According to Google and Bing statistics, 21 percent of internet buyers in search of classic cars were in pursuit of something built by Ford (See our Ford Section). Drilling down into the numbers, it appeared as if the Ford Model A was the most often searched Ford product on the internet. Ford Model A’s were so popular that they made up eight percent of the searches for classic vehicles this month. In a surprise move, Oldsmobile and Packard claimed the No.2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Both jumped up five spots from last month. Chevrolet took 4th place on the list. Chevy’s most popular model among internet buyers was the late 1950s Impala.
