CC Kids: Pre-Powerglide PRNDL

Kids PRNDL in 57a

Greetings from PRNDL in 1963! Back when I was still good looking. 🙂

This is my dad’s 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 hardtop. He owned this from about ’62 or ’63 up until ’65 when he got rear-ended and the trunk smashed like a tin can. I have a 1964 Ohio plate that I dug out of the family garage a couple of years ago that may have been on this very car. (Alas, no photos to support that theory.)

The second pic is me and my Mom. The colors were Coral Sand and Colonial White. Try as I might, I just can’t find those colors on in very many web pics.

If Junqueboi has one of those Ford hubcaps, I’d like to buy it from him… It’d look cool next to that ’64 plate.

Thanks for the coolest car site going!
