  • New 54 Starlight

    Dick and I partnered up on this 54 Starlight I found near him. Here's the pics before Dick does his magic. They're still out there, just waiting to be put back on the road.

        Don't know the county, just found it on Craig's list and asked Dick to look at it for us since he was nearby.

            Nope...Anacortes (Skagit County). The old guy had owned it for several years and was just essentially storing it at this point. It's a NICE Starlight Coupe. 6 stick OD hillholder.

                Good. Would've broke my heart if it was the one I thought.
                His may be a Commander, now that I think about it.
                Nevermind.

                    The Starlight cleaned up real nice...







                    ...but runs and drives even nicer...

                    http://youtube.com/watch?v=zqO5LTKTwdI


                    This one was fun and satisfying. It will be a great little car for someone. OD, hillholder, refurbed radio and rare rebuilt Champion clock. We'll have it on eBay this weekend.

                        Looks like it has a '53 arm rest in the rear seat?

                            Yep. It also has the '53 tail lights. I know the '53 tail lights were used on '54 Coupes until the factory exhausted the supply. I wonder if the same happened with the '53 rear seat armrests?
