Found a 63 Impala 4 door with the straight 6 in it. Will the frame from the 63 work on a 64 Impala SS? Will I have to make any modifications? Will a V8 engine mount right where the straight six was? Thanks for any info.

frames are the same. but might have a different transmission linkage mount but those are easy to change
if you are putting the 63 frame under a 64 SS you dont need any transmission linkage mount do to being a floor mount on your 64 SS

Thanks for all the help. One more question. Yes mine is 4 speed. So I can take the linkage off the old frame and add it to the 63 frame? Is it welded?

Your right I have seen a few 3 on the tree with delete console shifter but the majority of SS were floor mounted shifters. In 1964 the Impala SS became its own line, compared to being a package in the past. More than 185,000 Impala SS’s were sold. The regular Impala sold over 890,000,

The 1964 Chevrolet Impala added a model to the line as the Super Sport became a distinct series in '64, in either convertible or hardtop coupe form. Super Sports held a pleated vinyl interior with front bucket seats, and a console with floor gearshift (when equipped with a four-speed or Powerglide). Swirl-pattern silver anodized material decorated the rear cove outline moldings and wider upper body trim strips of SS models.

Super Sports might have either a six-cylinder or V-8 engine -- though few of the former were sold. A tachometer and sports steering wheel could be added to the package. Quick-ratio power steering was available, along with a seven-position Comfortilt column.

Updated styling featured squarer corners along with a new full-width sculptured grille. Impalas again had triple taillights on each side, plus plenty of brightwork. As usual, they were the top sellers by far, with 889,600 built (including an impressive 185,523 Super Sports).
