1500 Locust Street Des Moines, IA 50309515-245-9100
Very Rare and unique, frame-off restored 1954 Ford Crestline, Sunliner convertible with see thru Day/Night Demonstrator hood. One of only 1500 produced in 1954, showcasing a one year only Ford 239 V8 engine with power steering and Vintage AC, that is nicely concealed. A lot of pride was taken in the extensive restoration of this car. The 239 engine rebuild and Fordomatic automatic transmission was completed by engine builder, Matt Ridgeway. A comprehensive nut and bolt frame-off restoration was completed by Max's Collision & Body Shop and was painted in a beautiful shade of Ford, Torch Red and was jeweled with very nice chrome all the way around, including bumpers, grill, trim, emblems and continental tire kit on the back. After the paint job was completed, Interior specialist, Nick Cua, completed the interior restoration including, color correct, AE-code, two-tone red and white interior, matching carpet and door panels, freshly painted red dash with refurbished gauges and bezel and topped off with a new white soft top. This iconic Ford is rolling in style on steel wheels and wide white wall tires and Ford wheel covers for that factory correct look.
