239 Flathead V8
A cool cruising drop-top with all the right elements for a great vintage presentation is an attractive proposition. So this 1950 Ford Custom convertible just seems to have the right mix of original features balanced with subtle upgrades to make it irresistible.
The color reminds us of Ford\'s 1950 Sheridan Blue, and since this is an older respray with some touches of patina, you\'re going to have some people just assume it\'s factory (and we won\'t tell your secret.) It makes for the right look you want on a car that\'s a true cruiser. And this one has more appeal than just putting wind in your hair. These Fords are already one of the most attractive post-war designs around. And when the trim is complete with the bullet nose, full-length side trim, and wraparound bumpers, you know you\'re looking at something special. It\'s true vintage fun everywhere, from the classic Ford insignia to the two-piece wheel trim with whitewalls.
The black roof has the same useful style as the exterior, and it powers down to reveal the red and black two-tone interior. This one feels exceptionally clean and authentic -- everywhere, from the working courtesy light to the button-top seatbacks. Even the AM radio is still there for display. And you\'ll love grabbing the stylized Ford steering wheel and looking out over the dash with the large art deco speedometer.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 looks great under the hood, with the bronze block continuing this drop-top\'s stock presentation. The engine bay is nicely detailed, with the correct oil-bath air cleaner matching the block. But this hardy motor also shows the proper maintenance to ensure you have the kind of powerhouse that upholds the flathead\'s reputation for robustness. The three-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the V8 and its soundtrack. And details like newer tire rod ends, and a modern tread behind the classic whitewalls make this feel solid while staying vintage.
This Ford is one of the most influential post-WWII car designs, and this drop-top has all the right touches to be the one you\'ll love to drive. So we suggest you hurry before someone else snatches it up. Call now!
