    Thank you for taking the time to do all this, Paul. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      Yes, hopefully you'll find a home for them, but too far gone for me.l

        I have high hopes for the Commader. PBR clone material. The 4 speed will help sell it (heck, the 4 speed set up alone is worth the opening bid).

        Would make a great sleeper...all stock (including the bench seat), white wheels, dog dish hubcaps, warmed 289.

          I too like that Commander, and I'm not much of a Lark lover. If I were in any position (even a crazy desire) to do a full-redo on a car, I would be all over that.

            FWIW, Paul, 64V15736 was built with Twin Traction, too, in addition to being a factory 4-speed, 210 HP 289.

                Bob's spent more than his share of time in the archives.

                  Just read the '63 GT listing.
                  Certainly one of the most honest and accurate descriptions I have ever seen on ebay..

                    I'd love to have the 4 speed set up even the TT if it is a 44. The auction will probably be over before i could scrape up the cash. But it would probably cost around $1000 to get it shipped here, wonder how hard it would be to get it loaded onto a truck?

                      Wow! Thanks Bob. I wondered if it might be, but I didn't feel like crawling in the poison ivy to look at the differential.

                        Fortunately it's right where it could be winched right on to a rollback or a trailer.

                          Its very kind of you to be doing this for someone in need.

                          Stude people , What the heck is it with them ?

                          I think it is a rare and wonderfull thing.

                          But wait,.... Is that just because I live in California ?

                          Just kidding but I myself respect and admire your efforts.

                            Both cars now have bids and I have had a bunch of questions. I'm encouraged to start a couple more auctions.
