This 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible is a real deal Super Sport that produces plenty of power from its 409 V8. 1964 marked the first very time that the Impala SS was considered its own sub-series (as opposed to an option package) for the iconic Chevrolet model.

The SS featured interiors complete with leather grained vinyl, front bucket seats, a .....
center console with console-mounted shifter, and distinctive SS trim throughout. From the outside, there was no mistaking an Impala Super Sport since they were trimmed with special SS-only silver ""swirl-pattern"" anodized inserts on the decklid, along with various Super Sport specific trim on the quarters and decklid. The basic SS Impalas were priced with the basic Inline 6 Cylinder engines however Chevy offered an array of larger, more powerful V8s including the iconic 409 which was of course the title of the famous Beach Boys track off their ""Surfin' Safari"" album. Interestingly, the '64 Impala continued its prominence in pop culture well beyond the hot rod era of the 60s and 70s with many famous rappers in the 90s and beyond, including including Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, rapping about ""rollin' in 6-4s"" in reference to the iconic lowriding 1964 Impalas.
