    All years Starlight will fit but the holes for the handle are drilled differently. Sedans will not fit.

      50pete. Welcome to the forum!

      There are basically two sizes of 47-52 trunk lids. The starlight coupe and the business coupe lid is an inch or so longer than the sedan/convertible lid. They will interchange as long as you stay within the same group.

        So Pete, welcome the forum and feel free to ask away and post all of the pics you want.
        No need to ask me anything, I don't know much, but the Guru's are here for sure.

          First - Welcome!
          Second - to get you off on the right foot - it is Starlight, not "starlite".
