That looks like a decent Canadian built '64 Daytona 4 Door, it is quite rare with Overdrive and what looks to be close to the original Jet Green. If the MN road salt has not eaten the bottom out. :!: The price seems very fair.

That's a lot nicer than the one I drug home last week! I've always liked that body style.
I wouldn't mind having that old Deere sitting next to it either.

It is not a "1964 Cruiser" as the topic heading states.

I'd be happy to go cruisin' in that thing. Almost too good a price to believe! If I hadn't just bought this GT Hawk!

Two years ago that would have been in my back yard. Good price for sure! Milaca's probably getting his checkbook out by now.

I am interested and plan to call tomorrow. I probably have access to mechanics near me who can get a new engine in it, if it comes down to that.

Is there anyone on the list that is near that car and could actually look at it? PM me please.

I'd appreciate any suggestions from anyone who's had experience shipping a car that far. No, I will NOT even dream of using the goombahs on Shipping Wars to ship anything I own! Based on a couple of posts I've noticed, it would be less than $1000 if I were to ship the car to Nevada, correct?

It's interesting. There are no outside mirrors. Was that common?

Not unless the Cruisers in 1964 came with Daytona script on their fenders.:confused:

Besides that- there's all that Daytona trim that sorta gives it away...

The side trim was painted differently on '64 Cruisers.
A '64 Cruiser did not have crossed flags on the 'c' piller.
A '64 Cruiser had different trim on the decklid.

Conversation about this car continues in the following new thread. It will be interesting to see what Leo finds out. :) BP

You better get with some shippers and find out. If the car is not in a major shipping hub, you may not get any response to a bid unless you sweeten the pot. I had an $1800 quote to get 3 cars from a rural area in Michigan to Phoenix. Ended up paying $1000 to get them from the rural area to a major hub, then had to sweeten the bid by a couple hundred to get them to Phoenix, so an $1800 bid became $3000. Be careful.

Sorry guys, I have no idea why I put "1964 Cruiser" as the topic. Its obviously a Daytona. I own a 63 Cruiser and was thinking about my car as I was reading the ad. My Bad.
