I was talking to a member here a couple of nights ago and may have told him something wrong and want to run it past some of you guys that WILL know.
I have always been under the impression that Fireball died in a 1963 1/2 Galaxy and that is the latest car he ever drove. Does anyone know if he ever drove the '64 Galaxie (like Tiny's Hallmark car) or if the fastback-window '63 was his last car?

Thanks,
John

Fireball drove a 64 until his crash at Charlotte in the 64 World 600. If I'm not mistaken it was Regency Purple.

Fireball Roberts died on July 2 from injuries received in the 1964 World 600 on May 2 driving a Holman Moody prepared 1964 Ford Galaxie he had switched to that team 18 months before.

Yep, Racing Reference listed it as a '64 also.
Thanks. That straightens out a misconception I've had since I started modeling.
