Did I miss where the CCCA suddenly revised their criteria?

 

 

 

Happens a lot.   Am I missing something or are most of those pictures of another car?

Except the first which is a 61 and the subject car I believe. 

 

 

Whenever I'm selling a car I like to mix in random pictures of my other similar but not the same car to keep potential purchasers on their toes.

I'm not following this ad at all. Why post five pictures of a 62 Coupe when you're selling a 1961 Convertible? The coupe looks rusty (bad rusty underneath?) and I was thinking maybe it's a parts car but there's very little commonality from 61 to 62 in body parts & trim. Is the price for one car or two? And why is it listed in the Classic Car Club of America Forum?

Sorry, I am posting the car for my dad and posted the wrong photos by accident. I have updated the post with the correct photos. 

 

Much better.  Neat car.  Good luck.

Isn't the 1961 Starfire the model where the full wheelcovers did not have a hole for the tire valve to "poke" through,

and one had to remove the wheel cover to check tire pressure?
 

I haven’t heard that before, but I guess it’s possible. Easy enough to fix: CB356906-C341-44B2-8FDF-6E1D313ECDFA.jpeg.5f496f92fa151cace05b60c0135126a2.jpeg

You "COULD" do that,

but why would you ruin an exceedingly rare and expensive part, just for convenience?

 

Maybe use a more conventional cover for other-than-concourse purposes?

Actually 1957-1960 and 1962-1963 Olds Deluxe hubcaps were held on by those special clips. 1961 caps had holes in them for the valve stems to poke through.

Thanks for the correction

Some details fade with years while others just glare back at us
