        • Re: 11027, that's an Autocar Diesel made in Exton, PA blocking the intersection (along with the Buick and Starlight coupe).

            • Hmmm... the car behind the -59 Chevy; behind the tree to the right it looks like a fullsize -64 Chevy rear but to the left in the picture the windscreen/front roof looks like a Nova.

                I'll guess '53 Ford.

                    Side moulding says it's a 1954 Ford.

                      To the left, right beneath the "Coming and Going" sign on the wall, a '53-'54 4-door of some sort. Any others? BP

                        That site has another photo of the same lot taken from the opposite side. A '54 Conestoga appears to be just entering right next to the 'Trade Mart Grill'.

                        Another rarity is that '54 Crestline Skyliner parked in the corner of the lot with the optional Coronado continental tire.

                        • So if I get it right there's two 53-54 Fords in the picture: the one in front of the Studebaker + one behind the Chevy..?

                            Is it just my twisted mind or was a special place devoted to high end cars like the Crestliner and the Cadillacs? Much less fuss to get them out of the parking lot than if they were at the third row in the back.

                            • I think the Conestoga is parked & the 53-54 Dodge is on its way in behind the truck.
                              Then I wonder about a car on the other side of the street behind the line of cars parked by the sidewalk that starts with the Chrysler; there's the Chrysler, the Chevy, the truck & so on & then after the gap..?
                              Also the under the "1550 Nash" sign, betwen the De Soto & a car I can't name..? It looks like a convertible with white top.

                              • Noxnabaker, I also noticed the dark car with the white top under the Nash sign. Could be a late 40's Studebaker Convertible? Not positive, though.
