Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this 1953 Ford Customline. This vehicle is equipped with an all original cloth interior, am radio, seatbelts, white wall tires, as well as being a numbers matching vehicle “per owner statement”.

The beginning of this line began in 1952, when the Ford Motor Company did a restructuring of their all new vehicle line that began in 1949. The Customline was the mid-level car, the peddles have now become suspended from below the dash. A voltmeter, gas gauge, temp gauge, and oil pressure were standard. The clock and radio were positioned in the center of the dash, and the grille now sported a single center Bullet flanked by vertical black stripes. The radio preset buttons were even preset to local stations by your local ford dealer as a special yet unusual service. This vehicle is equipped with the long lived and famous Ford Flathead V8 coming in at 239 CID or 3.9L. This vehicle has been well taken care of and started its life In Louisville, Kentucky where it rolled off the assembly line on September 3, 1952. This car was restored in 2011, where it received full engine and transmission rebuild. During the vehicles restoration it was noted that the panels did not need to be replaced or patched so underneath its gorgeous black paint are its original and untouched panels. The all original interior compliments the exterior and speaks highly to the care the vehicle has seen through out its life. This car is not only breath taking, it is also a pleasure to take our and cruise down the road to your local cruise in.

1955 Ford Thunderbird

1955 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 292 V8
Transmission: 3-speed Over-Drive
Mileage: 68,313 ( undocumented )

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This first year Thunderbird is painted in a rare Goldenrod Yellow with a white soft top, white hardtop with black and white two-toned interior. Power comes from a 292-cubic inch V8, the only available engine for 1955. This one is equipped with a manual 3 speed transmission and optional over drive. The over drive is a neat unit. Once in 3rd gear and you're ready, pull the T handle beneath the dash and you're in! Other equipment includes power seats, wide white wall radial tires and a white hardtop. To add some personal touches, the previous owner decided to paint the hard-top white as opposed to keeping it body color as the factory would have painted it. The soft top is also white which would have been black fabric from the factory. These personal touches give the car a unique look and help it stand out from other '55 Thunderbirds. This is easily reversible if someone chooses. Recent maintenance includes new tires, new clutch and a rebuilt carburetor. In 1955 Ford introduced the Thunderbird to knock a dent into Corvette sales. Ford accomplished this with flying colors. 1955 Corvette production reached 700 units compared to Ford's whopping 16,155! Chevrolet needed some serious help if they were going to save the Corvette. Eventually Ford decided to lean more towards the luxury side and away from the performance side that the Corvette was pursuing. The Thunderbird has had a long and interesting run over the years. However, there's no mistaking the first run of the 1955 through 1957 T-Birds. They are the most collectible of any Thunderbird and will always be the most collectible. These hard and soft top equipped Thunderbirds are very cool, giving you the coupe and convertible feel all in one car. Call our St. Louis showroom for more information on this early T-bird at 618-271-3000 or email STL@gatewayclassiccars.com. To view HD photos and video, visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com

1953 Ford F100 Pickup

1953 Ford F100 Pickup


Engine: 350 CID V8
Transmission: 350 Turbo
Mileage: 15,000 ( since rebuilt )

This awesome 1953 Ford F100 is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The F series truck has been one of the most iconic American vehicles ever built. If you want to get technical about it the introduction of the F-100 in 1953 is really the ones that put an exclamation point on that statement. Designed with the consumer in mind the cab now had a full 5 ft of space. The wrap around windshield not only looked great but gave the driver a better unobstructed view. Over the years these trucks have lent themselves to customizers making for a great canvas to add their personal touches to. This example has had extensive work performed transforming it into the custom you see today. The most notable of this work ahs to be the paint. Using a house of color pearl white for the base the paint is slick and show worthy. The flake adds to the custom look and is what you would see on show trucks of the late 60’s. The airbrushed design is reminiscent of Larry Watson’s style and is as custom as they come. Under the hood is a small block 350 that was purchased new when the truck was built. The chrome dress-up kit looks great with the chrome valve covers going nicely with the air cleaner. Bought new with the engine the TH350 transmission shifts out nicely with smooth shifts through all 3 gears. The belly burner exhaust is unique and something that was done back in the late 60’ and early 70’s keeping with that classic custom theme. The running boards have been done in vinyl and match the exterior styling which has been carried on to the inside. The bench seat has been covered in that same vinyl along with the door panels which ties the whole truck together. If you have been looking for a truck that appears to be straight out of the 60’s this one off custom has your name all over it. Options on this custom 1953 Ford F100 include Vinyl Interior, and White Wall Bias Ply Tires on Chrome Wheels. Located in our Louisville Showroom, this one off 1953 Ford F100 can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and videos at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
