    I can't remember either what all was in the appearance kit, but front & rear window mouldings sounds right, I believe it had Commander body side mouldings also it would have a hood ornament added.

    The Interior kit had a right hand arm rest and R/h visor an possibly a glove box, instead of the cardboard door. The Challenger also came with an extra cheap clock dummy, cheesier than a Commander and WAY cheesier than the nice Daytona one that had the glass and chrome bezel.

    Well since we got only a little OT talking about '64 Challengers instead of '63 Standards, here is a rare one, a built the day before shutdown, '64 Challenger I used to own, it was ordered with the Taxi seat W/Green Cloth it's got the #85 Convenience Group which I think is the Interior kit. It was a V-8 with Commander body side Mouldings and Commander nameplates and Challenger "C" pillar Lark emblem (no window Mldgs. tho) when Dad bought it in 1975, so it COULD have been built that way, I don't know.

    I think it was one of those that got factory modified from the unsold lot to fill existing orders, because it also had Air Cond. & Power Steering added.

    My Dad, who was a Studebaker dealer up thru the end, told me that at their dealership they would many times install the Commander stainless stide trim on the Challengers. Low cost, not much time invested, and the added trim made the Challengers much more 'saleable'.

    In fact, he had me do this to his '64 Challenger F-body.

        Well, that's the item in question, Dwain: Option #76 for Standards; Exterior Trim Group.
        Now, has anyone really seen one so built? [?][:0][8D] BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
