  • 1964 Daytona R3 Engine

    My dad has a 1964 Daytona convertible with an R3 engine in it. It has less than 3000 miles on it. Looking for an idea of its value. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Photos of it would go a long ways in making that call.

          Add several pictures. The car has not been restored, it is original condition including the top. I will get the SN's and post.

                I think that is a car that Ed Reynolds restored a number of years ago.

                    I'm quite sure that is Ed's former car. I think the engine may be out of one of the Bonneville cars.

                      He is doing fine but getting older and is thinking of selling the car.

                        Newbie here so trying to figure out how to post more photos. According to my dad the car was ordered with the R3 engine and delivered to CA. It has the R3 badges on it.

                            I was thinking that Ed R.'s former car had the R3 out of one of the 9 Avantis.

                            There were no factory built R3 convertibles. Just 9 Avantis and one Commander 2 door sedan.

                            But regardless.. Very cool car.

                              That's what I was thinking, Bob. IIRC, the car Ed assembled was silver, but it's been awhile. Perhaps Ed will post. I've often wondered what happened to that car; it's been a long time since I saw it.

                              Hmmm....wouldn't it be something if this car was body #64V-L8 423? Remember, 1964 Daytona Convertible Body #423 has never been accounted for; there is no known Serial Number assigned to a convertible built with Body #423.

                              IF this is a South-Bend car (note the all-white steering wheel) with any Body Number other than 423, we can document that it was not shipped with an R3 engine. But with a white steering wheel, Body #423 unaccounted for, and Hamilton-produced 1964 V8 convertibles not in the mix, "Never say never." BP

                              EDIT: Ed Reynolds has confirmed it was his car and he confirmed the color black, not silver.
