Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is happy to be able to
offer this old-school cruiser, a 1950 Ford Club Coupe Custom, that
powered by Ford's iconic Flathead V/8. The Flathead engine was
originally intended to be used for big passenger cars and trucks &
it was installed in them (with minor, incremental changes) until
1953, making the Flathead engine's 21-year production run for the
U.S. consumer market longer than the 19-year run of the Ford Model
T! This engine was also on Ward's Automotive's list of the 10 top
engines of the 20th century. It was a staple of hot rodders all
across the U.S. in the 1950s, and it remains famous in the classic
car hobbies even today, despite the huge variety of other popular
V8s that followed. If your heads have the outlet in the front then
lucky you, because you most likely have an "8BA" flathead, which
ran from 1948-1953, & these engines where the last series in the
continental US to be made and are widely considered some of the
most desired Flathead's when it comes to stock performance and
engineering. This example is equipped with finned Offenhauser
high-compression heads, an Offenhauser aluminum intake sporting a
dual-carb set up, dual exhaust and the addition of an electric fan
to help with the summertime heat! Coupled to the 4-speed manual
transmission (with O.D.), this black beauty is ready for the cruise
night. The interior is done in a charcoal-colored vinyl with a
pinstriped velour seating areas that are nicely contrasted by the
cashmere looking camel door panels & head liner, giving it instant
eye appeal, and the red steel wheels with the chrome Ford "Moon
Pie" hubcaps & the wide Goodyear whitewalls complete this
old-school cruisers look!
