Get in the way-back machine and drive this very nice post-war Ford. Honestly, this car is way outside our normal offerings. This was never considered to be a sporty car. It was a good, honest family car and Ford sold almost of 400,000 of this configuration in 1950. Why do we offer it? Sometimes a car just hits the right buttons. This 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe Sedan came to us with huge potential. It looked fantastic but had been sitting... for awhile. Brakes were weak, and engine starting was difficult. We went through the car and brought it back to life. Now it is a pleasure to drive. Everything works and runs very well. No fuss or drama. The 100hp 239 V8 flat head fires right up with just a little choke until it warms up. The engine is quiet, the drive-line is smooth and the three-on-the-tree transmission with overdrive is slick. Just remember 1st gear is non-synchronized so bring it to a stop before shifting down to low! This car has has been preserved well with a just a few bits refreshed (see below), so it still feels nicely original (still has the plastic covering on the cloth seats!). It's a fun and satisfying driver that is good for Sunday drives or car shows. It's a perfect size to fit in modern garages and modern parking spaces. Not too heavy either, so it steers easily even at low speeds. If you've ever been in the market for a classic car that you can get in and drive, but not spend a fortune restoring, this may be your car!
