1956 Ford Fairlane Sunliner

This was the quintessential color scheme for 1956! I had a tie that had the same coloration! These cars were very liberating from the dull postwar models..Detroit had become alive with color! This one is restored very well..too bad the hood wasn't up to show the 312 c.i. Thunderbird V8. This would make an excellent touring car!

1967 Acadian Hardtop
I'm glad I was able to film this rare car again. We have Canadian visitors who grace the car show at Old Town with this splendid car! It is based on the Chevy Nova, and was sold at Pontiac dealerships in Canada. The Acadian has a Chevrolet powertrain consisting of the 283 engine and Powerglide automatic. Pontiac cars in Canada were based on Chevrolet frames and engines, but had unique Pontiac style bodies. It's my understanding that this was made necessary by the lack of a free trade agreement between the U.S. and Canada at the time.





1964 Corvair Monza Convertible
This is the last year of the original style for Corvair...the following year was a fairly dramatic restyle. I have to believe this is a fairly unusual color...it looks good with the complimentary convertible top! Paint and interior are pristine! Note the transmission selector lever below the instrument cluster, and the pistol styled hand brake/emergency brake. Also check the generator (before alternators) and the infamous drive belt that made 90 degree turns.





1941 Chevy 2 door sedan
I mention the owner's claim that this is a 1946 Chevy...fortunately one of my alert viewers recognized it as a 1941 model. It is understandable that there could be confusion because there was little change among the 1941, 42, 46, 47 and 48 models. Chief changes involved the grille work, parking lamps, and side trim. This car has vacuum shift...engine vacuum was used to assist shifting the conventional 3 speed manual transmission. The throws were very short..the owner told me that it generally works pretty well...occasionally there will be a little grinding of gears.





1941 Studebaker Commander Coupe
This is probably best seen as a 1941 1/2 Skyway model. Note the curved, one piece windshield. This has to be one of the first one piece, curved windshield..very advanced for its time. The original engine on this Commander would have been an in-line, flat head six. An "automatic" was offered in 1942 models, but it involved a fluid coupling and a clutch...I have never seen one.

Cruising in the 1955 Fairlane
Tommy Gun and I had to take the Fairlane out for a spin before we started the restoration. It only blows a wee little bit of smoke so we figured it'd be ok. If you can't tell by all the laughing, we were pretty much having a ball. There's nothing like driving a classic car. For those of you who haven't done it, you really have to try it. Seriously. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for watching! PS - If you have any tips about the overdrive situation please let me know. Thanks. PPS - Music is the song "Little Talks" by "Of Monsters And Men".
