      here was mine in its driver state. Its been deep freezed since then with many ongoing projects. 340 mill #2 in there. The front seats were rebuilt so they are a little more cushy as my originals were rock hard and turning to powder.

                I'm having an issue deciding about painting mine. The gold looks good, but the ivory looks amazing. Mine was originally gold on gold

                I really like both colors. I'm more an original fan and I think that gold on gold looks really cool. But on the other hand my alltime favorite combination would be Ivory with the gold interior and also the golden stripe... Hard decision... In my opinion, I think it depends on how ori your car is.

                  I also think that gold looks more elegant while ivory makes the car look wider. So it also depends on what style you prefer;-)

                    Very tough call. Sold her 2 yrs. ago and my 65 cuda was not ivory but ww1 white with gold interior. Really looked great but must say my 64 with the gold on gold just pops better. Have not had her out much yet but people are literally almost wrecking looking at it go by.lol.

                      I really like the way this looks, but also considered gold on gold with black stripes my car is an original 65 formula S.

                          Someone said that the gold was the rarest color on a Barracuda. I have not been able to find any number on colors in 65. I do know the few that I see here in North Carolina are white, ivory, or red. I have only seen one gold which had stopped to purchase gas. Wasn't from North Carolina though

                                Ive loved looking at this thread this morning after finding it.
                                Some beautiful early A bodies on here.
                                Heres a pic of my 1964 273 non comando auto. Slight motor upgrades but still the original 273.
                                Still a work in progress.

                                          She's still a little rough around the edges, but I've been non-stop replacing parts and slowly restoring her to full functional condition. The (non-original) engine that came with the car was too far gone for me to currently afford the extensive machining required to get it up to spec, so until then I plan on installing a recently rebuilt 318 with a 4bbl intake this weekend. Can't wait for the day it'll be up and running again.
