Never knew fords were called a shoebox, always though that was a 55 chevy term ... learning everyday..

I guess we call the cars of today beans or suppositories, that is what they look like .

I definitely favor the shoebox look myself, nice car ya got there. Lots of ford folks around these parts.

For shame, Pepi. 49, 50, and 51 were the original Shoe Box Fords: the end of the Fat Fendered Fords. But so you don't feel too bad, I did not know the Tri Five Bowtie boys had borrowed the term.

My project, "The Judge" is pretty much finished except for a dang 700R4 4th gear / overdrive issue. It's taken five years to get from there to here fully documented on my site :

Shoebox applies to many.

Pretty certain that's what we call " twin spinners". Around here. Well that's what I grew up with, a friend of a friend just bought a mint one, paid about 25k from memory.
