Meet Maggie !!!! Maggie is an all original 1949 Ford 2 Door with only 42,000 original miles.
This is because her original owner Aunt Margaret, got sick and put Maggie in a Shed in Parker AZ (dry so no rust) in 1956 and was not pulled out of the shed until Aunt Magaret died in 1998.
Her neices and nephews kept Maggie to drive around for fun when they vacationed in Aunt Magarets house down by the Colorado River.
She incurred a few scratches and dents but was kept in tip top running order and was well loved by the family until I recently bought her.
I almost kept the original paint due to the nice patina, but there were just too many scratches and small dents, so I treated Maggie to full body work and paint job still to the original color…
But everything else on the car is wonderful condition so we left it bone stock.
I gave this lady some fender skirts, but she did not need anything else…
even the original am radio works and sounds great.
Best thing is the motor, original Flat Head V8 starts right up and runs like a top, the 3 speed on the column shifts smooth and it brakes and steers like a 2 year old car, not a over 60 year old car.
I’ve had two other shoebox fords that I thought were the best ever, but I doubt you could ever find an original 49 or 50 ford as nice and original as Maggie.
We will hate to see her go but it is time she is enjoyed and taken to car shows to show her off.
