1964 Corvette Guide: History, Performance, Specs & More

The drivetrain choices remained pretty much the same as they had in 1963: four 327 cubic inch diameter V-8 engines were mated to either a three-speed, a four speed manual transmission or the Powerglide automatic transmission. Of these engines, the two least-powerful engines returned with 250 and 300 horsepower at a 10.5:1 compression ratio. The high-performance engines, however, did receive some noteworthy upgrades. To start, the carbureted engine was improved upon with the introduction of a Holley carburetor instead of the original base engine’s Carter unit. The engine produced 365 horsepower.
