1950 FORD DELUXE FORDOR SEDAN -- $12,000
77,000 original miles, Sheridan blue with gray cloth interior, one family ownership since new, no accidents or body damage ever, $40,000 frame-off restoration completed in mid-1990s at about 60,000 miles, carefully maintained since then, shown occasionally and driven at least weekly. Currently registered in Maryland with clean title. Always garaged, stored for 25 years before restoration, currently kept in heated / air-conditioned garage.
Rebuilt flathead V-8, NOM but correct 1950 8BA motor with hardened valve seats (runs on unleaded gas), 100 HP, 3-speed trans with overdrive. All body, frame, paint, mechanical, electrical, and upholstery work complete and showing little or no wear. All restoration work documented with receipts and photo album. Car is all stock and original with exception of seat belts (welded floor mounts) and Coker whitewall radials for driving safety. No factory options except heater / defroster. Clutch, brakes, battery, suspension components (shocks & idler arm) and radiator hoses done within the past couple of years. Some spare parts (carburetor, NOS oil pump, generator, etc.) and original service manual included.
The only imperfections in the car are 1) there are two minor oil leaks (differential and trans seals) that each drip about one teaspoon a month; 2) one of the door lock knob connecting rods has detached; and 3) the electro-mechanical overdrive works properly most of the time instead of 100% of the time (this does not bother me because I do not do much highway driving). Otherwise everything works as it should and the car is in excellent overall mechanical and cosmetic condition. This car is a turnkey driver that runs fine and needs nothing.
This is not a must-sell situation, so no lowball offers please. No trades. Feel free to ask questions, and I will provide prompt, honest answers. I am not a dealer or broker, so no financing or time payment requests please. $500 non-refundable deposit required within 5 business days of auction closing; balance by electronic transfer or cashier’s check due within 10 additional business days. Will deliver locally (DC metro area).
