Jewel in the industrial desert

This early fifties Ford Customline has rolled through eleven US Presidents, trundled in and out of eight states along Route 66, and now finds itself clashing fenders with British rep mobiles in Corby, Northamptonshire.

Classics DrivenSpotted parked at Rockingham Raceway, you couldn’t help but be mesmerised by the Patina on this evocative V8 American dream machine. With “Las Vegas” faintly visible on the front doors, this rumbling relic obviously has some stories to tell.

The question is, how long will the salty UK roads allow the story to continue? A bumper sticker on the pitted chrome work reads “No, I ain’t gonna paint it” so perhaps not too much longer.

What a beauty – I seriously wanted to take this home.
