  • 1964 Daytona? Studebaker

    Does anyone know anything about the pace car for the 1964 Daytona 500 being a Studebaker? Is that model of car rare? I was told that there were only about 160 made with 122 having bucket seats?

    If anyone could enlighten me I would appreciate it. Pics appreciated.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    I have never heard of a 64 Daytona at the Daytona 500, but it might have been

    I think there were 437 Daytona convertibles made in South Bend and about 300 made in Canada. Not sure of the exact numbers.

    I don't know how many had bucket seats.

        Probably a '62. Wasn't the Mustang the Pace Car in '64?

            I think someone piling it on pretty high with both of those statements. In 1964 it was a Dodge Coronet convertible at the Daytona 500, and several 1000 1964 Studebaker Daytona's were built.

              There were 2,681 Studebaker convertibles made in 62.

              I have a book on Indy pace cars, but I have never seen anything on Daytona 500 pace cars.

                    Not really, looks like you Google'ed the Indy 500, not the Daytona 500 as was posted.
