My Grandpa says this car is a '55 Ford Crown Victoria, but after looking at a few pics on the web it is clearly not... can anyone help me figure out what it really is?

Frosco is right. 1951 has the flat top grille opening. Looks to be in fairly good shape for sitting. Could be a fun project.

Thanks for the help... yes I am seriously considering fixing this car up this summer since i pretty much finished up on my '64 Chevy over the winter and am driving it every day now. The coolest thing is it is already set up for a SBC and chevy auto tranny so i will be treading on some familiar territory in those areas. Thanks again!

jesus, get that thing out of there!!! Why do people do this to cars?! If I had a bunch of cars like that I would at least put up a cheap pavilion to keep big stuff off of them... old cars are a finite resource!!!!!!
