The 1953 Ford Crestline Victoria was part of Ford's return after WWII to offering a car with added styling and premium touches. Of course, when this classic vintage look is upgraded with a fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission, and an A/C interior, then you've got a great-looking classic customized to be enjoyed everywhere.
What makes this so special? Just look at the shine. The revised grille was so wide that it reached around the corners just like the bright bumper below it. The side trim is complete on everything from the line that runs through the fender and door, to the crest at the base of the hardtop roof remember only the Crestline Victorias are pillarless hardtops. It all ends in a chrome rear light surrounds that hints at the tailfin era that was just around the corner (especially the Thunderbird that was only a couple years away.) The Tahitian Turquoise with India Ivory roof is close to the colors Ford offered in '53. But just like nostalgia, this shines brighter than original thanks to a modern professional application with plenty of clearcoat. But as you get closer, this one also offers hints at how special it really is. The mirror headlight covers, large 15-inch wire wheels, and bright dual exhaust tips are a clear indicator of a custom machine. And the blue pinstriping on the hood and trunk are a page right out of the hot rod book.
Inside the two-tone continues for a great uniform look. Plus, the seats are quite comfortable thanks to plenty of soft cloth. And more of this period-correct premium feeling comes when you slip behind the factory wheel with Ford family crest on the center horn. There's plenty of room for family and friends in this coupe, and so it's great to have upgrades that keep them happy like the AM/FM/CD stereo and R134a air conditioning. And as you start to look across the interior, everything from the auxiliary gauges to the custom pinstriping on the dash signal to you that there's something special under the hood.
It's nice to see a Ford get upgraded in the engine bay, while still keeping the power in the blue oval family. This Victoria hardtop is powered by Ford's mighty 5.0-liter V8. Not only will you love lifting the hood at events to show off this more modern powerplant, but also the fuel-injected setup gives you added reliability and performance. And the header-fed dual exhaust gives a sweet rumble that tells everyone this coupe is far from stock. This was built to be a true driver, that's why you have upgrades like power brakes and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with owner's manual, this custom coupe is nicknamed "Dream Ride" and you know exactly why. Rarely do you find such a cool mix of distinctly vintage and all the right upgrades. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this Ford. Call today!!!
