1964 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1964 was the second year of the second generation C2 corvette (1963 - 1967).
For 1964, Corvette coupes lost the split rear window. The fake hood grills were also removed, but the hood indentations where the grills were mounted remained. The C-pillar roof vents now had grills.
The rocker panel trim piece had fewer ribs and was emphasized with black paint. The center section of the instrument gauges was now black. The fuel cap emblem was different for 1964.
The two lower compression 327 engines were rated the same as last year, with 250 and 300 horsepower. The two higher compression engines gained some power and were rated at 365 hp for the 4bbl carburetor version, and 375 for the fuel injected engine.
1964 Corvette Key Differences
A 1964 Corvette can be identified by the distinct hood with two large indentations at the front which was exclusive to this year. Fake fender louvers with two horizontal indentations were used only on 1963 and 1964 Corvettes. The horizontal thin-barred chrome grill was also only used for 1963 and 1964.
Vettes from '63 to '67 had the same basic body design other than the split window of the '63. Changes in trim, side louvers, hoods, and engines can be used to tell the different years apart.
