  • '54 Starliner H/T: Overall Dimensions and Weight?

    I'm certain someone out there can point me to a source for the physical dimensions and weight of the '54 Starliner Hardtop Coupe. I need to know if the one I'm looking at will fit into my garage with my '63 Avanti under it - on a four post lift, of course.

    Is there a handy place I can go to get that info? Thanks, all.

      Some times those old charts put out by Stude for shipping purposes are not right. Dimension wise yes, but not weight. Figure a 53 to 55K to weigh between 3,400 and 3,500 lbs. in street trim.

        You do not state if the '54 Starliner is a Commander or Champion. The length will be the same, but the weights will be quite different.

          You are correct. Champion Starliner, 6 cylinder with three-speed transmission.

              The dry shipment weight is 2825 pounds. Options and liquids will add to this.
