GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this ultra-clean 1949 Ford
Custom Convertible for your consideration. The Custom was a new
model offered from Ford beginning in 1949. It was powered by either
an inline 6cyl or a V8. The example here is powered by the optional
239ci Flathead V8. The engine on this example has had Edelbrock
valve covers installed. Mated to the Flathead V8 is a smooth
shifting 3-on-the-tree manual transmission.
We see a lot of cars come through our doors and not many are as
clean as this one. Finished in a gorgeous Miami Cream color, the
paint shows minimal imperfections. All exterior chrome trim and
bumpers are in spectacular condition as are the wheels. The tan
soft top is power operated and complements the Miami Cream paint
The interior is just as clean as the exterior if not better.
Multiple colors of brown leather are featured on the interior. The
cream and brown of this car complement each other nicely making for
a very classic and stylish look. No rips or tears can be found and
all interior paint is in spectacular condition.
For the 1949 model year, the Custom nameplate was used for the top
trim level in Ford's range automobile. It was part of the
completely new redesign of Ford cars after the war. It was the
first all-new automobile design introduced by the Big Three after
World War II, civilian production having been suspended during the
war, and the 1946-1948 models from Ford, GM, and Chrysler being
updates of their pre-war models. Popularly called the "Shoebox
Ford" for its slab-sided, "ponton" design, the 1949 Ford is
credited both with saving Ford and ushering in modern streamlined
car design with changes such as integrated fenders and more.
