  • 1964 Daytona

    How many 1964 Daytona 2 doors were produced? I have one that I bought for the engine and transmission but I think the car is to good to haul to the scrap yard. Anyone know of someone looking for one? Cheap! I am located in Mandan North Dakota. I really hate to haul it out for scrap.

    Those are the nicest looking 64 Daytonas, IMO.

          The trunk lid mouldings are hard to find.

            2,414. Please don't junk that one; they're 'way too desirable. BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

              Does the engine have chrome valve covers? If it does, then does it have an oval badge on the side of the front fender? If it does, does it have a floor shifter for the automatic? If it does, then you may have a car MUCH more valuable than you think. Please check on these first.

                    Looks to be about a 400-500 mile journey for me (assuming that Fargo is midway between you and I). Any chance that you are headed towards Minnesota with a car trailer?

                      This Daytona may have Power Disc Brakes and 11 Inch Finned Rear Drums for and peculiar to front Disc. Brakes, it also would have a Model 44 Axle and possibly Twin Traction, way too good of a Car to Part out though, very useable as is with an engine install and repairs. Even a 283, 327 350 GM Engine could easily be installed using '65/'66 Front Mounts etc.

                      It even has the rare DISHED headlight Doors!

                      Obviously this is not JUST a 2 Door, it's a 2 Dr. Hardtop, the Sportiest, nicest Body Type made.

                      How many did they made? Not nearly enough!

                        The only one of that body more desirable is the convertible. If you were closer I'd grab it in a heartbeat!

                          The dished headlight surrounds were original South Bend production. Then, the second design with the sharp interior corner was installed on Hamilton '64 models and all '65. This later style was the one supplied as a replacement part since that time, so, over the years a lot of the early South Bend parts got replaced, making the dished style seemingly more rare. I've bought more than one '64 that had one of each style on it - but most people don't catch the difference unless it is pointed out.

                            No chrome valve covers, the badge on the fender just says v8 and no floor shifter, I may consider selling the car with the engine and transmission in it.
