RealRides of WNY - 1955 Ford

Seeing that the door windows are fully framed, I think it’s safe to say that today's RealRideisn’t a convertible. Besides the chopped top, how many other modifications can you find on this 1955 Ford Tudor? That top, IMO, is a faux Carson top, made to look like it’s a convertible. An actual Carson top looks similar, but is fully removable. There’s always the possibility thou

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Nova

The brochure called the 1978 Chevrolet Nova“Solid. Sensible, and sized for today.”Discounting the two incomplete sentences here, the description was pretty spot on. Available as this coupe, as well as a four-door sedan and a three-door hatchback, the compact Nova was about the size of a standard 1955 Chevy. How things changed over the years! The brochure pages for the ritzy Nova Custom

RealRides of WNY - 1954 Meteor

Why, you might be asking yourself, would any Canadian buyer choose a 1954 Meteorlike this one over an almost identical 1954 Ford? Could be that, seeing how Canada’s population is so spread out, there wasn’t a Ford dealer for hundreds of miles, but there wasa Mercury-Meteor dealer much closer to home. This is why Ford marketed the Meteor — to appeal to as many price ranges as they

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Plymouth

Nothing makes me happier than coming across something like this 1960 Plymouth Savoy, a bottom-of-the-heap car which nobody probably ever thought would still be on the road 62 years after someone drove it off the new car lot. Most of these cars were used, abused, and scrapped. Kudos to the owner of this one who’s kept it looking in character and resisted the temptation to tart it up or hot ro

RealRides of WNY - 1949 Meteor

If you happened to wander into the Old School Reviewin the back room of this year’s Cavalcade of Carsin Hamburg, you may have come across today’s RealRideand thought to yourself “Nice old Shoebox Ford.” And you would have been close, but no cigar. This is actually a 1949 Meteor, which yes, was largely based on the Ford but was sold in Canada at Mercury-Lincoln-Meteor dealer

RealRides of WNY - 1950 Chevrolet

Remember the days when some car manufacturers offered you just two engine choices? They were: Take it, or leave it. A case in point was this 1950 Chevrolet DeLuxetwo-door sedan, which we came across last summer while bicycling on Grand Island. Chevy wasn’t yet offering a V8 — their only engine was the 92-hp valve-in-head inline six which, to its credit, for 1950 had ”…[a]

RealRides of WNY - 1961 Comet

Rambler and Studebaker compacts had been around since the late 1950s, but for model year 1960 the Big Three entered the foray with the Chevy Corvair, Ford Falcon, and Chrysler Corporation’s Valiant. Ford’s Lincoln-Mercury Division might have arguably introduced what could be called the first senior compactpartway through the model year with the debut of the 1960 Comet(which wouldn&rsqu

RealRides of WNY - 1966 VW

Because it was difficult to tell cars of one model year from the next, when this 1966 Volkswagen 1300hit the showrooms, VW printed a brochure called “What Year Is It?” which enumerated the cars changes from year to year. The changes for 1966 were listed as: Increased horsepower (from 40 to 50) and displacement (from 1200 to 1300cc) Ventilating wheel slots; flat hub caps Emergency blin

RealRides of WNY - 1937 Chevy

True, the back end of this 1937 Chevroletisn’t fully visible in this photo sent to us by long-time RealRidesreader Fran Bushardt, but from here it looks like it’s a Town Sedan. The bodywork is very similar to the Coach but for the facts that the Coach carried its spare tire continental-style outside the car above the back bumper, and the Town Sedan's trunk was (undersrtandably) larger

RealRides of WNY - 1960 Falcon

What more can be said of the 1960 Ford Falcon? In this, its debut year, with sales of 435,676 it whupped the domestic competition: Chevy Corvair (249,277); Rambler American (117,609); Studebaker Lark (127,715); and Chrysler’s Valiant (194,292). Of course, there’s always somethingelse that can be said, or we wouldn’t be here. One Swedish magazine ad told us “Falcon 1960 - en
