RealRides of WNY - 1956 Meteor

From where we sit, this 1956 Meteor Victoria seems to be an anomaly. There were three series offered for MY 1956: base Meteor, Niagara, and Rideau. All of our sources tell us that the Victoria (two-door hardtop) was offered only in the top Rideau lineup. Today’s RealRide however, has the side trim of a Niagara. You can see the difference in the brochure illustrations above. And it’s not like we can go back and ask the owner — we took this photo back in 1997 at a car show in Lockport! If anyone can offer any insight, we’re listening…
