Mfg’s grills

Recommended Posts

I find it interesting how closely how closely The grills and auto body designs are so similar going back decades. My 53 Plymouth has the “teeth” so does the ‘53 chevrolet, etc. I can recall few break out of the box designs. I think the 49 Ford was one, the 56 Pontiac “Wide track”, American Motors unibody, and curved side windows, More recently the Mack Truck Dodge grills to name a few. What others occurred?

Will not until the 58 Edsel came out.

Tail fins in the mid and late 50's. They were all gone by the beginning of the '60's. Starting in '58, everyone had to have quad headlights too, to be "cool".

Amazing how that "horse-Collar" grill that also was referenced as part of the female anatomy just destroyed the sales of what was actually an "ahead of it`s times" car. It became synonymous with being a loser and Don Knots used a droptop Edsel as his ride in both The Andy Griffin Show and movie The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

How about a Chrysler Airflow or a '48 Tucker for breakout designs?
