For Sale: 1953 Ford Custom in Crab Orchard, West Virginia


Vehicle Description

1953 Ford Victoria. Original top was replaced with a 54 Skyliner top and was chopped 3 inches. Front bumper and grille are 52 Mercury. Back glass also 52. Rear Quarters extended approx 14 inches with 57 Chrysler tail lights and 57 De Soto bumper narrowed to fit car. Continental kit molded to rear of car. Also other lesser body modifications. Dash is a customized 52 Ford dash. 302 engine and C-4 tranny. Both rebuilt about 3000 miles back. 8" Maverick rear end with 3.00 gears. Seats and steering wheel are Chrysler New Yorker. Power steering, power brakes, tilt, cruise, power seats, A/C. Hood and trunk have been shaved. Front wheel opening molding has been added. Metal bubble skirts were extended to match quarters. 57 Cadillac hubcaps. This is an old school low rider. The vast majority of parts are OEM from many different brands and years. Very little "Store Bought Stuff". The question I hear the most at shows, WHAT IS IT?

I have owned this car for more than 45 years. I customized it about 25 years ago. I did it for myself to drive and enjoy. It wasn't done just to make a buck. It has surely served the purpose
over the years. The last few years I have lost interest in car shows and driving it. I just feel it is time to let someone else take it from here.
