1953 Ford Crestline modificado

„The Crestline Victoria . . . you’ll say it’s merely terrific!“

Here’s a genuine Cuban Classic: a chopped up Ford Crestline Victoria from 1953 that wears the front grille of a 1954 and the trim of a 1955 model, and somehow anticipates a Ford Ranchero. You couldn't buy that factory pickup sedan from Ford before 1957. However, Cuban metal crafters managed to create a convincingly looking pickup conversion here.

Over time, many vintage cars on the island changed their appearance out of necessity, usually to cover the constant lack of proper transportation: sedans were converted into station wagons, or became pickups, trucks changed into buses and former diesel railcars into passenger coaches.
