Credit: Original article published by Classic Cars Journal.

Parked on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this restored 1949 Ford Custom two-door sedan up for auction.

During the Ford’s frame-off restoration, it was repainted in a maroon color, the wiring was replaced and the car was fitted with a new interior.

The body features chrome bumpers, side trim, a split-pane front windshield and pop open rear vent windows.

Inside the car are front and rear bench seats finished in two-tone gray and cream factory-style upholstery.

Powering the car is a 239cid flathead 8-cylinder supplied by a single-barrel carburetor and factory rated at 100 horsepower. Power is sent to the rear through a column-shifted 3-speed manual gearbox.

The odometer reads just over 43,000 miles. According to the seller, the Custom’s restoration was completed about 3,000 miles ago and the seller has only driven the car about 100 miles since.

The auction ends February 23 at 12:30 p.m. MST.
