1949 Ford Custom Sedan "Shoebox Ford" Drive a piece of history- mechanically sound and only needs basic cosmetic restoration.
The doors and door handles are all still functional.
The dash area must have seemed very futuristic when this sedan debuted, with the large dial of its speedometer sitting just above the row of control switches.
All that refinement this 49 offers came with no loss of trunk space - there's a lot of it surrounding the area were the full size spare would sit.
You won't see much in life that's gone through nearly seven decades before emerging in the impressive condition shown by this Ford's drivetrain. The original 3.7L/226 CID L-head straight-6 starts right up and, remains fully capable of real-world driving around town with NO LEAKS.
The car has its original 3-speed manual transmission and features a pull-handle activated overdrive gear whose first use will take you back in time.
A look below at the solid undercarriage will reveal yet another feature that was revolutionary for its time: a ladder-style steel frame that carries a fully-independent front suspension.
The windshield, rear window, and the 2 back seat windows have all been recently replaced and the replacement rubber seals come with the car. There is a crack in the driver's side roll down window.
