YAK Car Pic of the Day

It was almost 46 years ago, March 21, 1966 on the Andy Griffith Show, when the episode titled “The Foster Lady” first aired. Aunt Bee manages to get herself in a commercial for Foster’s Furniture Polish, and naturally things don’t go quite according to plan. And in the episode we get a glimpse of this 1959 Ford Custom 300 airport limousine. I never knew such a car existed until seeing this one. It’s thought to have been manufactured by Armbruster & Company of Fort Smith, Arkansas (read more about them here). The Custom 300 seems like a curious choice for a limo, as it sat at the bottom of the Ford line in ’59, but, there you have it.
