    You might as well trade for a dodge if you can't decide on one of those cars. Had my 50 ford since 73. My dad had it before I did and his brother first (in 55). And no, they are not all the same and NOT everyone has had one. On a lighter note I got a 54 chevy grill in my
    shoe box. Use what suits you.

    as most everyone has said it's up to you , I have my
    shoebox and have never turned my eyes away from a sweet
    chevy . Especially a 54 , there like a hot chick all diferent years
    and colors but nice and with potential all the same .

    I like the lines of the Ford Better. Just my opnion.

    Why not use your own opnion and pick one that makes YOU happy?

    I like just about anything pre 1955 whether it be a ford, chevy or a mopar product. I sold my 53 Chevy 210 club coupe to buy a 1950 Ford tudor sedan. I don't regret it. The 53/54 are among my favorites though.

    My favorite movie lol, that's why I got my 1950 Ford. I originally had intentions on building a Thunder Road 50 clone.

    It really boils down to what your personal preference is.
     
  9. the Ford, .....if you ask me, and you just did :D

    I have a '53 Chevy, that I like...but if I was offered a '50 Ford, I would go for it, no matter 6 or 8 cyl. Please keep us posted and, yes we all love to see pics of them both !

    Go with the chevy!! You can't lose!
     
  13. If the Ford was a coupe, I'd do it. Otherwise I'd go the Chevy route. I've had 3 -54's and my current is a 53 COUPE. LOVE em' Lots of parts available.

    I think I would go with the Chevy, also like the Ford though... Both cars are cool, but think the Chevy is a bit more "brutal" when customized than the Ford... :)

    Ford would have more appeal to me, Chevies were big and bulby looking. Customized I like the Ford better as well. Flathead would be a plus, Stovebolts can be cool but the flathead would be cooler if that was the engine. My opinion for what its worth.
