The Crestline was introduced as the top trim level of the 1952 Ford range, above the intermediate-level Customline and base level Mainline.[1] It was offered in Victoria, Sunliner and Ranch Wagon versions with 2-door hardtop, 2-door convertible and 4-door station wagon body styles respectively.[2] Crestlines were offered only with a 239 CID "L-head" V8 engine.[1]


The Crestline was updated with minor styling and trim changes for 1953.[1] It retained its position as the top trim level in the Ford range while body styles and engine availability also remained unchanged.[1]


For 1954 the Crestline was again updated with minor styling and trim changes.[1] Fordor Sedan and Skyliner versions were added, the latter being a 2-door hardtop with a tinted transparent panel in the front section of the roof.[3] New 223 CID straight-six and 239 CID overhead valve V8 engines were offered.[1]

The Crestline was replaced by the Ford Fairlane in the 1955 Ford range.[1]
