I wonder what happened to the vertical door bump strips on the edges of the doors? Or...is it a different car?

could just be the way they are gathered, but the valances in the rear side windows differ from the original, as I said, could just be the way they are gathered. On second look, the entire back window drapery had been replaced.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty,and some are dull.Some have weird names, and all are different colors. But they all have to live in the same box.

In both pictures the cars are definitely 64. Note the boomerang shape of the taillight bezel,the 63 bezel is stright. The only difference I can see is a dark strip on the rocker panel of the old picture,the new picture shows more white and the old car appears to have fender flags

Looking at all the other pictures, without question the curtains are different or have been replaced.

I would imagine things like the curtains would have been replaced over time from rot, much like the tires, hoses, belts, etc

It's not a '65 Impala; I don't think there are many '64 hearses 'sitting in junkyards' in 2010. But the 'proof' thing is an interesting point.

If asking was getting, I'd be a happy man. The Oswald Checker cab didn't bring much at all at the Pate auction.

I had the honor to personally inspect this car and interview the person repping the vehicle at a 2007 World Wide Auction in Houston. He had been an employee of the O'Neal funeral home on 11/22/63, and was at Parkland when the President's car arrived. The car being offered was a very early production 1964 model unit, and was one of the first Miller-Meteor units for 1964. It is the real deal, no questions on this one. The coach was used in regular service up to the 1990's, so there were a few minor changes, such as the curtains, tires, etc.
