1950 Ford Convertible

with 6 comments

This was a very nice car (up close and personal). When my aunt in Maine first got married, she won a car like this.

  1. This car is huge. Cars are so small now and have very little character. Wonder if any car companies will ever again try to make cars with style. Today most cars look the same to me.

  2. I know what you mean about being BIG. But I think – back in the day – this was considered a small car, compared to an Oldsmobile, Buick, Cadillac, or Lincoln. I feel the same way about car looking a like- especially from the Asian manufacturers. I think I commented before – if GM could put an up-to-date (technologically) 1957 Chevy on the market today – it would sell like hot cakes!!

    Thanks so much for your comments. I appreciate them.

  3. That’s a beautiful Ford, if ever there was one… Did you see if it still had the original flathead V8?

  4. My first car was a 49 Ford flat head coupe. Three on the column, split windshield and power nothun’, crank windows etc. I think I paid around two hundred dollars in 1961. You really drove the car. I loved the shot in the vid where the guy pulls up the hand break, with a car that heavy you needed that parking break, epecially if you were dumb enough to leave it parked in neutral. I’m not so sure you could drive with one hand. The grown-ups were still wary of power steering and automatics.
