1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS Description:

Very stock/original 1964 Chevelle Malibu SS. Red with black interior. Great shape, runs great, no rust. 328 ci 195 HP engine.
I believe it may only have 63k original miles due to its history, but can't verify that. I had a reputable classic car shop go over it with a fine-tooth comb this past Spring. Mainly replaced bushings, belts, hoses, fluids, tires, and tuned it. They kept a box of a few parts because they were all original parts on the car. Paint and interior in great shape.
The only thing not matching the cowl tag is the color of the top. It's an older model top with big brass zippers in good condition so it looks original, but it's white and the cowl tag is coded for black. I bought a brand new black top that comes with the car if the new owner wants to change them out for the matching color. It won the judges choice award at the Summer Salute show in May. It's also the same as the car John Travolta drove in Pulp Fiction.
Clean title in hand.

I mis-typed the engine size on the original post, jumbled the numbers. As you can see from the photos the engine is the original 1964 Chevelle engine which is a 283 ci.

The original post I was going off of memory on the mileage. I took the car out from storage today and the exact mileage right now is 64,213. I also added two photos from today with the top up.

I was told today by someone who bought one of these in the 60's that the top could be original. Sometimes the people ordering them changed the color and after the cowl tag was printed. The previous collector swore it was original, looks like it could possibly be? I have a new black one so the option is yours.

I had a question about under the car. It's low so it will be hard to get any good pictures without a lift but I'll try to get some. It has an original style dual exhaust, but without mufflers. No rust under the car that I can see, very clean.The last two collectors and myself had it covered and garaged in a dry climate in either Idaho, Utah, or Nevada.

You can look up the value on this car on Hagerty valuation site. It has gone up over 13% over the last 3 years. $32,545 for "Good" condition, and $40,020 for "excellent condition. This car leans toward the latter. I have the reserve set below that range. I've searched these cars and you will be hard-pressed to find one for sale more original than this one.

I also just realized I mis-typed the engine hp and carb type in the original post. Someone mentioned it to me and they are right. The original engine stickers have 220 hp and it is a 4 bbl carb. Someone replaced the air cleaner decal with the wrong info. I added the pics of the engine decal and the carburetor. That also raises the Hagerty valuation to between $35,120 in "good" condition and $43,240 in "excellent conditon, so my reserve is well below the range. Sorry, I haven't had the car that long. I am a young purist and I search for all original cars, try to make them perfect if need be, show them for a while, get bored, sell them, and start over. I try to learn as much as I can about each car I own. Still learning as I go from potential buyers. Thank you!

Another question from a watcher today. Yes, it also appears the tag is coded M for a Powerglide. You can see in the photos the stamps on the engine and manual transmission. It is stamped JA, a 1964 283 engine to be paired with a manual 4-speed transmission. The transmission codes also seem to fall in the 1964 range of codes. Not sure if the engine was ever switched, but it does appear to be the correct year for the engine and code to be attached to the correct manual 4 speed for that time period. Please message any other questions and I'll do my best to answer or get a picture.

Another question today: do all the guages and top work. Yes, as far as I can see everything on the car works fine. There is really nothing left to do to this car. Was also asked if this is a true SS. Yes, you can decode the picture of the cowl tag and see it is a true SS car.
