A distinct cruiser style, correct V8 power, and true value price
all make this 1954 Ford Customline Tudor a great classic built to
The paint on this one sets the tone right. You have a dark matte
green and more glossy white. It's a cool looking contrast that
gives the car a bit of a rockabilly vibe. This is furthered by
details like the side window visors and top-mount rear view mirror.
Even the upgraded 17-inch wheels are done in a classic cruiser

Ford. This even has a year-correct block! Like the rest of the car,
it likes to have a classic and purposeful presentation. But as you
dig a little deeper, you also see that this has some nice upgrades,
like the 12-volt electrical system and a newer carb. That's why
this remains a strong runner today. The dual exhaust has the right
tune for this car's attitude, and you get full control over it all
with the three-speed manual transmission. Plus, the upgraded wheel
package means you get to fit better modern tires. So this is a true
