Hello ... need to learn about a 64 SS Column Shift

Today picked up a 64 SS Impalla "rough" car with what appears to be original column shift car (3 spd or possibly an auto that someone added pedals to). It appears unique to me as it has a console with no past shifter provisions. It was an a/c car. Haven't check it out real good yet but bought it to part some trim, buckets, console, fender, door etc. "Thats about all valuable as the car is missing engine tranny etc and has lost of rust elsewhere".

I am typically a chevelle guy but noted the odd console set up and felt it might be worth something .....!

If anyone can help me with "rarity" or production of such and possible value comments I would really appreciate it.

Feel free to email me at [email protected] or call at 478 308 0044.

Thanks,
STeve

The standard Impala SS model came with a manual shift 3 speed on the column "3 on the tree". It came with a center console with a block off plate.
ALL 64 Impala SS models had bucket seats and a console and NONE had an automatic on the steering column.
Only the basic 3 speed was on the column, the PG automatic and 4 speed were floor shift.
Your car is unusual since most cars got the auto or 4 speed upgrade. So it is somewhat "rare".
But rare does not always equate to desireable. The "shifter delete" center consoles come up from time to time and it does not seem like there is too much demand. Most peole who want to resore a correct column shifter already have the correct console and the majority will swap to a floor shift 4 speed or automatic.
