This Little Thunderbird Went to Market: A prototype Ford Thunderbird convertible photographed on August of 1954 was a taste of things to come.They might have been beaten out of the gate in the personal two-seat convertible category by GM by a couple of years, but in it’s first year alone Ford sold three and half times as many Thunderbirds as Chevrolet did in the first three years of Corvette production combined.

The 1947 Studebaker – “First, By Far with a Postwar Car”: The banner on the wall reads “Tomorrow’s Car’s A Year in Advance” and the 1947 Studebakers sure looked different from anything Detroit had to offer that year. It’s easy to see how unconventional these cars appeared by comparing them to everything else parked on the street in the background of both photos. While Ford, GM and Chrysler were still selling rehashes of their 1941 models to a car hungry public, Studebaker’s new model drew a large and curious crowd to the J.M. Brown showroom in Vancouver, B.C., Canada on July 4, 1946. Learm more and see another photo @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=95354

The Davis Divan – A Three Wheeled Oddity:

When successful car salesman Glenn Gordon Davis saw the “Californian”, a Ford V-8 “60″powered three wheeler designed by race car builder Frank Kurtis for millionaire sportsman Joel Thorne in 1941, he was so impressed that he eventually acquired it in 1945. It inspired him to design and produce a larger version and join the makers of such cars as Keller, King Midget, Playboy, Crosley and Tucker to try to get a piece of the booming postwar market. By one count, seventeen of these unconventional seven passenger coupés were built between 1947 and 1949. Learn more @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=93273
