1964 Chevrolet Impala CoupeWith design inspiration reaching back to the popularity of the Bel Air, and effect of the Federal Highway act of 1956, Chevrolets impulse toward the Impala was based on the need to reach the market segment calling for greater luxury, and greater power to better reach the far-off destinations which were now becoming accessible.
This remarkable and highly original 1964 Chevrolet Impala 409 4-speed sport coupe is superbly finished in Ermine White with black interior, and runs and drives exceptionally well. This extremely rare and well preserved Impala is color and trim code correct, features very rare and highly collectible true numbers matching 409cid 400hp engine, and factory 4-speed manual transmission.
While there were a seemingly abundant 889,600 Impalas of various stripes produced for 1964, and 185,325 Super Sport cars, there were a mere 8,684 which left the factory with some variation of the 409 under the hood. While the vast majority of those 409s produced were the 340 horse cars, very few of those eight-thousand were equipped with the potent 400 horse engine.
There are many cars which excite collectors, many which are rare and justifiably expensive, but there are few which are as truly rare, valuable, and extremely collectible as is this exceptional 73K original mile, highly original, code correct and numbers matching 1964 Chevrolet Impala 409cid 400hp factory 4-speed sport coupe!
