For Sale: 1950 Ford Crestline in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1950 Ford Crestline has a design that's always in demand. And so to find one with a such a cool look, flathead V8 power, and such a detailed package makes for quite an attractive classic. The affordable price is just the cherry on top.


This is the debut year for a special package. The Crestline was created to be a very distinct Ford. The two-door sedan really stepped up its elegance with a factory vinyl roof and special paint package. In fact, that black and red is a striking combo with a high-gloss finish, and the hooking trim that separates them look more like it belongs on a Lincoln than a Ford. The details are terrific with straight body lines, fender skirts, whitewalls, and the kind of chrome on the bumpers and grille that will have people checking out their reflection. There is charm everywhere you look on this Ford. In fact, the odometer even reflects actual mileage. So seven decades later, and this has really just averaged just over 1,400 miles annually! And because this one shows the right signs of being a true Crestline, it will always have rarity. Ford only made 8,703 examples in this inaugural year, and that only represented about one percent of total car production.


The two-tone theme continues inside, and you can really see a quality investment and it keeps it feeling quite vintage. The cloth seating has the right pattern for a '50s machine, right down to the button-top seatbacks, but you can instantly tell by the condition that this is a far fresher application. The door panels carry the same stripped pattern inserts as part of their detailed package. A taut headliner, clean dash, and fresh carpeting all make the interior quite inviting. This one loves to keep impressing in the details - everywhere from the working AM radio to the special Crestline steering wheel.


The correct presentation continues under the hood with the 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 showcased in glowing bronze. The engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner, and the radiator hoses are so crisp, they look like they are diving into the motor. But more than just looking good, the flathead is a great engine for enjoying classic motoring. This one fires up nicely, accelerates smoothly, and give you a crisp action with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.


Rarity, style, and true classic car distinction all come together in an impressive Crestline. Don't miss this special cruiser, call today!!!
