Lot 242: Ford Crestline Sunliner Convertible

The Charlie Thomas Collection 2012, RM Auctions (20 October 2012)

110 hp, 239 cu. in. L-head V-8 engine, Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring front suspension, semi-elliptic rear leaf springs with live axle, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115 in. The 1953 Ford Sunliner Convertible pictured here is one of 40,861 produced during the model year. It is finished in Code M Coral Flame with a matching red and black interior. The upholstery has a presentable fit and finish with hardly a blemish to be found. The 239 V-8 still looks great since the restoration, as the engine bay is quite clean. Likewise, the trunk compartment has been restored with a proper jack, spare tire, and rubber mat. Features and options include a three-speed column-shift transmission, power top, AM radio, dash mounted clock, Magic-Aire heater/defroster, wide whitewall radial tires, and fender skirts. Just over 34,000 miles show on the odometer and, while not documented, its condition indicates that they may be original.
