RealRides of WNY - 1958 Ford

This 1958 Ford Custom 300 Tudor was spotted at the 2018 Quaker Days car show in Orchard Park. It’s one of the many classic hunks of iron owned by Gowanda’s Steven Botsford, a regular attendee of area cruise nights/car shows. This two-door features a few items out of Ford’s 1958 accessories brochure: deluxe rear deck antenna, fender shields (skirts), gunsight fender ornaments, and Fashion-Ray wheel covers are the ones we can identify in the photos. And of course, a set of whitewall tires and two-toned paint! The Custom 300 was a notch above Ford’s price leader for MY 1958 — the Custom. Also in the lineup were the Fairlane, Fairlane 500, and four different wagon models: Ranch Wagon, Country Sedan, Del Rio, and Country Squire.
