A great vintage presentation mixed with subtle upgrades makes this 1950 Ford Custom tudor sedan instantly attractive. So when you can get a cool flathead V8 cruiser for such a nice price, it\'s worth paying attention.
The has a smooth and even glow to show off the lines of Ford\'s first post-war car design, and this nice shine adds to the car\'s nostalgia. Of course, chrome always captures the Americana feeling, and this does it with nicely presented brightwork on the wraparound bumpers, full-length trim, and the bullet-nose grille that also told people there was a mighty V8 under the hood. You\'ll even love showing off the total wheel package. There are color-matched steelies behind the two-piece trim, and it has everything from newer whitewalls to rear fender skirts. There have been the right investments in the car, so the glass is clear, the window seals are new, and the doors close with confidence. Since \"Custom\" is in the name of this one, you really feel like it lives up to that attitude with custom pinstriping that loves to highlight the classic Ford family crest both front and rear. And while there is a cool set of lake pipes for a display, the V8 really sings its tune out of the large polished dual rear exhaust tips.
Inside you can instantly tell they invested correctly in this classic. The custom two-tone white and blue on the seats and door panels is part of an upgrade from a few years ago. It\'s striking, but just like the exterior upgrades, it doesn\'t look out of place on a 1950s custom cruiser. And since there\'s plenty of room for family and friends, you get to share this cool look with everybody. There are even nice upgrades, like a removable cup holder center console, seatbelts, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. But the driver is the one who really gets to enjoy this the most. The classic steering wheel feels great in your hands, and you know this was meant for cruising because the upgraded VDO gauge package keeps you in-tune with what\'s going on under the hood.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks nice showcased in classic bronze. Plus, the engine bay is nicely detailed, including the correct oil-bath air cleaner. There are also some nice details for a good driver, like the 12-volt electrical system upgrade. And the Douglas-style police exhaust manifolds let the V8 exhale with a touch of added power while keeping the right vintage attitude. And the three-speed manual transmission with overdrive lets you control the motor and the glasspack-style exhaust rumble with a cool/classic column-shift feeling.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, the owner\'s manual, and maintenance records. This is a great deal on a well-presented classic custom cruiser. So don\'t miss out, call today!
