  • 64 R1 Daytona Sedan

    What value is this at approx $USD 35,000, looks good though.

    I'm curious about an Immaculate restoration with a 4 speed, automatic overdrive transmission?

      I'm pretty sure I remember this car on eBay probably five or more years ago. It was nice, on blackwall tires then, and whomever was the winning bidder decided to do a full-restoration or close to it.

      I actually bid on the car--I think up to $7,500. I want to say it went for something like $8,700 but I shouldn't be quoted on that.

        A very nice car with limited modifications to truly being restored, but, IMO, WAY too much money primarily due to too many doors.

            If it were a R-2 with the proper Power-Shift, it would be worth it for years of entertainment at the PSMCDs
            Too expensive already, to upgrade though, ...unless of course one is loaded with dough.

              Nice Car But Price Not Realistic

              I really really like 1964 Daytona Sedans --

              This is a nice one -- the R1 engine makes it very desirable -- but the price in USD at around $35K is about three times what it is worth in my humble opinion --

                We really can't tell if this Daytona has the Factory H.D. Flight-O-Matic, and the Ad is the typical copied from another or defaulted to 4 Speed Overdrive or it is REAL, by some kind of magic using the stock shifter.

                It resembles this Car that was here in the States:

                Ya know, that big Diaphragm gizmo added to the Right inner fender resembles a Propane Vaporizer, it also has a Gas line, so it MAY be Dual Fuel Propane/Gasoline!

                  Mr. Tanner (owner) states that PO stateside converted it to a GM 700R4 and that it runs 60 mph at 1,500 RPM, AC on 18-19 mpg. The GM tranny is a Deal breaker for me....

                    The car is in Nannup, Western Australia.
                    I guess that would rule out most who won't ship from the next state .
                    I have seen it a few times in the past. A very impressive car.

                      Rich,

                      Just wondering if you have any information on the car that you pictured. The reason I ask is the similarity to a car that belonged to the K2 ski dowager, which had been on Vashon Island for it's whole life, until about three or four years ago when it was sold.

                        I am in the process of restoring a '63 Daytona Wagonaire: red, blk and white interior, 3rd row seat, roof rack. 289, etc. Very nice car. And I'm switching out the Flightomatic for a 700R4. When finished, the car will look 100% stock. I may also use Turner disc brakes on the front, and electronic ignition. These small modifications in my opinion do not detract from it's "Studebaker-ness" in any way-- no one can see them, but the car will be safer, more economical, more fuel efficient, and longer-lasting. Why would this be a "deal-breaker" for anyone? Just curious...

                          Hey, I like the 700R4 myself, have two vehicles in the driveway so equipped right now. One has 563,456 miles on it, never any trans problems.
                          But as I mentioned in post #6 above, at that price my only interest in it would be as a PSMCD (PURE STOCK Muscle Car Drag racer) that would be the only reason I could see to ever justify spending $35k on a '64 Studebaker 4door.
                          For that kind of outlay, I'd want some real pleasure and notice for my buck.
                          And having a 700R4 would immediately disqualify it for Pure Stock racing, and finding and rebuilding a proper Studebaker PowerShift would run $$$$ more. Other than that use this Daytona would to me, only be a rather odd garage queen waiting to be sold or traded for something less rare. And I love the 1964 Daytona's. Have owned four 2dr Hardtops, two presently.

                            When this car was on eBay a few years back, I seem to remember that the original owner was a woman, and I'm thinking she had owned it a good while.
