1950 Miss Loved kustom chopped lead sled custom for sale
1950 Ford – Miss Loved / Cross Country Custom
Since I first started building this car, my intentions were to sell her after I enjoyed her in order to support my shop. I would hate to see her go, as would all my pals who helped so much, but I know it will be only to better my workshop. In doing so it would mean that I could build more kustom cars in the future. I have had my fun, building this car in about 7 months with countless hours and sleepless nights. Putting some 12,000 miles since completion in January 2011. Yes I have driven this car never trailered! Don’t have any major issues to report off. Now its time to let somebody else enjoy the ride.
You can find the build from start to finish here:

It has also been recognized all over the country as I have driven her to the Grand National Roadster Show for its big debut, it was honored with 7 awards! Took home Best Kustom at Billetproof Florida and Ground Hog Gala. At the Leadsled Spectacular in Kansas brought home a couple more awards and some magazine photo shoots. It has also attended countless other in town shows. This car is built to drive, but dont think it is a “modern” version of what they did in the 50′s, this rig has 4 wheel drums, no power steering, no power windows; other than the hidden i-pod stereo and overdrive trans this is my time machine. Driving around in this car takes you back in time when things were a little slower paced. Even though she goes about 80 down the highway with no problems getting about 20 mpg, its built to cruise.
Please serious buyers / offers only. I will consider trade plus cash for a 47-49 Chevy 5 window solid project truck minimal rust, will consider older trucks but not newer. This car can be driven anywhere.
