[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

Caveat: Option quantities/prices vary from resource to resource. These quantities (and prices in most cases) were taken from year-specific 'Accumulative Production/Final Model Year Reports' from Chevrolet and  'Options And Accessories When Installed By Chevrolet' price sheets and do not normally include quantities/prices from GM of Canada unless otherwise noted.

It is important to note the items listed and the quantity represent the item individually when ordered as an option and not when they may have come as standard equipment or in a convenience or appearance group on certain models. All costs listed are 1963/64 dollars. Dealers may have charged more (or less) for some options depending on the time of year as costs did fluctuate and some option costs varied depending on the series/model being installed on. Those with a noted number are some examples of dealer invoices or window stickers with varying costs.

Line items with orange bar are items shown on some dealer new car records but not shown as options reported by GM.

Series/model base prices may differ due to price changes. Initial prices listed are from GM Heritage Restoration kit except where noted.

(1) Not listed on Chevelle Options Final Report

(2) Tailfins & Bowties figures indicate that there were 23,558 convertibles sold in 1964 and reports 19,258 convertibles were sold with optional color manual (C05) or optional electric folding top (C06). This leaves 4,300 convertibles unaccounted for. It is known from ECL codes that 8,363 black manual tops were ordered and 1,480 beige manual tops were ordered for a total of 9,843 optional manual tops.

It has been postulated the 4,300 convertible tops not accounted for above as options would have been the standard white manual top since that was not considered an option and did not have an ECL code.

If anyone has an original window sticker, showing a manual white convertible top with an ECL code (such as AA, AB, etc.) I'd like to hear from you.

* The costs listed come from numerous resources; GM Heritage Restoration Kits, actual dealer invoices (GM to dealer cost), car invoices (dealer to buyer), and valid window stickers.  Costs in the GM Heritage Restoration Kits are generally done very early in the model year and are subject to change.  If you have verified proof of an option with a different cost than is shown, please don't hesitate to contact me via my contact page.
