Stk. 1738 1954 Ford Customline
Ford lovers rejoice! Your early fifties dream car is here. This beauty received a full rotisserie restoration to a standard beyond that of any early fifties Ford we have encountered. Starting with an ultra straight and rust free canvas, a base coat clear coat skin of True Blue Metallic was lovingly applied to the lower body and Dove Gray Metallic to the roof and fender skirts for a subtle look and with a finish that is light years beyond that of what Dearborns finest were producing at the time. With nothing left to chance in this restoration, all badging, chrome and stainless steel was re-plated and polished to an equally high luster. Underneath all this loveliness, a fully detailed undercarriage with just the right balance of gloss and texture; in full harmony with its new outer persona and offering a ride that you have to experience to believe. Open its vault like doors and you are welcomed by a luxurious split bench interior in Dove Gray, complete with contrasting Dark Gray piping. As you settle in, take note of the original transparent speedometer cluster flanked by a row of period style custom gauges which even includes a clock. Close your eyes, and you can actually hear it ticking, underscoring the quality of this exceptional automobile. Every touch point of this vehicle has been thoroughly thought out and executed. Look under the hood and you will discover that even though Ford replaced its reliable "Flat Head V-8" with an overhead valve "Y-Block" unit, that this is neither a flat head or a Y-block but that of a 5.0 liter Mustang. Rebuilt in 2005 at the point of restoration, this 302 is just the right blend of reliability and muscle to accommodate your every mood. Being a thoroughly modern classic means having power brakes, steering and air conditioning available and it does. Along with a 4-Spd automatic overdrive transmission and cruise control, you have all the makings of a true highway or boulevard cruiser. Even the trunk follows the same code of quality as the interior with the same high grade carpet and soft touch vinyl to hide and protect your valuables as you motor in a luxury that only an automobile like this can provide.
