64 Spyder coupe project.

Post by 4carbcorvair »

Unfortunately, this project isn't going to start for quite some time. In the mean time, it's in dry storage on blocks. Plan is to make it a good daily driver. :) Not equiped with much for options. Does have the rear antenna which I like. Seats cleaned up real well, with one small tear on the side of the driver seat near the chrome trim. Only major rust is the floors and front valance and I have two floor panels already for it. Plan is to keep it the original color, or close to it.

I'm thinking about rebuilding the engine, stock, have the Turbo gone through. I think I"ll do a two barrel carb, using an adapter I got recently. :) I want to keep it pretty much stock, might do quick arms and probably install baby moons and tirm rings. Keep it a simple dependable driver. :)

Hi Sam, Unfortunately no. :cry: I have been so busy since I got it. I'm glad I was able to get it into dry storage this summer. Last registration in the glove box expired in 73, so I'm assuming it's been off the road since 72 or 73.

Lucky! I have a 64 coupe, but sadly it's not a spider. :cry:


I'll have to take some pictures of it.
I am currently working on my 65 but the 64 is really getting to me...I was a "late model only" guy, but I am really liking this 64, and I'm dying to start working on it.
