  2. Everything except for the louvers,,, louvers are great, but with the pictured car them seem to be an add-on or after thought.
    Go for it!

    I hate spotlights,
    Unless your lighting up the road for an illegal drag race...

    Remember, when the top goes down, the price goes UP !!!

    Always liked that car. I guess you had to have lived in that era to appreciate the louvers and spots. That's what made a custom back then.

    Yeah. I was scrolling through the photos, and BAM! lookit all those dash pinstripes. I really dig the car, but I dig being married more, and I know if I bring another one home I will have to live in it. I better leave this one for another HAMBer.;)

    the dash pinstripes are overboard for my taste.they were called ragtops for a reason that is a perfect example.after saying that I would find room for it and drive till the top was in tatters I did not see mention of what looks like a aluminum rad also 53 taillight lens minor points

    I had a 1953 Victoria, warmed over flathead V8 (last year for the flathead) two deuce Edmonds manifold and split exhaust with glass packs and a two speed Fordomatic. Original black body and cream top with factory skirts. I added whitewall radials cause it was my daily driver for three years. This was in the 80’s. You know what this is like to drive Ryan, just a tad bigger than your shoebox.

    Yeah .... had a 54 Skyliner glasstop running a 312/Fordomatic. I nosed/decked it, smoothed the bumpers, lowered it, and installed a tube grill. Nice pipes, wide whitewalls, and black steelies set the coral/white paint off nice. Traded it for my 54 Merc ragtop, but still miss it. 52-56 Fords are just plain cool.
