After much consternation, I’ve decided to put my 1964 Sebring I up for sale. It has U.S. gauges with a speedometer in MPH. The speedometer reads 23581 miles which may or may not be correct.. I’ve put less than 3000 miles on it in the 7 years of my ownership and the previous owner put less than 500 miles in his 6 years of ownership.
When I purchase the Sebring all four floor pans had some rust in them. Evidently, water had collected on the floor pans in the past and had been left standing for a period of time. All the metal on the front and rear floors pans and inner rockers were replaced with heavier gauge sheet metal. The floor pans were beaded as per original for additional strength. All replaced metal surfaces were coated with POR-15 before being painted satin black.

The body was painted a single stage polyurethane red. Many pieces of chrome trim were re-plated. This is one of the few that had factory installed over-riders on both bumpers. The interior was essentially missing and needed to be acquired. Original seats and door panels were procured, but didn’t exactly fit (hand built cars, of course). A lot of fabrication and modification was required for a perfect fit. All surfaces were recovered in the original PAC 1544 Connolly off-white leather. The carpets were fitted with high quality black Rolls Royce Wilton wool. The headliner was replaced as were the dash covering, the transmission cover and the rear package shelf. The hood and trunk lid bottoms are covered in black diamond stitched material as are the saddle gas tank covers and the front trunk section. The trunk floor is also covered in black Wilton carpet.

The original Borrani RW3823 16x6” original wire wheels (all 5) were polished and fitted with a new set of 215x65 radial tires and tubes for good drivability. The engine is a 3500cc with Weber 42DCOE8 carburetors and the correct air filter. The radiator has been refurbished and the water pump has been recently rebuilt. The transmission is the original ZF S5-17 5 speed. It shifts nice and crisp. The rear end ratio is 3.77 The original front shocks have been restored and a new heavy duty sway bar and polyurethane bushings installed. The suspension and undercarriage are detailed.
The water temp, oil pressure and ammeter gauges have been restored.
