1964 Chevrolet Impala SS with Lots of Features - Muscle Cars Blog1964 Chevrolet Impala offers full size comfort, full size attitude! Not many cars can swagger as well as a ’64 Impala, and few can carry a screaming orange paint job, full custom interior, an air ride suspension and deep 18” billet rally wheels like this one! If you like cruising in the large lane, piling on mile after mile, read on! This 1964 Chevrolet Impala features bright orange pearl finish, crisp white interior, bulletproof 350ci/Powerglide combination, power steering, front disc brakes, air Ride Technologies air suspension, freshly sorted and detailed mechanicals.

Obviously, the first thing that hits you is the bright orange pearl paint. It’s shiny and VERY attention-grabbing! The roof was painted a contrasting pearl white, and check out the airbrushed Impala logos on the C pillars! The trim is all there and generally very nice. Again, it’s not over the top, but this car was built to cruise! Gaps are nice, while the doors, hood and trunk close nicely. The big billet rally wheels at all four corners steal the show 18 in diameter, custom built for the car, and wrapped in Nitto NT555R high performance tires. The redlines were added by Diamondback tires, and you’ll see they’re so new the stickers are still on ‘em! Click on Read more to get more!

With this car’s mission set to driver, it was first in typical used car fashion, with little leaks and minor annoyances. Then the motor and engine compartment were pulled to detail, re-gasketed everything from the intake to the oil pan before coating the assembly in bright Chevrolet Orange. There were added a new water pump, new plugs, wires, cap and rotor, all new hoses, new belts, new battery cables, new filters, new fluids and more. While it was out, the firewall was painted along with the underside of the hood and the wheelwells in proper chassis black. Then rebuilt the steering cylinders, added new sway bar bushings, fixed the air ride system, bled the brakes and generally freshened everything touched! The engine is a mid 70′s 350, which has more torque than the original 283 could dream of, and with the HEI ignition and Edelbrock carb runs like it should.

Inside, the original SS-spec interior was customized from door panel to door panel and from the airbrushing on the dash to the bright white headliner! New seat covers, in brilliant white, are in place, matching the door panels and dash pad. The carpeting is bright orange to complement the exterior. The dash, painted the same color as the exterior, includes a flaming SS logo in front of the gauges too cool! This is a comfortable, full size car with attitude!

Underneath, clean floor pans are coated in undercoating and chassis black. Factory spec? Nah, but this car wasn’t meant to sit still! The control arms, frame and other suspension pieces are solid, with fresh or newer bushings at all points. Glasspacks add the right 60′s vibe while the Air Ride Technologies four corner system lets you set the ride anywhere or anyhow you like it. This is a car that looks great standing still but SCREAMS for the road ahead!

Iconic and powerful, gorgeous and ready to run, this ’64 has a ton going for it. Admit it you’ve wanted one of these cars, and were waiting for the right one to show up. This Impala is ready for show and go!
