Hi Bob,

That is one of the best I have seen so far, and we are almost at 400 GT's in the Registry.

Now that I have the pics, can you take a minute and send me the details and VIN, body tag and JTS #'s. email: studee64@cogeco.ca

Great looking car! I feel like I had a small contribution by my eBay purchases. Good use of the nickle and dime profits.

Is that Avanti Red or some other shade?

It looks great Bob, looks to me like the Standard '64 Red, the Bordeaux Red, a Solid color not Metallic, and not as Maroon as Avanti Metallic Red.
This is just a Dark Red with a slight touch of Brown, no blue tint.

The stance does look correct Allen, [^] all '63 & '64 GT's have extra body shims in the rear, to prevent the driveshaft "rap" that '62's have.

Interesting note is that either 3 or 4, I forget, Bordeaux Red, with black vinyl Sportroof R2's were produced in '64. Three survive.

I was told only 3 that color and the 1/2 roof detail and full package, this one has every thing except a/c even the little things recliner seats, Am/Fm, both head rests, all black interior except the headliner,power shift, all the package items. And yes Paul this is the one I asked you about in Ga. but went and got it myself, but I know if I would have had you look at it it would have worked out the same way.this was restored in 1989 and on the back cover of T/W in Sept. of 89, work was done by my friend Jim Spivey before he retired and moved back to Ga. he passed away a few years ago and his wife asked if I was interested in it my answer was put a price on it.

Yes Bob, I believe you are right about the 3 only. I think yours is the most fully equipped of the three. Mine is a Powershift also and the other is a 4 speed. If yours doesn't have the padded visors that is the only available option it is missing. Mine lacks those and the headrests and reclining seats, otherwise it is the twin to yours. I wish mine was in as good condition as yours, it looks to be truly stunning.

Yes it has the padded visors, and I saw and talked to the owner of the 4 speed car in South Bend in 07, that is how I found out about only being 3 of them, really nice cars and I like the 64 the best have had other at one time or another, this one is in the family to stay as my grandson loves it and wants it so there you go he can have it in time along with a few others.
