1957-59 Ford Ranchero: "Handsome Caller .. .Husky Hauler"
Car-based pickups weren't unknown before World War II, but only Hudson and Crosley built them briefly after the war. Meanwhile, Ford had been producing such a vehicle-the "Ute"- in Australia for decades. For 1957, Ford imported that car-pickup concept to America as the Ranchero, as Tim Howley relates.

1947 Chrysler Town and Country Convertible
Though one could argue that it wasn't very exciting mechanically, nor even all that unique, the postwar Town and Country convertible had class-loads of it. Massive, opulent, and impeccably finished, it is one of the most desirable "woodies" ever built.

1949-52 Pontiac: Sensible Postwar Silver Streaks
Pontiac made its fame selling sensible cars priced just above Chevrolet. Dependability and the lowest priced straight-eight around were its virtues. For 1949, the all-new styling was sexy-but Arch Brown insists that value-per-dollar was the bottom line.
