Car: Ford Customline Club Coupe
What makes it special: The Customline was produced by the Ford Motor Company for model years 1952 to 1956. The car was introduced in 1952 as the mid-range model in that year’s US Ford range, positioned below the Ford Crestline and above the Ford Mainline. It was offered in 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé & 4-door station wagon body styles. with the coupe marketed as the Club Coupe.
What made it famous: The 1954 Customlines used the 1952-53 bodies with only minor changes. Engines were now a 115 hp 223 cid inline six-cylinder or 130 hp 239 cid overhead valve V8.
Why I would want one: Love the 50’s Ford styling and use of chrome and brightwork.
Fun fact: The Customline was not carried over to the 1957 model year.
