Geely The 1949 Ford officially debuted in June 1948. I’m almost certain that the 1948 Cadillac (which featured the first tailfins) and 1948 Oldsmobile 98, which were true postwar designs, were already on the market by that point.
Ford Coupe 1951 images. Ford introduces theturn-keyignition in 1951. This two door coupe is one of six body styles available which also include a 2-door hard top, 2 door sedan, 4 door sedan.. Coupes in general lost their practical raison d’etre as tradeoffs between passenger and cargo space when the “three box” shape (typified by this Ford) came into being after WWII and all cars had good-sized trunks. Then the convertible-styled pillarless “hardtop coupe” took over as an alternative to the traditional two-door sedan for people who wanted something that looked sporty.
When production resumed after WWII Ford upgraded the V-8 to the 239.4-cid 100 hp unit used in contemporary Mercurys. The power rating of the six went up to 95 in 1948 and I believe stayed there through the end of its run. The flathead six was replaced by the ohv I-block six for 1952, Ford dipping its toes in the water with ohv engines for its lower-volume products (the Ford six and the Lincoln V-8) in preparation for big changes in 1954.It wasn’t unusual for manufacturers to have marketing codenames for different types of sedan depending on number of doors and, for awhile in the mid-30s when built-in trunks were becoming a thing but not universal, whether they had one of those.

It had a tri-power J-2 Olds motor in it and some other things I no longer remember. It had been made a mild custom back then, but this guy wanted to build it as a sleeper. So, he was in the process of restoring the car back to it’s original exterior appearance. But it was not the easiest thing to do in 1978, because these were all old cars back then and few people cared about restoring them back to their original looks. The few that were on the road were mostly hot rodded or lead sleds and the rest had been turned into washing machines sometime in the 1960’s. He eventually moved away and took his project with him, I never did find out if he got it finished.
Ah yes, that too; it’s fun to see how Ford tends to come roaring back in the marketplace every couple of decades.. Which answered a question I had long had.It’s a late model, in fact a ’68 or ’69.. it has the Federally mandated side marker lights.Movie theaters. There were a lot of short subject and one- and two-reel type films that were shown in movie theaters as product promotions (commercials before the movie comes on are back as a thing now in big theatres, at least here in Canada. When I was a kid growing up our small-town theatre never did that).
The fact that a relatively intact coupe version of this car could end up in a junkyard speaks volumes about the profound changes to our society and economy. Wrenching on cars was long a blue collar hobby. What little is left of the working class can no longer afford to indulge in a hobby like this. People who do have the money buy new, and show little interest in getting greasy. Standard sized low-priced cars (i.e. Ford, Chevy, Plymouth) went through considerable bloat from about 1957-58 until they peaked at beached-whale size in the early 1970s. Intermediates did the same, by peak size circa 1975 they were the size of a modern-era Crown Vic (about 215″ long). The big downsize of the late ’70s brought things back to about where they had been in the ’60s. The new-generation midsize sedans of the ’80s (Celebrity, Taurus) were about the same size as the ’50s models.

Most manufacturers made both two-door sedans and coupes in the ’30s and ’40s. The coupe models were much closer-coupled with a short passenger compartment and a long deck and could be had with or without a backseat (sometimes folding jump seats in a very cramped space); this innovation was introduced by Ford in 1937 as the “club coupe”. Sedans had more of their length devoted to passenger space (mostly manifested in generous rear legroom) but had much less trunk space.You could get the ’51 Ford with the famous flathead V8 or the 254-cubic-inch flathead straight-six engine. This car has the six.

The Airflow itself was a failure; but it had a profound effect on car design. I realized this when I added a 1937 Ford to my timeline, then studied it in relation to the cars before and after it. You could see how Ford rushed to join the aero game by fairing the headlights into the fenders, placing a more rounded grill on the front, and adding a split windshield. In 1940 they went all out and moved the engine forward so that it was centered over the front axle, and centering the passenger compartment between the front and rear axles; just like the Airflow. Moving the engine forward resulted in a more pointed beak; it also has a split windshield, just like the Airflow. These features; plus the fact that so few were built due to the war is why to me the 1940 Ford was a “postwar” design. Taillights Junior Conway's 1950 Ford Frank Katzler's 1950 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Bert Gustavsson's 1951 Dodge Well yes, they had starters rather than crank handles, and options like windows and roofs made of metal and not canvas. :)
I had forgotten about the duplication of the serial number/VIN stamped above the firewall for that series of automobile; I can imagine many later customizers filling those in with lead to create the super-smooth engine bay look popular among that crowd.

There’s no unwritten rule that all vaguely-usable car bodies and engines are deserving of being preserved in perpetuity.I think a lot of it is that people buy old cars are often purchasing the cars they wanted as a kid or owned as a teenager. The people who would remember this car are mostly past the age that they are willing to work on one.This was the 2nd car to save FoMoCo’s ass: just as the Model A forestalled disaster at the hands of Chevrolet’s more powerful models, so too did the new design ’49 Ford revitalize sales to post-WWII Americans, flush with cash and rapidly climbing the career ladder.

Prepare to feast your eyes ladies and gents, because this car is an insanely sick build that is a complete and utter work of art “Korean War Chrome” was a thing in cars at that time. The layers of copper and nickel understriking applied to the steel before the chrome plating were thinned because the materials were in short supply, so the plating didn’t last as long.Plymouth wasn’t outselling Ford, but Chrysler Corporation was outselling Ford Motor Company, and did from about 1936 to 1950. I think Ford got the #2 corporate sales spot back in 1951, thanks to the popularity of the new Fords and Mercurys (Mercury especially, as in its new iteration as a “Junior Lincoln” it went from selling about 85,000/year to over 300,000 and became a real medium-priced contender).

The Cadillac and Oldsmobile lines of this era were not as clean and modern. There is something to be said for simpler and less cluttered designs which in the later part of the 50’s were more extreme with larger tail fins and over chromed. The first generation of Taurus was similar in that it was a simpler and less cluttered. A 49-50 Ford looks less out of place today than a 57 Chrysler despite the bar across the front window.
My Dad had a “51 Tudor in Hawaiian Bronze, V-8 with overdrive. I was with him when we picked it up at the factory.

The Falcon was a huge sales success, and served as the basis for several other Fords and Mercurys over the next 15 years. But Ford was not on the verge of bankruptcy while the Falcon was under development. The Falcon did not save the company. It was financially healthy in 1959-60.Some History about Thunder Road from Wikipedia–“The film was based loosely on an incident in which a driver transporting moonshine was said to have crashed to his death on Kingston Pike in Knoxville, Tennessee between Bearden Hill and Morrell Road. Per Metro Pulse writer Jack Renfro, the incident occurred in 1952 and may have been witnessed by James Agee, who passed the story on to Mitchum.”The combination of ChryCo’s homely ’49s and Ford’s beautiful new lineup drove the company permanently past Chrysler.
The 1945 Ford just barely in view on the left in the picture above carried the theme forward; but the 1949 Ford was the first with “pontoon styling”; which had the front and rear fenders totally incorporated into the body and no running boards as well as up-to-date engineering underneath.He said, and sounded knowledgeable enough and sincere enough, that he had been the mechanic for many of the drivers in N.
