This 1958 Ford Custom 300 2 door sedan (Tudor) was Ford’s shorter wheelbase car that offered great style on a budget.
You’ve never seen such luxury in a car priced so low! stated the Ford literature of the time. The buying public seemed to agree with them as Ford sold over twice as many Custom 300’s as the Chevrolet equivalent, the Delray.
On the outside it has the “Styletone” trim package offering a double chrome strip with gold anodized insert.
Inside, the car uses Gray Sof-Textured Vinyl and Gray Box-Striped Fabric.
The standard engine for the Custom 300 was a 223 inline six engine with a $137 charge if you wanted the 292 cubic inch V8. This car originally came with the former but has since had a mighty 460 cubic inch V8 installed. This is paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission with B&M shifter
