Awesome 1964 Corvette Convertible with 327 cu in/365 hp and Factory 4 Speed Transmission
This cool 1964 Corvette was built at the St Louis factory in May of 1964. It was originally shipped with Black and
Pale Silver interior (491AE) and an exterior color of Satin Silver (940AA). It came with a 327 cu 365 HP engine and
4 speed transmission.
The car underwent its 1st restoration (about 20 years ago) the exterior color was changed from Satin Silver to Red.
The interior was also changed from Black and Pale Silver to all Black and included new carpet, door panels and seat
covers. Since the 1st restoration the driver's side seat cover, drivers side carpet and dash pad is showing some
wear and is all that is needed to bring the interior back to perfect condition. The interior used in the 1st
restoration is a high quality original style that is black and the carpets are 80/20 loop pile.
The car has recently been freshened (about 2 years ago) and received lots of new parts and
trim, including a new White convertible top, new lining to the Hardtop, complete under the hood restoration, new
tires, new carburetor and a fresh beautiful two stage base coat/clear coat Red paint job. With the exceptions
mentioned above, the interior is an original type interior, it has some minor wear and tear but with
the exceptions noted, the interior is in very good shape.
The motor block in the car is not the correct numbers matching block. the original block spun a main bearing and it
ruined the factory block, it was replaced with a 1968 vintage 327/300 hp corvette block. (block # 3782870 HE) The
cars original 461 double hump fuel heads (3782461), aluminum (Winters) intake (3849804), new original type Holly
Carburetor and the original tach drive distributor are all on the car.
The M21 Muncie 4 Speed transmission is original to the car. It shifts and runs smoothly with no noise of any kind.
The shifter is a Hurst replacement shifter and is smooth shifting.
The car is equipped with the original exhaust manifolds and side pipes that sound very cool when you rumble down
This car runs very strong but drives and handles great, the cooling system keeps the car at the correct temperature
and the oil pressure is great.
This car has been totally restored from ground up since its birth with just about everything on the car new or
refurbished. The car is sitting on a perfect set of 15” Kelsey Hayes aluminum wheels with real knock offs (the
brass dead blow hammer is included with the car). The tires are new Firestone with the narrow style white walls
