For Sale: 1953 Ford Customline in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Potential is a beautiful thing, and this 1953 Ford Customline has a ton of it. It's quite a complete sedan with all the right trim and a well-earned patina. And at the heart of it all is a flathead V8 that's as eager as you are to get going.

This car shows just how much style Ford gave their sedans. The front bumper and grille both wrap around the front end. The headlights look almost frenched from the factory. The side trim runs through doors with a jet-like sweep. And the taillights were ushering in the taillight era. You can see these elements so clearly in this example because it's quite complete. This car is a running and driving example as it sits, but the patina on the paint just lets your mind start thinking about all the cool things this one can become. So no matter if this one evokes your nostalgia or your thoughts about a modern sleeper, there's a lot of fun to be had with a budget classic like this.

A car like this has room for everyone over two wide bench seats. Just like the exterior, even if you are planning for upgrades, you'll also be impressed by how complete it is. There are even nice original kinds of surprises, like the 50th-anniversary badge on the steering wheel and the working AM radio. It all makes this sedan quite endearing.

The engine bay has the same honest presentation as the rest of the car, and the clean look to this flathead V8's golden block is quite striking. This is even suspected to be the larger one offered in the trucks. What we can confirm is that it continues to have the robust nature you love in a flathead. The motor idles nicely, and the automatic transmission shifts cleanly. So you really understand this classic's cruising potential from day one.

This car is currently on a rebuilt title, and it just has the right kind of style where you're going to take some time to build your right car. This is a fun first restoration, a great way to turn back the clock, or the patina machine that's ready for your rat rod project. So if you love an affordable project, then this Ford has already got your mind racing. Call now!
