65 Chevy Impala SS open headers irritates my neighbor
Here's my original high school car, numbers matching (327 c.u.i.) bought in
1972. Decided to open the headers and cruise around my subdivision a
little, but end up ticking off my neighbor. I didn't even drive by his
house - he lives up the block the opposite direction. When he heads to the
back of my car to take a pic of my license plate, I realize this could turn
against me. Funny thing is, he doesn't actually recognize me until I get
out of the car - then we "share the love".

This 1964 Impala is a real, numbers-matching Super Sport that has been
refurbished "as needed" over its 45-year life, but never completely
disassembled and restored. It looks great, has a rumbling 327 cubic-inch V8
with factory air-conditioning, and the top goes down - what more could you
The body is very straight with good panel alignment and gaps, remarkable
for a convertible of this age. It has been repainted in its original Ermine
White at some point, and the paint still presents very nicely - even the
nose is chip-free. All the stainless trim is intact, shiny, and straight.
Even the impossible to replace engine-turned trim pieces unique to the SS
are present and in excellent condition. There's a new windshield, a set of
reproduction steel fender skirts on the rear fenders, the bumpers are new,
and the hubcaps are NOS. The convertible top and rear window were recently
replaced at a cost of over $1500 using dark blue BMW canvas that really
pops next to the white paint. In fact, the first time that top has ever
been folded and the new top boot installed is when it arrived in our
The drive-train in this car, with only 84,512 original miles on it, is
still strong and willing. It's a 327/250 with a Powerglide, which is about
as durable and trouble-free a combination as GM ever put in a car, and it
runs better than a lot of freshly restored cars we've seen. It's had some
recent work to keep it in top condition, including a rebuilt Rochester
4-barrel carburetor, new fuel pump, new spark plugs, and a new correct Exhaust system. The engine compartment
has been recently detailed, and it shows incredibly well for a car that has
been driven regularly. Someone spent a lot of time and effort dressing it
Inside, you'll find the SS-specific bucket seats with engine-turned console
and dash. On this car, the interior is a combination of original and
restored pieces, including new carpets and seats. The polished trim is
still sharp and blemish-free and the original door panels are outstanding.
New door sill plates were installed at the same time as the new carpets.
The factory AM/FM radio works perfectly, as does the power top.
Trailer queens certainly have their place, but the vast majority of the
hobby is made up of super nice cars just like this '64 SS. You can drive
them, show them, tinker with them, and that's exactly what this hobby is
all about. Put this '64 SS convertible in your garage and enjoy years of
care-free top-down cruising for a fraction of the price of a trailer queen
you can only wistfully admire from afar.
