The Birth of the 1949 Ford

Today, some great videos on the making of the redesigned 1949 Ford.  This was the first major redesign after WWII, I believe.  The car is almost an icon of the era, as the struggles from the depression and war era transformed into the hope for the future that began with the return of our soldiers after the war.  It's sleek lines mimicked the things that we were seeing in new homes at the time.  More streamlined, modern finished for a new beginning as a nation.


  1. Wow, thank you for finding these videos: so cool! :)

  2. What great videos! I have always wondered about the 1949 Ford as well as the 55' -57' Bel-Air and 56 Ford Fairlane if these cars were so popular why havent they remade them? Same old designs but with modern features! Not so much dvd players and cup holders... but thigns that may have been problens with the originals.
