Ford Crestline Sunliner (1952)

Customizing was always an art in which individual touches shone through. It's beauty was that virtually any body style could be chosen, though true customizing started in the 1950s so that's where many people choose their base material from. The Ford Crestline Sunliner from '52 wasn't chosen as often as the early post-war Fords, but even so it lent itself well to the treatment as the general body shape was very similar to the new-for-'49 model. This car has a host of extras, and in customizing the right type of extras are essential - things like upmarket hubcaps, whitewall tyres, grille teeth made from bumper overriders, A-pillar spotlamps and flames to give a real hot rod feel. The accessories inside are just as important, with fluffy dice hanging from the rear view mirror for luck, plus a tweaked dash with peaked switches. This car has also had a roof chop.
