Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1964 Chevrolet Impala 409/425hp Convertible
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

1964 Chevrolet Impala 409/425hp Dual Quad V8-4spd Convertible – One of the best!

“THE HOLY GRAIL”


This car inspired the song “409” by the Beach Boys! “She’s real fine my 409…..”


**VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW TO UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS CAR IS**

THIS CAR WAS DOCUMENTED ON 06-30-2020 BY 1958-1964 CHEVROLET IMPALA EXPERT VERNE FRANTZ OF JV ENGINEERING. “I WOULD RATE THE CORRECTNESS AND CONDITION OF THIS CAR AS A 9+ AND RATE IT AS ONE OF THE TOP FIVE RESTORED AND AUTHENTIC CARS I HAVE EVER DOCUMENTED” – Verne Frantz


**UNFORTUNATELY LIKE MOST OF MUSCLE CARS FROM THE 60’S AND 70’S IMPALA 409’S ARE FAKED. MATTER OF FACT MOST 409 IMPALAS AREN’T REAL.**


THE LAST OWNER PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 1965 AND SOLD IT TO MS CLASSIC CARS IN 2020. HE OWNED THIS CAR FOR THE LAST 55 YEARS! A NOTARIZED LETTER FROM HIM THAT TELLS THE STORY OF THE CAR IS INCLUDED. THE ORIGINAL TITLE FROM 1969 WAS SIGNED OVER TO MS CLASSIC CARS AND WILL BE REASSIGNED TO THE NEW THIRD OWNER.


THIS CAR IS ONE OF ONLY 1,997 1964 CHEVROLET IMPALAS PRODUCED WITH THE 409/425HP DUAL QUAD V8 OPTION – RPO L-80. IT’S ONE OF VERY FEW LEFT TO EXIST WITH ITS ORIGINAL MATCHING NUMBERS ENGINE. THIS ENGINE WAS DYNO TESTED RECENTLY WITH THE CURRENT DUAL CARBURETORS AND IT MADE 432HP @ 5700 RPM. NOT ONLY WAS IT BORN A 409/425HP BUT IT LEFT THE FACTORY AS A CONVERTIBLE WITH A BLACK EXTERIOR, WHITE TOP, BLACK INTERIOR, 4-SPEED TRANSMISSION AND A 4:11 REAR END. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE IMPALA!


THIS CAR RETAINS THE ORIGINAL VIN TAG, TRIM TAG, COLOR COMBINATION, ALL OF ITS MAJOR SHEETMETAL, ENGINE AND REAR END.


THIS CAR WAS RESTORED BY WELL-KNOWN SHOW CARS AUTOMOTIVE, INC LOCATED IN NEW ULM, MN. NOT ONLY DO THEY SPECIALIZE IN QUALITY REPRODUCTION OF 348-409 CHEVY PARTS FOR 1958-1964 PASSENGER CARS BUT THEY WERE THE RIDLER AWARD WINNER FOR 2020! YES, THE COMPANY THAT RESTORED THIS 1964 IMPALA WON THE PRESTIGIOUS RIDLER AWARD FOR 2020 WITH A BLACK 1963 CHEVY 2-DOOR STATION WAGON. THIS WAS THE FIRST BLACK VEHICLE TO WIN THE RIDLER AWARD. BRAD, BRADY AND CORY RANWEILER DO AMAZING WORK!


THIS VEHICLE IS A MULTIPLE AWARD WINNER INCLUDING A SIX TIME CHEVY VETTEFEST “GOLD SPINNER CONCOURSE”, TWO TIME LATE GREAT CHEVY “AWARD OF EXCELLENCE” AND “SHOWCASE” AND MUSCLE CAR AND CORVETTE NATIONALS “CONCOURS GOLD”. IT SCORED 965,968, 969,983, 988 AND 994 OF A POSSIBLE 1000 POINTS AT ALL THE SHOWS.


THIS CAR IS THE ONLY ONE LIKE IT KNOWN TO EXIST IN THE WORLD. IT’S HIGHLY COLLECTABLE AND TRULY PRICELESS. IN 1964, THIS CAR WAS AHEAD OF IT’S TIME WITH 425 HORSEPOWER!


