1955 Ford Sedan: Vehicle for Family History

Filed under: Podcasts and Slideshows — Matt Anderson @ 8:45 am

Collections Curator Matt Anderson presents the story of a 1955 Ford Sedan MHS acquired for the Minnesota’s Greatest Generation exhibit. The car was purchased new, and then driven by three generations of the Bergan-Carr family before arriving in our collection. Oral history, family photos, and film of the St. Paul Ford plant add to the story.

Read more about the car’s technical specifications in a separate post under “Our Favorite Things.”
