This 1953 Ford Customline Club Coupe has all the vintage details
you love inside and out, and it's even a proper cruiser style with
flathead V8 power and manually engaged overdrive.
Ford had a great-looking style in '53. Not only is there a
jet-inspired ornament, but also the trim running down the back half
of the car looks like the profile of a plane in flight. Even the
taillights look like afterburners. So this really knows how to
represent the dawn of the rocket age. Of course, the appeal here
really goes to the heart of a classic cruiser. Big chrome bumpers,
whitewall tires, and a hint of metallic in the paint get your
nostalgia going. And there are great details, too, like the
windshield overhang and a full pinstriping package.
Inside is a tasteful gray interior. The comfortable velour-like
cloth has the fresh feeling of a more recent investment, but this
design has a great '50s look that will keep you loving this vintage
ride. In fact, this one really likes to keep the classic attitude
going, right down to details like the working AM radio. And don't
forget to check out the steering wheel. 1953 was Ford's 50th
anniversary, and so these have a special center cap commemorating
Ford's flathead V8 is a legend all on its own for the power it
provides, and the 239 cubic-inch displacement would be the largest
installed in the Ford cars. In fact, this is a moment of pride for
Ford owners, because this would be the final year for these
legendary V8s. It presents well in the engine bay with the tall oil
bath air cleaner and copper-colored block/heads. This is a
well-maintained package that fires up readily. There's a little V8
bark from the motor that's just enough to make you fall in love
with the Flathead all over again. You get proper control from the
column-shifted three-speed manual transmission and the manually
engaged overdrive adds to the cruising versatility.
This is the best of rolling nostalgia. So if you're looking to get
an extra tingle when you drive, don't miss this Fabulous Fifties