This unbelievable 1964 Chevrolet Impala 409/425hp Dual Quad V8 4-spd Convertible is truly one of the best known examples to exist. It has been fully documented by 1958-1964 Chevrolet Impala expert Verne Frantz of JV Engineering. The documented letter is included. This car was owned by the last owner since 1965. A notarized letter from this owner and the original title from 1969 are included. This car retains the original VIN tag, trim tag, major sheet metal, black with black color combination, 409/425hp Dual Quad V8 engine and 4:11 rear end. It was restored by well-known Show Car Automotive who won the Ridler Award in 2020. This car has won many significant awards including a six time Chevy Vettefest “Gold Spinner Concourse”, two time Late Great Chevy “Award of Excellence” and “Showcase” and Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals “Concours Gold”. This is the “Holy Grail”!
As the VIN number indicates this car was built as a 1964 Chevrolet Impala 8-cyclinder Convertible in Janesville, WI. The fisher body was assembled on or about May 11th. It was final assembled on or about May 12th, 1964. As the trim tag indicates it was ordered in color (RPO 900) Tuxedo Black and trim (RPO 814-1) Black vinyl with white convertible top. It was ordered as a non SS model with a 409/425hp Dual Quad V8, 4-speed and 4:11 rear end. This was definitely a special order based on the options. This car was originally sold new at Bill Jacobs Chevrolet located in Juliet, IL. It was purchased by the second owner named Bob Gamboa in 1965 as indicated in the notarized letter that is included. The story of how Bob found the car is described in the letter. This car spent the last 55 years with Bob until now.

In 1992, Bob decided to have the car professionally restored. The car only had mileage in the 40’s when the restoration started. He sent the car to well-known Show Car Automotive because they had a great reputation for Impalas and do amazing black paint jobs. They still specialize in quality reproduction of 348-409 Chevrolet parts for 1958-1964 passenger cars. They also still do amazing black paint jobs. Matter of fact, they just won the Ridler Award for 2020 with a black 1963 Chevrolet 2-door Station Wagon. This was the first black car to ever win the Ridler Award. Brad, Brady and Cory Ranweiler do excellent work. During the restoration they used as many of the original parts as they could to keep the authenticity. The restoration was completed in 1995. Hundreds of receipts are included that were put in plastic sleeves in date order along with a new binder. When the car was completed Bob started showing the car at major shows. It was trailered to the shows from 1997 to 2010. It won many awards which are listed in detail below. Since the restoration was completed the car only accumulated 23 miles and it was stored in a Car Capsule air bubble. After 55 years of ownership Bob decided to sell the car. MS CLASSIC CARS purchased the car in March of 2020 and listed it for the first time in July of 2020.

The exterior of this car is car is absolutely beautiful in every sense of the word. Sometimes classic cars just do the talking and this is one of those cars. The 1964 Impala is popular among people because of its gorgeous styling. When you add a convertible top it just puts the icing on the cake. This car retains most of its original sheet metal and is extremely straight. Many Impalas don’t have straight bodies because of the amount of sheet metal. The gaps in the body are great. The hood, doors and deck lid function beautifully. The body was painted in its original color of Tuxedo Black which dresses this car perfectly. The paint has recently been cut and buffed to a show quality shine. The paint only has a few tiny imperfections with the largest one being a spot on the hood that is the size of a pencil eraser. It’s hard to imagine this paint job is almost 25 years old. It goes to show the quality work that Show Cars Automotive does. The car sports a white power convertible top which breaks up the black exterior and interior. The white top also matches the white body side moldings and white wall tires. The car was born with a white top as indicated above. The original black convertible top boot fits like a glove and is included. All of the glass is original and in very nice condition. The front windshield does show some small chips and little scratches as expected with after 56 years. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the window trim, wiper arms, chrome trim, door handles, bumpers, antenna, emblems, etc. The top of the original front grill was painted black to hide some light scratches. The car sits on steel wheels with chrome hub caps. The wheels have been wrapped with new BF Goodrich Silvertown 8.00-14 ply white wall tires that were added by MS CLASSIC CARS. This is one good looking classic!

