    It's a very nice car, but I don't know anyone in our club who has checked it out fully, though. Many local members plan on going to the auction. I think his family has been pushing the auction in our recent newsletters. If you love '63s it would be a perfect car to drop an R2 in (if you have one ready to go ) and be happy right away without a huge initial expense. I hope they get a good price for it, but I also hope someone gets a good deal on it.

    Last weekend I watched a really nice retiree whom I met at the Cleveland Auto-Rama offer his perfect car up to The Kiko Classic Car Auction only to lose about a cool $100K on $164 Gold Medal winning 1956 T-Bird restoration. No reserve auctions would scare me to death as a seller. That recent so-so Hawk going for 99K beat what he got. Sad.

      Come to Brent! I love '63 Daytonas! No need for an R2, I would be satisfied with the original 259. Same engine and tranny combination as my rust-bucket Daytona convertible, they are a joy to drive.

          Looks like a nice car once the wheelcovers and whitewalls are corrected.

                Front bumper guards are one bolt in too far on each side too. That said, I've seen this car before and it is a beauty, with red cloth buckets and 4-speed and the original window sticker intact. I used to not like the Champagne Gold with red interior combination but I grew to really like it.

                I think if it sold, somebody got an extremely sharp car.
