YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

This 1952 Ford Mainline business coupe was seen yesterday in the Town of Newstead as I was test driving a new Mini Paceman for an upcoming You Auto Know column. In 1952 Ford was in Year One of a three-year styling cycle, which ushered-in a new group of model names: Mainline, Customline, and Crestline; the latter series contained the only convertible offered, plus the wood-grained Country Squire station wagon. Okay, so this one may need a bit of paint work, and a bit of re-chroming, but it looks to be pretty complete on the outside (which is more than you can say for some 61-year-olds).

    That Mainline’s perfect rat rod material. After squaring away the mechanicals [making certain there was a fresh flathead under the hood], I’d do some minimal touch up and drive it as is.
