You are correct 59-64 used the same color. Here is a link that lists several suppliers P/N's I do not have any personel experience with any of them, sorry.

I assume the engines were cleaned before painting? The only engine paint I have ever used are the Duplicolor engine paints for Pontiac and Chevrolet and never had an issue with them

My Pontiac expert in Tx says that Plasti Kote 208 is the correct paint for the '64 engine. Amazon has that. Very little rust in this '64. A bit on bottom of radiator support beneath battery and a spot in back pass floor where there evidently was a leak in the back windshield. The truck floor is the worse part. May have to replace that.

Bought new coil springs from Eaton. Anyone have any experience with those folks?

We are going to use Ames a good bit for parts on this work. They know the most about Pontiacs. Right? Carpet, weather strip, more will come from them.

Eaton is the source for anybody restoring an old Corvette for original springs, so they are fine.
I personally use Ames but for certain interior parts you might be better off going to the actual manufacturer, such as Legend for interiors.

The seat covers (upgraded due to this being a 'Ventura' as I understand it) are really nice. We are having new foams put in the front and the springs stretched there as it is too soft after 50+ years. The bottoms of the door panels need some help and maybe we can get some sort of carpet strip to go over the base. Tks.

The folks that own this car are from Lulling, La. The car was bought new at Jefferson Motors in Marrero, La. That dealership is long gone now. the owner's father was the original buyer. We are going to put Vintage Air in the car. Will insulate with Dynamat and Dynaliner.
