A Christmas Story (1983)
Commander 57 USIn several street scenes during the movie, almost every car appears to be from the mid to late 1930's.
If the action was from '45 to '53 I would expect to see many cars from that time period.

I agree with Fintail that the time period is supposed to be around 1939 to 1940.
(Not earlier as "The Wizard of Oz" had been released.)

14stutz USThe truck is marked "Chippewa Vol. Fire Department". It's from Doyletown, Wayne County Ohio, about 30 miles south of Cleveland.
Many FDs have old trucks restored for parades...wonder if it's still there or if it's owned by a private party?

Yes, it was a two-door, pink (probably primer) with a black firewall. It still had its vinyl top installed.
There was also the bodyshell of a two-door convertible with a rumble seat (which was missing). Neither car had hoods or fenders.

I'm guessing they were rented from restorers or rodders since they were both in nice shape, not wrecks.
Exteriors were filmed in Cleveland.

fintail CAI think it might be a '47, a '46 had a full chrome grille surround.

I always saw that car as an anachronism in the movie, which in my mind took place in 1939-40 (I don't think it was every exactly specified in the film)

I swear there's a Lincoln Zephyr driving by in a scene too, but I haven't seen this movie in about a year, so I am not sure.
