For Sale: 1950 Ford Business Coupe in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is pleased to offer this gorgeous maroon 1950 Ford Business Coupe Convertible, 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 Edelbrock high-compression heads, an Edelbrock aluminum intake sporting a Holley car set up, dual exhaust and the addition of an electric fan to help with the summertime heat! Coupled to the 3-speed manual transmission (with O.D.), this maroon over maroon & black vinyl beauty is ready to drop the nicely canvased top and roll!
