This 1953 Ford Mainline Business Coupe is a terrific mix of originality and the right cruiser style. It's a V8-powered two-tone classic that's likely to be unique wherever it arrives.
The trim tag tells us this is a true Mainline Business Coupe. We love them for a terrific profile that gives us a long trunk that reminds us of the iconic pre-war business coupes. And this one has even more distinction with continental kit on the to finish it off. Plus, you'll get a kick out of telling people about the rarity. While not the most expensive Ford of the day, these Business Coupes served a narrow purpose, and so they are rarer than more premium models, like the Sunliner convertible. The two-tone red and black paint has a cool kind of style. Good body lines, complete bumpers/trim, and all the right details - including the two-piece wheel covers and the jet-inspired hood ornament - mean you have great fundamentals in place that are already there for whatever future plans you have.
The interior with the salesman's theme. After all, a real business coupe has no back seat and just a fat shelf for more cargo/supplies. The front bench seat is done in a tasteful gray and a more comfy velour. The dash really likes to keep the classic attitude going, right down to details like the factory gauge package. And don't forget to check out the steering wheel. 1953 was Ford's 50th anniversary, and so these have a special center cap commemorating it.
A true salesman's car needs to be a steadfast strong runner. So it's hard to beat a hardy Ford flathead V8. This is believed to be a 239 cubic-inch unit, and the displacement would be the largest installed in the Ford cars. In fact, this is a moment of pride for Ford owners, because this would be the final year for these legendary V8s. It presents well in the engine bay with the tall oil bath air cleaner and bright head bolts. Plus, as honest as this looks, you can also spot an alternator and battery for the 12-volt system upgrades. It helps this V8 remain a strong powerhouse, and the three-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly on the column. And you'll especially love the tune of the glasspack style dual exhaust.
Rarity, distinction, and value come together to make a great classic. So don't miss this true business coupe. Call now!
