Do You Remember these 1950’s Classic Dream Cars?


The 1950s were the era of classic cars. There were so many great cars made that we still love to look at and drive in today. These photos might just bring up some great memories from the past and make you long for the days spent driving in these cars.

We rounded up a list of some of the most recognizable cars from the 1950s. Some were more attainable and some were very expensive race cars you probably only dreamed of owning. How many of these cars made in the ’50s do you remember?


1. 1953 Buick Skylark

The Buick Skylark had one of the biggest engines of the decade! (And my personal favorite from this list, I mean, just look at the video below! I wanna make a bid so bad!)

The car also had technology that made it shift much easier than other cars. It also had power steering, power brakes, and a convertible top. In 1953, a new one would cost about $4,500.


2. 1959 Chevy Corvette

Many people know and love Corvettes. Near the end of the ’50s, this Corvette had more chrome and a bigger engine.

There were many different options as well, including different speeds and you could choose automatic or manual.


3. 1959 Pontiac Bonneville

In 1959, the brand Pontiac had been around for about 50 years already! They wanted to create a new and unique car and the Bonneville was born.

It was one of the longest cars in that time and had a lot of horsepower. That orange paint job in the Bonneville below in the video is gorgeous too. Love it!

4. 1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk

Many people know the Studebaker brand for their front ends. If you’re familiar with a Packard, this car was essentially just a remake of the Packard after Studebaker bought them out.

They made sure to make the front end look like a Studebaker, though!


5. 1954 Hudson Hornet Hollywood
