Assuming each Beaver episode happens after the one(s) before it, Ward seems to have retrieved his old car after buying a new one in the previous episode, Leave It to Beaver: Wally's Car Accident
(1962). There Wally busts the headlight of Ward's new 1963 Plymouth Sport Fury (license number HBC-743). Here, Ward once again comes home in his "old" 1962 Plymouth Belvedere (license number WJG 865), the same car and license plate seen in the Season 6 opening credits. See more
After Beaver calls Shirley the names and she begins to cry, her two friends sympathize with her and try to comfort her. Yet only a few seconds earlier, after Beaver's first insult, the two girls can't help but laugh. See more

It happens to all of us. I remember once the kids called me "elephant ears".
Did it bother you?
No, not at all. It was Winter, and I just wore a stocking cap to school and pulled it down over my ears.
Oh, Ward, what did you do when the warm weather came?
I learned to fight.
