1953 Plymouth Suburban 2 door stationwagon

Two door wagons were popular in the early 50's. Plymouth introduced a nice all steel wagon in 49, but kept a wood panel wagon as an option through 1951. These were very practical wagons with a folding rear seat and clamshell hatches in the back. This video is particularly interesting in detailing the sourcing of parts for a car like this. As the owner says, exterior sheet metal is still available..and the mechanical parts are readily available.

1966 Sunbeam Tiger
A nice marriage of a British sports car and an American V8...a Ford 260 c.i. The bizarre part was the fact it was sold at Chrysler Corporation dealers here in the U.S. Chrysler had had an agreement with Sunbeam and their cars. I've often wondered if the dealer referred the owner to the Ford dealer for warrant work on the engine, if that were needed!

1938 Ford Fordor Sedan...Edsel's Daughter's car
Edsel brought this car to Maine so that his daughter Josephine could learn to drive. This one had a radio, as befitting a car belonging to the Ford family. Can you visualize Edsel driving, giving instruction to his daughter?? The car is for sale, and the owner's phone number is advertised on the car window.

1953 Chevy Handyman Four Door Stationwagon Ed Grn TRRDaytonaSpdwy112914
A practical, no nonsense stationwagon. I had forgotten about the "handyman" name...but it certainly conveys practicality! Nice period accessories in the back!

1941 Packard 120 4 door sedan
This is the last of the traditionally styled Packards except for the 180 sedan produced in the abbreviated model year of 1942. Also introduced this 1941 model year was the Clipper, a more modern styling that incorporated lower, more streamlined body lines and a less conspicuous grille. For many, this is the last of the "true" Packards of legend.
