RealRides of WNY - 1957 Chevy

It’s not too hard to find a 1957 Chevy Two-Tenat a local cruise night, but it is unusual to find one in this condition. As you can tell from the absence of any goldveeson the trunk lid and hood (as in the brochure illustration inset), this two-door has Chevy’s Blue-Flame inline six under the hood — an engine which Chevy proclaimed in the brochure as the “World’s stand

RealRides of WNY - 1952 Chevy

Had you been auditioning for a part in “American Graffiti Revisited”back in the spring of 2019, I could have steered you towards this 1952 Chevy Stylinewhich was sitting with a For Salesign in the window on a lot outside a Williamsvillerepair shop. It features a nice set of Packard Clipper taillight lenses like the ones below from 1956, along with (according to the sign): Frenched head

RealRides of WNY - 1971 Maverick

Sales of the 1971 Ford Maverickdidn’t quite match those of its previous, debut year of 578,914. As a matter of fact, with sales of 281,897 they were less than half the 1970 numbers. And this was with the addition of a four-door sedan! But, remember that 1971 marked the debut year for the even smaller (and less expensive) Ford Pinto, which racked up sales of 352,402 — how many of those

RealRides of WNY - 1964 Fairlane

At the time this 1964 Ford Fairlane 500was new, it was considered a mid-sized car. As Ford described it in that year’s Buyer’s Digest, “It’s a car, first of all, that appeals to families. It’s sized just right for them; not too big, not too small.”If that doesn’t help you figure out just how big (or small) the Fairlane was, consider that it was over a foot

RealRides of WNY - 1968 Fury II

This 1968 Plymouth Fury IIis a real step back in time to what we like to refer to as the Mom-And-Dad-Car. You know, the kind of car most of our parents bought instead of the car we kids would rather have seen in the family’s driveway. This one was seen a week or so ago in Lockport, and as cheap as it was, it wasn’t even Plymouth’s least expensive full-size car. That honor went to

RealRides of WNY - 1956 Chevy

Came across this nice two-tone 1956 Chevy Bel Airone day while bicycling around the neighborhood. A few days later there it was at a Sunday cruise night at Hoover’s Restaurant in Sanborn. It isa small world, after all! Regular readers of this spot know that the ’56 is this middle child’s favorite Tri-Five. This one’s looking especially resplendent in its Sierra Gold Poly wi

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Ford

The 1950 Ford Custom Tudoris still a pretty clean design some 70 years after going on sale. It’s flat sides were über-modern compared to GM & Chrysler cars which still showed remnants of add-on rear quarter panels. The only thing Ford was missing in their redesigned ’49-50 lineup was a true two-door hardtop. Up to then they had made-do with a fancified two-door sedan they dubb

RealRides of WNY - 1954 Ford

This 1954 Ford Mainlinerepresents the marque’s final year of another three-year styling cycle. It would also mark the last appearance of the high-end Crestline series, which would be replaced for MY 1955 by the new Fairlane lineup. In ’54, the Mainline was Ford’s least expensive model, available in two- and four-door sedan versions, as well as a two-door business coupe with a mor

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 - 1949 Mercury

Years ago (and not that many, actually) if I would have posted these 1949 Mercuryphotos, I would have called it a work in progress. These days, you never know. This could be the finished product, or it could be in a pause phase while the owner takes a breather from an all-out customizing project. Either way, someone’s put a lot of time in so far. Saw this one a few years ago at a cruise nigh
