Great pix of the '64 Impala SS showing 327 V8 badging, denoting a 327 cube engine. Back then, two 327's were available in the full size Chevy...250 or 300 HP.

I know this well as I was trying to persuade my dad.....fruitlessly as it turned out ..... to order our family '64 Impala wagon with the 300 HP - 327 4 barrel, dual exhaust engine. I really wanted dad to get the 409 cube- 340 HP V8 engine...but I knew that was fantasy world on my part. I was 13/14 years old then.

Our wagon had the 283 V8- 2 barrel...195 HP which wasn't bad and we used it to tow the family RV trailer all the way down to Chicago...where we visited for Easter week in family friends' place in Hammond, Indiana.

I remember on the way down, somewhere in northern Minnesota a guy passed us in a snowstorm...driving a Studebaker Avanti.

Those '64 Chevies were great cars, real workhorses. Again great pix of that '64 Impala SS. Brought back memories.

And Chicago that Easter week was wonderful. Lots of tales and experiences...some deal with GTO's, 409 Impalas...etc... that are indelible in memory.
Not a great photo but the owner of the car had character! Taken with a DA 16-45 and a K10D.

I think it was a Nissan Sylvia.

Hey Les, I'm glad to catalyze such a pleasant memory. Stay safe, my friend.

Interesting. I've never seen a Silvia, a model that never made it to these shores.