The interior of this car is also beautiful in every sense of the word. The interior is actually very spacious and comfortable. Although the interior did have some pieces restored a lot of pieces are original. Remember this car only had mileage in the 40’s prior to the restoration. Bob remembered some of the original pieces included the gauges, steering wheel, door panels and back seat but can’t be exact based on the timeframe of when it was restored. The power convertible top works very smoothly. The sun visors, rear view mirror, dash, dash hardware, gauges, steering wheel, door panels, door hardware, seats, shifter and carpeting is very nice. Everything in the interior is in working order such as the lights, gauges, clock, radio, heating system, horn etc. Even the cold engine light works! It has the correct style rubber floor mats. The trunk compartment looks stunning. It was completely restored. It was finished in the correct style trunk splatter paint and the correct style trunk mat. It’s equipped with a full size matching spare and jack tools.

The engine compartment is of this car is highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. The firewall, inner fenders and radiator support were finished in black. The car is powered by the original matching numbers 409/425hp Dual Quad V8 engine. The engine pad numbers are as follows: J281151 T0408 QB. The first set of numbers match this car’s last six digits of the VIN number. As quoted from Impala expert Verne Frantz of JV Engineering, “this engine was casted on February 22nd, 1964 and the final assembly was on April 8th, 1964. All the component dates are typical of production and the block stamp is the original with correct broach marks indicating this is the original engine installed in this car when it was built at Janesville.” The engine was completely rebuilt during the restoration by Protech Engines located in Mokena, IL. All of the engine rebuilt receipts are included and indicate the engine numbers on the receipts. The engine has the original correct 583 heads. The intake casting number is #3814881. It still retains the original Carter AFB dual carburetors with the original tags that are dated January 1964. Verne Frantz had looked at this car over 20 years ago at a car show and spoke to Bob about it as indicated in the notarized letter that Bob provided. Even back then, Verne couldn’t believe the car still retains its original carburetors with tags. MS CLASSIC CARS removed the engine and sent it to well-known Nat’s Engine located in Swansea, MA for an engine refresh. The engine has the correct parts such as the camshaft. MS CLASSIC CARS also sent the carburetors out them professionally restored. The engine was then dyno tested with the carburetors at Nat’s Engine on 05-20-2020. It dyno tested at 432hp @5700 RPM with 434 ft lbs @ 4400 RPM. The dyno sheet is included. This engine starts very easily and runs beautiful. The engine sounds great out the factory manifolds and dual exhaust system. The engine is coupled to a 1964 Muncie wide ratio transmission. The casting number is #3851325. As quoted by Impala expert Verne Frantz, “at some point in the first 18 months of this car’s life, the original close ratio Muncie 4-speed transmission was replaced with a 1964 Muncie wide ratio transmission, for reasons unknown. The power is transferred the rebuilt rear end. As quoted by Impala expert Verne Frantz, “the rear axle housing was cast by Detroit Gear and Axle on January 27th, 1964 and assembled on February 20th, 1964. It is coded as a 4.11 Positraction. Dates are typical of production and the rear is deemed to be the original.”

The undercarriage of this car is also highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. This undercarriage is nice enough to display with mirrors at a car show. The entire underside was finished in the correct red oxide color. All of the steering, suspension and braking components were restored or replaced.

 This authentic 1964 Chevrolet Impala 409/425hp Dual Quad V8 4-spd Convertible is truly one of the best. This is a golden opportunity to purchase a car that doesn’t exist anywhere else but right here, right now.

“As my website indicates I’ve collected and sold hundreds of beautiful classic vehicles over the years.  I’m proud to say MS CLASSIC CARS holds over 40 world record sale prices.  We’ve also sold many classic vehicles in the six figure plus price range.  The point being is that I’m a good judge of character when it comes time to describe a classic vehicle.  MS CLASSIC CARS collect beautiful classic vehicles that we service and detail.  We document this work with an invoice that is pictured in the photos.  The vehicle you’re about to witness is something I’m proud of.  If you’ve been searching for something like this vehicle I would suggest moving forward with investigating it further.  Please give me a phone call and I’ll go over the entire vehicle with you over the phone.  I will tell you everything I know about it.  I’m the owner and can make all the decisions regarding the price, etc.  There will be no pressure.   My goal is to make sure the vehicle is the right fit for you.  If you decide to purchase it I’ll make the transaction transparent and simple.  I’ll assist you in the financing if necessary.  I’ll also assist you with the shipping.  It’s that easy.  MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

Marc Schiliro – The Owner. 





Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
