1949 Ford Other Business Coupe

WWII Tribute this 1949 Ford has the original low miles flathead and 3 speed manual transmission. Car did not come with backseat, rare business coupe, backseat and seat belts were added. Rare translucent pearl white steering wheel mooneyies tachometer. Original car that has been lowered with blocks and springs and "twice Pipes" or the lake pipes are working to give this flathead a very cool sound. 4 pipes, 2 out the side and two out the back. Laser straight with some wear on the 10 year old paint job. Glass is clean bright, chrome is bright with some road scares but no major dents. Trunk and floor pan has no rust and was originally cleaned and sealed with POR-15 inside the car and out. Wheels are powder coated black and the Beautiful Wide White Walls have 90% tread left. Brakes are great as is the way it drives. Really smooth running car and when it idols you can not tell it is running. Very quiet at idol. Shifts smooth and is very quick. The engine bay has been customized by devillecustoms.com and is one of a kind creation dedicated to the WWII era. This was done as if it was 1953 and a returning WWII returning serviceman paid tribute to his past. A P40 flies by as it shot down two enemy zeros, the linkage has a Switchblade with gave this car its nickname. A working vent made from a real cocktail shaker with pin up trims out the Sailor Jerry theme and the battery bock is a ammo can.

Motor was gone through and the cooling system was redone with a rebuilt radiator. Converted to 12volts and Needs nothing.. Very good running custom ready to go…. Big Head turner, low and super clean. Interior is free from defects and is finished in grey cloth/vinyl the headliner is clean and smooth vinyl that matches the seats…
