Autumn in Michigan, 1957. A Dodge Royal sedan (of the same year), sits in front of McInerney’s Farm and Old Cider Mill in Southfield, located on Northwestern Hwy., between 12 and 13 mile roads. Known for it’s apples, pumpkins, cider and doughnuts it also had a country store with an attached dining room. And while walking the grounds it wasn't unusual to come across wild pheasants, peacocks or other feathered wild game.
Just 20 miles away in Detroit’s Poletown, the massive Dodge Main plant worked around the clock, churning out it’s namesake branded cars including this classic aqua-blue Dodge Custom Royal sedan.
