History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Ford Crestline page on 15 November 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Ford Crestline is an automobile which was produced by Ford in the United States for models years 1952 to 1954.

1952

The Crestline was introduced as the top trim level of the 1952 Ford range, above the intermediate-level Customline and base level Mainline. It was offered in Victoria, Sunliner and Ranch Wagon versions with 2-door hardtop, 2-door convertible and 4-door station wagon body styles respectively. Crestlines were offered only with a 239 CID "L-head" V8 engine.

1953

The Crestline was updated with minor styling and trim changes for 1953. It retained its position as the top trim level in the Ford range while body styles and engine availability also remained unchanged.

1954

For 1954 the Crestline was again updated with minor styling and trim changes. Fordor Sedan and Skyliner versions were added, the latter being a 2-door hardtop with a tinted transparent panel in the front section of the roof. New 223 CID straight-six and 239 CID overhead valve V8 engines were offered.

The Crestline was replaced by the Ford Fairlane in the 1955 Ford range.
