Dashboards and controls were simpler in the 1950s.
Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.
How proud owner was when the car was new. Everything has its own time and for this it has passed.

And no back-up cameras! Nice find. I learned to drive in an old 1953 Ford Mercury 1/2 ton truck. Gear shift on the column. I had to half stand up to push in the clutch. I was around 10. We learn young on the farm.

It's good to see the controls of a previous time. A fine highly detailed picture of this interior. Well done.

@sherri: Thanks for your visit. I was unable to reach http://www.pearweed.net
It seems like this steering wheel was quite oversized for its time compared to those of today. The driver's side window intrigues me.

@Steven: with no power steering, you needed as much leverage as possible, and a large wheel helped. When I passed my driving test, an essential skill was the "three point turn." You had to be able to do a u-turn on a standard city street with only one backup... and it wasn't easy.
I like the dingy windows and the pretty clean looking steering wheel.
