A cool cruising drop-top with all the right elements for a great
vintage presentation is an attractive proposition. So this 1950
Ford Custom convertible just seems to have the right mix of
original features balanced with subtle upgrades to make it
A creamy yellow like this is one of those colors that fits in with
this car's era perfectly. It's even quite close to what was on
Ford's palette for 1950. The real difference here is that you can
see there was a solid investment later in life to make sure this
one knows how to radiate in the sunshine. The result is a classic
convertible that has the perfect balance of looking correct while
still having an undeniable attraction every time the sunlight
highlights its luster. The paintwork also helps with the overall
premium presentation. These Fords are already one of the most
attractive post-war designs around, but when the trim is complete
from the bullet nose, to the full-length side trim, to the
wraparound bumpers, well then, you know you're looking at something
special. In fact, this one has been under long-term respected care.
So while every car has a few little marks to find, you're far more
likely to discover spots from storage and washing than you will
The tan roof has a clean look, and the earthy color harmonizes with
the paint. But for true style, you're going to want to fold it
back. The red and black interior looks bold against the exterior
yellow, but the full package is also dignified, right down to the
button top seatbacks. This one feels quite clean and authentic.
You'll love grabbing the stylized Ford steering wheel and looking
out over the dash with the large art deco speedometer. Even the AM
radio is still there for display. As vintage as this is, you can
also feel the subtle reassurance of quality investments. And the
upgrade to a comfy velour on the seats is going to be something
you'll welcome on any sunny day with the top down.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks great under the hood with the
bronze block continuing this drop-top's premium presentation. The
engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner
matching the block, and the radiator hoses are proper reproductions
that won't sag. So it's a great look to a hardy motor, and you know
these are often easy to tune/maintain on a weekend. The three-speed
manual transmission gives you firm control over the V8 and its
soundtrack. And this one was made to be a driver with some
worthwhile upgrades, like a 12-volt electrical system, an
alternator, and front disc brakes.
This Ford of the most influential post-WWII car designs, and this
drop-top has all the right touches to be the one you'll love to
take the long way to car shows. So we suggest you hurry before some
else snatches it up. Call now!
