The Streets of San Francisco

The Streets of San Francisco

I’ve been geeking out on these videos for a while- Mainly shot on the street of major US cities between the late 30s and late 50s. The goal is to try to find as many street-driven hot rods and customs as possible. I always figured the 50s Los Angeles footage would yield the most results, but the pickings have been fairly slim. Today we have a post-war (’47 or ’48?) San Francisco film complete with a Police escort, and it’s chock full of great cars. See if you spot: Some guys working on a Model A sedan, three Lincoln Zephyrs, a Woodie, ’37 Studebaker rear window, and gen-u-wine Jalopy. Looks to be a ’32 Roadster with wire wheels, chopped convertible top, track bar rear bumper (a must for San Francisco parkers!) and perhaps a sunk-in license plate? I only wish the cameraman got a clear side or front shot of the car to help identify it…
