That year, 8,404 cars were produced in the Corvette coupe model, while 13,925 were produced in the convertible version. Only 711 in the 3-speed. 1964 Chevrolet Corvette History The Chevrolet Corvette was already an incredibly popular car by 1963. With the introduction of the Corvette Sting Ray, the company experienced huge levels of success and popularity. When it came to designing its next model, GM executives knew that they would need to change little from its previous popular model but continue to refine the previous model to maintain success. There were quite a few functional changes as well as minor cosmetic upgrades, but it was mostly kept the same to keep the success of the 1963 model going. One interesting fact is that starting with the 1964 model year through 1967, Dow-Smith in Iona, Michigan supplied some of the bodies of the Corvettes. This was a division of the A.0. Smith Company. Cosmetic Changes The most notable styling change to 1964, as opposed to the 63 split rear window model, was the removal and replacement of the split window. It was instead replaced by a single pane of glass for the rear window. Another change was that the 1964 models removed the faux hood vent that was on the 1963 model. An interesting choice for this was although they removed the vents, the recessed areas where they previously were remained on the 1964 model. This gave the 1964 model’s hood a very distinct and unique look. Also, the coupe’s rear pillar panels were functional on the driver’s side. Previously, they were just cosmetic. This allowed the venting of the interior in the coupe models. Another cosmetic refinement is the car’s rocker panel trim. In the previous model, a collection of ribs ran along the sides of the panel. In the 1964 model, a black divider that ran down the panel replaced this. Wheel covers were also made in a more simple design. The fuel filler deck emblem was also redesigned to feature circles around its crossed-flags symbol. Lastly, Corvette replaced the 1963’s steering wheel with a faux wood-grain one that looked like walnut. They chromed the inside door knobs, as well. Performance Changes Critics often noted that the 1963 model of the Corvette had high interior noise levels, so Corvette added insulation to the interior. The body and transmission mounts were also changed to lower the amount of noise generated. Extra bushings were installed to lower noise from shift linkage as well as a new boot around the shift lever mechanism. The drivetrain remained the same as in 1963. The four 327 cubic inch diameter V-8 engine is connected to either a 3-speed or 4-speed transmission, or the Powerglide automatic transmission. Between all of the engine variations, the two less-powerful engines had 250 and 300hp at a 10:5:1 compression ratio. However, the higher-power engines did receive some upgrades. The carbureted engine included a Holley carburetor instead of the Carter unit that the 1963 model Detail cleaning has been done Pre-i
