1950 Ford Custom

This 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe is a very nice, low mileage example in Palisade Green. It’s a mostly original car with less than 34,000 documented miles on the odometer.

It has had one repaint but this is likely to have been decades ago.

The 1950 models were visually very similar to the best-selling 1949 models that had caused a sensation when they were launched. While offering just minor refinements and trim changes, Ford had produced a much improved car. Gone were the problems with water and dust coming through the cracks in the body and the steering was much improved. Also now present were push-button door handles.

Mohair or Broadcloth covered the new for ’50, “non-sag” front seat springs.
