A cool cruising drop-top with all the right elements for a great
vintage presentation is an attractive proposition. So this 1950
Ford Custom convertible just seems to have the right mix of
original features balanced with subtle upgrades to make it
The color reminds us of Ford's 1950 Sheridan Blue, and since this
is an older respray with some touches of patina, you're going to
have some people just assume it's factory (and we won't tell your
secret.) It makes for the right look you want on a car that's a
true cruiser. And this one has more appeal than just putting wind
in your hair. These Fords are already one of the most attractive
post-war designs around. And when the trim is complete with the
bullet nose, full-length side trim, and wraparound bumpers, you
know you're looking at something special. It's true vintage fun
everywhere, from the classic Ford insignia to the two-piece wheel
trim with whitewalls.
The black roof has the same useful style as the exterior, and it
powers down to reveal the red and black two-tone interior. This one
feels exceptionally clean and authentic - everywhere, from the
working courtesy light to the button-top seatbacks. Even the AM
radio is still there for display. And you'll love grabbing the
stylized Ford steering wheel and looking out over the dash with the
large art deco speedometer.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks great under the hood, with the
bronze block continuing this drop-top's stock presentation. The
engine bay is nicely detailed, with the correct oil-bath air
cleaner matching the block. But this hardy motor also shows the
proper maintenance to ensure you have the kind of powerhouse that
upholds the flathead's reputation for robustness. The three-speed
manual transmission gives you firm control over the V8 and its
soundtrack. And details like newer tire rod ends, and a modern
tread behind the classic whitewalls make this feel solid while
This Ford is one of the most influential post-WWII car designs, and
this drop-top has all the right touches to be the one you'll love
to drive. So we suggest you hurry before someone else snatches it
up. Call now!
