New to me 64 comet

Postby Jfox » Wed Jun 20, 2018 6:34 am

I just purchased a 64, on the door it has Caliente. Is there any way to tell by vin # if it is a true caliente? The vin shows it’s a four speed which it has but the motor is a built 302 and bucket seats are not original. Seems to be a solid car currently working on replacing brake lines wheel cylinder all the way around. Then gas tank and lines will be replaced. Then maybe I can drive it for while to see what future work I need to dogs

Welcome on ! the 3rd & 4th letter of the vin should be 23 for caliente. vin wont tell if it is a 4 sp, but if you have the original doortag on driverside door it will have a code telling if it was bench or bucket. but 5th letter of vin will tell what engine it came with.
