This 1953 Ford Customline Tudor Sedan has that true classic cruiser
look. Not only do you get a classy two-tone, but also all the right
pieces you love from the era: from flathead V8 power up front, to
continental kit on the rear. So dig into the details on a car that
understands how to put your nostalgia into overdrive.
Ford had a great-looking style in '53. The well-proportioned sheet
metal was given serious flair with all the added brightwork. The
revised grille was so wide that it reached around the corners just
like the bright bumper below it. 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 jet age. The trim tag tells us this is wearing its
factory-correct Sandpiper Tan main color, but now the roof paint
has some added flair with an upgraded metallic brown. It makes for
the right mix of classic style with some added cruiser fun. The
same goes for the bright dual exhaust tips and continental kit.
The tan and brown theme is carried inside for a thoughtful color
theme. It looks good on the plush wool carpeting, smooth dash, and
style two-tone upholstery. It's a very vintage atmosphere with
terrific details, like the working cabin lights on the B-pillar and
the fully finished trunk with the instructions still affixed to the
inner panel. And Ford fans will really love to see the steering
wheel with the special Family crest in the center that commemorates
the Ford Motor Company's 50th anniversary in 1953.
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. So just like the exterior, they added a touch of
tasteful flair with the bright polish on the motor's most unique
pieces like 90-degree coolant pipes and all those head bolts. This
is a well-maintained package that fires up readily. There's a
little V8 bark from the dual exhaust that's just enough to make you
fall in love with the Flathead all over again. And features like
the automatic transmission and modern tires make it an easier
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
Ford. Call today!!!
