Customline 1953

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Blue Metallic
Interior Color Gray


This 1953 Ford Customline Club Coupe has all the vintage details you love inside and out, and it's even a proper cruiser style with flathead V8 power and manually engaged overdrive.

Ford had a great-looking style in '53. Not only is there a jet-inspired ornament, but also the trim running down the back half of the car looks like the profile of a plane in flight. Even the taillights look like afterburners. So this really knows how to represent the dawn of the rocket age. Of course, the appeal here really goes to the heart of a classic cruiser. Big chrome bumpers, whitewall tires, and a hint of metallic in the paint get your nostalgia going. And there are great details, too, like the windshield overhang and a full pinstriping package.

Inside is a tasteful gray interior. The comfortable velour-like cloth has the fresh feeling of a more recent investment, but this design has a great '50s look that will keep you loving this vintage ride. In fact, this one really likes to keep the classic attitude going, right down to details like the working AM radio. And don't forget to check out the steering wheel. 1953 was Ford's 50th anniversary, and so these have a special center cap commemorating it.

Ford's flathead V8 is a legend all on its own for the power it provides, and the 239 cubic-inch displacement would be the largest installed in the Ford cars. In fact, this is a moment of pride for Ford owners, because this would be the final year for these legendary V8s. It presents well in the engine bay with the tall oil bath air cleaner and copper-colored block/heads. This is a well-maintained package that fires up readily. There's a little V8 bark from the motor that's just enough to make you fall in love with the Flathead all over again. You get proper control from the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission and the manually engaged overdrive adds to the cruising versatility.

This is the best of rolling nostalgia. So if you're looking to get an extra tingle when you drive, don't miss this Fabulous Fifties Ford. Call today!!!
