When the 1953 Studebaker Starlight Coupe came out back in the day it was the most aerodynamic automotive design ever seen. Although not appreciated enough by the buying public to boost Studebaker into the company of the Big Three automotive makers, it was a stunning example of Yankee ingenuity. Today these Studebaker aerodynamic coupes are a perfect base for ground breaking custom creations. Here is a ’53 being offered for sale by Brandon Classics on St Simons Island, Georgia. (Click here to review the ad and photos.) Even Hurricane Mathew couldn’t mess with this beauty. It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Saturday. The asking price is only $18,900.
The DEAL of the DAY preview gives you first shot at all the cars that will be highlighted in the DEAL of the DAY feature on the Cars On Line home page. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page! You’ll always see them here first though.

Ground up restoration of a solid rust free Studebaker just completed with test miles only. 1953 was first year for the 2-Door Hardtop Coupe. This car features new paint, chrome, engine rebuild, clutch, all new interior, brakes, exhaust system, radiator, tires & wheels plus so much more.
We have priced this car very realistically when you take into consideration all the work that was done to make this car beautiful again. Want something a little different to cruise around in, look no further. This is a great looking 50’s car with just the right amount of a custom touch without going overboard.
