    I see no need to have a car this nice and not leave the original drive train in it.To me when people do these things I think it lowers the value of the car.I have a 64 Impala SS that is a 3 speed on the column.People say put a four speed in it.If the car had wanted a four speed in it would have gotten it at the factory.

    The car in the photo is not a Super Sport, it has the wrong side moldings.

      Who said it was an SS?

        I think it wanted to be an SS. You hear it all the time about these cars that want to be more than they were coming out of the factory. I think in this case, it’s referred to as ‘SS Envy’. I’ve heard of Cutlass’s that wanted to be 442’s, Camaro’s that wanted to be Z28’s. It’s a sad thing for these poor cars. Never given a proper chance at being something more. Detroit was known for being really mean among the cities that committed these crimes against automobiles.

      I only saw it called a Sport Coupe, which is correct. Not to be confused with a Super Sport.

      The factory paperwork on my 64 says “2 door hardtop Sport Coupe”.

    Beautiful car!! My mother had a 62 red on red with a white convertible top!! I used to sit in the speaker cut out in the back seat while driving through the streets of cape cod in the 70’s. Those were the days!!!

    I have always believed and prices reflect it, that the original from the factory, what ever that may have been, is the most valuable. I could have had a 64 years ago that had a 409 in it but I never really cared for for the grill area on the 64s. This does look clean and if I could get it for about 15k I would jump on it, even though I still don’t really care for the nose.

    Why couldn’t I have been born rich instead of so damn handsome? At least then, I could better afford more cars. lol

    My grandmother used to have a ’64 Impala SS. It was her baby. It eventually became my mom’s first car, and she told me that she had a love/hate relationship with it because it was pretty, but had no A/C of any kind. It eventually got rear-ended, so they had to sell it to someone who wanted to restore it, and they never saw it again. My grandpa told me he was very worried when the car got hit, because he wasn’t sure where he ranked compared to that car in Grandma’s mind. I grew up hearing stories about the car, and I’ve always wanted to try to track it down, see what happened to it, and, if possible, restore it. I have the VIN number, so maybe someday I could build a replica of it with all the same options that Grandma’s Impala had.

    Restored original is worth more if it is a rare model. This car is worth more with the improvements
