Description for Ford Other 1949

'49 Custom Club Coupe. Real deal patina rod, originally from a North Dakota field. Body is straight and solid. Front floors & rockers replaced, the rest of the floors are solid. Built to drive. Hopped up flathead can handle summertime Chicago city traffic without overheating. With the T-5 transmission it can cruise down the interstate all day. Still a bit of a rough beast. Interior is an army blanket and some foam over the stock bench springs. No soundproofing, very little insulation. Finish it any way you want, or keep it as is. Draws a crowd everywhere.
