Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this 1953 Ford Customline.

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.
