Australian 1957 Ford Customline Sedan. This is the car that Ford Australia sold for 1957, as they didn't want to go to all the expense of tooling up for the all new 1957 Fords. These Australian 1957 Fords were called Customline, and not Fairlane, as you can see on the Plastic Trim on the Trunk Lid.

Australian 1934 Ford Sedan with 1932 Ford rear door added for comparison. It appears that Ford Australia modified the 1932 Ford Sedan Body to use as 1933 and 1934 Ford Sedans. In hindsight, it was not a good look.

Regular 1939 Ford Deluxe V8 Hubcap with a similar shaped one with the Ford script and no V8 emblem. This one was used only on the Ford Commercials powered by an alternative to the regular Ford V8 engine.
