A true original showing only 42,000 miles 1953 marked the 50th anniversary of Ford! The Customline became Ford motors mid-market entry, and it featured a more modern style. Wraparound windshield, curved rear glass, a modified grille, and more ornamentation to break up the earlier "shoebox" Ford's slab sides gave the Customline a fresh look. This car has the optional 239-cid l-head engine using a two-barrel carburetor, with this choice lending 110 hp to the driver. A three-speed manual transmission was standard. The base price for a Customline in 1952 was in the neighborhood of $1,700. Features include: am push button radio heater/defroster clock directional signals foot operated windshield washer looking at the finish, black paint looks original, with the right patina, a few areas show primer from being waxed too many times, gorgeous original chrome and appears to have original interior with clear plastic slip covers over the front and rear seats. Super nice original dash gauges that work as they did in 1953 along with working clock and good sounding am push button radio.
