The 1964 Chevy Corvette was greeted with as much enthusiasm as its 1963 counterpart had been the year before. With the monumental success that Chevrolet had experienced after the introduction of its second-generation Corvette Sting Ray, GM executives understood that the C2s sophomore year would require little more than continued refinement to the already intensely popular sports car to maintain its success. Most of the styling refinements that were made to the exterior of the 1964 model were subtle. The most notable change involved the replacement of the rear split-window that had been introduced in 1963. The split-window was abandoned completely by General Motors in 1964, replaced instead by a rear window that was constructed of a single piece of glass.

This beautiful 327 car is highly original and looks great from all angles. Its been repainted once in the correct Sebring Silver paint. It has a great stance, with excellent panel fit, chrome and trim. Youll see the correct and distinctive 64 hood, without the faux hood vents, but still showing the recesses. Also new for 64 are rear pillar vents on the drivers side, aiding in cockpit ventilation. The driver will enjoy a lovely black interior, woodgrain steering wheel, and factory air-conditioning. Motor Trend Magazine tested a four-speed 327 coupe with the 4.11:1 rear axle ratio on this car and the results were impressive. The engine bay is clean and very correct, and youll love showing off both the performance and the good looks of this desirable C-2 Corvette. Supplied with plenty of documentation, our consignor reports that the mileage shown is accurate at 69,000 miles from new.
With limited and careful ownership from new, this clean Arizona car stands ready for enjoyment of many miles of open road.
