Love that you've given us THREE to vote on and rank!  Okay, here goes... 

#1 PLYMOUTH  #2 CHEVROLEY  #3 FORD

Now here's the deal on how I ranked them this way:

I like the DASH the best on the Plymouth and I like the body style better than the Ford.  I like the Chevy Dash better than the Ford, but I like the body style of the Chevy better, so the Ford is third.  And you ask, why is the dash so important?  Well when I'm driving the car, that's what I'm looking at.  Smile

Oh and for what it's worth, that Plymouth photo is from Minnesota at our State Fair Grounds.  I'm guessing from "Back to the 50's" weekend one year.

The Chevy was so new. It's #1 for me. The Plymouth was also new, but not quite the same revelation. Ditto plus for the Ford. So #2 and #3, respectively. All three are wonderful and important nonetheless.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

I only drove two of these, the Chevrolet and the Ford. Of these, the Chevrolet Bel Air had the better drive and road feel. The Ford in comparison felt vague and you had to pay attention to your lane. Both cars were new at the time so I think that was a general characteristic. I just did not fancy the Plymouth styling much, then and now so choose the Chevrolet here.

Chevy, Ford, Plymouth. If the '55 Ford had the '56 dash it would have been the Ford first, it is that close for me.

I like all three but the 55 Chevy is just classic.

I liked all three, too.  But the Chevy was just too square, the Ford was all over the road, it seemed, and the Plymouth had a transmission shifter that stuck out from the dashboard like a dagger pointed at the spot just between the driver and the middle front-seat passenger.  (Yes, we had those folks in the 50's.)  I waited for the '56 with its pushbuttons.  Mark me as 'like all three.  Love none.'

David my 55 Imperial has the shifter that you speak of. My choices in order are the Chevy, Ford and Plymouth. If the choice were 1956, the Ford and Chevy would trade places.

I think it`s always important,when making a choice of this nature,is to favorably consider the superfluous and whimsical...

.... Practicality ????? Haaa! Vampire

The Ford for me. All three look great, but the Ford has more class.

I agree with David, it's Chevy, Ford then Plymouth.  Chevy build quality was best as well.  I love all three cars though.
