The Ford Customline was a model by Ford that was built between 1952 and 1956. Body design stayed pretty similar with a few cosmetic changes between trim models. However the biggest change that would happen is that Ford would phase out the ever so desirable flathead V8 after 1953. After a twenty year run, the famous V8 would be replaced by an overhead valve V8 configuration. The Flathead would become one of the most famous engines of the twentieth century and still remains a favorite among hot rodders to this day. This absolute cream puff of a car has had very special attention to detail on all levels. The engine has had a engine out rebuild at the cost of over $15,000 alone. The suspension and brakes have all been gone through and the ride is fantastic. This thing is tight and true when driving , the sea-foam green is really nice as is the brightwork and trim. An electric fan has been added along with updated stereo system, fog lights, gauges etc….This is isn't your Grandpas Ford by any stretch. This car drives more like a modern car than a 70 year old vehicle. A electric fan has been added to the radiator for better cooling. I would say it would be hard to find another car like this for this price. Yes, there are nicer ones….for more money and there are cheaper ones…..that are not as nice, but I really truly believe this is one hell of a car for the money.
