The Ford of the future hugs and sweeps around a curve with the new independent Hydra-Coil front springs and the velvet smooth action of the lubricated for life Para-Flex parallel rear springs.

Paint and chrome is excellent.

Engine compartment and trunk well detailed.

Heater

Power top

Dual exhaust

Fender skirts

1949 WA plates, licence for life.
