I'm glad to see the '53 & '54 Chevrolets get more recognition. They have lived under the shadow of the 55 - 57 years long enough. But I do remember back in those days we looked down on the 53 & 54 Chevrolets, they didn't have a V8 engine and they looked 'fat' compared to the '55. Now I'm so tired of seeing 57 Chevrolets (I prefer the '56 to the '57).
Anyway, here's a superb example of a 1953 woody station wagon, a very rare model. In fact I can't remember when I last saw one. This one is extremely well done, complete with surfboard, perfect for the upscale surfer dude.
Note the Olds wheel covers and the wide whitewall tires - nice touch!
