1949-1951 Shoebox Ford. When Ford introduced its new model for 1949, the car represented the Blue Oval's first clean-sheet design since World War II. ... Everything about the 1949 Ford was new, except for the wheelbase and the powertrain.

The 1949 models debuted at a gala at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City in June 1948, with a carousel of the new Fords complemented by a revolving demonstration of the new chassis. The new integrated steel structure was advertised as a "lifeguard body", and even the woody wagon was steel at heart. The convertible frame had an "X member" for structural rigidity.

From a customer's perspective, the old Custom, De Luxe, and Super De Luxe lines were replaced by new Standard and Custom trims and the cars gained a modern look with completely integrated rear fenders and just a hint of a fender in front. The new styling approach was also evident in the 1949 Mercury Eight and the all-new Lincoln Cosmopolitan. The styling was influential on many European manufacturers, such as Mercedes Benz, Borgward, Austin, Volvo and many others.

This car is nothings short of superb. Panel fit, paint, interior and running gear are all sound and nice. The flathead V-8 runs well and propels the car to highway speeds with ease. An exceptional value for a very nice dependable entry level collector car with room for the whole family. Cost to restore to the condition is far more than the low, low starting price. Parts and resources are plentiful, enthusiasts abroad.

A great piece of history to enjoy and use.
