1950 FORD 2 DOOR SPORTS SEDAN
1950 saw a new Crestliner “sports sedan”—a 2-door sedan with 2-tone paint intended to battle Chevrolet’s popular hardtop coupe of 1950. Another new name was Country Squire, which referred to the 2-door wood-sided station wagon. All wagons received flat-folding middle seats at mid-year, an innovation that would reappear in the minivans of the 1990s. The 1949 and 1950 styling was similar, with a single central “bullet” in the frowning chrome grille. In the center there was a red space that had either a 6 or 8 depending if the car had the six-cylinder engine or the V8. The trim lines were renamed as well, with “Standard” becoming “Deluxe” and “Custom” renamed “Custom Deluxe”. The new Fords got the now-famous “Ford Crest” which appeared on the division’s vehicles for many decades in one form or another. A Deluxe Business Coupe was also marketed.
This is a very nice clean 1950 sedan. The car has a fresh 302 V8 and automatic transmission, runs and shifts great. Car also has dual exhaust that sounds nice. New wiring, all lights work including turn signals.
The exterior is presentable but not a show condition. The body is very straight, chrome is very nice, glass is nice only one front passenger side small glass is cracked (see pictures). The undercarriage is solid just some minor imperfections.
The interior is very complete and it looks clean. The gauges and speedometer work, has aftermarket temperature and fuel gauges. The headliner is nice, floors are clean. Overall very presentable interior. This is a nice driver quality car.
