The 1952 models were really made over ’51s. Body designs were the same, the main differences being the grille and placement of body chrome. The dashes were idendical. The 51’s had a choice of 8 colors as opposed to 13 for the ’52s. The colors of the car pictured are Admiral Blue over Twilight blue. Production of 52’s was down 21.5 percent from 1951 due to the Korean war which accounts for our seeing more ’51s around than 52’s. I can tell you from personal experience the 52’s were very durable as were the 51’s as I owned both models.
