    That and the rear seat has the pleats going the wrong way. A $650 set of my cover would fix both.

      Looked to be a desirable car, sold for $27,000.

      A few years back an identical local car was for sale for three years at $14,000, with no takers. Wonder if it got from here to Cleveland?

        The dash and console should not be wood-grained.

          Are you sure?
          The 64s had wood trim...and this one also has the black dask and all-black doors & interior, so it would be a late car. Couldn't this be a late 63 or early 64 with round headlights?
          Plus, if the AM/FM is a factory unit, that too would point to a 64.
          I'm no expert, but from what I've read the 63-64 Avanti changeover was anything but uniform.

            Looks like an upgrade to a 64 interior, plus Hurst floor shift, plus AM-FM. All in all a very nice looking car. Any ideas about the Power Brake booster
            master cylinder?

              That car was sold at the Spring Carlisle Auction, earlier this year.

                This is an early car, 63R3510, built in February,1963.

                Long battery.

                The all black interior did not come out until May,1963.

                Factory interior would have been black with red and black carpet. Dash, upper door panels and rear shelf would have been fawn.

                No wood grain dash or console.

                No factory AM-FM. Window sticker shows AM radio.

                Correct master cylinder and brake booster.
