  • Love this 64 Cruiser

    Love that it is a R1, maybe a even a package car, love the color, love the detailed pictures.

    That's at the Bell Museum. One of James & Stephanie's cars?

      Geez I like that car; honest presentation; lots of pics too. I'd probably paint the wheels and drive it as-is.

      I wish the photos of the inner trunk side panels didn't stop just before where the three bolt-holes are.

        That's funny, the surface rusted wheels would be the first thing I addressed too.

          I'm a nutcase about little stuff that my eyes are drawn right to; even on an otherwise beautiful car, if the wheels weren't that off-white (and it was a '62-66 Stude), I'd have to paint the wheels. LOL

            Def a nice car; but, the rust saddens me since it only ca. ca. 25K miles on it. Then again I'm spoiled living where I do.

              I do believe that is a full-package car, with the grille badge and 160 speedometer visible in the pics.

                Nice car...but a smooth running regular 289 would be a bit more in keeping with the character of this top-line Studebaker. Leave the R-1's for the Avanti crowd!

                  Could it be full package with having the column shift automatic? I guess the production would say for sure. Nice car at any rate. Not important, but the AC is not an original '64 factory installation.

                    Now when you ask for detailed pics of the car people can take lessons from this car owner. Tom

                      It is not my car, but I know it pretty well having drooled over it more then a time or two.
                      It is the second one of my top five favorites from the Bell Collection to be listed on eBay in as many months.
                      They do good ads.

                      As for the questions/comments- between the prior owner and James- I'm sure one of them will chime in.
                      They both hang out here from time to time...

                          64V14494 was indeed R1 powered, but was not a full-package car.

                          It was built Jet Green with Green Vinyl Interior; engine #JTK323.

                          Power Steering, Padded Visors, Disc Brakes, Twin Traction, Heavy-Duty, column-shift Flightomatic, Tinted Glass in all windows.

                          Destination: Eugene, Oregon.

                          'Nice package even if it isn't a full package! Obviously, the package-specified grille badge and air conditioning were added later. It would not have had a grille badge from the get-go, since it was not a full-package car.

                            It is possible that the previous owner obtained and installed the grille badge. They aren't that hard to come by.
                            (just speculation on my part, of course!)

                              Yes BUT, don't '64 JT Cars come with the important Package pieces ie. : Traction Bars and Rear Stabilizer?
                              I believe this Car has most of all the Package Parts, Factory Grille Badge and HD Springs and Shocks are no big deal.
                              I wonder if they anticipated the A/C being Dealer or aftermarket installed and ordered HD A/C Springs.

                              The other possibility is that with that correct A/C Hose installation and correct Compressor, it is VERY likely that the Dealer Installed under dash unit was replaced.

                              Truth be told, I do not care about ANY of those "Nits", I like the Car very much as is, I have seen it several times also.
                              I would only give it what it needs, starting with refinishing the original Ivory and rust Wheels and a few details.
