Caveat: Option quantities/prices vary from resource to resource.

It is important to note the items listed and the quantity represent the item individually when ordered as an option and not when they may have come as standard equipment or in a convenience or appearance group on certain models. All costs listed are 1964/65 dollars. Dealers may have charged more (or less) for some options depending on the time of year as costs did fluctuate and some option costs varied depending on the series/model being installed on.

Line items with orange bar are items shown on some dealer new car records but not shown as options reported by GM.
