As the first new postwar models offered by Ford Motor Company, the redesigned 1949 passenger-car lineup was as crucial to its maker’s ongoing success as the pre-war Model A, Model T, and the revolutionary V-8 models of 1932. Breaking from tradition with fresh and modern styling that was lower and wider than before, the new-for-1949 Fords featured “envelope” styling with fully integrated fenders and a low, full-width grille delineated by neat chrome trim and punctuated by a faux jet intake at the center. Passenger space was good, with the new Fords built upon a new ladder frame offering a useful, yet rational 114-inch wheelbase. Mechanical specifications were updated to match the new styling, with a new wishbone-type front suspension and longitudinal rear springs replacing the former solid front axles and transverse leaf springs. As before, both six-cylinder and V-8 engines were available. A three-speed manual was the sole transmission available for ’49, with overdrive optional. Standard and upscale Custom trim levels provided further distinction. Upon their release at New York’s posh Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, they were the first all-new Ford models in more than a decade. Importantly, their introduction on June 10, 1948 preceded new-car introductions by archrivals Chrysler and General Motors, gaining valuable press coverage and positioning Ford as “the automaker to beat” in the increasingly expansive postwar era. The 1949 Ford models and their fresh, clean styling drew wide praise and put the warmed-over 1942 styling into the distant past while positioning Ford for the successes yet to come in the 1950s. The 1950 Ford passenger cars appeared little changed from their 1949 model-year counterparts, however numerous welcomed detail updates spurred advertisements heralding “50 improvements for ’50.” Representing the top of Ford’s model range, this Outstanding 1950 Southern Estate Classic Ford Custom Deluxe Convertible is the product of a loving Ground Up Award Winning Restoration. Total investment exceeds $70,000. Finished in its original and delightfully appealing shade of Matador Red paint (only available on Convertibles) over a restored two-tone red/black leather interior, Black Convertible Top and a restored fascia and instruments, the dashing Ford is exquisitely detailed inside and out.
