1964 Chevrolet Chevelle "Malibu" Convertible - Custom.

1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible - Custom.

In the Pantheon of American Muscle Cars, the Chevelle has staked a rock-solid position. When it first rolled off the production lines in 1964 you get it with 120hp V6 or, either a 283- or 327- V8, that with the SS set-up would produce 300 bhp. Chevrolet would continue to produce the Chevelle until 1977, during which time it would get ever-increasing boosts of horsepower during the muscle-car salad days of the late sixties, and reach the zenith of it's performance in 1970 when it rolled off the line with 454 cubic-inches capable of turning out 450 horsepower. As with all muscle cars, the early '70's saw a continued roll-back on power thanks to higher fuel and insurance prices, as well as the introduction of smog equipment. When the Chevelle badge was retired in 1977 the basic chassis/body style carried on under the Malibu name--de-tuned and de-fanged.

During its run the Chevelle came in nearly every configuration possible; 2-door, 4-door, convertible, hard-top, and station-wagon. Engine option over the years ranged from the 195hp 283ci to the fire-breathing 454 which turned out the kind of power that made insurance adjusters tremble in their loafers. Yenko even put his renowned signature on the '69 models by equipping them with the same 427 motors he was puting in Camaros prior to the introduction of the 454. A sub-series of the Chevelle line was the "Malibu", which came with the top triim package. And there was the "SS" badge that meant you had opted for the top horsepower and performance available. The Chevelle SS was Chevrolets entry into the mid-sized muscle car battle and was meant to compete with the comparably sized Ford Fairlane.
