1949 Ford Sedan with Travel Trailer at New Hudson, Michigan

Summary

The 1949 Ford and a Vagabond trailer are featured in this Ford Motor Company publicity photograph. Though the 1949 Ford came with a new sleek look, it still relied on the pre-war V-8 engine design for power -- enough to tow a vacation trailer.
