From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.


Classic Car Overview

This 1953 Ford Customline 2 Door Sedan (Stock # B11575) is available in our Benicia, CA showroom and any inquiries may be directed to us at 707-748-4000 or via email at Sales@SpecialtySales.com(mailto:Sales@SpecialtySales.com).

Meticulously Restored 1953 Ford Customline Sedan

New to our Benicia showroom is this beautiful 1953 Ford Customline 2 Door Sedan with yellow exterior paint and gorgeous grey Leather/cloth custom interior.  This stunning showpiece is like new throughout  after a complete restoration and you’ll be pleased to find a huge 460 cid V-8 engine bored .020 over with an Edelbrock intake, a Crane cam, custom headers, a Custom Mandrel Bent Flowmaster exhaust and a C6 automatic transmission.  This impressive classic is also equipped with Vintage Air, 4 wheel disc brakes, Borgeson power steering, 3 speed intermittent electric wipers, an amazing sound system, and far too much more to list.

Virtually every component on this spectacular ’53 Ford is brand new from bumper to bumper with a mere 3,539 total miles on the entire build.

Driven 3,539 Miles Since Complete Frame-Off Restoration

The current owner of this 1953 Ford Customline Sedan acquired it back in 2011 and he informs us that it’s a local Bay Area classic that originally sold in Burlingame, California.  This classic was literally stripped down to bare metal in a multi-year frame off restoration effort and restored from the ground up with the best components that money can buy.  For instance, the entire suspension has been upgraded with HD stabilizer bars, Strange axels and KBY gas shocks while the entire drivetrain features brand new parts and accessories.  This example is truly stunning in person with only 3,539 miles on the entire build.

Additionally, this 1953 Ford Customline Sedan performs like a true muscle car with blistering acceleration, very nice handling, solid stopping power and simply an incredible feel on the open road.  While this example was clearly restored to take center stage at local events and meetups, it can be driven guilt-free around town or on a cross-country vacation.  This description and the photographs do not do this outstanding classic the complete justice it deserves- it has to be seen in person to truly appreciate since the current owner went above and beyond during the restoration process.

Outstanding Overall Condition Both Inside & Out

Overall, this 1953 Ford Customline 2 Door Sedan is one of the most impressive examples we’ve seen this year and it’s being sacrificed for a mere fraction of the total build costs.  If you’re searching for a real head-turner with incredible performance and undeniable curb appeal, come see this amazing classic today!  For more information about this vehicle, visit our Benicia, California showroom, give us a call at 707-748-4000, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com(mailto:Sales@SpecialtySales.com).  Be sure to mention Stock # B11575 as well.
