Sal Consiglio's 1955 Ford
1955 Ford owned by Sal Consiglio of New York City, New York. Sal lived in the Richmond Hill neighbourhood, and he was a member of the 1320 Crusaders car club. "The '55 Ford was John's, Sal’s brother’s, car, but he gave it to Sal when he bought a new Chevy 409," Ken Bausert told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2017. Sal was one of Ken's best friends in high school, and photos taken by Ken in 1962 shows it featuring canted quad headlights, a rolled rear pan, and 1955 - 1956 Mercury station wagon taillights; "Sal was a perfectionist and painted each panel of the car only after he made sure it was perfect. The canted headlights, the rear rolled pan and license plate treatment were all Woody's welding and fabrication, and then Sal was finishing it."
Sal sold the car circa 1963 - 1964 to buy a 1962 Pontiac Bonneville.
