This 1949 Ford Custom Coupe loves to live up to the "Custom" part
of its name. This means you have a well-coordinated color combo, a
leather-lined comfy interior, a Bluetooth stereo, air conditioning,
fuel-injected V8 power, and more. It makes for a sleek classic
coupe with true cruiser appeal.
The long hood and long 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
shaved door handles, polished dual exhaust tips, and American
Racing Torq Thrust wheels. Plus, there's custom pinstriping front
and rear, including a graphic reminding you that 1949 was the debut
year of the now-iconic "shoebox" Ford design.
The sea of maroon continues inside. While the full style is quite
attractive, what you really notice is how it's all nicely upgraded
to make it far more comfortable that a post-war coupe. After all,
They weren't giving you front bucket seats in 1949. This upgrade is
plush yet supportive, and it's finished in supple leather. A custom
center console, cup holders, R134a air conditioning, and an AM/FM
stereo with Bluetooth are all part of the extra comfy custom setup.
This one also loves to be a better driver. That's why you have
upgrades like a sports steering wheel, a tilt column, white-faced
gauges, and an EFI touchscreen on the center console.
The sleek inner walls, polished components, and overall tidy style
of the engine bay make for a terrific way to showcase an upgraded
powerhouse. While the iconic bullet-nose promotes the V8 power,
this one now has been updated from flathead power to Ford's hardy
351 cubic-inch Windsor motor. You'll spot plenty of the right
upgrades, like an Offenhauser intake, upgraded pulleys, a
serpentine belt, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. And
your favorite addition will likely be the modern Holley Sniper
electronic fuel injection system that delivers the best in power
and consistency. It makes for a pleasant cruising powerhouse. And
the full easy driving attitude continues with good features like a
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
and front discs.
This classic ford has the right investments to be a surprisingly
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!!!
