This 1949 Ford Custom Convertible gets the true classic cruiser
feeling right. Not only is it a rare drop-top, but it has all the
best vintage details, like an awesome color combo, bright chrome, a
continental kit, and flathead V8 power. So it's amazing that
something so desirable can also be so affordable.
We love the '49 Ford because it's the first significant post-WWII
car design. And what better way to celebrate the car that got
Detroit humming again than with an all-American color theme?
There's glossy red paint that loves to radiate off of the
sunshine-friendly convertible. And the white convertible top not
only looks good against the whitewalls, but it also gives the
overall appearance the same appeal as a Coca-Cola bottle. Like any
good classic of this era, there's plenty of chrome on the bumpers
and the highly stylized grille. In the middle of that bullet nose
there's an "8" just so everyone knew back then that you were
piloting the big motor. The full-length trim shows off the
well-fitting doors, and in the rear, there's even the addition of a
continental kit for true distinction. And as you look at all the
details - from the special hood ornament to the driver's spotlight
- you just know someone took the time to get this convertible
Because the white top looks so good against the red exterior,
you'll be happy to take it down to show off the bright white
upholstery, too. This has quite an attractive style with updated
door panels and button-top seating. It's thoughtfully detailed with
a matching white convertible boot and black carpeting so you can
invite friends for a ride without worrying about dusty shoes. There
are a few items to restore if you need perfection, like the AM
radio or speedometer, but it's also nice just to have all the
vintage pieces on display. And you'll love taking control of this
drop-top when you grip the classic stylized Ford steering
The period-correct presentation continues under the hood where the
239 cubic-inch flathead V8 is showcased in a bright bronze. The
engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner
matching the exterior. And the radiator hoses are so crisp, they
look like they are diving into the motor. The glasspack-style dual
exhaust gives this famous V8 a little extra bass during your Sunday
drives. And the three-speed manual transmission lets you control
that soundtrack while also giving it a powerful feeling around town
if you so desire.
This is the classic that you'll love to drive and love to show off.
Since you're not the only one who recognizes a value price on a
great drop-top, you might want to hurry up and grab this '49 Ford
before someone else does. Call today!!!
