4610 Pet Lane
This 1950 Ford Club Coupe is a V8 cruiser with plenty of custom touches, but the real trick is that none of it takes away from the authentic classic car feeling. It makes for a great combo where showmanship is maximized without sacrificing authenticity.
A bold red really sets the tone nicely for this Ford. After all, the coupe body was the one with the sleeker style, and the color shows it off with a radiant gloss that attracts attention without looking out of place. The same goes for the bright whitewall tires and even brighter chrome. And the 1950 cars were known for doing even more with the now iconic bullet-nose design. What really makes this one stand out from the crowd is how it has all the best custom elements that you would put on a car in the 1950s. This includes the dual spotlights, windshield sunshade, fender skirts, and extra brightwork details like the headlight eyelids, front fender accents, and door handle guard. And of course, nothing beats the look of a continental kit on the rear. So the result is a car that looks absolutely period-correct while also looking absolutely distinct.
The interior continues to hold true to the 1950s. The gray striped cloth on both rows has a comfortable feel, and the door panels have the same two-tone to match nicely. Plus, with the carpeting, dash, and headliner all done in a harmonizing gray, there's an overall impression of a dignified and correct classic. From the driver's seat it looks nicely detailed with everything from the factory radio that's still there for display to the artful steering wheel with intricate trim. There's even the correct insignia trim on the door tops. It makes for an atmosphere that feels thoughtfully stock.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks nice showcased in glowing bronze. Plus, the engine bay is nicely detailed, including the correct oil-bath air cleaner. And while the presentation is highly authentic, you will also notice the upgrade to a 12 volt system and an alternator. It makes for a better driver's car, and this motor loves to run. The flathead V8 makes a terrific tune from the dual exhaust, and the three-speed manual transmission lets you control that soundtrack with a cool classic column-shifted feeling. And as you look underneath the car, you can spot the clean look that translates into a confident feeling on the road.
This is one of those cool classics that loves to respect its history while also making sure it never gets lost in a crowd. So if you want to stand out in all the best way, call today!
