Today there were two online unveilings, in fact—Nissan took the wraps off its redesigned 2021 Rogue compact SUV this morning, and this evening Lexus debuted a revamped version of its rear-drive-based compact sport sedan via a Facebook Live webcast.

1935 Ford Model 50 DeLuxe Panel Truck

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2009 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine

By Don Sikora II

The Ford Motor Company ambitiously introduced restyled lines of cars and trucks for 1935. The truck line was comprised of the light-duty Model 50 Commercial Cars and the 1½-ton Model 51. For the first time, Ford truck styling was starting to show the streamlined look the company’s passenger cars had been using since 1933. While the trucks clearly looked more modern, Ford’s recent practice of greater stylistic differentiation between car and truck models continued.
