What are your Speedster colors, and can you post a picture of it?

I no longer own it, but I did own a tri-color (Neopolitan ice cream) Speedster, that was an all original car, for several years. It was not repainted or anything else, except that the tires (and probably battery) had been changed. I will offer what help that I can based on that. Please keep in mind that 1955 Speedsters assembled in California varied from cars assembled in Indiana (paint, trim).

I have been hoping that more owners would respond. I have owned nine Speedsters over the years. I still own my second car (bought in 1964, restored through the 70's). Send a PM if you want to talk.-Bill

My Dad bought a 55 Speedster in 1964 for my older Brother to drive to high school. I drove it for 2 months before wrecking it in Oct 1965. I still have the speedometer and wire wheels covers.
My Brother and I turned into a convertible.
Eventually, it went behind the Barn for 20 yrs.
