1964 Studebaker Daytona 2 Door Hardtop

A very nice example which has sat on Ebay for a long time, located in Grand Rapids Michigan, and at the time we spotted it was asking $55,000 USD. That's a lot for a Daytona, but this one is fairly special with that low mileage, and is in immaculate condition! The seller made the following comments in the original advertisement:

"The 59-year-old black paint has been well maintained and as expected there are a few minor blemishes
but still the finish shines with a deep luster. Likewise, the bumper chrome is well preserved with only some light patina and such is the case of the related stainless and body trim which all glimmers brightly.

Inside the red interior, the original seat upholstery is still rich in color with little if any wear on the cloth inserts. The carpet has some light color fade, but the condition is truly amazing. The dash with its large gauges features in one pod the oil, temperature, and amperage and a 120 MPH speedometer in the other. The surrounding dash chrome detail is bright and mirror-like, no plastic here, all chromed metal. The white steering wheel rim continues the theme of white control knobs that provide highlights to the red interior, and honestly, this dashboard is a work of art, built back when cars had a soul. The trunk space on this car, much like the whole car, is a time capsule complete with original Studebaker maintenance products. The original vinyl floor covering and spare tire cover are present as well as the original spare tire and related tire changing accessories.

Under the hood sits the 259cid V8 looking very close to the condition it left the showroom in. Present are all the correct spring-style hose clamps, and the factory decals and assembly paint markings. Power from this little V8 is transferred to the rear differential through a three-speed manual transmission that is column-shifted. The underbody and chassis were lightly undercoated. It is doubtful the underside of this car has ever seen anything but paved roads on warm sunny days. The suspension is solid and tight as expected from such a low-mileage car."
