          • From Sylvan Beach NY, early 50s. Originally opened in 1934. Was frequented by stars like Duke Ellington, Dezi Arnaz, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra. As a kid, we ate there many times. We had lunch there today; looks like it did in the 70s. This is a picture of a picture on their wall.

                • Check out the Photo in Post #459, above.

                  We all see the '56 Power or Flight Hawk on the lower street.

                  But look on the upper level, on the far side of the overpass: What is the odd white 4-door car with black RR tire and no wheel cover, immediately outside the 1956 Ford station wagon, headed in the same direction as the Ford?

                  Strange; 'can't figure it out. BP

                  • That roofline puts me in mind of Kaiser. Or maybe a Frazier?

                    • I'm thinking '54 Ford, but it sure is hard to tell.

                      • When I blow the picture up the car looks like a Ford to me too. I would have to compare the profile to some other pictures though. Did Ford build a body like that?

                        • I don't think it's a mid-50s Ford of any type. The side molding is too high on the body.

                          The 1954 Ford Customline series has a full-length, body side stainless-steel molding, but it is right down the center of the side, not that high. BP

                            • Bob P, I thought it was a 55 Plymouth in spite of a bit of Lark look.

                                My guess is that it's a low-line '52-'54 Mercury.
