Description for Ford Club Coupe 1949

Here, I'm offering on auction a 1949 Ford Club Coupe. I will not ship it; buyer must arrange shipping.

This car runs and drives. It has a clean title and it is registered in California.

Features include a 1952-1954 Ford accessory “K-wheel” steering wheel with restored horn ring; old chrome window garnish moldings and speaker grill; a stock 1949 Ford steering column and gear shift; updated electric wipers that work; blue-and-white tuck-and-roll with white piping on the front seat, and enough extra material to upholster the back seat, which is currently just a frame. Also, the flip-out rear side windows have been restored to the extent that they have new weatherstripping and they flip out; the chrome is still old and not perfect.

Mechanicals: it has a Chevy 305 small block painted Chevy orange with valve covers done by Dennis Ricklefs. Custom old-style oil bath air cleaner has been modified to hide a modern paper element. Automatic transmission and a new 9-inch Ford rear end on mono leafs with two-inch blocks out back. Master cylinder is new but stock style and in the stock position under the floor. Engine has an Edlebrock carb, and rams horn manifolds with dual exhaust through vintage Hush Power glass packs and pencil tips out back.

Car has a Street Rod Engineering front clip with disc brakes and power steering. It has been rewired with a kit from American Auto Wire. Headlights and taillights work great.

Only bad rust is in spare tire well and roof, as shown, but the car comes with most of a spare roof -- minus the back window, but definitely enough to fix this one. Otherwise, the car is solid and needs only finish body work. Previous rust and damage has been fixed in the quarter panels, passenger rocker and floor; floor has a custom panel made to finish the floor by fully enclosing the transmission.

Passenger door is dead-stock 1949 Ford; decklid is from another 1949 Ford and has work underway to shave it. There's a remote release trunk cable mounted under the car that works great. Car is running stock 1949 Ford bumpers -- including the one-year-only 1949 rear bumper which unlike the 1950 bumper, lacks the horizontal stiffening rib on the outside.

Car has been shaved, nosed and decked. It has a 1951 Ford hood and hinges and hood latch panel, and a 1949 Mercury grill surround. Gas filler has been moved to the trunk. Most metal work was done about five-six years ago.

Car is running Firestone 6.00-16 wide whites on 16-inch International truck wheels but it comes with a set of five 1949 Ford stock 16-inch shoebox wheels that are painted black and ready to go. Domestic shoeboxes had 15-inch wheels but export cars reportedly got 16-inch wheels.

Lights and wipers work as does the trunk remote release, as previously stated. The speedometer has been restored but is not hooked up. Gauges, though, are wired. I have the clock and radio although they’re not installed, and I have essentially a full set of original dash knobs and cables, plus an original ignition switch andextra window garnish moldings that go with it, though not a full set.

This car runs a rebuilt generator, as shown. System charges the Optima battery just fine. Headlights and taillights work. Work on this car was professionally done, with the last of it done about five years ago.

This is a running, driving, first-year, short-roof shoebox, AKA a real coupe unlike all those two-door sedans out there that people say are coupes. Customization is already started and the lame stuff like wiring and the new gas tank is sorted out. This will probably need an accelerator pump for the carb down the road, but there is a lot here for the price.
