I've always held the '64 Daytonas as my favorite non-truck Studebakers. There is an awfully nice one on Ebay right now. The only problem is its location. Do any of you BC'ers have any first person knowledge of this car?

Steve, I'd recommend you send an e-mail to the Turning Wheels editors. They are in Vernon, B.C., which is about an hour distant from Kamloops. Either Art or Ann may know the car, and if not, they should be able to direct you to a Kamloops SDC member who could help you.

The e-mail address can be found in TW, and I believe also right here if you go to the thread by the guy with 3 Studes for sale. He got a little reminder from Bob Shaw about the benefits of running an ad in TW.

Does look like a nice car. Kind of bugs me to see an opening bid so close to the BIN. I think JP has proven conclusively that a low opening bid, with a modest reserve and an attractive BIN is the way to stimulate interest in an auction.

If someone bids the Buy it Now goes away and the car could go for a lot more. If it was in the states, I'd have bought it by now.

I think the production numbers I have seen from Fred Fox or Art Unger showed 1734 model J8 hardtops produced in total, and about 657 Canadian made in Hamilton, Ontario...133 X 289's (of which 52 were 4 speeds and 81 automatics) and 524 X 259's..(35 stds, 24 o/d's, 442 Auto, and 23 4 spds)

The white steering wheel and the crossed flags, (without the 'V8' in the center) are the tell tale differences for a Canadian Daytona..

It's about 3-4 hours north east of me...in the dry intermountain region of BC. If it's lived there its whole life, it may have avoided the tin worms.

What a pretty car [:p]

Those production numbers posted by Studee64 are exactly correct. It is a nice car. I took some photos of it in July this year when he went on a tour with us (350 miles one way).
For most of its life this car was hiding in a garage and few knew of its existence.

Brian knows the owner and the car. Says he's a member of SDC's BC Southern Interior Chapter and a good builder...currently working on a '34 Stude rod.
