This is a very rare 1964 Daytona Convertible, one of 703 1964 cars built, of which 647 were V8's like this one. This car was for sale in 2014, and has been recorded here on the register. If anyone has details of where this car ended up, or further history on the car, please get in contact with us.
The following details of the car have been derived from the original sales receipt:
This car was for sale in September 2015. If anyone knows the whereabouts of this car now, please contact us so we can update this page. This is one of very few Daytona convertibles still out there - this car is in need of a full restoration.
This 1275LS was for sale in September 2015, located in Wollongong NSW. The car appears to have a variation of the Hi-Ho silver paint, with a sort of olive finish to it. Originally, the car would have been the standard Hi-Ho Silver.
The engine is questionable. It appears to have a small plate over the engine number area, and the number listed in the sale advertisement is not a 1275LS number, so it may indeed be a non original engine. Original engines should have the prefix beginning 12H902.
This is one of just two 1948 4 door convertible Humber Pullman cars produced for the 1954 Royal Tour of Australia, with bodies built by H. J. Mulliner. Images of the Pullman convertible during the tour are attached. It is understood that the twin car to this has been fully restored, whilst this car was found left in a paddock for many years, until being aquired around 2010 for restoration. The convertible humbers were used amongst other Humbers including hard tops and a laundelette.
This 1275LS has had a lot of money put into it, being slightly modified in several areas from the original. The car has a RHS tank installed, as well as four wheel disc brakes (the fronts were always standard on the 1275LS, but the rears are not!). The car also has extra wide wheel arches and 13" wheels, as opposed to the standard 12" x 5.5" wheels. Twin carbies have been installed, noting that the original cars came with just a single 1.5" SU.
This Studebaker Daytona Sport Sedan appeared for sale at the end of July 2015. The car is in very good condition, and appears to be original, other than having a re spray in the original paint colour. This, like other 65 Sports Sedans on Classic Register, is one of 1626 built in 1965, making the car a very rare collectors item. Notably, the 1965 model came with the Chev 283 Thunderbolt V8 engine, as opposed to the small block Studebaker V8 which appeared in 64 model Daytona cars.
