Default Top three Ford Products, '32 - '53

I know that you can't like just one and I know picking, even 3 will be hard! But, let's try it. Because some years are very hard to tell apart, it will be ok to group them. I'm grouping two of my picks.

1. '33/'34 Ford, I have a real hard time telling them apart. I like them because they are less "boxy" than the '32's.

2. '35/'36 Ford truck (Mod 50/51). I can tell them apart, because I own one. But a lot of people can't. I honed my driving skills in a '36, in 1957.

3. '39 Ford. I think they are just beautiful and my dad bought one new. It's the first car that I remember.

This is my dads '39 Deluxe and me, on the left, with my Granfather at 6years old. The only picture I have of it.

33, 34, 39, 40 and 37 trucks. I love that 37 pickup radiator shell. Many of them used on old hot rods.

It's easier to pick the bottom three: '38, '41-50, and '52 Fords (yes, that's lots more than three).

38 standard coupe are pretty nice David. Plus whom doesn't like a 49-50 business coupe?


For argument sake. And as far as total vehicle "look" rollout. 42-48 gets a bit fat, but maybe why they are fat fender cars.


too me there is not an ugly ford before the escort and the k-car.
