1949 Ford Shoebox 3.9L 100 Horsepower

Listing Description

1949 Ford Convertible, Flathead V8.
With Overdrive, 100 HP, 239 CID

Popularly called the "Shoebox Ford"; for its slab-sided, "ponton"; design, the 1949 Ford is credited both with saving Ford and ushering in modern streamlined car design with changes such as integrated fenders and more.  Ford completely redesigned its namesake car for the year 1949. Save for its drive-train, this was an all-new car in every way, with a modern ladder frame now supporting a coil spring independent suspension in front and longitudinal semi-elliptical springs in back. The engine was moved forward to make more room in the passenger compartment and the antiquated "torque tube"; was replaced by a modern drive shaft.

Fully documented!

This car was assembled at the Chester Assembly Plant in Chester, PA on September 23,
1949. It was the 226th car off the line that day. Dr. W.O. Ulrich, M.D. bought it new. John
Cascio (a retired judge from Pittsburgh, pa) bought it twenty-five years later from his uncle. He
borrowed $5,000 from his parents to buy it. The judge used the car on his honeymoon and
kept it 40 years until the car was sold to the current owner in November 2015.
