Ford Custom Deluxe 226 CI I6 1950

Allgemeine Beschreibung : Description
Credited as the car that saved Ford, the post-war "shoebox" models were one of the first truly modern cars. With integrated styling and a rounded, aerodynamic look, they remain popular with collectors and customizers alike. Take this 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe as a prime example. With a killer old school look that features a little custom paint work, an efficient flathead six motor, and a very competitive price, this shoebox represents an inexpensive way to get into the classic car hobby in style.
This 1950 Custom Deluxe tudor is what you got when you walked into your Ford dealer looking for either the most basic transportation available, or the hottest car on the road, or both. The tudor sedan was externally identical to a four-door sedan, except there were no rear doors, although you can clearly see where they would have been. The 2-door "post" body style was inexpensive and durable, so it was a favorite of hot-rodders and always looks great in light colors. The driver-quality light blue paint on this '50 looks period appropriate and gives the car an upscale look that's extremely appealing, and we've always liked the way chrome trim pops against light pastel paint like this. Old-school pinstriping on the hood and deck lid give the car a custom feel, while the hood visor is a classic accessory not seen very often these days, but we really like the look. Sheetmetal is in overall decent shape with no evidence of previous damage, and there's a genuine honesty to a bone-stock old Ford with no liberties taken with its design. Even all the chrome is intact and shines up fairly well, providing a little bling up against the light blue finish. Accessory fender skirts make it look longer and lower, but aside from the pinstripes and the chrome exhaust tip poking out from under the rear bumper, it looks very much the way it would have in 1950.
The interior remains largely stock inside, with basic accommodations featuring bench seats and an original dash that's been painted and adorned with similar pinstriping found on the exterior. The black vinyl and cloth upholstery is very likely what it would have used originally, although the front seat does have a different cover than the rear, and it definitely shows its age. Plain door panels were created to tie it together and the carpets on the floors keep things civilized and help insulate the cab from heat and road noise. Instrumentation is simple, with a big speedometer with the auxiliary gauges around its perimeter, and all the factory switches and toggles are underneath. The big steering wheel is likely the original piece still in place, and it's installed atop an original column with a 3-on-the-tree shifter that manages the transmission below. Other than a factory AM radio that is no longer operational, options are sparse, although this Ford did come with a heater and a clock, all of which were still optional in 1950. Out back, the spacious trunk still carries a correct rubber mat as well as a bias-ply spare with jack assembly.
The real reason this car is so popular, however, is the efficient flathead straight 6 under the hood. Fans of the flathead claim that even the bad ones are good and the good ones are great, and the blacked-out 226 cubic inch unit here certainly lives up to the hype. It starts easily, idles almost silently, and makes all the right sounds when you romp on the throttle. Sure, the modern MSD coil and 12-volt alternator dominate the top side, but they do nothing to change the bubbly, enthusiastic nature of the Ford flathead. They took few other liberties with the mechanicals and it remains pretty much as intended right down to the single barrel carburetor. It's backed by a 3-speed manual transmission and well-spaced ratios, and is perfectly happy to cruise all day at 50 MPH. It tracks straight, rides smoothly thanks to relatively recent front suspension upgrades, and the purring exhaust with its chambered muffler gives it a fantastic '50s sound. Finishing the factory look, it wears 6.00-16 whitewall bias-plys that are wrapped around steelies adorned with beautiful bright chrome hubcaps.
