Vintage TRULY NOLEN: 1955 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan & 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Sedan









I had no idea that the vehicular roots of TRULY NOLEN ran so deep.  I've seen the Toyota Yaris and VW Beetle adorned with mouse ears and a curly tail.  After spotting these classics, I looked around the web and found many vintage vehicles advertising TRULY NOLEN.  Nice to see they've hung on to some of them.  Particularly the first year Fairlane.

1960 Studebaker Champ





Like many born in the '50s, the Champ was produced by dissimilar donors during uncertain times. Trying to introduce a new pickup line amid a steady decline in sales, Studebaker dealt with production budget constraints by bolting the front half of a Lark cab to the an existing truck chassis with very little modification. Attaboy Champ.

1949 Chrysler Royal






Spending some time looking over this glorious machine reminds one just how far downhill things have slid in the design studios of Detroit.
