Still looking for a 71-73, but...
#1
I did pick up a nice early 1965(64 1/2) D code(289 4V) coupe to hold me over.

I my search for a new 71-73 project I got this coupe. A 1965 Code auto with AC, PC and Ralley Pac with 80,000 miles. It was an older restore so I need to freshen it up but overall in great. Haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet, thought about a GT350 clone since it already has the rear valance and stripes LOL. The engine was rebuilt 5,000 miles ago when a mild RV cam was also installed.

Looks nice, you can tell it's an early 65 (64 1/2) by the instrument panel.

How so? My May '65 built vert has what appears to be the same panel. Mine has an ALT warning light. I think the early ones had a GEN warning light. I've never owned a 64.5 so I don't know the differences.

I've read the 64 1/2's and early 65's have the rectangular instrument cluster and the later 65's have the 5 gauge instrument cluster, so that by itself is not definitive to determine if it is a 64 1/2. But look real close at the radio dial, although it's been debated, the 64 1/2 radio dial starts with a "6" and the 65's start with a "5".

Some other signs of the early 65(64 1/5) is the heater blower switch OFF is in the center, the big A on the drivers side air vent knob and the right side dash warning light reads GEN and not ALT because they had a generator not an alternator. Two things I look for are the brake light switch in the master cylinder and the large horns mounted on the frame behind the radiator not in front on the radiator support.

Rural Kansas is still a great place to find good classic projects but not for long. Just this last week I saw several 67-68 cameros for as low as $3,500, 69- 71 chevelles for the same and I saw a drivable 1970 Mustang Mach 1 for $7,500.
