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.
The Chevelle Super Sport came with a very classy interior which included leather-grain vinyl bucket seats, a unique instrument cluster and center console with the Powerglide and 4-speed equipped cars.
The base engine that came with the Chevelle was actually the 6-cylinder, 194 cubic inch Hi-Thrift that output 150 horsepower. There were also two versions of the 283 engines available. 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.
The SS version of the Malibu Convertible cost a further $162. Other options on this car include: power steering and power brakes costing $86 and $43 respectively.
When new the base price of the SS Malibu Convertible would have been $2,749.
