Saturday’s Rolex 24 At Daytona

Teammate Tommy Milner in the No. 4 closely followed with a time of 1:45.215.

1964 Fuelie 4-Speed w/Big Tank
Ends on Tuesday, January 30 at 1:46pm PST
Tuxedo Black w/White Interior, L84 327/375hp Fuel Injected Big Tank.
This amazing “Tanker” was completely restored around ’12. Very little was known at the time about the car, so AutoAncestry.com was brought in to do a search for all previous owners and information on the car. The N.C.R.S. Shipping Data Report was also ordered and found that the car had been built on May 19, 1964, and delivered to Guaranty Chevrolet in San Diego, California. Search results showed it was ordered by a gentleman in the Navy, who must have had some racing in mind. The car is equipped with not only the N03, 36.5-gallon gas tank option, but also transistor ignition (offered for the first time in 1964), the L84 fuel injected engine, J56 vented metallic racing brakes, F40 suspension, and quick take off wheels. In other words, all the 1963 Z06 package options. The color combo of Tuxedo Black exterior with a White leather interior and Black carpets is also quite unique and very rare.
The very sharp ’67 featured here is a car that we sold the previous owner almost 30 years ago! When he purchased it, the car was painted in its original Sunfire Yellow color with Tuxedo (White/Black) interior and White soft top. But the decision was made back then to paint it Rally Red and replace the White interior and top with Black. When we re-purchased the car, we decided to leave the car Red, but put the interior and top back to its factory colors. So, that’s what we did! It now has a brand-new Tuxedo interior and White soft top! And we have to say, it looks fantastic!
Under the hood is a matching #’s L79 327/350hp small block, backed up with an M20 close ratio 4-speed manual transmission. Other options include, AM/FM radio, side exhaust, and aluminum Bolt-on wheels wrapped in red line bias ply rubber. The car has just been serviced and is ready to go!
Restored and N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award Winner!
