    1950 & '51 2dr pics & id

    I found 2 studes on line. One is looks like a 2dr coupe, maybe a business coupe, and has a rear seat & starlite back glass. (wrap around). (did they make bus. coupes with a rear seat?) The other one is a 1950 2dr, but has extra window in rear passenger area with no rear seat visible and starlite back glass. I know one is a champion. Are they desirable cars? Both look rough enough to be parts cars. I don't know the condition of the floor pans on either one.

    The 3 passenger coupe (business coupe) did not have a wrap around rear window, like a STARLIGHT coupe (5 passenger coupe), which is what you appear to be describing.
    You say that the second one has an "extra window in rear passenger area". This would be a two door sedan. Does your "no" also apply to what you call starlite (sic) [Starlight] back glass?
    If they are "rough enough to be parts cars", that should be how they are priced.

    If you give us the link to the on line pictures, we can tell you what they are and if they are valuable.

    If you are afraid that someone here will swoop in and steal your good deal, well... we probably won't.
