The Ford Crestline , was a car which was manufactured in the model years 1952 to 1954 by Ford in the United States.
This was one of the successor to the Ford Custom Deluxe and represented the top model. Unlike his simpler equipped sister models Mainline and Customline , this was initially available only with the strengthened flathead V8 engine of its predecessor, which from 3917 cc displacement of 110 bhp (81 kW).
The vehicles were available as 2-door convertible, 2-door hardtop sedan (Victoria) or as a 5-door station wagon with 8 seats. The models took over the pontoon form of the predecessor and showed the typical globe, which was already known from the 1950 model year, in the grill.
In 1953, the Crestline was further developed with only the slightest cosmetic changes. 1954 did not change much in appearance, but the Crestline was now also available with the new six-cylinder in-line engine, the 3654 cc capacity 115 bhp (85 kW). The V8 engine boosted to 130bhp (96kW) to maintain the necessary distance. In addition to the three known body styles, there was in this last year of production, a second 2-door hardtop sedan (Skyliner) with glass roof over the front seats and a 4-door sedan.
In three years, 540,211 copies were made. In the model year 1955, the new model Fairlane replaced the Crestline.
