NICE SHOEBOX DROP TOP, 239 FLATHEAD V8, 3SP MANUAL, GREAT DRIVER, PERIOD COLORS
If you're a fan of the cars that got Detroit humming after WWII, then you already know this convertible. The 1950 Ford Custom was part of that great style revolution that brought a new era of sleekness into design. So to find a turnkey ready droptop that represents this era so well is a true gem.
This Ford gets it right. The light green paint is the perfect pastel hue to represent the era correctly. It looks fantastic on the body, and it even looks great in the little places such as the alternating color on the stylized wheel trim. And the black folding roof gives this all the appeal of mint chocolate. Like any good 1950s car, there's plenty of chrome on the bumpers and on the highly stylized grille. In the middle of that bullet nose there's an "8" just so everyone knew back then that you were piloting the big motor. Whitewalls, fender skirts, complete trim sweeping down the profile, and that special hood ornament. This convertible has everything you remember, and so its attraction is timeless.
Inside the exterior green is continued on the door tops and dash. And now it's joined by a fantastic two-tone black and white combo. You'll love showing this one off because the interior lets everyone know it's a complete classic as it nicely intertwines the two colors on the seats and side panels. This one feels so authentic right down to the big round speedometer nestled behind the Custom line's chrome ring steering wheel. Even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes! The trunk looks great, too, with its correctly colored spare wheel on a full-size bias ply whitewall.
The period-correct presentation continues under the hood, where the 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 is showcased in glowing bronze. The engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner matching the block, and the radiator hoses are so crisp, they look like they are diving into the motor. But more than just looking good, the flathead is a great engine for enjoying classic motoring. A glasspack on the exhaust gives you a little extra rumble, and the three-speed manual transmission lets you control that soundtrack while also giving it a powerful feeling around town if you so desire.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the classic that you'll love to drive and love to show off. Since not too many cars do it as well as this one, you might want to hurry up and grab it before someone else does. Call today!!!
