1st Generation: 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS Convertible
In 1964 the Malibu SS was also offered as both a coupe and a convertible, powered by a 300-horsepower version of Chevy’s 327-cubic-inch small-block V8 engine. For 1965, horsepower increased to 350 for the 327 in the Malibu SS. The Malibu SS Z16 package was also offered, for the coupe only, with the first big-block engine for Malibu: a 375-horsepower 396 cubic-inch V8. The Malibu SS was short-lived when it was replaced by the Chevelle SS396 for the 1966 model year.
