800 Derita Road, Ste. A
A cool cruising drop-top with all the right elements for a great vintage presentation is an attractive proposition. So this 1950 Ford Custom convertible just seems to have the right mix of original features balanced with subtle upgrades to make it irresistible.
A creamy yellow like this is one of those colors that fits in with this car's era perfectly. It's even quite close to what was on Ford's palette for 1950. The real difference here is that you can see there was a solid investment later in life to make sure this one knows how to radiate in the sunshine. The result is a classic convertible that has the perfect balance of looking correct while still having an undeniable attraction every time the sunlight highlights its luster. The paintwork also helps with the overall premium presentation. These Fords are already one of the most attractive post-war designs around, but when the trim is complete from the bullet nose, to the full-length side trim, to the wraparound bumpers, well then, you know you're looking at something special. In fact, this one has been under long-term respected care. So while every car has a few little marks to find, you're far more likely to discover spots from storage and washing than you will from joyriding.
The tan roof has a clean look, and the earthy color harmonizes with the paint. But for true style, you're going to want to fold it back. The red and black interior looks bold against the exterior yellow, but the full package is also dignified, right down to the button top seatbacks. This one feels quite clean and authentic. You'll love grabbing the stylized Ford steering wheel and looking out over the dash with the large art deco speedometer. Even the AM radio is still there for display. As vintage as this is, you can also feel the subtle reassurance of quality investments. And the upgrade to a comfy velour on the seats is going to be something you'll welcome on any sunny day with the top down.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks great under the hood with the bronze block continuing this drop-top's premium presentation. The engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner matching the block, and the radiator hoses are proper reproductions that won't sag. So it's a great look to a hardy motor, and you know these are often easy to tune/maintain on a weekend. The three-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the V8 and its soundtrack. And this one was made to be a driver with some worthwhile upgrades, like a 12-volt electrical system, an alternator, and front disc brakes.
This Ford of the most influential post-WWII car designs, and this drop-top has all the right touches to be the one you'll love to take the long way to car shows. So we suggest you hurry before some else snatches it up. Call now!
