Concerning the radiator, the tanks are shot also so a recore wont work?
If you are willing to go custom there is a well known company in the Corvette restoration field https://www.dewitts.com/ that might be able to make one.

It needs a front windshield and I see those are available. We are going to put a Vintage Air system on the car. The original radiator is no good and we must get a good radiator. Not sure exactly where to find that. Tks.
OPGI has them.

I have been negligent on posting progress on this '64. We stripped it and now have it painted. Sunfire Red. Engine rebuilt; trans rebuilt. Putting weather stripping on. Vintage Air; Had the original radio rebuilt with modern internals.

A few more photos. The owners have owned this Cat since it was new. The wife's father bought it in New Orleans in 1963.

Always great to know the history of the car and even better a basically one owner car.

Tires for this '64. Would a 235R70 x 14 be (about) correct? Do you folks know the size (width) of the whitewall on these original cars? 1"? Thanks for any guidance.

Folks: Tires for this '64. A friend says 235R70 x 14 would be pretty correct. Any thoughts on that? Also, what size whitewall would have come on this car?
1'?
Tks for any advice.
Mike
