The 1949 Ford (reborn as the Ford Forty-Nine concept) represented a great advance in enduring automotive design. It took Chevrolet until 1955 to incorporate the slab-side full-length body and the hood and truck at the same height as the fenders, which were key features of the 1949 Ford.
In fact, the highly acclaimed 1955 Chevrolet could be described as an evolution of the 1949 Ford theme that added wraparound front and rear windows and such surface features as new taillights and side trim.
It would be interesting to see a computer illustration of those 1955 Chevrolet features skillfully overlaid on the 1949 Ford.
