RealRides of WNY - 1964 Corvair

Before you claim “Photoshopped”I will attest to the fact that yes, this 1964 Corvairtrailer actually exists. It should be pretty obvious from the other photos — who’s got thatmuch time to do thatmuch Photoshopping? Lol… I’ve come across it a few times over the years — these photos are from the 2017 car show at Mt. St. Mary Academy in Tonawanda, along with

RealRides of WNY - 1962 Greenbrier

The brochure refers to it as a 1962 Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier Sports Wagon, but you’d be hard-pressed to find the Corvair nameplate anywhere on this compact van. We ran into Niagara Falls resident Pat Pilon a couple of times in the past two weeks with this, his newest purchase, a native-Pennsylvania van which was hauled out of an old barn in Livonia, N.Y.this past May (see photo) and brou

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Chevy Impala

If you were around 52 years ago, odds are pretty good that someone in your neighborhood had a 1965 Chevy Impala — maybe even this very car, which was seen last summer at the Mt. St. Mary Academy car show in Tonawanda. Chevy sold over a million Impalas for 1965 — not just one million Chevys, but a million Impalas! Add in the cheaper Biscaynes and Bel Airs, as well as Chevy II, Corvair,

RealRides of WNY - 1973 Ford Maverick

This 1973 Ford Maverick is all original, and was bought new by the father of the current owner. Believe it or not, it just turned over 30K miles! The compact Maverick was the successor to Ford’s highly popular Falcon, both of which were early sales successes for Ford, with the Falcon selling over 435,000 units in its inaugural year, while the Maverick numbers totaled almost 579,000 for MY 19

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Chrysler Windsor

You might not think so to look at it, but this 1957 Chrysler Windsor four-door sedan was the least expensive Chrysler model you could buy that year. Of course, this one’s been fancied-up a bit with two-tone paint, fender skirts, quad headlights, curb feelers (!), and other goodies, but its curb appeal puts many of today’s high-end sedans (which is was Chryslers were back then) to shame

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria

(Day 5 of FoMoCo Week)Someone correct me if I’m wrong here, but I don’t believe that black vinyl tops were a factory optionwhen this 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria was new. It does, however, look pretty sharp! You almost never see one of these in white these days, as it seems that most of them are wearing a 1950s two-tone combination. Victoria was Ford-speak back in the day for their pill
