Popularly seen in the gangster films of the Fifties, the 1949 Ford range encompassed many variants, including two-door (Tudor) and four-door (Fordor) sedans, as well as a coupe (Club Coupe), hardtop, business coupe, station wagon, and even a coupe utility or pick-up. Ford went all-out with its full-size offering and assembled it in over ten plants across the USA alone. No surprise that many of these Fords became great restoration platforms, such as the case with this 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe Coupe. It's as original as possible with a few tasteful enhancements, has undergone a full restoration, and is a numbers-matching car. Bearing 136,000 miles, it's led a fulfilling life but is far from done. Its next lucky owner will be treated to an American icon from the 50's.
This 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe Coupe looks stunning with its new red paint, new Coker whitewall tires, wire wheels, and chrome side plates, all giving it that Fifties Ford stance. We are told that the paint job is a custom affair, as evidenced by some dainty gold detailing on the hood. You'll find twin chromed tailpipes at the rear, adding to the car's allure and character. We are told that the car sports new headlights. Inside, you'll find a red and white-trimmed cabin with seating for two occupants on low-back seats. There's reportedly a retro-styled AM radio player that's also got AUX connectivity, and we spot some auxiliary gauges right beneath it in the center stack. There also appears to be a small screen installed, possibly for a back-up camera, and the passenger footwell hosts a very period fan.
This 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe Coupe is powered by a 239ci Flathead V8 that drives the rear wheels via an upgraded T10 four-speed manual transmission. The current owner tells us that the car has received new brakes and has a 12-volt battery system. Further inspection of the engine bay reveals what appears to be a newer Henkyo carburetor, replaced yellow plug wires, and a new radiator cap.
