1950

The 1949 Ford suffered several problems that were addressed in the 1950 Ford. Overall quality was much improved.

Minor updates were made on the 1950 Ford. The most noticeable change was a new Ford crest that appeared on the 50 Ford hood and trunk. Additional change included a revised grille with parking lamps, a new steering wheel horn ring and pushbutton door handles.

The 1950 Fords were much better, much tighter and very quiet in corners and rough road driving. Ford Motor Co. advertising claims aimed at signaling an improved verison of the 1949 Ford included "50 Ways New... 50 Ways Finer - The '50 Ford!"
