    I would check some of the hard to replace items such as the torsion bars, and the front sway bar. If you know what an early A body sway bar looks like, that would be a pretty big giveaway, as they’re not easy to find, and not often installed to try to pass off as a real S car. Torsion bars too, and of course the “31” must be there, that is the 4bbl motor designation.

    With all due respect regarding 65 Barracuda S cars:
    The 322 sales code option for the S package includes the tachometer as printed on the window sticker. The tachometer could be optioned on any 8 cylinder car (sale code 468), but was standard equipment with the S package.
    SG (Sure-Grip) was an extra cost option with any engine or transmission choice or package choice, and true for either the 7 1/4" or 8 3/4" rear end. So far as I know, the only time Sure-Grip was a "mandatory option" was a 4 speed Hemi or 440 Magnum car with the required 9 3/4" Dana rear.
    The only way I know to identify a factory Formula S package on a 1965 Barracuda is if the number "2" is stamped beneath the large letter "C" on the fender tag. And strangely enough, I haven't found the S package (again sales code 322) denoted on a 1965 build sheet. But all of the "S" performance components, such as the tachometer are on the build sheet.

    Thank you, I am asking for a picture of the fender tag and have not received a response from the seller.

    Dart GT.jpg If I could find another red 64 Dart GT Hardtop that has all of the paint already done, I could use all of the parts from my total loss car. With that being said, I would like to find a V-8 car this time around.

    thanks for chiming in Biggs, I was in the ball park, but didn’t come near a home run. I did hear that about mid year 65, the 7 1/4” rear in a 4 speed car was automatically a SG due to the high rate of warranty replacements they were receiving. And that the 8 3/4” was offered as an option in late 65, again for this reason.

        Thank you, that is a fair asking price. I do want a V8 car this time around. I am sure you will sell it fairly quickly. A little bit of hard work and that car would start to sparkle.

        I believe the insurance claim should be all done sometime next week. I am looking over two cars that I may make an offer on. But, they are not a 1964 Dodge Dart GT which is not an issue for me. However, my 2 copilots 8 and 12 are still expressing their sadness at losing the car. And, have even expressed their desire to have the car repaired, or finding another 64 Dart GT Hardtop. I know I am the one to make the decision, but my boys are challenging me. The classic car adjuster estimated the car repair for $1000 less than what I have an agreed value amount with my insurer. I could add 3K from my wallet and find a car already done. Decisions Decisions Decisions.

          Thank you, I have two commando engines. Just installed one with a four speed into my 64 and I have a 66 commando I may put in this car with auto on the floor. If someone is interested I will offer the 273 or a split exhaust and offenhauser with twin webbers.

          I found a gold 1964 Dart GT for sale. I have had many auto enthusiasts over the years mention that the Gold Dart GT's were a special color for the Dodge anniversary. Is this true or just a wrong interpretation?

          The gold anniversary is 50 years and 64 was Dodge's Golden Anniversary. There were a lot of gold cars produced in 64. I can't tell if it was a special model but I remember seeing a horn button with Golden Anniversary or the like on it. Hey, look what I found. 1964 DODGE Dart GT 50th Anniversary Edition 273 V8 Auto, Mopar for sale, Muscle Cars, Collector, Antique, and Vintage Cars, Street Rods, Hot Rods, Rat Rods, and Trucks for sale by KC Classic Auto in Heartland, Midwest, Kansas City, Classic and Muscle Car Dealer, Museum and Storage
