  • This could be a nice '64 Cruiser...

    If you could buy this car right, it might clean up and be halfway respectable with the seats redone.

    Not a bad looking Calif. Cruiser! I see the bone White steering wheel behind the dark wrap also the Canadian sourced Air cleaner, it's a 2nd. Series, late '64 Canuk version.

      It does look good. I am not interested because I have already owned four 1964 Cruisers.
      Interesting equipment with individual seats with recliners and no radio,.
      How could anyone believe that it is on 1964 tires with 45K miles on them. I remember wearing out original 1964 tires in 15K miles (six months).
      What is on the right sunvisor?

        A Cruiser without a radio?

          Or you could just look at the posted C5 Serial Number and go by that.

            Indeed, it was an option. I've seen a few Cruisers without radios, including another '64 in the same color as this one, and my '65 Cruiser.

              I believe that you mean without radios.

                Looks to be missing the battery hold down as well.

                  That would be a deal killer.

                    Yeh, Nick. No BP hold down would make it so I couldn't sleep at nights without it! I have to agree with Bob, a little TLC could make this a pretty nice driver. The trim looks great and unmolested, the dashboard too and when was the last time you saw a "Cushion-Aire" tire? In expensive paint job and upholstery replacement would make this a nice driver.

                      Uh-Oh, Nick; you got me on that one!

                      Not to worry: Only a few miles of driving on curved and/or rough roads and that power steering pump cover will have carved a hole in the side of the battery...and the new owner will thus be notified of that important missing part! BP
