Re: Identify a car?

Speaker area is different. The Ford's speaker cover drops down towards the driver (indented.) other is smooth.

Hey that is very close even that little square molding divider between the trim at the base of the windshield. Is that car a '57?

I wonder if a '58 Ford wagon may have the speaker grill more flush mounted instead of recessed like the red one.

The reason I say that is Mom and Dad bought a new '58 Ford wagon. I remember it had the "woodie" look. He traded it off for a new 1960 GMC Suburban. That date doesn't necesarily mean the pic was taken in 1961 and the newest car I can identify is a '55 or '56 Buick.

I really thought maybe it was some of the wifes relatives as she found it in an old but never used photo album of hers. That was the only pic in it and it just fell out from between the pages. Neither of us had seen it before.

Thanks for all the help and ideas!!!!---DAC

Re: Identify a car?

Yes the Ford wagon was very similar and I almost posted that pic but I could not see if the wipers opposed. But it did have a speeker cover. Some of the Fairlane speekers were covered also.

Here is the only difference I can see from mine to yours that Bagged70c10 noticed earlier. Maybe the '58 wagon had that flush speaker grill? The speaker grill dimension also appears bigger, also maybe a '58 thing?

Re: Identify a car?

Here is the '58 ranch wagon that I almost posted last night but the dash is out of the vehicle and the wipers are not shown. it is probably the same dash just different options like a speaker cover.

I think that seals the deal! Thank-You Barn Owl, and everyone else that contributed to solving this mystery for me!

This pic can be labled with confidence that it was taken from Mom and Dad's '58 Ford Wagon!

Happy New Year everyone!---DAC

I didn't spend too much time on this page, but it seems awesome. Might find more info on cars like this. http://www.wheelsoftime.com/cart/gallery.html
