Dashboards and controls were simpler in the 1950s.

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.

A fabulous image. I love the detail. There are so many interesting textures. I love the broken windows!

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.
