    Cablguy184's 1949 Ford Custom Sedan

    Looks like I have me a new (old) toy to work on ... a 1949 Ford 2 Door Custom Sedan !!!
    I know, i'm primarily a Chevy guy, but this one I just can not resist ... These are my dad's favorite body style cars and he has always fixed them up origional ...
    Not me !!!




    It has a Flat 6 in it now that runs great, so we plan to leave the drive train stock until we get the body and interior up to par ...
    Just not sure yet as to go with a Ford or Chevy drive train ... guess it all depands on what I can find to fix her up with at that time ...

    This is the direction I want to go with this car ... Eventually !!!
    But I must take baby steps. I do not have the budget to tear it all apart and build a practically bran new car ...
    I found these pics using Google ...






    looking at my car and then looking closely to these pics, you can tell that there is MASSIVE modification work done to the body of these cars !!! Some I plan to do to mine ... Like the frenched in head lights, going with 2 windows on each side instead of 4, body stance ... Many details !!!

    She has a 6 volt charging system that will HAVE to be changed to a 12 volt system before any Electronic modifications are done to this vehicle ...
    This motor will crank up and run great !!! Just needed a hot battery and a gallon Jug of gas ... We drove it to the work location !!!




    To date, My dad has restored 6 of these cars (I worked on most of them as a kid) ... He has 2 left, the one he is working on now and this Black one.
    It was bought about 12 years ago to be restored and for the most part, work has been done to it, but put aside SEVERAL times for other vehicles ...
    He plans to restore the Blue one, but has no intrest in selling the Black one. So, he gave it to me so it would stay in the Family.
    Over the years the car has been cranked up and moved around in the yard and has been driven up and down the road a few times, but for the most part, sits under the old tree in dad's back yard just waiting for someone to give it some TLC ...
    We've taken a hot battery and a jug of gas out into the field and cranked up his old cars for years !!! Now all of them are gone (primarily cause of his bad health) except the two 49 sedans ... I'm sure down the road that I will end up with both of them but I am definately not wanting to push that issue !!! He wants to see them completly fixed up and restored before he dies (his words) ... But I have plans to customize mine. Just to see how it turns out ...

    Interior ... Well, there isn't any ... LOL



    What do you think about our temporary gas tank ?? It works !!!



    As soon as the primary things are done to make this a running / driveable vehicle ... This will be my first place to start rebuilding and customizing !!!
    As you can see, we have plenty of room to work with when we get ready to set her up for stage and image !!!

    Re: Cablguy184's 1949 Ford Custom Sedan

    This is where we are at now ... Behind Dad's shop on blocks.



    We have the brakes completely tore apart waiting on parts ... we are going to completely rebuild the Master Cylinder and Wleel Clyinders and replace the rubber brake lines.
    From what we can tell, the "hard line" brake lines are fine ... For now
    Will I ever replace the drum brakes with power disc brakes ??? Yea later when I have the time and money. But for now, the drum brakes should work just fine ...

    Re: Cablguy184's 1949 Ford Custom Sedan

    Small update ... No pics at this time, Sorry.
    Got her brakes fixed, got stock wheels with decent tires mounted, and loaded up on the trailer and brought her home !!!

    I got her completely changed (engine only, lets get real here ...) over to a 12 volt system. Just got to install an Alternator so it will charge normal.
    Going to install a complete wiring harness as soon as possible. But for now, just have the key switch set up so it will start up and shut down the car normally ...

    I just googled and found a Dakota Digital dash cluster set for this car ... **** THEY ARE EXPENSIVE !!! ... Maybe later
    I will start looking up air conditioner setups later too ...
    I have to get out and find a suitable fuel tank so we can driver her around the block a few times in the near future ...

    In all actuality ... I do not see any reason why we couldn't plan out the dash and kick pannel drivers and start a little audio fabrication soon ...
