I was going to say Ford, but on reflection, I'm not sure that any of these has an advantage over the rest. A tie!

A slight nod to the Chevrolet although all three are nice looking cars.

Ford coupe over Plymouth coupe by a nose, Chevy a close third.  This pic of the Ford doesn't do it any favors....looks a bit high in the roof.

I have the Plymouth by a nose.  That grille is very cool.

I agree with Jack about that Ford roof as pictured.  The real Ford coupe was much better balanced.  Dad had one and I drove it some, and he also had a '47 Chevy with that odd transmission.  I was never around a Plymouth of that era.  My choice is the Ford, despite the strange picture.

(later) Here's another picture of the '47 Ford coupe, and, just for fun, here's the '47 Chevy coupe with a dealer-installed option.

Never really cared for the coupes of this era, now the torpedo backs on the other hand we’re the cats meow!

Absolutely the CHEVY.  The Ford is completely odd looking and the Plymouth looks bulky to me, while the Chevy looks like motion even when standing still.

The only thing odd about the Ford are the comments that some think it's odd.

Chevy, dislike the fast-back. Ford, don't care for the styling but love the V8 engine. Plymouth, like the styling/design but the drive train needs help. 

Plymouth, Ford, Chevy
