    When I was a young 'un my job was to wax that front chrome on my father's '52 Champion. Every Saturday he would take us to the park and it would take me about two hours to do the job!!! My younger brother got the rear bumper to do. Ah, the memories that picture brought back. Good luck and enjoy the car!!!!!

It has always been one of my favorites back then and even now followed by the 52 hardtop. The one and only hardtop I had is now in Australia and just about finished with a full restoration. I have just made a deal on one of the best 52 hardtops still around, if you were at the Colorado Springs International meet then you saw it there , it took best of division, it will soon be in my 5 car garage . one very very nice car, glad to own it.
        You must mean this one. A very nice car indeed. Strange that I can't find my picture of the front.

          It may not look like much by that time, but I plan to be there.
