    I would guess that the Speedster, being a hardtop, coupe is the pre-wraparound?

      No, the C and K bodies (coupe and hardtop), like your Speedster, did not have a windshield change to wraparound (thankfully) during their entire run (1953-1964). What we are discussing here is sedan bodies which had a windshield style change to wraparound during the 1955 model year.

        However, if you believe the shop manuals, the V-8 engines changed at the exact same time as the sedan windshields, so the break point is still useful when talking about C-Ks. However when talking about a Speedster it already had all the "good stuff" so the only reason I brought it up was to say that it apparently did NOT have any relevance to engine color (as I have a "late" commander that had apparently been painted Alberta Blue - or else the power steering pump is not original.)
