RARE CLUB COUPE, VERY PERIOD CORRECT, BELIEVED ACTUAL MILES, 239 FLAT HEAD V8
A cool 1950 Ford Custom Coupe with every period-correct accessory you can imagine is already a bold standout. But as you dig deeper, you'll see that this one was invested in correctly, too, so that you'll confidently show off this attention-grabbing classic everywhere.
The light blue fits into this car's era perfectly. Not only is a great '50s style color, but it was also given a professional respray a while back. So the result is a classic coupe that doesn't look like it has brand new color, which gives it that perfect balance of looking like a pristine original while still having an undeniable attraction every time the sunlight highlights its luster. The Club Coupe body is one of the most sought-after designs from the period. More expensive and sleeker than the two-door sedan, these are far rarer and much more desirable. Plus, the Custom Deluxe had extra trim all around the car. So iconic elements like the bullet-nose grille and full-length trim are joined by extra brightwork on the front and rear fenders. Plus, this one really turns the shine up a notch with great period-correct upgrades like the dual spotlights (for display), headlight eyelids, curb feelers, and tall bumper overriders. There's even extra trim around the sunshade. But even with all these cool-cruising upgrades, don't forget to spot all the correct details, including the classic Ford badging, rear fender skirts, color-matched wheels, and iconic whitewalls.
Inside, everything is quite correct, and it looks like there have been investments to keep it that way. For example, the gray and beige striped pattern on the cloth seating is exactly what you'd expect in a 1950s machine. But this combines with the carpeting, door panels, and headliner to deliver a feeling that's far fresher than the factory. The Custom Deluxe line's correct two-spoke steering wheel with bright trim is pure 1950s cool. And beyond that, the dash looks like a time capsule. In fact, you'll love all the period-correct details like the working heater and courtesy lights. Even the truck is ready to show off with the factory jack and full-size whitewall spare.
Under the hood is the unmistakable appearance of Ford's iconic 239 flathead V8. The bronze block and oil bath air cleaner are great classic elements we all love to see. But as you dig deeper, there are also all the right signs that this is a great cruiser. The upgrade to an alternator, fresh belts, good hoses, upgraded MSD wires all tell you this is ready for the road. The motor's top end was rebuilt in 2006, it was converted to 12-volt electrics, and a new aluminum radiator was added in 2013. So yes, this has been maintained exactly how you would want your classic to be. And the result is an iconic V8 that fires up with gusto (the low mileage on the odometer is even believed to be actual!) Plus, the stainless dual exhaust is also newer to give you a clean rumble from the V8. You have complete control over this motor and its soundtrack thanks to the classic column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
This one feels solid because they invested correctly to keep it solid. The sale even comes with the owner's manual, title documentation, and maintenance records. So it's a great all-around classic coupe. A Ford like this is always in demand, so don't let it slip away. Call today!!!
