  • LOVE this look!

    Condition aside, I love the red with all that trim! Do real Speedsters usually have all that chrome? The butterknife with that roof band look fantastic over red[]

    And then some.
    As stated, it's a clone. Just a '55 President.
    It's missing the standard Speedster wire wheels, fog lights, rear view mirrors and probably a bit of other stuff. And, there were no solid red Speedsters.

      He makes no secret it's a clone; but I LOVE that combo! Of course, I'm a chrome junkie anyway

        I'll bet I could wedge my 392 in it.

          Wouldn't have been a bad idea.

            I agree with you. I noticed the red and chrome right away when I looked at eBay. That could make a real eye catcher even if it's not a real Speedster.
