[QUOTE=Lonnies Performance;1150295]

There were only 2,410 convertibles made in '64 so they are rather rare.
I once heard there were less than 200 still registered at this time, but can no longer find where I saw this.

The AACA estimates that less than one percent of a " typical auto's " production will survive in any condition after 25 years .
That's about 24 cars . The Starfire was not " typical " and so may have survived in somewhat greater numbers , but not much .
Rust and the failure of their " slim Jim's " claimed a lot of them .

I guess I’m a darksider too with my -65 Delta 88 4d HT. Got this beuty about a year ago and had a lovely summer with cruises and meets here in Sweden. Now, the snow falls heavily from the skies, so she sits in the garage getting some TLC. Just finished installing a retrosound stereo and new speakers.

Cheers!

Thanks guys! Im very much in love with this big old boat.
The wheels added to the appeal when I bought it. To me, the american racing and white lettering combo is a mild flirt to its "muscle" relatives and adds that little spice to the package.

drjimz, that's the first time I've seen an auto- tronic eye mounted on an outside fender, instead of on top of the instrument panel. Your car looks outstanding. The "big girls" have a superb ride, like riding on a cloud.

Nice wagon. I know someone with a 'super clean '63 Fiesta. Has "Meteor" (as opposed to Fisher) body sill plates if I recall correctly.

I'm thinking that the "Meteor" sill plates would indicate a conversion to a "commercial" car (think ambulance or hearse conversion). Miller-Meteor made some on Olds chassis, but many were on a Cadillac chassis. As a commercial vehicle, most likely would have limited use, ever see a dirty hearse?

Just my thoughts, but I could be wrong.

So Nitro, what do your sill plates say on 'em?

ON EDIT: It was "Ionia Body"; the bodies on some GM wagons of the era were supplied by Mitchell-Bentley Corp. of Ionia Michigan,

Thanks for the comments guys! I snapped a picture of the rocker today since I drove the car to work, it was built at Ionia.
