  • 1950 Champion Starlite Coupe - Carson City Nv.

    There is a rather nice maroon Starlite coupe in Carson City for sale. They want a premium price (5500.00) for a survivor, still it seems to be in rather good condition. The dealer claims to have replaced the clutch and throw-out bearing this week.
    The dealer's web-page link:

    Looks like a really nice start for someone who has the cash.

    That's a great tip on a solid car. I had business in Carson City a few years ago and stopped to look at a beautiful black '60 hardtop I found in the local Reno paper. It was a little pricey for a driver, too, but had zero rust issues. Nice local club member said they had a good group out there. I'm surprised this isn't a local club member selling it, unless it was traded in. Can't get much more of a dry climate car for a buyer than there if it's local.

      Very true about the environment. However, the downside is powdery paint and crispy upholstry. This one, however, photographs reasonably well.

        Well, we have the seats and door panels surrounded by a brown rash around here. It's all relative isn't it? 5k.. that's a very good head start for someone if reality holds up to the pictures.

          Thanks for the heads up!

          $5,500.00 a premium price? Naw, not on your life. If it runs/drives and it's as solid as it looks, even needing the interior cleaned up and a wax job, trust me, if I wasn't getting myself down to a bare minimum, it would be gone....

            As you say, Sonny. Still, one gets what they pay for, right? Anyway, as I said, a great start for someone with the cash.
