s still on display. But you\'ll also notice an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo cleanly mounted below the dash just so your vintage driving can have upgraded tunes.
The 283 cubic-inch V8 is one of those great powerplants that help us celebrate the dawn of the small block\'s dominance. This one has a great era-correct look with the bright Chevy Orange block and the cursive script valve covers. It even has great details like the washer refill glass bottle mounted to the inner fender. The four-barrel carburetor lets this V8 inhale deeply, and the dual exhaust has that nice hint of rumble that tells you there\'s plenty of power in this Malibu SS. Best of all you can get the maximum performance on demand thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
This is a strong running example of the car that launched an icon. So don\'t let this first-year Chevelle SS droptop slip away. Call today!!!
