This 1954 Ford Customline Club Coupe has rarity, beauty, and style.
So more than just a sleek black coupe, check out everything from
the two-tone interior to the debut of the OHV motor.
The design of the Club Coupe is a special one. It looks a bit
sleeker than the Tudor sedan that was also offered, because the
longer trunk line gives it some nice proportions. And there's
rarity in this style, considering Ford made only one of these for
almost every nine Tudors that came off the line. It's this
uniqueness has likely contributed to why this one has been treated
with care. You first notice the awesome brightwork. The 1954 cars
had a revised grille that was so wide that it reached around the
corners just like the bright bumper below it. The side trim is
complete, right down to the full-length line that highlights the
straightness of this sheetmetal. It all ends in a chrome rear light
surrounds that hints at the tailfin era that was just around the
corner (especially the Thunderbird coming the next year!) Even the
trim in the rear looks great with the Ford family crest and the
cool Fordomatic script that told others you could afford for the
auto transmission option. All of this presents exceptionally well
because the upgraded black paint provides a nice backdrop and
plenty of gloss. There are even some cool custom pieces, like the
upgraded hood ornament, driver's spotlight, side window overhangs,
and Cadillac wheel covers. It all adds to the cool 1950s cruiser
Inside, the red and white two-tone really continues the classic
feeling nicely. And we love the thoughtfulness of how it's
intertwined in places like the contrast piping on the bright white
seats. There's even more nostalgia when you slip behind the wheel.
This is where you can tell today that the Thunderbird was on its
way. The engine-turned panel and nifty speedometer in a clear
acrylic panel (currently for display) are hallmarks of the iconic
personal coupe. As you look around the rest of this coupe, you're
going to see more great vintage items. It's everywhere from the
working AM radio to the very original-looking full size spare in
While you've already seen plenty of cool features, the best one is
under the hood. 1954 was the first year for the new overhead valve
V8. The U4 in the VIN tells you that the 239 cubic-inch powerplant
is the factory-correct motor for this Ford. It's exceptionally
showcased in the engine bay with the tall, bold red oil bath air
cleaner and the valve covers to match. You'll love looking at all
the original-style components, even the windshield washer fluid
bag. On the road, you'll be quite happy you chose a model year with
the new motor because it gives this cruising Ford a little extra
kick of power over the flathead cars. There are some nice everyday
upgrades like a 12-volt electric system and even an electric fan.
Plus, the three-speed Fordomatic automatic transmission keeps this
distinct coupe an easy way to spend a day.
