Flathead Friday is here and this 1949 Ford Deluxe Club Coupe is a terrific example of the Shoebox Ford.

This 1960 Vespa 400 is not one of my typical posts.  The thing is, I didn’t know that Vespa ever made a car!  This little tomato had a 14hp 2 cylinder engine, and suicide doors!

I know that this 1960 Impala Hardtop is a Chevrolet and a 4-door, but it sure is SUWEET!

When I was an youngster, just developing an admiration for automobiles, I thought that there was one car called a Ford (And it looked like the Edsel.), one car called a Chevy (And it looked like a 1961 Chevy Impala.), one car called a Volkswagen (The Beetle, of course.), etc…  All of these preconceived notions came from people that I knew owning these cars.  The 1951 Studebaker Champion is what I thought all Studebakers looked like.  And I have no idea why….

According to the listing on Hemmings, this 1965 Studebaker Wagonaire is “barn-fresh”, having sat in dry storage for 20 years.  I may believe that, those look like bias-ply tires on it!

Today’s 1-shot Sunday is a perfect 1950 Plymouth Suburban Special.  PERFECT!

Welcome to Flathead Friday!  I know that we usually think of the Ford V8 when we think of flathead engines, but today’s example is a 196 cubic inch L-head 6 cylinder neatly nested in a 1959 Rambler American, adorned with Robins Egg Blue paint.  This car was purchased with the only two options available to it; an AM radio and those factory installed backup lights!

This green and white beauty is a 1973 Ford Maverick Grabber.  With is being a Grabber it has the 302 V8, and this one comes with factory air as well.  Sign me up!

I wanted to post an Edsel today, but I’ve been working on my wagon lately so I’m kind of in a station wagon mood.  So, combine the 2 and we have a 1958 Edsel Villager Station Wagon!  Groovy car, and I love the instrument panel.  But they list this wagon as the correct “Spring Green” paint.  I know that monitors can differ when they show colors, but I’m pretty sure that this color does not occur naturally in nature.

I’d still like to get a little truck, and a Ford Courier would be a good way to go.  I would rather the earlier style (TOP) than the later (BOTTOM), but I would love either!
