So nice to see some "Plain Jane" cars.  They were more the norm in most neighborhoods back in the '50's than the upscale versions were.  I like both, but give an edge to CHEVY.  Thanks for the great work you do each day on this feature John Bono.  My wife and I look at them every night together.

Both are very basic transportation but I'll settle for the Chevrolet 150.  The Ford likely gave similar spartan service.

Both are nice, but the Chevy is iconic. It gets my vote.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

Tough choice, but seeing these side by side the Ford looks better proportioned.  I like both, but Ford gets my nod.  And it's great to see the base trims of these famous subjects.

I love both of these cars in any body style or trim level but the 55 Chevy is my fave of that decade in its price range.  Better build quality too IMHO.

The Ford looks better in any trim level.

I'm all about the 55 Chevrolet.  It is my favorite of the tri series.

Since I had a '55 Chevrolet, it's getting my vote.
