I just stumbled across this picture:

Why do I giggle you ask? Because I used to have one. In fact, it was the fist vehicle I ever bought myself.

It was actually a 1961 model not 1964, but there weren't a lot of differences between it and this one.
The most obvious difference between mine and this one is mine didn't have the decorative stripe down the side. It was all solid color.
Same color of red, but with chrome rims, non-factory 304 V-8 under the console, 3-on-the-tree transmission, black tonneau cover, black velvet upholstery. It was a hoot to drive.
As you can see, there is no hood on front of the thing, so when you would pull up behind a car leaving the usual foot or so between your front end and their rear end, it would feel like you were about to drive right into their ass-end.
That was my favorite trick when I had passengers. It used to scare the hell out of them. Until they got used to it, they would always be trying to slam on the brakes on the passenger's side floorboard. Of course, there were no brake pedals there to slam.

Cool truck. you don't see many around these days.

I saw something similar with a Volkswagon mini-bus..not sure if it was stock or not.

Yeah I use that invisible brake pedal all the time.

Yup, those make the passengers react the same way. :)
