Ford was hitting on all eight cylinders in 1955, and the dazzling
Customline coupe had a style edge on the shoebox Chevys. With the
big 292 V8 and a great interior, this two-tone hardtop is true art
deco on wheels.
Following quite close to the correct color scheme of Mountain Green and Snowshoe White, this Customline really has great '50s flair. These Fords were instantly recognizable with their sweeping chrome trim that divided the two-tone combinations, and it extended from the headlight all the way back to the tail. It serves to lengthen the car and adds artful angles to the sheetmetal. Speaking of the panels, take some time to appreciate how straight every piece looks. Without this attention to detail the trim would never look as stellar, and the profile wouldn't be this nice. But the real reason why you love a classic Ford is that it's nostalgia on wheels. This is the era of full-width wraparound bumpers, massive hood ornaments leading the way, and the taillights inspired by the now-iconic Thunderbird. Finish it off with bright half-moon hubcaps and whitewalls that fit the color scheme, and you're looking at a budget-friendly classic that instantly grabs attention.
The two-tone green vinyl and cloth interior is comfortable to sit in and great to show off when this one is parked. Plus, the side panels, carpeting, and dash are all part of this coordinating package to create a quality uniform appearance. And speaking of the dash, we know you love the period-correct touches like the Thunderbird-style Plexiglas speedometer, "Magic Air" heat/defrost controls, and the AM radio for display. But because we know you're going to want to enjoy this vintage coupe in modern times, there are some nice upgrades to extend your comfort like an auxiliary engine temperature gauge and modern AM/FM/CD stereo.
Under the hood is Ford's trusty and powerful 272 cubic-inch Ford V8 motor, and it's presented quite nicely for this U-code coupe. So you'll enjoy all the correct components like the tall silver oil bath air cleaner, matching Ford script on the valve covers, bold red block, and even the windshield washer fluid bag. And because this is set up to be a true cruiser, there's an upgraded Champion aluminum radiator to keep the V8 running cool. Plus, you'll be able to choose on demand if you want the dual exhaust to sound mild or wild thanks to the three-speed manual transmission.
This is the vintage Ford that looks and drives like a far more expensive classic. So the only way you'll be disappointed is if you miss this deal. Call today!!!
