RealRides of WNY - 1972 Mach 1

This 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1is a one-owner car, having been bought new by Fredonia’s Joel Polito at Hartley Ford, which was also located in Fredonia back in the day. This 49-year-old pony car has only about 80k miles on the odometer, and is equipped with a 351cid V8 under that scooped hood, connected to a console-mounted SelectShift automatic transmission. The black vinyl interior still loo

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Barracuda

There wasn’t a huge difference between the 1965 Plymouth Barracudaseen here and the 1964 model which preceded it. Probably because it was introduced late in the ’64 model year, just a couple of weeks before Ford introduced the Mustang if I remember correctly. The differences between the ’64 and ’65 models lie mainly in what you see in the inset photo: the debut cars had a V

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Mustang

I guess this tag line could be taken one of two ways — but we’ll take the high road here and forgive the brochure copywriters for this 1969 Ford Mustang SportsRoofwho told us: “Somebody finally built a better Mustang.”I don’t imagine that helped the market much for used 1965-68 Mustangs, Lol… We came across this one while scouting the neighborhood around the ne

We came across this 1969 Ford Torino GT SportsRoofat a cruise night at the Urban VFW-AMVETS Post in Lancaster (maybe one of the few cruise nights we’ll see this year, sad to say). The Torino GT came standard with Ford’s 302cid V8; this one, according to the fender badge, has the optional 351. The GT was also available as a more traditionally styled two-door hardtop (below), as well as

RealRides of WNY - 1967 Marlin

It’s not every day that you come across a 1967 AMC Marlin(only 2,545 were built). It was the car’s third and final year of production, but it was only the second year that it was branded as an AMC rather than a Rambler, and the first (and only) year it would share the platform of the Ambassador rather than the Classic. Got all that? The 1967 models —“The flair of a fastback

RealRides of WNY - 1968 Cyclone

This 1968 Mercury Cyclonewas just one member of the marque’s midsized lineup which ranged from the price leader Comet sports coupe on up through the Montego, Montego MX, and Montego MX Brougham — topping off with the high-performance Cyclone GT. The Cyclone was offered as a more formal two-door hardtop (below) as well as this fastback. Cyclones (and the Cyclone GT) came standard with a
