A regular feature here on The Daily Driver Project is the “Street Spot.” We love seeing vintage cars as daily drivers, out on the streets where they belong. When we see a vintage car worth sharing, we’ll post it as a Street Spot. Sometimes it will be a beauty, sometimes it will be a beater, but then again – even the beater cars are beautiful to us!

So Sara is in Northern California visiting a friend, and what does she find? A 1966 Ford Custom 500, the budget friendly driver of its time. A four door for convenience and large enough to haul around the whole family. The 500 added a chrome trim package to step up its looks. The Ford Custom was also the ever-popular cop car of its time. But in this blue you see suburbia written all over it.

    When I was a small child, our next door neighbors had a car almost exactly like this one. I remember riding to school in that blue vinyl interior. Interesting note: Ford used those same wheel covers as an option on the Bronco from 1967 all the way up through the final model year for the original one, 1977. They were also used on various up-level Ford pickups in the late 1960s.
