    Price: 11,900 OBO
    For sale: 1954 Ford Mainline Business Coupe Kustom/Hot Rod. Finished in satin blue with a metal flake roof and custom pin striping inside and out. Asking $11,900 OBO. The business coupes are pretty rare and hard to find, would be great as it sits as a mild Kustom, but would also make a fantastic Gasser as well. 1954 was the first year with the modern ball joint suspension, and last year of this 52-54 shoebox body style.

    I just don't have space for it anymore, and would like to move on to a new project and put some money towards a motorcycle and a new car.

    Exterior:

    - DuPont Satin blue paint with metal flake/lace roof and custom pinstriping
    - Rear wheel well skirts included but not currently installed
    - Original chrome shows pitting and some rust, but is all there and pretty straight
    - Stainless trim is all there as well and in good shape
    - Faux spotlights
    - Lake pipes (decorative)
    - Floor pans were repaired by previous owner using rivets and seam sealer, so not ideal but solid.
    - Some bondo in the rear quarter, and I would call the paint a 20 footer (overall pretty good, but there are some some blemishes, chips, scratches, etc). Shows really well though.

    Lots more I'm sure I'm missing. Send me a PM if you have any questions or want to come take a look!
