1950 Ford Custom Chop Top Convertible
1950 FORD CONVERTIBLE 289 V8 â€“
CUSTOM CHOP TOP CELEBRITY OWNED VIN: H00L144510
Iâ€™m selling my very special 1950 Ford Convertible Custom Chop Top 289 V8. This 1950 Ford was built in Texas by famed Customizer Texas Custom Coachworks for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Once they divorced, many of their marital assets were put up for sale, including this great car.
It is in excellent running condition. They had spared no expense on the mechanical restoration, and had just started getting to the cosmetics when I purchased it. For the past year I have driven it around town and stored it with the upmost of care in my climate controlled auto warehouse, alongside some of the most exotic cars in the world.
Part of the customizations on this custom chop top include:
1. Crate Small Block Ford 289 V8 â€“
2. Updated Alternator and GM HEI Ignition
3. 600 Holly
4. Replaced All Wiring with the Correct Cloth Covered
5. Automatic with Overdrive
6. Sports Headers with Side Pipe Exhaust
7. 1954 Chevy Grill with Extra Teeth
8. Frenched Tail Lights and Head Lights
9. Chop Top Windshield
10. Original 1950 Ford Steering Wheel & Dash
11. Oil Change (Full Synthetic)
This 289 V8 has plenty of pep, giving this rare light weight classic a ton of get up and go. This classic chop drives great and looks great. The 289 pulls strong and is still the beast it was when it was winning street races back in the 50â€™s. This is a strong solid car.
Cosmetically, the paint, chrome and body looks great, but Iâ€™d call this a 5 foot car. From 5 feet away the car looks perfect, as you get closer you can see certain imperfections. If I were keeping the car Iâ€™d get started having the body reworked and repainted. I think that was Pitt and Jolieâ€™s original plan, but they like I never got to it, because I get compliments everywhere I go. There arenâ€™t many blemishes to speak of.
There really isnâ€™t anything wrong with the car to mention. Iâ€™d honestly call this car a 9.5 out of 10 mechanically (with the occasional expected slight oil leaks) and a 6 out of 10 cosmetically. Itâ€™s a new year and Iâ€™m clearing out some old toys to make room for some new ones.
Cars of this age typically donâ€™t have titles, they simply come with a bill of sale and are difficult to title and register.
I HAVE A LEIN FREE, CLEAR TX TITLE, AND BILL OF SALE!
The mileage on the odometer reads 49,363, but I donâ€™t know if it is correct as the title says that the mileage is exempt do to the vehicleâ€™s age.
As I stated, I am not a dealer. Iâ€™m an avid auto collector (as you can see from some of the pictures), that includes some of my other cars.
Please ask all questions before bidding. This is a terrific once in a lifetime chance to own a great running celebrity owned piece of automotive history. I will not deal with the scam artists out there. Wire transfers or cash in person ONLY. If you are not prepared to do this, please do not bid. You will not be disappointed in this car.
I will help coordinate shipping, but the cost will be the sole responsibility of the buyer. I will also include all of my receipts and notes and extra parts and tools that I have in the sale. I want her to have a good home and to be taken care of.
Thanks for looking and good luck.
