1964 Chevy Chevelle Malibu SS Convertible

This 1964 Chevelle Malibu Super Sport Convertible was originally built in the Baltimore, MD assembly plant and is a great example of these very eye-catching cars.

The Super Sport was a distinct model available either as a Sport Coupe or Convertible.

The 1964 model year saw the Chevelle launched and was Chevrolet’s answer to the Ford Fairlane and was the first mid-size Chevy. It’s based on the Fisher “A-body” that is shared with the Pontiac Tempest and Buick Skylark.

Later in the production year a 327 was made available for the Chevelle and this is what is under the hood of this amazing convertible. A 3-speed manual transmission was standard on Chevelles. A Powerglide automatic transmission was also available along with the 4-speed manual that this car was purchased with.
