This Crestline Sunliner convertible comes with a 239-cid flathead V-8 engine and a new two-barrel carburetor and new fuel pump. Also equipped, is the optional overdrive Ford-O-Matic transmission and optional correct Continental kit in the rear. The odometer shows 31,217 miles and is believed to be accurate. Other than a respray of the original color (Sheriden Blue), this car is mostly original.
The 1953 Ford Crestline was largely the same as the previous year, with a slightly simpler grille and different brightwork on the car’s side. Body choices and prices were essentially the same, as was the powertrain. Power steering became a welcome option for this model year.
