Beautifully restored. All stock. This is one fine automobile. It's
my favorite one right now. It's not "show", but it sure looks good.
Driving it at 65 to 70 is a breeze. Total frame off restoration.
Flathead V-8 with 3 speed overdrive transmission. Drove it home 70
miles. Joe, at Old School Garage, did the service and safety check.
We installed new radial wide whites. New hub caps and beauty rings.
I'm not sure I want to sell it. It's been a long time since we have
had one. It had an aftermarket radio and I bought a new AM/FM
look-alike and it sure looks good. I bought this car from an
estate. What little I know is that he bought it in Montana in 1974
from a man that started to restore it. He had it shipped home and
he started restoring it. I got old photos showing this with notes
on them and some had the dates on the back. The speedo shows 25,853
miles when I bought it. I don't believe that is the mileage since
restoration. I think it is less. The underside is extremely good. I
thought I would find rust and when we did the underside video and
really looked it over, the floorpans and the frame are beautiful.
We did find some pin holes on the left inside rocker and very
minor. I'm really impressed with how good this Ford is. We also
installed new carpets. The top frames have been restored and
painted. The top is tan and looks great. It was a power top
originally but it's manual now and works fine. ( watch the video )
It's a great car that you will be happy owning. 1950 Ford Custom
