  • New member pics-53 Commander

    I'm setting this up for my dad Lyle. He's less than computer savvy aye.
    So this is his car, a 53 commander. Not sure of all the designations, I believe a starliner .
    It's close to going to the paint booth. It has an Art Morrison front and a '61 Vette 283 and th350.

    Very cool project Lyle! Ya got "Rattler" stuff on the the dash and I like the fuse panel set-up! You have a '53 Starliner (at least the tail lights seem to show this) for sure. Whats the front-end look like? Is there a tag on the L.H. side of the firewall with any numbers? Also, are there any numbers on a tag on the door jam on the drivers door? I'd be interested... Ya gotta' get Chevy off the steering wheel though... graft on a Stude emblem somehow... Please?

      Great looking project Lyle. Simply cannot beat the styling of the early C/K's. Looking forward to seeing more photos as you progress. Your dad will be pleasantly surprised. tempestan

        The tail lights show that the car is a 1953 Starliner (K) or 1953 Starlight (C). You can not tell a Starliner from a Starlight by the tail lights. However, the car is a Starliner (hardtop - K body),not a Starlight (coupe - C body).
        The body tag should be on the right hand side of the engine side of the firewall, near the right hood hinge.
        The serial number tag is on the left A-pillar.

          I think Steve was trying to say~

          "The tail lights tell us it's a '53"

            I guess that we have determined your new occupation - mind reader <G>. This is not the first time that you have put forth your belief of the meaning of what someone else means in their post.
            I would think that if that is what he was trying to say, that is what he would have said.

              I'm really sorry Lyle. (and Steve)
              But this post needs to be dealt with~

              Nor is it yours~ I don't get it~ What is your point???
              I would think that if that is what he was trying to say, that is what he would have said.
              Or, he could have looked at the pictures and saw what I did- a hardtop body, and '53 tail lights- ya think??? I do.
              He just used fewer words then you did.

                Good looking project. That is one big snake skin glued to the dash. Did you catch it?
