My very first car, the 1948, was purchased during the Winter of 1954 for $350. That Summer, I drove it to Maryland from Ohio to marry my college sweetheart. After the ceremony, we drove to Cooks Forrest, Pa for our honeymoon, then to my home area in Ohio.
That fall, we drove it back to Quincy, Mass to resume college as newlyweds. That Ford made many trips, in all kinds of weather, between Mass, Ohio and Maryland.
That green Ford never failed us.
