RealRides of WNY - 1968 Coronet

Day 3 of “Not A Trailer Queen Week" This 1968 Dodge Coronettwo-door is either the entry-level Deluxe sedan, or the (somewhat) understated hot rod Super Bee (like the one in the brochure art below), cousin toPlymouth’s Road Runner. If it’s not a Super Bee, one look at those rear tires might certainly suggest that it’s trying to become one. The base Coronet of course came sta

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Chevy

This 1955 Chevrolet Two-Ten2-door was seen over the summer on the streets of Olcottduring the annual Olcott Beach Car Show. The Two-Ten was a notch above the bare bones One-Fifty and just below the spiffy Bel Air. The brochure described its interior thusly: “fashionable two-tone upholstery… smart new appointments… beautifully color-keyed.”The Two-Ten (or as Chevy for some

RealRides of WNY - 1978 Granada

The brochure touted the 1978 Ford Granadaas “A classic example of beauty and practicality.”At least they weren’t still trying to compare it to a Mercedes-Benz, as they did when it debuted for MY 1975. The exterior styling was clean and contemporary, and the interiorswere anything but dull. Depending on which model you chose, your interior could have been Medium Blue, Camel, Dove

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Chevy II

This 1965 Chevrolet Chevy II 100has been driving around Tonawandafor as long as I can remember. It was the price leader for the compact Chevy II line for MY 1965, with a starting MSRP of just $2,011 when equipped with the 90-hp I-4, or $2,077 with the 120-hp I-6 (I’m guessing this one has something a little more potent under its hood). Model year 1965 was the fourth year for Chevy’s se

RealRides of WNY - 1971 Comet

Today’s RealRide is a relatively rare 1971 Mercury Comet. Cousin to Ford’s Maverick, the Comet (unsurprisingly) didn’t sell nearly as well — almost 200,000 two-door Mavericks (including almost 39,000 with the Grabber option) left the factory, compared to about 55,000 Comets. Both Ford and Mercury also sold four-door versions of this virtually identical compact — 73,20

RealRides of WNY - 1957 Ford

This sharp-looking 1957 Ford Custom 300 Tudoris another car we came across over the summer at the annual gathering of TheEdsel Guysowners’ group, held in South Wales. The Custom 300 was just a notch up from Ford’s least-expensive 1957 car — the Custom. This one has a few added goodies, like the Thunderbird wire wheels and a molded-in hood scoop from a 1958 Ford (like the one in t

RealRides of WNY - 1938 Chevy

When we passed by this 1938 Chevroletearlier this summer on a bike ride in Tonawanda, we made a mental note to stop back some day and see how it turned out. Luckily, we’re now committing that note to virtual paper, as mental notes are often never heard from again, Lol… We’re also hoping to ask if this one has front-wheel-drive. Why else, we wondered to ourselves, would it be wea

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Nova

Right in the midst of a bunch of Mustangs, Challengers, and many of the usual suspects seen at every cruise-in across America, sat this unrestored 1970 Chevrolet Novaa few weeks ago at the 12th Annual Kiwanis Car Cruiseat the Town Park in Pembroke. Showing mileage in the 50k range, this stock-looking Nova (well, except for those red stripe tires!) has one of Chevy’s two available six-cylinde

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 - 1939 Plymouth

Okay, so this 1939 Plymouthhas me perplexed. It’s wearing a pair of round, sealed beam headlights, set into round openings, with a separate set of turn signals mounted below. Yet, all of Plymouth’s sales & advertising material shows the new ‘39s with rectangular-shaped headlights, and no turn signals in sight (see brochure cover at bottom of page, from G
