    No it wasn't, but it was newer than the Studebaker.

    To me it looks like a 50 or 51 Studebaker, the ford I can't say more about than that it's a 49 to 51 model.

    I think you are right on that. The vertical taillights on the Studebaker indicate it is a '50 or '51. The ford is likely a '49 or '50.

    The Studebaker trunk handle is not correct for a 1951. The Ford appears to be a 1951 to me.

    1949-1950 Fords had small taillights. 1951 Fords had a wider taillight with a "chrome" trim strip on the quarter panel to meet up with the end of the wider taillight (quarter panel not changed).

    It's definitely a '51 (see upper pic from Ford parts catalog).20180106101127FD-9463.jpg

    I don't believe Sweet Caporal (or "Sweet Caps") cigarettes were ever sold in the U.S.

    9895 -- ‚ÄčI agree with Craig. The 1946/48 Plymouth on the right has an Ontario license plate, probably 1949.

    That appears to be a true color postcard taken with either 'Kodachrome' or 'Ecktachrome' film to me.

    Agreed, Craig; it seems like I've seen that previously, as a postcard. 'Love the 1955 Ford Tropical Rose, rarely seen on a monotone car, however. BP

    (re: post 9905) Same here. I even enlarged/zoomed in, but couldn't decide if it is one of the back row cars, or the military truck to the right? Best I can guess, the newest car I see is 1954. Enough time for surplus military trucks to become dispersed throughout the country. However, I am not savvy enough to distinguish Studebaker produced military trucks. I know the WWII trucks mainly had the slanted windshield/cabs, but all is a guess on my part.

    On my monitor, it appears that it MAY have a white roof/top. More important to me is that it is a rare (33,165) Crown Victoria. I almost bought one off a used car lot in about 1959-1960. Also, I find it to be unusual on a S-P used car lot when it was nearly new.

    I am surprised at the row of 1930s cars on a Ford dealer's lot when, at least, the 1950s were out (and on the lot).

    33,000 is not exactly what I would call 'rare'. Then again, that figure can be broken down when one factors in the see-through Plexiglas top vs. Crown Victorias without it.

    Even rarer in comparison are the Mercury Sun Valley and Canadian Meteor Crown Victorias from the same year.

    By "rare" that was relative to the "million" 1955 Fords built (not in Studebaker terms). For comparison, there were 235,417 1955 Customline four doors built. The 33K is the number without the plastic top. There were 1999 with the plastic roof panel (compared to 1787 1955 Mercury Sun Valleys - not that different) [I don't "speak" Meteor, even though I know what they are.].

    I do not think that that car is the factory prototype. It has been decades since I saw it, but I remember the prototype as having the "normal" 1953 K body windshield and vent panes. I believe that the prototype also had the "V8"s on the quarters and I do not see them on this picture. I believe that the pictured car is an aftermarket creation made by cutting the roof off a Starliner post production.

    I noticed that like the prototype this car was updated with the 1954 parking light assemblies (grille bars), but it did not get the 1954 bumperettes as I believe that the prototype got.
