  • crusier y9

    I was getting some info on seat covers for my 1964 cruiser. they wanted to know if it was a cruiser or was it a cruiser y9. I had no idea what they were talking about. to me a cruiser is a cruiser. anyone know what they are talking about?. thanks in advance. PS. I won a trophy last sunday for best in class. it kind of perked my interest in my cruiser. ah life is sweet. LEONARD

    Body symbol Y was a long wheelbase 4-door sedan. A Y9 was that model with the highest level of luxury appointments. All 64 Cruisers were model symbol Y9. 1963 Cruisers were Y8.

      Who knows just HOW confused these people are!
      They COULD be trying to differentiate a '64 Cruiser Y9 from a '64 Daytona Y8 4 Door Sedan, you never know.

      That difference would be significant, because a Y9 Has a Fold Down Arm Rest in the Back cushion of the Rear Seat and the Y8 does NOT.

      Just know that a '64 Cruiser IS a Y9 Body Type as on your Firewall Tag, and the are NO non-Y9 "Cruiser" 4 Door Sedans, only "Challengers", "Commanders" and "Daytonas"!

      Just tell them you HAVE a Y9 Cruiser WITH a Fold down Rear Arm Rest.
      Unless of course, your Car is modified and it does not.
