This 1958 Ford Custom two-door sedan has the style of a street
machine, and that was done on purpose. After all, when you have
Ford's legendary 406 cubic-inch V8 that also has triple-deuce carbs
and the control of four-on-the-floor, you want to make sure you
have the attitude to go with your power.
The '58 Ford is an ideal car to turn into a power car. It already
had a muscle car kind of style straight from the factory with the
hood scoop, outstretched tail lights, and the wide and intimidating
front end. And this one also knows how to take it up a notch. The
black and metallic gray color combo has a mean look. Plus, there
are upgrades like the polished dual exhaust tips and larger 17-inch
REV wheels. But even within the upgrades, there's also a nice sense
of style. That's why the two-tone utilizes the classic side trim as
a border, and the finish went on with care to give the whole car a
premium gloss. And the way the whole car fits together means it's
going to get respectful nods for more than just its big power
The interior continues the feeling of vintage and upgraded. You
have two wide bench seats done in a comfy velour. They are
preserved by vinyl covers, but you can feel the plushness of the
upholstery on the door panels. It's a very dark and very clean
overall style that makes for an attractive classic. And you'll
appreciate details everywhere from the Ford family crest in the
classic steering wheel to provisions for R134a air conditioning (it
will need servicing to blow cold again.) And everything from the
SunPro auxiliary readouts to the Hurst floor shifter gets you ready
for something special in the engine bay.
The forward-tilt hood gives you a nice full view of the monster
motor. The polished valve covers and long air grabber announce you
have a serious V8 heart. While a 406 cubic-inch motor is usually
enough for most of us, this one goes much further. It has an
upgraded intake holding a triple set of Holley dual-barrel
carburetors on top. It's a strong triple-deuce motor that loves to
make a powerful sound out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. And the
four-speed manual transmission means you're in firm control of it
all. It's a car that likes you to feel the road, but it's also
built to be a true driver. So the ride feels confident and comfy.
Plus, the upgraded wheels also mean you get to fit modern sports
tires that offer better grip.
This is the kind of car that would rule the boulevard in 1958, and
today its sleek and speedy style makes it a stand-out in any crowd.
So if you love a cool classic, you know you can't let this one slip
away. Call today!!!
