Can you post some pics?

For sure, assuming it's in decent shape, I'd prefer the 2-door 65 over the 4-door. Plus, the 65 was the new body style I think. So it looks faster

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.

Yes, hard decision. The 64 is local and the 65 is on Ebay therefore I am not able to see/drive in person and there is a shipping fee of $1K. The 64 I have seen in person and driven.

That's a cool '64, but if they were side by side, I'd go with the SS.

I have personally sworn off of buying vehicles on ebay sight unseen. They never are as good in person as they look in pictures.
