A great vintage presentation mixed with subtle upgrades makes this 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe sedan instantly attractive. So when you can get a proper flathead V8 classic for such a nice price, it's worth paying attention.
Ford took extra time developing its post-war design, and the result was a line of cars that became icons. There is a great sense of classic style with the full-length trim, exposed polished trunk hinges, and wide whitewalls. And we all love the bullet-nose chrome front end that also told people there was the mighty eight-cylinder under the hood. But this one also loves to show off plenty of custom style with the polished hubcaps, blue-dot taillights, tinted windows, and wide dual exhaust tips. They deleted many of the badges and trim so that there's a smoother look to this style. And the metallic blue is obviously an upgrade later in life. It gives this one a hint of street machine style. We kind of like how the overall finish makes this feel like a high school hot rod. But if you want a show-quality shine, the value price also leaves room in your budget to get exactly what you want.
Inside, you can instantly tell they invested correctly in this classic. The custom two-tone gray and blue on the seats and door panels is part of a more recent upgrade, and even the carpeting, dash, and headliner all coordinate. As a true sedan, you have plenty of room to carry family and friends in comfort. There are a few subtle upgrades to keep everyone happier, like front seatbelts and cup holders. But the driver is the one who gets to enjoy this the most. You get a true vintage feeling gripping the classic and artful steering wheel. And you know this was meant for cruising because the upgraded Bosch VDO auxiliary gauge package really keeps you in-tune with what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay is a great mix of cool hot rod classic and good modern upgrades. It starts with a flathead V8, and we even have a receipt from 2016 for a rebuild. It has cool/classic elements like the dual carbs on a Fenton intake. But there are also the right upgrades, like an aluminum radiator, steel braided lines with AN fittings, and an upgraded 12-volt system with an alternator. It fires up nicely, and this makes a sweet tune out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. The three-speed manual transmission lets you control that soundtrack while also giving it a powerful feeling around town. The manual overdrive is even said to work on this classic cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the original bill of sale, maintenance records, and build receipts. This is a great deal on a cool classic. So don't miss out, call today!
