  • Interior: Venetian blinds

    What is a reasonable price for a used, in good condition set of venetian blinds to fit a 1951 Studebaker starlight coupe?

    Ron, are you referring to the type of adjustable venetian blinds that open and close or to the wider fixed metal louvers/slats that help shade the interior but do not close? I've seen adjustable venetian blinds in '50s cars in the past, but not for a very long time. Do you have a set? -- Don

      Are you buying or selling? I sold a NOS set probably 20 years ago for $600. They are VERY hard to find.

        Adjustable blinds are something I can't remember ever seeing. I got the set in my '51 from Matt Burnette when he was helping Maureen Elliott dispose of parts after Tom died. Adjusting those require you individually bend each slat; and I would think loose adjustable slats would be incredibly noisey when the vehicle is in motion.
        If anyone has a reference to an adjustable set I would be curious.
