1949 Ford Deluxe
This car had a driver quality restoration completed in 2006 and is still a nice driver. I have over $15K in receipts from the start of restoration to date.3 owners since completed. Paint is a bit tired but still shines. All lights work except dome light. Electrics are still 6V positive ground and a 60 amp alternator has been added. The original radio has been converted to AM/FM stereo with an Ipod jack. Three on the tree with working overdrive. Dual exhaust with glasspacks. The Coker wide whites were just installed and have less than 100 miles.
The odometer shows 60,420 miles and there is a note that the car had 53,000 miles at the time of restoration. There is an oil change sticker in the door jamb from 1985 that shows 47,000 miles.Could be actual or the second time around.
The engine was rebuilt at the time of restoration at a cost of $2,800with either new or reconditioned parts except the block, cam and one head. Was bored .030 over.I've added Offenhauser heads/intake, Holley 390 cfm 4 barrel and a Mallory flat top dual point distributor. Starts right up hot or cold. An electric fuel pump has been installed in case of vaporlock.Heater core recently rebuilt.
The pans and trunk are in good shape with some rust but no cancer. The body panels are showing some bubbles over the rear wheel wells, front of hood and the lower front corners of both doors. Both rear windows have small cracks at the bottom rear corners. The king pins and outer control arm bushing could use replacement and NOS parts are included
I have a lot of parts that will go with the car and will list them when I get a chance it inventory. I've tried to describe the car as honestly as possible but feel free to ask questions. Ithas so many new parts I can't list them all. If you are local please inspect the car or have an inspection service take a look. I'm retired and available most of the time. Would also do a Facetime walk around.
Here is a partial list of parts that go with the car; NOS kingpins and outer control arm bushings/fender skirts/NOS RH quarter panel trim/LH police exhaust manifold/original service and parts manual/volt meter/NOS fog lamp kit complete/front window felts both doors/spare hood ornament/spare backup light set/spare headlight rings/car cover/misc small parts/ 2 framed Ford ads from '49.
