    It's been thoroughly vacuumed. But, as a re-paint missing the A/C compressor, it'll be interesting to see if he gets that kind of money for it

    Not priced at what I would call 'crazy money'..... This should sell quite easily once he finds a buyer. I'd be VERY interested if I had the money.

    I also do not consider the asking price to be Crazy Money for its condition & options. The 8-Lug "Grand Prix Wheels" ( I have never herd of 8-Lug Wheel & Brakes described that way before) are around $3000 USD in restored and Complete working condition. And more if the Spare wheel and Hold down are included.

    Those 8-Lug wheels and drums are only that expensive, because of the demand for them. As an option, how much was added to the sticker price, back then?

    Ok that's like saying Shelby Mustangs are only that expensive because of the demand for them, how much were they when new?

    According to one image of a window sticker I found, the 8-lug wheels were a $122.13 option in 1964.
    That compares with $430.40 for the air conditioning.
    Note: This is a made-up window sticker for a well-loaded '64 Catalina Ventura, that an owner added even MORE equipment to, and then made up the 'what if' window sticker. The guy did a lot of research, so I would assume that pricing is fairly correct for the date it was built.

    You would think that the heavy duty drums would come standard with a 421 Tri-Power package, not forgetting that muscle cars were expensive to insure. Being able to prove to an insurance company that the vehicle to get insured was capable of stopping itself should have lowered his premiums, in case the heavy duty brake/drum package was indeed an option to the 421 Tri-Power

    Those 'heavy duty (brake) drums WERE the 8-lug wheels. They were, for all intents and purposes, an integral wheel/brake drum package.
