A 50th anniversary Ford

This 1953 Ford was found in retirement in Nevada. 1953 was Ford's 50th anniversary and the big news for 1953 was the availability of power-assisted brakes and steering, which had previously been limited to the Mercury and Lincoln lines. Ford sold 1,247,542 cars in 1953, trailing Chevrolet by about 99,000 units for sales supremacy.
