Lmaoooo @carl, no shit eh!

L6.4 referred to the Chrysler 383 under the hood. I was wondering why it isn't a Dual-Ghia since that was the company name starting in '61.
Adam Thomson Feb 03, 2013
It looks ok. But there are better looking cars.
Ben Hislop Feb 02, 2013
I think I can see the King of Los Vegas sitting in the driver's seat

Wow, guys! Dual Ghia is the corporate name of the business set up to produce these cars, which were celebrity favorites going back to the mid-50's. Not just the L6.4! Mopar drivetrains, Ghia bodies, but these were not Chrysler or Ghia products.!
Mark Hammer Feb 02, 2013
About $114,000 dollars...
Ryan Lopez Feb 02, 2013
6.4 and 300hp hmmm there's room for more
Justin Routh Feb 02, 2013
Yeah that is alot. The mustang was like $2400 or $2500 base price in 1965
Phil Johnson Feb 02, 2013
A lot! Considering cars sold new for around 2 grand back then...
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Feb 02, 2013
Anyone know how much that would be today with inflation?

Looks like the only thing Barris actually changed on this was the headlights. They were never a Barris trademark though.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Feb 02, 2013

Tim Preisinger Feb 02, 2013
Awesome! I would love a ride in this... Not like it would ever happen
Logan Delony Feb 02, 2013
Those gauges are really cool
Dan Morris Feb 03, 2013
Seat belts where mandatory for the 73 or 74 model years. It depends on your state laws but if the car didn't come with them then you don't have to add.
Debdoub Tin Feb 02, 2013
No need for seatbelts it's a grandfathered in.
Justin Routh Feb 02, 2013
No you dont have to add them. Cars before i think '63 (could be wrong) arent required to have them
Logan Delony Feb 02, 2013
Cars that old didnt have seat belts usually. My studebaker doesn't. You'd have to add then to be street legal
Dale Schroeder Feb 02, 2013
First thing I've noticed: no seat belts whatsoever.
Graham Young Feb 02, 2013
That sure looks about 20 years ahead of its time It's very nice...
Adam Thomson Feb 03, 2013
I agree someone have placed a knife as a gear lever
Avery Williams Feb 02, 2013
Looks like someone stuck a knife in the gear shift.
Drew Humphrey Feb 02, 2013
