1950 Ford Custom

Caldwell, TX

I picked up this 1950 Ford 4 door flathead 6 Shoebox. It's pretty solid and about 65% complete. The floors are pretty good. Only had one 6" x 3" place I had to cut out and replace. I'm buying new old stock when I can. The only thing I couldn't find was the trunk striker, so I fired up the forge and made one. I found the turn signal kit and a windshield washer kit. Both were options in 1950. I took out the original wiring harness and will replace it with a new harness I picked up. I'm also going to convert the car from 6 volt positive ground to 12 volt negative ground. I've also got a complete conversion kit to go with the wiring harness. I'm 62, retired and hoping to take my wife and grandkids out for ice cream in it sometime in the fall.
