Abandoned Car of the Week

The 1955 Chevrolet was a turning point for the manufacturer, the first successful Chevrolet with a V8 engine. Though Chevrolet had produced another car with a V-8, the 1938, it had remained in production for only a year. The '55's looks, power and engineering made it a critical success.

Abandoned Car of the Week

 


In 1946 Ford beat out Chevrolet in marketing a new car immediately following the end of World War II, with the Super Deluxe Tudor sedan. All Ford body styles were carried over from the discontinued 1942 model. The Ford came with a 239 cubic inch V-8 making 100 horsepower. Ford outsold Chevrolet 468.022 to 398,028 in 1946 before Chevy recaptured the "best selling brand" title in 1947. Some of Ford's post-war success came from Ford's ad agency, which coined the phrase, "There's a Ford in your future." This 1946 Super Deluxe was found in eastern North Carolina.

This conglomeration of Edsels was found in an Arizona salvage yard. If anyone is restoring an Edsel, this may be a treasure drove of parts. Built by Ford, Edsel was designed to range above Ford and Mercury and below Lincoln in the Ford lineup. The sedan was sold for just three years — 1958-1960 — before it was discontinued because of anemic sales. (Photo by Jim Prueter)
