We love cars that have survived all these years without being molested, chopped, or left out in the elements! Outside of maybe one repaint many years ago, we feel this 1953 Ford Mainline Tudor Sedan is a true 43k mile survivor. Benefitting from a new set of wide white skins, this flathead powered old Ford is ready to cruise! A radio and clock delete car, the original owner didn't cut cost in the engine compartment, opting for the optional 239cid Flathead 8, which purrs beautifully when you hit the key. Shifting is nice and smooth with the 3spd on the column. Interior appears to be original, and is in wonderful shape! Original decals under the hood even remain, helping one think the mileage could certainly be on the first go-around. Would you keep it stock, or jazz it up with dual carbs and dual exhaust? Either way, this one is sure to impress wherever you go! Reasonable offers encouraged, financing/shipping available, we sell worldwide! Ford introduced all-new models for 1952, beating rival Chevrolet to the punch by a full year. The Mainline became FoMoCo’s entry-level model, and it featured a more modern style than the basic Deluxe it replaced. Wraparound windshield, curved rear glass, a modified grille, and more ornamentation to break up the earlier “Shoebox” Ford’s slab sides gave the new Mainline a fresh look. The Mainline came standard with an overhead-valve six-cylinder that displaced 215cid and made 101 hp. A 239-cid L-head engine was optional, and it used a two-barrel carburetor to create 110 hp. A three-speed manual transmission was standard, while overdrive and Ford-O-Matic were optional with either motor. Body styles included a business coupe, Tudor and Fordor sedans, and a two-door Ranch station wagon. The 1953 Ford Mainline was largely the same as the previous year, with a slightly simpler grille and different side brightwork. Body choices and prices were essentially the same, as were powertrain choices. Power steering became a welcome option this model year. The Ford Mainline was very popular, with more than one million making it to the road, and any Mainline is relatively easy to maintain assuming rust and rot are kept in check. All in all, the car is an affordable way to experience a mainstream 1950s American car.
