Description

The Ford Customline was king of Australian Roads in the 1950s. With its lusty overhead-valve Y-Block V8 engine, sprawling room for six, huge boot and top speed of 90 miles per hour, the ‘Cusso’ represented a big step up from the Holden. Locally assembled in Geelong, the Aussie Customlines were based on the RHD  Canadian models. The 1955 model was the purest in styling with its simple grille and straight-through chrome strip from nose to tail.

History

- Authentic example
- Chrome centre caps and whitewall tyres
- Part of a Ford collection


This eminently useable example brings the 1950s right into the present. It comes with a haul of spares, including cylinder head, camshaft, rocker covers, exhaust manifold and water pump. This special opportunity to buy an affordable Customline has arisen because the owner and his partner sold the family home and their Ford collection to relocate to a retirement village.  The vehicle is currently registered, however will be sold Unregistered.

Note: Shannons advise that all potential buyers research all vehicles before purchase to authenticate originality.
