    In today’s mail was an envelope containing three old photos, including this image of my grandfather, wearing his hat cocked atop his head, as was his habit.

    Anyone here able to ID the model of the car, going on what little of its interior features we see here? He was partial to FoMoCo products, Fords and Mercurys (but not Lincolns; too rich for his blood), and I’m fairly confident this is the former, a ’53 or a ’54 version, but I’m at a loss as to model.

    1954 Ford customline dashboard view. The knobby things below the speedo look like grandpa's.

    The '53 dash looks quite different.

    I see! And the steering wheel spokes on the ’54 are closer to directly opposite each other.
