The 1964 Chevy truck came with a redesigned cab featuring a dashboard designed to reduce glare. The windshield of the truck was flatter than the previous years and the front end had some changes as well. One change was the grill. On the 63 the word Chevrolet was embossed across the bottom, but on the 64 Chevy truck it was embossed across the top. The grill had a number of cross bars creating a screen like look and the headlights were now surrounded by rectangle bezels instead of round. The body of the truck remained much the same as the previous 3 years.
This 1964 Chevy truck for sale in Atlanta, Georgia has been nicely renovated. The seller called it a show truck and it’s certainly nice enough to be one. The selling price of $18,000 is also high enough to be show truck. I’m not sure I could ever own a show vehicle of any kind because I would just want to drive it around everyday, which would eventually destroy it’s show quality. I just can’t stand to leave a fine automobile sitting in a garage.
As this photo shows the interior has been nicely redone. I’m particular fond of the two tone door panels. You can also see the lip across the top of the dash that was created to reduce glare. Whether it actually worked or not I have not idea. I once saw a car commercial from the 60s that claim the slightly cushioned dash board was a big advancement in crash safety. I imagine peoples faces disagreed. The full bench seat does remind me of my grandpa’s old trucks. Whatever happened to the single bench seat. It made things more intimate. No pesky console or drink holders to get in the way.
There was no information on the engine in this 64 Chevy truck but as you can see, it looks quite nice. It’s obviously been kept clean and the custom green paint really pops! And that’s what matters right? An engine that pops! I guess that’s another reason why I could never own a show truck. Keeping an engine this clean and caring about some custom colors is not something I could ever get that passionate about. Now if it makes a great sound and has enough power to push me back in my seat a little…..well, that’s more my style.
