Ermine White w/Black interior, 327/375hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
If there ever was a Corvette that didn’t get the respect it deserved, it would likely be the ’64. This mid-year might be called the “Rodney Dangerfield” of Corvettes. After the hoopla surrounding the introduction of the all-new second generation cars introduced as a ’63, many felt they were going to be hard to top. And being that the instantly legendary Split Window Coupe was only offered for that one year, they were right! At least, initially.
The ’64’s were outwardly (and inwardly) very similar to the ’63’s, with some notable exceptions. Gone were the simulated hood vents, but the indentations remained. And of course, that beautiful split down the rear window was gone in ’64, replaced with a nice one piece unit that you could finally see clearly out of! On the inside, the seats were revised with a more “square” seatback for more support. And the gauges were now all Black, with “ribbed” faces. The optional N34 “wood grained” plastic steering wheel became standard in ’64. Under the hood, things were pretty much the same as the previous years engine offerings. With the addition of MORE HORSEPOWER! The two high-performance engines (the L76 and L84) were up 25hp & 15hp respectively from ’63! And the knock-off aluminum wheels were finally available. And they didn’t leak!
So that was pretty much the difference between the ’63 and ’64. But because you couldn’t get the split window from the previous year or disc brakes from the following year, the ’64 just kinda got ignored. But decades later, the ’64 is starting to be recognized for the excellent Corvette it was . . . and still is! And the best part is it’s the best bargain in a mid-year that you can get! For now , , ,
Over the decades, we’ve had some pretty amazing mid-years come through our doors. In every configuration, Coupe, Convertible, big block, small block etc. Some of them just do it for you. And to us, this ’64 is one of them. The very correct, meticulous restoration speaks for itself! From its chassis to its optional hard top, this is a ’64 that will make you stop and want a closer look. It’s optioned with the top dog Fuelie engine, 4-spd. transmission, am/fm radio, power brakes, power windows, knock-off wheels wrapped in Whitewall tires and both hard and soft tops. It’s also a multiple N.C.R.S. Top Flight, Duntov Mark of Excellence and Bloomington Gold Award winner!!
