For Sale: 1958 Ford Custom in Fairmont City, Illinois

$18,995

Vehicle Description

For sale in our Orlando showroom is a 1958 Ford Custom 300. While it is easy to like this car based on appearance alone, the real treat lies under the tilt-forward hood. Since there’s no replacement for displacement, you’ve got a monstrous 383 stroker that started off as a Ford 351 at your disposal, cranking out more than enough power to get you off the line in a hurry! To keep things cool, there’s an aluminum radiator with twin fans, so whether you’re cruising out on the highway, or moving slower at your local classic car show, you can enjoy the experience without overheating. You slam through the gears yourself, with a 4-speed manual with a Hurst shifter topped with a lucky number 7 pool ball, and the power hits the ground to a rebuilt stock rear end with 3.01 gears. On the inside, you sit on a comfortable cloth split-bench seat, and monitor engine functions with the gauges set in a wild-looking dash, reminiscent of the days when auto manufacturers weren’t afraid to take chances with bold new designs. With approximately 500 miles on the rebuilt drivetrain, other recent mechanical work includes new brakes, exhaust, and tires, so this Ford will be reliable during weekend car shows, or your daily commute, so all you have to do is throw it in gear, smash the gas pedal, and let the rumble from the dual exhaust turn some heads! The stock exterior gives it a rather unassuming appearance, showing no outward signs that when the pedal hits the floor, this car can easily throw you back in the seat. With the 50’s design cues on the exterior, including quad taillights and wild fins, the losers of stoplight drag races will at least have a great view while you leave them in your dust! Options include: AM radio, hub caps, and a cloth interior. If you want to own the road in a budget hot rod, then look no further! Located in our Orlando showroom, this 1958 Ford 300 can be seen in greater detail, including HD photos and video, at www.GatewayClassicCars.com, or call 407-771-2000 for more information. http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/orlando/1958/ford/custom-S645.html
