  • Nice '53 Starlight Coupe

    I know it isn't 100% stock, but it appears to be a super sweet car. The guy has owned it (and babied it) for 50 years. Pretty special.

    I agree Dick, not many like this left. Good thing I
    don't have plenty money.

      I would like to have it, but the first thing I would do is take the fog lights off and put the bumper guards back in their place.

        I would take both of them off. I like the clean look of just the bumper.

          NICE car that deserves to be further "enhanced" (plain bumper) with the clean look

              I saw this one up close and personal about a year ago.It is a really nice car,as good as it looks in the pics.Only thing I didnt like about it was the floor shift.The tires were old,they looked great but you would want to replace them before a long trip.Steve

                That car has me counting my pennies and wishing. If it was mine the fog lights would go and I would like some black plug wires on that nice clean engine, but otherwise I like it!

                  The car is beautiful and probably worth it. But I'm not making any big purchases due to the fact that I, and thousands of others, are taking a beating on Wall St.

                    The so-called Speedster wire wheel covers were first offered as a '53 accessory so they are correct on the car. See my '53-

                      Nice car....
                      But...
                      With all those guards hanging off the bumper it looks like a John Deere corn picker.

                            That style of wire wheel cover was an available option for 1953 through early 1956 models. They are often referred to as Speedster covers because they were standard, not optional, on 1955 Speedsters.

                              I missed the high bid. What was it and did it sell?
