RealRides of WNY - 1953 Ford Customline

This 1953 Ford Customline Tudor was from the mid-range of Ford’s lineup, between the cheaper Mainline and the more expensive Crestline. The front fender badge tells us this one came equipped with Ford’s 239.4 cu. in. V-8, which put out 110 hp. The lack of a Fordomatic badge on the trunk means this one probably has the venerable three-on-the-tree switching its gears manually. The brochure tells us that the Tudor has “…two-door safety and convenience. Seat backs tilt forward and in for easy entrance and exit. And the wide back seat is a safe ‘playground’ for the youngsters.” Saw this blue example at last summer’s Medina car show.
