YAK Car Pic of the Day

Back when this 1950 Dodge was new, they came in two series: Coronet and Meadowbrook. The Coronet was the fancier one, with more chrome trim and interior bits, while the lower-priced Meadowbrook was available only in one model: a four-door sedan. This six-passenger Coronet coupe looks like it’s in the midst of a restoration; but that paint job? Was it really a police car at some point? Most police cars were four-doors, but it’s not an impossibility, I guess. You could have bought a new Coronet coupe for a starting price of $1,914 back in 1950. Thought to be pretty stodgy-looking back in the day, today they’re… well, still pretty stodgy-looking. This one was spotted last week in a Tonawanda driveway. Here’s a link to the old brochure.
