  • 64 Daytona Hard Tops

    When the new '64 Studebakers were introduced I was a 17 year old high school student. It was "love at first sight" with the Avanti, the GT Hawk , and the Daytona Hardtop. Now that I'm an old xart and have a buck or two, I see lots of Avantis and GT Hawks for sale. Where are all the '64 Daytonas hiding?...I hardly ever see one for sale.

        Yes, I did say that, didn't I....too much of a lazy xss, I guess. Am I being "shamed" into it...I should be after opening my big mouth! OK, I'll do it!...

          Could it be, back in the day they were just a "Lark Type"? and worn down/used up old Studebaker run of the Mill

                I think that there was only about 1200 built if so how many could be still on the earth as cars? I have in the shop and have scrapped one and sent a few out of the country, and sold a couple here and don't know where they are now.

                  It appears you are already receiving some excellent responses on your thread just for them. Keep up the good work!

                      I restored this one. It left the factory Strato Blue, 259 V8, 2 bbl, automatic, front bench, Dana 27 w/3.07 gear (open). Now it is Laguna blue, 289 V8, 4 bbl, 4 speed, front buckets, Dana 44 w/3.54 gear TT. Very tight car. Very fun to drive. We've had it on the road 1 year and put 3300 miles on it. It is a really fun car.Click image for larger version

                          I stand corrected, and I think the number that are still some where other than China is still rather high, same as the Avanti.

                              64 Daytona hard tops are great cars. I have owned three of them thru the years. Last one was an R2 4 speed.
