1949 Ford Club Coupe Custom Description


1949 Custom Club Coupe. Straight and solid body with incredible patina. Everything mechanical has been rebuilt, repaired, or replaced. Hopped up flathead, T-5 trans, and 8” Ford rear. Built to drive, I’ve done several multi-state road trips in this car. Flathead handles city traffic without overheating. Body exterior is untouched, except for replaced rockers. Inside, the front floors, toeboards and body mounts have been replaced. Built as a no-frills old school hot rod, the interior is bare bones and wears a patina like the exterior. Clean Illinois title.

Excellent base to build from if you want to make it all shiny, or keep it as is and have a one of a kind Shoebox.
