1964 Chevrolet Impala SS
1964 Chevy Impala SS (1/25) (fs) (1989 issue)
The 1964 Impala was the last car in the third generation Impalas that ran from 1961 to 1964. For 1964, the Impala was slightly restyled, reverting to a more rounded, softer look. The signature taillight assembly had an “upside-down U” shaped aluminum trim strip above the taillights, but the lights themselves were surrounded by a body-colored panel. The 409-cubic-inch (6.7 L) returned as the big-block option, as well as the 2X4 carburetor setup for the 425 horsepower motors. SS models continued to feature the engine-turned aluminum trim. Rooflines were carried over from ’63
unchanged. Back-up lights were standard.
In 1961, the Impala SS (Super Sport) was introduced to the market. The SS badge was to become Chevrolet’s signature of performance on many models, though it often has been an appearance package only. The Impala’s SS package in 1961 was truly a performance package, beginning with the 348-cubic-inch (5.7 L) V8 engines available with 305 horsepower (227 kW), 340 horsepower (250 kW), and 350 horsepower (260 kW) or the new 409-cubic-inch (6.7 L) V8, which was available with up to 425 horsepower (317 kW). Unlike all other years, the 1961 Super Sport package was available on any Impala, including sedans and station wagons (the sales brochure shows a 4-door hardtop Sport Sedan with the SS package). The package also included upgraded tires on station wagon wheels, springs, shocks and special sintered metallic brake linings. Only 142 ’61 Impala Super Sports came from the factory with the 409, making it a most rare and desirable collectible. Starting for the 1962 model year, the Impala SS was an appearance package limited to hardtop coupe and convertible coupe models.
