4610 Pet Lane
The 1950 Ford Custom coupe certainly lives up to the "custom" part of its name with the vibrant paint, an A/C interior, and the versatility of a five-speed controlling the flathead V8.
Bullet-nose Fords are now true icons of the era, and the coupes have an especially nice silhouette. The turquoise paint is a cool color that is absolutely a 1950s kind of style, but with a vibrant look that also likes to get noticed in modern times. And that seems to set the overall tone right for this car. There are some people who might want to make improvements to the finish, and the value price leaves room in your budget for that. But what this one is really about is delivering a true cruiser style that's not afraid of the streets. That's why it also has a ton of cool/classic upgrades, like the faux lake pipes, and detailed hubcaps.
The interior is what you want in a classic that wants to drive. The two rows of bench seats have a tasteful white vinyl and a hint of classic tuck and roll inserts. The door panels are done to match, as the exterior turquoise returns on the dash for thoughtful coordination. Details like the two-piece windshield and classic steering wheel give you the right feeling of a vintage cruiser. But the auxiliary gauge trio and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning are instant reminders that one is an upgraded driver. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
Under the hood is a classic 239 cubic-inch flathead V8. But just like the rest of the car, you can tell there have been investments in driver-oriented upgrades. This includes the finned heads, newer plug wires, and an upgrade to a 12-volt system with an alternator. Plus, the dual air cleaners tell you this now has a dual carb setup. It's all about keeping this hardy motor a strong runner. Upgrades like the glasspack-style dual exhaust and a modern treat behind the whitewall tires help make this a more fun cruiser. And the upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission gives you more gears to fully enjoy the powerband.
This is the classic coupe that has been properly upgraded to be a fun and easy weekend cruiser. Don't miss out, call today!
