1966 Studebaker Daytona 2 Door Sports Sedan

This one was advertised throughout 2020 as a barn find, and then someone got it going and advertised it for $8,500 which seems reasonable for a car with less tham 70,000 original miles. This is the final series Daytona 2-door, with the 283 chev, and factory disc brakes. In the original advertisement, the seller noted the following information: 

Car comes with the original valve covers as well as the chrome ones it’s wearing now Transistor ignition system Prestolite alternators were originally fitted to the McKinnon engines, and alternative fuel pumps were fitted to allow clearance of Studebaker’s chassis cross-member. Single exhaust Twin speed wipers Heater works ( that's important in Nebraska) Automatic transmission Studebaker A/C works but needs charging Has original radio that that has bad reception do to old antenna Bucket seats are in good condition Has center console New tires New brakes. Rear drum brakes are 10 inch. Not sure if front are disc or drum. Call owner if you you need to know. Drum brakes were finned for temperature control / reduced fade Optional 11 inch front disc brakes with Dunlop-Bendix calipers. Dual circuit brakes Independent front suspension (coil springs) and live rear axle (leaf springs) New fuel pump New starter Runs and drive well Most glass is good Lights and gages work

Great to see another survivor.
