The Ford & Mercury Restorers Club of America had their annual show a couple of weeks ago in Belleville, Michigan. The poster that I’d seen for the show said there were going to be many Mustangs. While I have nothing against the original pony car I went to the show hoping to find some cars that you don’t see at every car show. I think this mildly customized 1953 Ford two door station wagon qualifies. I’m partial to light metallic blues and the color shows off this wagon’s trim and economical lines rather well. The blackwall tires on the ’60s style Torq Thrust wheels give it just the right slightly menacing look and stance. Collectors have long gravitated to the “tri-five” Chevys and Fords from 1955, 1956 and 1957, and the ’57 Chrysler products with Virgil Exner Sr’s groundbreaking “forward look” cars are very collectible, all with good reason. I think this has resulted in cars from the early ’50s being somewhat overlooked. That’s unfortunate because, as this Ford wagon shows, there were some very attractive cars from that era.
