Ron Lerdahl's 1952 Ford Convertible
1952 Ford Convertible restyled by Vern at A-1 Auto Body for Saints of Salt Lake City member Ron Lerdahl of Salt Lake City, Utah. By 1958 Ron's convertible had been radically lowered on all four corners, and the rear fenders had been extended and fit with 1956 Packard taillights, giving the car a longer appearance. The car was nosed, decked and shaved for door handles and emblems. The headlights were frenched using the stock headlight rings. A 1954 Chevrolet grille was installed.Dual spotlights had been installed along with Oldsmobile Fiesta hubcaps. The dashboard and sun visors were pinstriped. Eventually the convertible received a glossy black paint job. As the Saints of Salt Lake City slowly died, Ron became a member of the Crusaders of Salt Lake City while he owned the car.
