First you have to remove chrome 32-bit already installed, for that go to Ubuntu Software Center and search for chrome. When you find it select it, and you can see Remove option.

By clicking remove you can remove the unwanted version, now you can install needed 64-bit version.

Easy way to install Chrome 64-bit version .deb, open with Ubuntu Software Center and click install.
