Greetings to all you '55 convertible owners. Question for you and I hope it isn't too unfair. I've been looking for a '55 ht/sedan recently and have across many '55 convertibles. More then I thought are out there. The prices seem to be all over the charts. Ranges from$50,000.00 upwards to a few listed at 6 figures. Many are around $55-$60 thousand dollars; closer to the 60. For the purpose of this thread, lets say a '55 convertible is rated at a #2 in condition. Not necessarily a trailer queen but one that can be driven needing just a little cosmetics and TLC. I have no pics to show anyone, but I was curious as to what in your opinion, that price range might be?? How broad a range is it?? Just curious, Carmine.
I too have followed some of the prices and yes they are not steady.
Other members have been fortunate enough to either stumble across a rag top for much less, or know of one locally, there the ones to look out for.
In original run down condition but a driver you would be looking around the 20K.
Problem you have is folks are aware that you could get big dollars $50K plus so these are the wish price that gets thrown around waiting for some bites
Out of boredom this afternoon, I was looking at '55 convertibles at various sites. Hemmings seems to have a fair amount. They were in the price range of $55,000-to the low 60's. I only saw one that I would have ever considered paying the asking price of $65,000.00 for. The others, no. But this car was beautifully restored. It was just outstanding. It even had some type of paint marks on the coil springs. This owner spared no expense. This would be too much for me. I could never keep it in this condition. Moot point anyway. I'm not about to buy it. I always like to look though, Carmine.
