Brewster,

Did you notice that the 2 ladies on the left had dashes from the 52-53 Ford cars?? I thought this was a Chevy site?? Ha!! Seriously though, please keep the photos coming. Sure appreciate it.

You'd have to be a Ford guy to spot that! Is there something you're not telling us?! I really thought they were just a generic dash…
I do appreciate that she's bombing through there in 3rd gear...

Actually, the ignition key is shown as upper right, but the correct position would be lower left of steering wheel if it was a true Ford dash.

I gots a real problem though, I just plain love all old cars, regardless of make, and yup, I gots 3 Fords, a Chevy, and an AMC Matador. You probably don't remember those cause I think you are a bit young???

I caught the tail end of AMC's existence… saw a lot of them in high school in the late eighties. I remember them from the '70's as well though...

I saw these two on the H.A.M.B… Not sure of the dates, but the Landau Phaeton looks like it may be an old VCCA event?

1931 Landau Phaeton…



1932 5 passenger coupe…

New models shown on main street, 1935. Standards on the right, and Masters on the left. Can anyone identify the town?

Jane, Abigail and I went for a walk last night into downtown of Bolton, Ontario. The town has done some work on the bridge and riverfront area, and put up a bunch of historical boards that tell the history of our town. This view shows a 490 Touring on Queen St. looking to the south. I never even thought to take the current view, but will do so later.

Must have been a rather large dealership to have a selection like that. So I assume this is a fair sized city.

Brewster,

Three things:

1. Cleaning up the 42. The bumper ends look like they have been borrowed from a later model. I supposed the fellow in front is sorry he traded the 41 and thinks that using the Weed Eater on the car is just right. What's with the sprinkler bucket on the right? I doubt the pipe is lit. I don't know why they took that thing out front where all the neighbors could see it. Back yard would have served better, I'm thinking. Further, why even wash a 42? Hmmm? Seems that would be a waste of time and water. After all, there are thirsty people in the world. Agrin

2. On the models on main street. Why are all the cars on the left sporting the eagle(?) radiator caps? Were they standard on those models? The cars on the right seem to have cloth tops, are they the same year as the ones on the left? Or are they last years models. Seems I can almost make out a sign in their windows saying, "Huge Discount." Agrin

3. The ladies luv2 taking mandatory driving lessons. bike Do you think that helped any? devil The gearshift levers look they are in neutral to me. Anyhow, maybe you folks north of the border refer to a position of the gear shift as "third" but we, who are evidently more logical thinking down here, accurately refer to it as "drive" (because there is no "fourth" you see. Agrin

I'm just funning, especially with the 42 guys. Agrin dance

Thanks for posting,
Charlie computer

Thats way the accessory 1942 wing tips looked.

There were two completely different cars in 1935. The Standard looked old fashioned with a 1933-1934 type body. The Master Deluxe had the modern steel top, rounded more modern 1936 type body. The modern body would be used on the Standard in 1936 also.

The "Eagles" were an accessory. The production ornament on a Master was a rather flat bullet. I would guess 95% of the Masters had the eagle. Probably was a required production option package. Was just an ornament on the Master as the actual radiator filler cap was under the hood.
In 1935 bumpers were still an option but there again it was a required option and you couldn't get the car without them. Was a pricing thing. A lower suggested list price could be advertised . All of the car companies did it .
The 1935 Standard still had the exposed radiator cap and the eagle cap was a dealer installed accessory.

Brewster --

You got a hang-up with Fords??
Look closely and you will see that there are only 3 Chevys on the right side. Then 2 Ford?? trucks. Then a 35 Ford 4 door slantback. After the barricade past the people, looks like a bunch of 35 Fords to me. Could also be Dodges, but me thinks they are Fords.

I thought the trucks on the right side of the road are a 1 ton then a half ton Chevy. I have no idea what town it is, or what the event is that is happening… but it reminds me of the photos that were sent to us from Cowra, Australia in the first photo thread. The new cars were all shipped into town by train, then displayed on main street the day the dealers came to pick them up. Hence the multiple makes here.

As for the gear shifts, Charlie… Third is found on a three speed manual transmission. Drive is found on a Powerglide automatic. They have those so that you don't get your skirt caught in it when driving. Now I'm wondering who's been doing the shifting for you in the '41? Or is that long line of traffic behind you because you thought first was drive, and you didn't have to change them up??!!

P.S. Thanks… now I can't look at that '42 picture without thinking that he's using a weed-wacker on it!! willy

Brewster,

Nice come back. A little lame though.

Gene,

I stared at those 42 bumper ends some more. Now I can see the three bumps/ridges in them. I missed them before and thats why I thought they were from a later model.

I will confess. I have sinned. Back in 1951 I put the 1942 guards on my 1941. You could find those laying around at the dealership and no 1941's..
Also installed the 1950 uprights. they were removed from wrecks at the body shop and only had a few nicks on them.
