NICE BUILD, 350 V8, AUTO, AIR COND, PWR STEERING, SHOEBOX, VISOR, SKIRTS, FUN!!
This handsome 1950 Ford Custom two-door coupe is exactly what you're looking for, when your preference is for hot rods with a hint of stealthy goodness. After all, this initally just looks like a top-of-the-line classic Ford, but look closer and it's the small details that let you in on the hot V8 under the hood.
Everyone loves the sleek shoebox look of Ford's first post-war design. It was fairly groundbreaking when it first appeared, which is why it became the darling of the custom car crowds. This legacy is seen on added features like the eyelids on the headlights, sun visor, dual spotlights, rear wheel covers, and wide whitewall tires. Of course another reason why these show so well is all the brightwork that details everything, from the bullet-nose grille, to the trunk hinges. But the actual body is relatively free of ornamentation, which allows the deep shine of the burgundy to really pop on this Ford's upright shoulders. All of this superior shine points to someone caring about this coupe enough to give it a detailed and expensive restoration.
The interior was given a makeover that respects the original design, yet adds a few modern functional upgrades. Bench seats fore and aft are trimmed in striped fabric and gray vinyl, so it has a '50s sensibility that's still a bit premium. Matching door panels are likewise pretty authentic, and all the factory moldings and hardware were retained. That cool two-spoke steering wheel, with bright trim, is pure 1950s space-race cool. In fact, the whole dash stays true to the original, including gauges like the speedometer and clock. You even still have the AM radio! But this one is built to be a cruiser, and that's why you have power steering and a modern R-134a air conditioning system installed discreetly under the dash.
We've already alluded to something special under the hood, and you're probably already gone ahead to see the pictures of the 350 cubic-inch crate motor. If you think it's sacrilegious to install a Chevy small-block V8 under the hood of a Ford, you'll change your mind when you realize that there is no better way to get a reliable and infinitely upgradeable powertrain. In fact, this V8 appears pretty fresh, and already has a bunch of Edelbrock performance goodies installed, including the fined valve covers, air cleaner, and a four-barrel carburetor. This motor provides plenty of power for the shoebox Ford, and makes some nice gutsy noises out of the dual exhaust. The engine is also backed up by GM's trusty TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. The installation of this full package is well done, which makes this a coupe you could most likely drive every day if you decided to.
The trim name of this upper-end for is Custom, and that's exactly what you get in this package. It's a beautiful coupe inside and out, with little touches that hint to everyone about something quite strong in the engine bay. This is the kind of classic that will get people talking about each little detail, and all this attention can be yours for a nice price. Call today!!
