1949 Ford Convertible

Vehicle Story

That's me behind the wheel in the mid-1950's in San Gabriel, Calif. WATCH THE VIDEOS: The second video is a Ford commercial for its new line of vehicles. They talk about the convertible at 5:16 into it.

This '49 Ford is a time capsule. I bought it from the original owner in 1950 for $1700. He was serving in Korea at the time. I drove it for about 10 years and then parked it in 1961. It's been in storage ever since.

Here's the Hagerty value for this car.

  • Year 1949
  • Make Ford
  • Model Convertible
  • Exterior Color Cream
  • Interior Color Green
Would I consider selling it?
Don't even ask!
