Classic Car Overview

Offered for consignment and your viewing pleasure, a 1952 Ford Customline Club Coupe. Frame on restored, an always rust free body, plenty of chrome trimmings this car has nice overall paint showing a car that has had a good life, and has been well kept with its overhauled drivetrain. Isnt it time you took a look at the ablest car on Americas roads? Exterior Deep dark black covers the straight steel panels of this car that have well minded gaps, and the finish presents as deep end of the pool with only minor inclusions and a small area of bubbling. From its neatly designed big 1950s front grille with some outboard jet-like signal lights to the big side trim spear that starts at the headlights and goes to the back of the door, this literally looks like youre looking skyward at the underside of a flying jet complete with chrome contrail. Plenty of chrome trimmings for the window surrounds, rocker trim and faux vent scoop leading the way on the rear quarters which do a wonderful job highlighting the body bump out and fender skirts over the rear wheels. Moving to the back, a single round tail light with a chrome bezel and small chromed center rests on the end of the fender which has rounded tops to meet the taillights. Breaking up the sea of black on the rear is another chrome bumper with a huge bumper/trunk guard that partially blocks the round reverse lights. Jet black steel wheels with F badged chrome caps are wrapped in wide white bias ply tires on all 4 corners to complete the look. Interior The door panels utilize a myriad of materials from smooth ivory vinyl to gray stitched broadcloth and even some gray painted metal, which all work together to form the door panels. Wide long benches are the passengers seating front and rear, and these are covered with gray checked broadcloth with darker gray uppers. We note the front bench is of the split back variety and the seats both front and rear remain like new. A warm light gray metal dash, and original instrumentation are seen inside. The horseshoe speedometer and gauge cluster are in front of the original steering wheel in black. Chrome trimmed radio and temp controls are noted on this dash and a centrally located clock in a small circular bump up is in the top dead center of this dash. The gray cloth headliner and sun visors are above, meanwhile clean black carpeting floods the floors floating the interior. Drivetrain Powered by the 239ci flathead V8 and 3-speed Ford-O-Matic column mounted shifter provides 110hp, both of which were overhauled during the redux. There is a 2-barrel carburetor atop, and a 3-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission on back with a 3.31 geared rear axle at the tail end. The overall condition of the engine bay can best be described as restored with the bright red block setting off the glossy black bay nicely. Undercarriage Riddled with patina, some slight surface rust appears on the frame and suspension with all remaining structurally solid. This holds true for the undercoated floor pans and inner rockers. Independent coil spring suspension for the front and leaf springs for the rear, and drum brakes on all 4 corners give you the ride and the whoah. Meanwhile, cast iron headers work together with dual glasspack style exhaust to let the crowd know you have arrived. Drive-Ability Following our consignors instructions, we allowed the car to warm up before our drive and we were rewarded with smooth acceleration and the transmission shifted almost un-noticeably. An apt handler through the corners of our fabled test track, but during braking we noted a pull to the right. All functions were operational at the time of our drive save for the wipers, while starting to work, reached the peak of their wiping arc and stopped. A great opportunity to own a truly great 50s classic frame on restored at one point. A great look for the exterior, interior looking good and using many materials. Original engine, a clean engine bay, and a nice aging look which does not have any more need to be redone.
