Nash Dealership ca. 1949

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else get as sick of the fairly recent Chevrolet commercials where they tout the J.D. Power awards to the "Real People, Not Actors" as I do?  Wow, they are practically unwatchable.  And, they seem to come on every commercial break during football games.

Are these '49's or '50's ?  I can't tell.  The light color one with the license plate -

is that a dealer plate ?  Or ?????

I honestly couldn't say as to these being from model year 1949 vs. 1950.  One supposed difference between the two years is a slightly larger rear view window for 1950.  A little hard to see the rear windows in this photo, but I'm gonna guess that these cars are from the 1950 model year, instead of 1949.

1950 model. These have enclosed gas caps. The '49 model had an exposed gas cap.

An excellent piece of information - thank you.

You are correct !

Dad had a 1950 Statesman. The easy way to tell the 3 years apart:

1949 Had an exposed gas cap/filler on the left rear

1950 had a sheetmetal flap over the hidden gas cap/filler

1951 had raised rear fenders, maybe to simulate "Finned look"

My dad also had a 1950 Statesman four door.  He bought it new.  All the gauges were on a pod attached to the steering column.

I was not a big fan of the design, especially the skirted front wheels.
