1953 Ford Other -- Additional Info:

This 1953 Ford Customline has been upgraded with a performance V8, great paint, updated suspension, and an A/C interior. So you can read on for all the details, but you already know this is a terrific street machine. This one absolutely lives up to the "custom" part of the Customline name. The Glacier Blue paint is a great 1950s-style color, but the gloss it radiates in the sunshine tells you this is a newer professional application. Plus, the emblems in... the front and rear as well as the door handles are all accented by custom navy and gray pinstriping. And items like the blue-dot headlights and Rocket alloy wheels are great indications of a full custom build. And we know exactly why someone spent the time and money making this one look so good. These Fords have an instant appeal with a bright front end that has both a wraparound bumper and grille. Plus, there's plenty of jet-inspired elements like the hood ornament, rear fender trim, and afterburner-style taillights. So this was already a highly stylized package before the custom investment. Inside is a great mix of vintage and new worlds. The gray cloth seat, coordinating door panels, and carpeting all look period-correct, but they have the fresh feeling of a recent investment. And the classic dual-spoke steering wheel with Ford family crest is a great vintage element. But beyond that is a tilt steering column and a full set of Dolphin gauges. Plus, you get great pieces that people never heard of in the '50s, like cup holders and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. And to keep you feeling as cool as you look in this Ford, there's also modern R134a air conditioning. It's nice to see a Ford get upgraded in the engine bay while still keeping the power in the blue oval family. In fact, its cobalt blue presentation will really draw a crowd. This is 302 cubic-inch roller motor that's been given plenty of nice features, including an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and headers that feed a rumbling dual exhaust. But more than just a great performance V8, take some time to look over this full build. You'll see a upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension and front disc brakes. Out on the road, the three-speed automatic transmission and power steering keep this classic comfortable. You even have an aluminum radiator with electric fans to keep the whole package cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. There's less than 6k miles on the whole build, and the build receipts will prove just how much work went into this very custom Ford Customline. So you know you can't delay on this well-priced classic, or else it might be gone. Call today!!!
