    Position #1 is the engine code (A = 223 Six, U = 239 V-8); Position #2 is always 4 for the year 1954.

    Position #4 is the product series code (G = Customline and Mainline, F = Crestline Skyliner; C = Crestline Sunliner; V = Crestline Victoria; T = Crestline sedans; R = Mainline Ranch Wagon; W = Customline Ranch Wagon; X = Country Sedan; Y = Country Squire)

    Mainlines do not have any stainless side trim,Customlines do, also most Mainlines do not have the stainless trim in the rubber around the windshield.This will help more than anything just click this and scrolldown: www.oldcarandtruckpictures.com/Ford/1950-1958.html Also if you are now a '54 Ford owner you should join the 1952-56 Ford owners social group,we are very active with lots of info to share('54 Customline owner myself) and group moderator.
