RealRides of WNY - 1964 Chevy C10 Fleetside

Here’s a 1964 Chevy C10 Fleetside half-ton pickup, seen last year in Wheatfield. This one has the shorter 6-1/2-ft bed (an 8-ft bed was also offered). Standard powerplant was the 230 Six, while the bigger 292 Six and the 283 V8 were optional. Two different three-speed manuals and a four-speed manual were available, along with a two-speed Powerglide automatic. Stepside versions were also offe

RealRides of WNY - 1947 Ford

My own personal memories of a 1947 Ford much like this one go back to my early Lancaster childhood and the elderly gentleman who lived next door to us. Funny, looking back on this now it was only a 12-year-old car, and the “elderly” gentleman was probably in his 50s. Everything, I guess, is relative, Lol… Some purists might question the wheel and tire selection on this particula

RealRides of WNY - 1931 Chevrolet pickup

This 1931 Chevy pickup, seen a couple of Saturdays ago at the Charity for HART Interfaith Car Show in Wheatfield, I am told is an actual old barn find, and it didn’t take much to get it up and running again. According to that year’s brochure, it had a load space 66 inches long and 45 inches wide. How, you might be wondering, does that compare with today’s Silverado? A 2017 four-d

RealRides of WNY - 1977 Cadillac Sedan DeVille

Don’t tell anyone, but this 1977 Cadillac Sedan DeVille was actually downsized from the previous year’s model — but it’s still allotta car! And you’ve lot to love the color combination; try and find a new car these days in yellow with a matching vinyl roof covering — fat chance! Cadillac was still riding high in 1977 as the luxury make that many Americans aspire

RealRides of WNY - 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS

This clean-looking Crocus Yellow 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Super Sport was the top of the mid-sized Chevy line back in the middle sixties. Over 100,000 copies of the Malibu SS left the factory for 1965, in both two-door hardtop and convertible body styles, with either six- or eight-cylinder power under the hood. IMO, probably not many were built with the six, but, then again, some folks are a

RealRides of WNY - 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria

The license plate might say Massachusetts, but I’m pretty sure I was driving through the Town of Wheatfield, New York when I spotted this 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria. This one’s got some options: two-tone paint, whitewalls, outside mirrors, back-up lamps, bumper guards, continental kit, radio, and a V8 with dual exhausts. You might think it odd that with all of these extras, it’s
