For Sale: 1949 Ford Custom in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

If you love the look of the legendary 1949 Ford Custom Coupe, then this is the one you've always been dreaming about building. It has the sleek lines you love, but now it has been upgraded to a big 500 cubic-inch V8. And this fresh build has the right details - from upgraded paint to an A/C interior - to make sure this custom is admired for more than just its power.

Ford's first post-war design is now a true legend, and the coupe version is one of the most desirable around. The long hood, rounded glass house, and long trunk give it a great profile. Plus, it has awesome details, like the bright chrome front end with a bullet-nose Ford V8 logo in the center. The Custom trim runs the length of the car while highlighting a hint of rear fender skirt built into the design. And the wraparound taillights look great as they give the rear fender a hint of tailfin. But that's all what Ford gave you from the factory, and you can really tell this one has something more. The dark green paint has a smooth look of a more modern application (remember there's less than 300 miles on the total build,) and it has a metallic element that looks great in the sunlight. Some trim was removed and the door handles were deleted to make sure this coupe also looks smoother.

Just like the outside, the interior keep the classic style while hinting at something extra. The exterior green returns on the door tops and dash, and now it's joined by a tasteful tan. Not only does the color combo look awesome, but also the seats, door panels, and carpeting all have a fresh look. And we love the feel of the suede-like headliner. The AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, 12-volt plug, and cold-blowing air conditioning are all cleanly installed upgrades that make this classic nice for modern driving. It's also much easier to get comfortable behind the wheel thanks to upgrades like the tilt steering column and a crisp Haneline gauge package.

Under the hood is the best upgrade of them all. While this was the era for Ford flathead power, the massive 500 cubic-inch Cadillac V8 was expertly installed to look like it belonged since day one. You'll love showing off this upgrade thanks to the polished components like the valve covers, air topper, compressor, and more. Plus, you'll also spot good supporting pieces, like the aluminum radiator. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. GM's TH400 three-speed transmission is built for stout use and easy automatic shifting. And you have the right cruising features, like power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern treads on the classic whitewalls.

This is the custom Ford coupe that's made for both showing and enjoying. So don't miss this deal on such a fresh and cool build. Call today!!!
