I was looking for any information on my car that I am restoring (889465) your car is the nearest number I could find. The car was first reg. in California early 1964 (J64) and I purchased the car in Australia from the importers about 4 years ago.
The car had many parts missing but It is almost fully restored now.
One of the missing items is the hatch latch cover. I have seen the covers that go down to and over the wheel arch, is this the type of cover your car has ( none of the books metion these covers)
Look forward to hearing from you
