I like them all very much so it's a close one.  I will go with the Ford coupe for looks and V-8 power.  Plymouth is second over Chevy.  I have come to like the Plymouth/Dodge coupe styling much more in recent years.

Take of the badging and I struggle to identify each model correctly. This is the curse of having been born in the fifties! I didn't grow up with these designs.

We are the same age John but I recall these cars and others of the post war era being very prevalent in my home town; even through to the late 60s.  I suspect the difference may be that I lived on the west coast which has a very temperate climate; much easier on car bodies.

@jack-dodds, I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, where you could hear the cars rusting. 😱

Today, I'm leaning to that Plymouth Deluxe. I slightly prefer the styling. The only one of these that I have driven is the 47 Ford and it was rather tired at the time.

I voted for the Chevy. I like the body-color headlight rings

Plymouth for style and Ford for the flathead motor. I'll go Plymouth.

I go with the PLYMOUTH.  Then the Ford.  As for the Chevy, to my eyes it looks old and dated and very bulbous.

Loving this generation Plymouth more and more. Ford is a close 2nd, placing the Chevrolet in last place.

Plymouth wins by its grille.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.
