RealRides of WNY - 1969 Comet

The brochure called the 1969 Mercury Comet“…the one-model car series.”Based on the mid-sized Montego, this iteration of the Comet was introduced the previous year and was available only as a two-door hardtop. It sat at the bottom of the Montego lineup with an MSRP of $2,532 which was $75 less than the cheapest Montego-branded hardtop. We photographed this one back in 2013 when i

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Sweptline

I’ve always said that if I were ever in the market for a classic pickup, I’d want something a bit out of the ordinary. This 1970 Dodge D100 Sweptlinewould fill the bill nicely; not that there’s anything uncommonly weird about it, but most pickups you see from this era seem to be Fords or Chevys. And we like to be different. This one was actually for salewhen we came across it bac

RealRides of WNY - 1995 Town Car

Day 4 of 7 Days of Lincoln… This 1995 Lincoln Town Carhearkened me back to a family trip to San Diego where, because there were five of us (with luggage and a car seat) we decided to rent a big car. And the Town Car was a b-i-gcar. One thing the rental agent failed to mention was the automatic closing feature of the trunk lid. All you had to do was give it a gentle lowering and it would fin

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Mark III

Day 3 of 7 Days of Lincoln… This 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark IIIis presented in a shade of green which was very popular for the time. There were 22 colors offered by Lincoln for MY 1969 — but none of them match what was described on this car'sFor Salesign as “Limited Color - Belmont Green.”Perhaps it was “limited” because Belmont Green was a 1968 color. You c

RealRides of WNY - 1980 El Camino

Gotta love this 1980 Chevy El Camino. When (if ever) was the last time you saw a later-gen Elky wearing a pair of fender skirts? We first featured this truck/car back in 2014 on our Artvoiceblog (bottom of page), but liked it so much we figured it was worth another look, as our AV page reached a much smaller audience. Surprisingly to some (me) this one is equipped with a floor-mounted three-speed

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
