Rock Out in Your Vintage Convertible
In 1964, the top of the line Chevy Chevelle debuted its high-end nameplate, the Chevy Malibu. This hot car was available in a two-door convertible with all the bells and whistles that a 1960’s convertible could hold. In the 1960s, this was one hot car to cruise down the streets. If you were cruising in a convertible, you had to listen to music on your favorite AM radio station. If you drove a 1967 convertible, you could choose an 8-track tape option. Now, if you get to drive one of these beauties, you have more music options, so when you are cruising down the street in your restored Malibu, you can listen to this ultimate 1960s playlist:
From 1964, these classic tunes will get heads turning and toes tapping. Your playlist should include these classics that define the beachside lifestyle that the Malibu defined:
The Chevelle is a classic car from the Chevrolet line-up that the brand manufactured from 1964 to 1977. Through three generations, this popular model evolved and changed, while also offering buyers a range of body styles and trim levels like the Super Sport, Laguna, El Camino, and Malibu. Chevelle turned out to be one of the most successful nameplates for Chevy, in spite of the fact that it was produced for just a decade and a half.
The Chevrolet Chevelle that we have all come to know and love was first introduced for the 1964 model year. General Motors put a lot of stock in the Chevelle lineup and there were Chevelles offered in many different body styles including a four-door sedan, a two-door coupe, a convertible and even a four-door station wagon.
However, 1964 was a time when the true muscle car era was starting to take shape. So Chevrolet wanted to have a player within the Chevelle line, and to this end they included the Chevelle Malibu SS or super sport package.
The decade of the 1960s was one of the most memorable ones on a number of different levels. There was a great deal of societal change underway with the civil rights movement going forward, and of course much of the nation was polarized over the Vietnam War. Rock and roll music was reaching its full stride and this was the soundtrack that was always present during this interesting period.
