I like the history of these cars - it was such a cool time in the automotive industry.

The 1963 Ford Galaxie lightweights had buckets and four speed, T-10. Pretty sure the Tasca Ford 823 was a lightweight.

I did a little looking on these 63 1/2 cars researching another (62) project, so don't say "Erik said so", because I could be wrong.

Schmidt 64, red interior column auto ............ all Automatic Stk. SS cars have an "A"  eg. C/SA,  SS/KA as opposed to C/S,  SS/K

 

Tasca was a stick car with red interior.....

 

Gas had a two tone interior, looks like red and white or red and fawn or silver, if silver was available ?
