For Sale: 1950 Ford Custom in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1950 Ford Custom Coupe loves to live up to the "Custom" part of its name. Sure, it looks like a pure vintage post-war design, but beneath the skin are upgrades to the V8 and suspension. And when you add in features like an overdrive transmission and ice-cold air conditioning, this becomes the car you'll enjoy driving for longer and further than the average classic.

The long hood and longer trunk silhouette of Ford's coupe body is one of the most attractive going, and we like its presentation in a classic maroon. The overall theme of this car is about being a classic that you'll really enjoy driving. So the finish does a terrific job of highlighting the well-fitting panels and classic curves. But it's also not overly done so you'll get nervous about hitting the road on a whim. You'll see that the full package looks good, and that's thanks to details like the shining bumpers, Custom trim sweeping down the sides, and 1950s hallmark bullet-nose grille. You'll see all the best custom cruiser details, like the dual spotlights, half-chrome headlights, rear fender skirts, and wide exhaust tips with Ford logos. And we like how this still keeps the two-piece wheel trim, but it's now an updated package that lets you fit better cruising tires.

The interior continues the feeling of a true classic with the right cruiser upgrades. The maroon returns inside on the door tops, carpeting, and dash, and now it's joined by gray cloth on the door panels and classic bench seats. Even the trunk is done to coordinate. The steel dash has the right vintage feel, including the classic large speedometer centered on the driver. But it doesn't take much to see how this one wants you to feel extra comfy. After all, Ford never gave you a nicely trimmed sports steering wheel or a tilt column. The AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and ice-cold air conditioning makes this classic start to feel like a daily driving kind of comfortable.

Under the hood, this Ford has been updated to Chevy small block power. That's a nice change when looking to have a simple and robust reputation like the Flathead V8 but with the ability to deliver more power. This 327 cubic-inch unit even has a four-barrel carburetor and double-hump heads. And because this was made to be a true cruiser, there are some pretty desirable upgrades beyond just the motor. You have an upgraded Mustang II-style independent front end, rack & pinion power steering, power brakes with front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive.

This classic ford has the right investments to be a surprisingly sharp and comfortable driver. So when you want to start thinking about weekend road trips in your classic, this is the one that needs to be in your garage. Call today!!!
