Why yes, it HAS been that long. Here's a small selection of what your money could buy you back when Cleveland won its last sports championship, in an era before man walked on the moon.
The DB5 is one of, if not the most famous James Bond car of all time.
About a dozen DB5s were converted to shooting brakes by coachbuilder Harold Radford.
1964 marked the first year of production for the Chevelle, which was built to compete with the Ford Fairlane.
A two-door station wagon Chevelle was available early on, but sadly, I couldn't find a good picture of one.
The Corvair was one of Chevrolet's "thrift" cars, built for those looking for cheap wheels.
Its independent suspension used coil springs at all four corners, similar to some European cars of that era.
The Corvette doesn't need any introduction -- it's the damn Corvette, for crying out loud.
By 1964, the Corvette was already in its second generation, bringing with it the Sting Ray badge that reappeared on the latest generation.
Ferrari built only a few examples of the 250 GTO so that it could be used in racing, a process called homologation.
These days, if you want a 250 GTO of your own, expect to pay tens of millions of dollars for the honor.
1964 marked the last year of the Galaxie's second generation.
The exterior was tweaked for 1964, so that it could perform better in Nascar races.
Again, like the Corvette, there's no need to introduce the Mustang.
Much of the car's underpinnings came from Ford's Falcon and Fairlane vehicles.
The Jaguar E-Type might be one of the most beautiful cars ever built.
Jaguar capitalized on the respect for its E-Type when it launched the F-Type sports car in the 2010s.
The Panhard 24 is a French car, considered the brand's swan song before it started focusing on military vehicles.
If you think it looks a bit like a Citroën, you'd be right -- Citroën had a decently large holding in Panhard's autos enterprise.
1964 also marked the first year of the Plymouth Barracuda, itself based on the Valiant.
The first-generation 'Cuda was only available as a fastback coupe, but convertible and notchback variants appeared in its second generation.
1964 was the end of the Bonneville's third generation.
During this time, it remained Pontiac's most expensive and most luxurious vehicle.
The GTO is yet another car on this list that's earned its spot in the Sports Car Hall of Fame, a thing that I just made up.
The Pontiac GTO was originally a hopped-up options package for the Pontiac Tempest.
The ubiquitous rear-engined sports car made its debut in 1964, as the follow up to the also-lauded 356.
This one just squeaked its way onto the list, having started production in September 1964, just ahead of the Cleveland Browns' victory in December.
While you might be able to find a new Studebaker Avanti in 1964, it would be a tough thing to wrangle up.
Fewer than 4,600 Avantis were produced in 1963, and the factory closed its doors in December of that year.
The Sunbeam Tiger might not look that crazy, but it's actually the hopped-up, V-8-toting variant of the Sunbeam Alpine.
It was designed in part by Carroll Shelby, who also famously shoved a V-8 into the AC Cobra.
