Ford Custom Coupe 500 V8 1949

Allmän beskrivning : Description
If you love the look of the legendary 1949 Ford Custom Coupe, then this is the one you've always been dreaming about building. It has the sleek lines you love, but now it has been upgraded to a big 500 cubic-inch V8. And this fresh build has the right details - from upgraded paint to an A/C interior - to make sure this custom is admired for more than just its power.
Ford's first post-war design is now a true legend, and the coupe version is one of the most desirable around. The long hood, rounded glass house, and long trunk give it a great profile. Plus, it has awesome details, like the bright chrome front end with a bullet-nose Ford V8 logo in the center. The Custom trim runs the length of the car while highlighting a hint of rear fender skirt built into the design. And the wraparound taillights look great as they give the rear fender a hint of tailfin. But that's all what Ford gave you from the factory, and you can really tell this one has something more. The dark green paint has a smooth look of a more modern application (remember there's less than 300 miles on the total build,) and it has a metallic element that looks great in the sunlight. Some trim was removed and the door handles were deleted to make sure this coupe also looks smoother.
Just like the outside, the interior keep the classic style while hinting at something extra. The exterior green returns on the door tops and dash, and now it's joined by a tasteful tan. Not only does the color combo look awesome, but also the seats, door panels, and carpeting all have a fresh look. And we love the feel of the suede-like headliner. The AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, 12-volt plug, and cold-blowing air conditioning are all cleanly installed upgrades that make this classic nice for modern driving. It's also much easier to get comfortable behind the wheel thanks to upgrades like the tilt steering column and a crisp Haneline gauge package.
Under the hood is the best upgrade of them all. While this was the era for Ford flathead power, the massive 500 cubic-inch Cadillac V8 was expertly installed to look like it belonged since day one. You'll love showing off this upgrade thanks to the polished components like the valve covers, air topper, compressor, and more. Plus, you'll also spot good supporting pieces, like the aluminum radiator. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. GM's TH400 three-speed transmission is built for stout use and easy automatic shifting. And you have the right cruising features, like power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern treads on the classic whitewalls.
This is the custom Ford coupe that's made for both showing and enjoying. So don't miss this deal on such a fresh and cool build. Call today!!!

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.

Idag klassiska Fords är mycket populär bland entusiaster och ett stort urval av klassiska Fords finns till försäljning på www.ClassicDigest.com
