The wildly-styled second generation Chevrolet Impala gave way to the more smooth and boxy third-generation in 1961. The elegantly rounded and soft shape of 1964 was the final year before the fourth-generation took on a more ‘muscle car’ approach in 1965.

Distinguishing itself visually, the 1964 Impala wore far less chrome than the ’63 model, with the signature tail light valence colour coded to the body and framed by the ‘upside down U’ aluminium strip. The front end was also subtly more flat, though rooflines were largely carried over.

Engine options from factory included a 230ci inline-six; and 283, 327, 348, and 409 V8s. The 409 returning to the top-dog position after the 427 available in 1963 was removed from the lineup.

A three-speed manual or a four-speed Powerglide were the sole transmission offerings.

This 1964 Impala is reportedly been with one family since it was purchased new in Cleveland Ohio, and shipped to the ACT that same year.

The car was purportedly fully restored to near new condition around 2015, and is fitted with the 283 V8 and Powerglide transmission.

In photos, the car is beautifully presented, and for someone after an original 60s cruiser, this Impala could be well worth looking at.

The car is listed for $42,000 and is based in the ACT, you can check out the full listing here!
