Ford introduced all-new models for 1952, beating rival Chevrolet to the punch by a full year. The Crown Victoria, commonly known as “Glasstop Vicky”, became the company’s mid-market entry, and it featured a more modern style, including a wraparound windshield, curved rear glass, a modified grille, glass roof and more ornamentation to break up the earlier “Shoebox” look that Ford was known for.
There were only 1999 of these models built at the factory and are indeed a rarity. This stunning unmolested example sports a dealer installed option of the glass roof, its original interior with one exterior repaint.
A mechanically sound, original car with all the necessities.
