Not mine. It says it's a '49 but it is a '50.

OK, I can do that.
I thought they would be better seen here.

'49 had the pull handle, '50 had the push button.
Also, look at where the parking lights were.
You can see they were the full size '50, where the '49 light was just a small extension of the grill.

The trunk handle on '49 was different too. It was one where you lifted the right side.

The '50 was key operated and the lid popped up a bit. '51 was different again.

Also...nothing to do with this car but, '49 and '50 Meteor hoods look like 1951 where they are straight across. But the Meteor hood is actually curved a bit on the lip and will not work on a Ford. I just found out about this recently.

More trivia for you.

'51 Ford was the first year for the hardtop, automatic trans, and key start ignition on Fords.

You're right. At first, the door handle looked like the pull style, but looked again, and it is the push button. The gas filler on the 50, had a door, where the 49 was exposed.
You're pretty sharp for a young kid.

I bought my '51 Ford Victoria in 1955.
It's long gone but I have another now.

It's an awesome website when a Ford guy is still learnin'!!! I wasn't aware of the subtle differences between the '49 and '50. Thanks for the lesson!

One more....the trunk lid hinges are inside on the '51.
Exposed on '49 and '50.
'49 and '50 dashes are the same. '51 completley different.
Same with their steering wheels.
Then there's the Crestline Ford........
