1950 Ford Club Coupe --

In the aftermath of World War II, the country's economy was beginning to gather steam, people were moving from the cities to the suburbs and cars like this 1950 Ford Club Coupe were getting America's workforce to their jobs in style. A timeless appearance combines with well-chosen modifications inside, outside and beneath the hood to make this a standout ride. The refined exterior this Coupe rolled off the assembly line with was already stare-worthy to begin... with - during the War, there wasn't much advancement on the automotive design front, so it's as if all the pent-up inspiration threatening to burst out of Ford's design department was put into play during the years immediately following. Compare the smooth appearance of this '50 with its counterparts of just a half-decade before and the differences are startling, with the formerly protruding fenders and hood giving way to a more integrated overall appearance. There's some great customization work on display here and it really makes an impact - the shaved door handles allow the well-fitted exterior and distinctive paint to take center stage, while the bumper-deleted rear end with the chrome tailpipes peeking out below creates a one of a kind appearance. The Twilight Blue metallic color draped over the exterior is in good shape, still in full possession of a sleek shine and its accenting chrome presents nicely as well. Take a look inside and you'll notice right away that a lot of work went into transforming the interior, resulting in a collection of modern conveniences taking their place alongside a customized foundation. The two tone blue and cream buckets at its center are not only very comfortable and still in great shape, but they also offer power adjustability to attain just the right driving position and they tie in perfectly with the door panels to each side. Farther forward, there's even more to like, with a chrome 3-spoke steering wheel mounted on the column and a clean dash area just beyond it that features the model's unique single display instrument panel, which pairs with a trio of aftermarket ProSource gauges just below the vents for aftermarket air conditioning that's in top form - this system cools the cabin in no time. In back, the trunk area is nicely finished, with color matched fabric covering the inner walls and floor and a space-saving spare on hand inside. Mechanically speaking, the theme of this classic is all about dependable power and functionality to navigate modern day driving with ease. A 283 cubic inch V8 now occupies the orderly and well maintained engine compartment, dressed in a host of chrome components that include its serpentine belt system, air cleaner and valve covers and surrounded by fresh hoses and properly routed wiring. It's fed by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb perched on an aftermarket intake manifold that provides far more dependability and efficiency than its original counterpart, as does the smooth shifting 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission now in place behind the engine. The added Mustang II front end carries a load of benefits to refine the driving experience of this appealing classic, including power rack and pinion steering, front coilovers and front disc brakes to provide all the stopping power you'll need during common driving situations as this tastefully modified vintage Ford turns heads on its set of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels - 15" in front and 17" in back. With its unique combination of evocative vintage appeal and modern appointments, this 1950 Ford Club Coupe would be the perfect match for the classic car enthusiast who puts a high premium on drivability.
