RealRides of WNY - 1953 Chrysler

Driving through Elmaone rainy afternoon earlier this summer I came across this 1953 Chrysler Windsorby the side of the road wearing a For Salesign. When this car left the factory, it most likely had Chrysler’s Spitfire engine under the hood, an inline six which delivered 119 horsepower. Pricier New Yorkers (and the Imperial) came with the FirePower engine, a 180-hp V8 with a Hemispherical Co

RealRides of WNY - 1949 Dodge

This 1949 Dodge Coronetis from what has become known as their second-series1949 models. Chrysler Corproation’s all-new 1949 lineups weren’t ready in time for the usual fall introduction, so they sold 1948 models registered as first-series1949s from the fall of 1948 until April 1949, when the new Wayfarer, Meadowbrook, and Coronet went on sale at Dodge dealers. Speaking of for sale, we

RealRides of WNY - 1953 Studebaker

This appears to be a 1953 Studebaker Champion Regal Starlight Coupe. I say appears to bebecause it seems to have the grille of a ’53 while wearing the C-pillar trim and chrome roof two-tone break-line pieces from a 1954 model. (Sometimes I think they do this to me on purpose!)We saw this nice example, from Pennsylvania, a few years ago at a Studebaker swap meet in Dunkirk, where it was in th

RealRides of WNY - 1964 Falcon

With summer right around the corner, at least calendarically, this 1964 Ford Falcon Futuramight be just what you’re looking for. We came across it a few weeks ago while bicycling through the WestSide of Buffalo. It’s wearing a couple of for salesigns, and looks like it might need a bit of work but hey, it’s a convertible! The Falcon, you may remember, especially the sportier Futu

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Impala

The 1965 Chevrolet Impalawas one of the all-time best-sellers, so it’s not surprising to still see them out and about 55 years later. We came across this one, with a for salesign in the window, a few weeks ago while out riding the Rails-to-Trails bike path in Tonawanda. I guess the sellers thought tempting the path users might be a better move than parking it out front where vehicular traffi

RealRides of WNY - 1987 5th Avenue

I’m going to ask you all to lean in close and listen carefully as I have to whisper: To paraphrase a famous former American politician, “We can see this 1987 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenuefrom our front porch.” Why whisper that? It’s for sale. And I’d love to see it in my driveway. Nobody here at theRealRideshead office knows that but me. But, the RealRidesgarage al

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Skylark

It was ten years ago when we came across this 1970 Buick Skylark Customin the parking lot of the Summit Park Mall in Wheatfield, sporting a couple of For Salesigns in the windows (the car, not the mall… oh, wait a minute, Lol). You can see the hand-scribbled particulars on one of the signs below. I’ve always wondered how those “or best offer” propositions work out. This wa

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Fairlane 500

It’s not often we revisit a RealRide, but over the summer we received an email from Don Paterson in Elmira, who told us he is the new owner of this 1960 Ford Fairlane 500, which we had seen in Sweden, N.Y.back in September, 2016 wearing a for salesign — you can see the original piece here: He came across it online while perusing our

RealRides of WNY - 1982 Dodge 400

Chrysler is often credited with starting the comeback of the American convertible with the introduction of its 1982 LeBaron. What seems to often get lost in the shuffle is the fact that there was a corporate twin to the LeBaron, the 1982 Dodge 400. In their advertising, Dodge called it “America’s Most Beautiful Driving Machine…”Hyperboles aside, the 400 droptop wasa handso

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Marquis Brougham

In an automotive model year which saw General Motors downsize its full-sized cars, the copywriters who were publicizing this 1977 Mercury Marquis Broughamhad a little fun at the General’s expense:And as big and luxurious as this car is (not to mention how very Lincolnesque it appears from the front), it’s not even the plushiest big Merc. That would fall to the top o’the line Gran
