327 4-Speed: 1964 Chevrolet Bel Air

Claimed to be a two owner car, this ’64 Bel Air is a sweet looking almost original that is ready to drive. Boasting a 327 V8 and a 4 speed, this Chevy looks like a fun and reliable classic for sure. A native California car, this classic is very solid. With a couple of days remaining in the auction, this Chevrolet is bid up to $6,600. Check it out here on eBay out of Grafton, Massachusetts. Thanks to local_sheriff for sharing this neat stick shift driver!

The patina of this car is well matched inside and out. You will find some minor wear and minor discoloration inside, but overall this Chevy is very nice as is. There are a slew of gauges mounted underneath of the dash with what looks to be an aftermarket ignition box. One very neat thing that may “stick” out to you is the manual shift lever. Equipped with its 327 V8 and 4 speed transmission, it is unclear if these items are original to the car. While there are no photos of the engine, the seller mentions that there are Fuelie heads, a mild cam, and an Edlebrock carb and intake manifold. Described simply as “car goes good”. I am willing to bet that it does!

While the exterior looks completely untouched, the seller believes that this Bel Air has been repainted once in its lifetime. Miraculously, there is almost no rust or rot in this car. In fact, the only rust to contend with is in the bottom of the trunk well. A simple fix considering this car’s age and condition. The paint still shies well for the most part, but there are a few areas that look to have been exposed to the sun regularly. A bit of a sleeper, this Bel Air looks like a fantastic ride to enjoy as is, with its seemingly original appearance. Would you burn rubber in this two door sleeper?

    These are the kinds of cars you could find all day long in the Recycler in Southern California for a couple hundred bucks.

    It is amazing to see what people are willing to pay for them now.

    You can tell at least the trans is not original, looks like original steering column with empty hole where shift level once was, probably a three on the tree. Sweet ride!

      Not sure, but looks like it might have started out as an automatic. Can’t tell for sure but looks like in the one picture there might be a shift quadrant on top of the steering column but I can’t be sure.

    I’d have to install a factory tach, or at least the housing with a modern tach. I always liked the way they mounted!

    86 Vette, I believe what you’re looking at is a column mounted tach.

      I have to agree, what I saw likely is to top of the tach visible over the steering column. I took it to be the remnants of a automatic shift quadrant.

    Yup, column mounted tach on the left partially obscured in the pic but as noted above, a hole there the old, probably 3-speed shifter lived.

    You can tell where shifte is mounted. To far back to be factory probably a 3 speed on column and was converted to floor shifter. Than I guess a 4 speed ( probably a saginaw) was converted into it.

  8. Del

    Saginaw 4 speed.

    It will be slow

    Not a hardtop, but there is still something likable about these 2 door post sedans. Less wind noise for sure.
