    I think somebody needs to pull the inboard headlights out and run cold air tubes to the aircleaner from the openings...ala some early 60's FX cars [].

    It looks like it has two black-eyes to me.

    I often wondered how a '64 would look with the headlight rims blacked out.

    There are some 1965 proposals where the headlight rims were only partially painted matte black in certain areas, in addition to the vertical bridges on the gille mesh ala '64 G.T. Hawk grille. It didn't really improve the look at all as the '64's were already attractive, but was one of those requirements at the time where the public expected drastic changes from the previous year.

    '64 Daytona Raccoon


    I often wondered how a '64 would look with the headlight rims blacked out. To satisfy this morbid curiosity, I picked up a pair of used rims at York and powder coated them in a charcoal semi-gloss. You can see the results. To tell the truth, I wasn't crazy about the look, so I put the stock rims back on. Maybe it just doesn't work right with a black car.

    However, I figured that someone out there might actually like the effect, and want to become the proud owner of this pair of rims. I would be willing to pass them along for my total investment of $5, plus shipping. If interested, drop me an email.
