Vehicle Story

This 1955 Ford Customline two-door has an upgraded Mustang-sourced 289ci V8, an automatic transmission, and Wilwood front disc brakes. The seller has garage-kept the vehicle in New Mexico for a decade and replaced the hoses and belts in recent years. This Customline comes with a Hurst shifter, aftermarket gauges, and new whitewall tires all the way around. Finished in light blue over a two-tone blue vinyl interior, this second-generation Customline is now offered with removed original parts and a clear New Mexico title in the seller’s name.

Sold between the 1952 and 1956 model years, the Customline was a full-size vehicle offered exclusively as a two-door sedan or a four-door sedan, positioned as a mid-range offering at the time. A longer and wider second generation debuted in 1955. This Customline two-door sedan from that year is painted light blue and comes with accenting brightwork. The body features headlight eyebrows and dual fender-mounted side mirrors. The seller notes that there is rust on the rocker panels. There are a few dings around the exterior consistent with usual wear.

Steel wheels with bright hubcaps are surrounded by new whitewall tires at all four corners. Stopping power comes from Wilwood disc brakes at the front and an upgraded dual-circuit master cylinder.

The interior is fitted with reupholstered two-tone light and dark blue vinyl bench seats, complemented by the door panels, dash, and carpeting. The trunk contains a spare tire in a recessed area of the floor.

Instrumentation includes a 120-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. A trio of aftermarket gauges has been mounted below the dash. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 67K miles, although true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The 289ci V8 engine upgrade was sourced from a Ford Mustang and has an aluminum intake manifold. Recent service includes the replacement of hoses and belts. Power is directed to the rear wheels through a floor-mounted automatic transmission with a Hurst shifter.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

The sale includes the car’s removed original front drums and single-circuit master cylinder.

@Snowrunner – Could the ford be driven to minnesota ...

Hello, I’ve only driven the Blue Angel within an hour or so from my house for cars & coffee events etc., though it has been maintained that it could support longer journeys. Newer tires, belts, hoses, brakes etc. Note that cars of this era, including this one, do not have seat belts or air conditioning and prefer cruising at 55 vs 75. No problem passing at the higher speeds though. One of my favorite YouTubers, Vice Grip Garage, lived in Minnesota and cruised home some classics and is a good series to watch on how to prepare. Funny & family friendly!
