cyclopsblown34 Brian, thanks for firing me up on my 66. I think this weekend I might get part of the top on. I made the spacers for the rear bow last weekend and installed them. This week I've been hammering on a 68 Camaro and will hopefully paint it next week. Working evenings on client stuff doesn't allow for quick progress. Me and my family projects are my weekend work now.

MARTINSR If he had you weld up the Gran Sport trim holes on the fenders let me at him I will knock the snot out of him!

tech69 right on. I think it could be a 65. I did a slight pull to the tail light panel and recall mocking up those huge tail lights. Thanks for sharing the knowledge. The fenders had the long holes all along the fender. I welded them up. Not sure on the other stuff but will check on the dash pad and bumper and all that. Thanks again.

MARTINSR And if it was a Gran Sport the fenders would have had holes welded up, long rectangular holes, three or four of them where the "gills" mounted at the back near the door below the body line. There were no side mouldings on Gran Sports, but also on Specials there were none.

If it is a 64 or early 65 it would have had holes all down the body for these mouldings, mid year 65 they went to the studs to mount them. The 64 and early 65 also had a down flow rad where the late 65 had a cross flow. I could go on and on with Gran Sport stuff like the battery is mounted on the left side and the skylark is on the right.

I'll check on that today. I think you have one perhaps?
Is there a dead giveaway as to why it's a 64?
If the dash pad goes all the way across I believe that is 65 only. but this is easily changed.






If the body line on the bumper and grille goes down, it's 64.



The 65


The 64 doesn't have tail lights that go all the way across.





The bumper on a 64 is taller on the fender, up as high as the top of the wheel well.



65



It's hard to tell the difference on the fenders in the photos in the booth. It looks like it may be a 65 or 65 fenders.
