This Ford has just come out of a 2.5 year restoration.
This is a 6 cylinder version of the '49 Shoebox Ford.
This vehicle has been restored to "like new" condition.
This Ford was in pretty good shape before the restoration began.
The engine has been professionally restored and painted,
The body work was completed over a 2 year span of time
and is almost flawless in my opinion.
After a few body patches were welded in
along with a few dents fixed, the primer was applied
and sanded to a smooth finish
then 3 coats of paint were applied,
followed by one coat of clear.
The paint was then buffed out,
but more buffing is needed to get the paint to be more glossy.
The upholstery (including seats, headliner, door panels,
and rubber floor mat) is completely brand new
and to original specifications.
All new brake lines have been installed,
along with a new master cylinder.
A new exhaust system has also been installed.
An entire new wiring system has been installed
which includes all of the wires behind the dash.
All electricals work at this time except for the clock.
Original wheels and brand new thin whitewall tires.
The bumpers are original and have been re-chromed
and look beautiful.
The rest of the chrome is original as well
but has been polished to look as good as it can,
but has not been re-chromed.
Some of the chrome is really good, and
some of the chrome pieces have spots that are not perfect
that would warrant re-chroming the piece.
NOS outside door handles, trunk hinges,
and trunk handle have been purchased at Jefferson Wisconsin swap meet
and put on the car as the original equipment was pitted.
Chrome on these pieces looks fantastic.
The dash, steering column, and inside of door have not been repainted
and remain in their original gray color.
Dash has one knob that is not original.
There is some fading of the gray paint on the inside
of the door where your arm would rest if you
were riding/driving in the car.
One tiny "ding" on the inside of the passenger side door,
beneath the window, as well.
Glass is all good.
The trunk has been left pretty much as original.
Would need a rubber mat to complete.
The car starts right up and drives great,
but we have only put about 5 miles on the car since
the restoration was completed,
as the weather turned bad here,
so there has been no shake-down mileage put on this car yet.
I believe the original miles were around 35,000.
I believe that I have described the vehicle
to the best of my ability.
If you need more pictures on anything let me know.
I do not have access to a car lift,
but the underneath of the car looks as good as the rest of the car.
I kept all of my receipts,
I am well over $15K into it and I realize that
I am going to lose money on this project,
but I have too many projects currently and
this has got to go as it is costing me money
just sitting in a storage facility.
This was a project for my Dad to work on and
to get him off of the Lazy Boy, but things changed
when the car was finished, and
we are no longer in a position to keep the car.
The PRICE is lower than you might expect on this car
compared to the other '49 Fords that have been advertised here
during the past 6 months or so.
I will accept Cashiers Check, Money Order, Cash in Person,
but Not Paypal.
The car is currently in Eastern Iowa USA.
Title is clear, and is in my name.
