Here is a look at the men and their cars. The bootleggers and the machines
that got the moonshine out of the mountains, over the roads, past the law,
and into the speakeasies

Looking to kick the summer off in a super sharp cruiser that you can
display at local car shows and parade down Main Street? You could always
buy a nice Chevrolet like everyone else, you could find a cool old Dodge
and raise a few eyebrows, or you can call Vanguard Motor Sales and snatch
up this unique 1950 Ford Crestliner convertible! It packs a stout flathead
V8 in a stunningly clean, restored steel body. If you're looking for a
weekend warrior that'll draw big crowds and big compliments wherever it
goes, this impressive '50 Ford is the incredible value you've been waiting
This striking Crestliner is a solid classic that's been very well cared
for. The light yellow paint is beautifully laid over a solid straight metal
body. The chrome is absolutely stunning and the stainless is superb. Check
out that hood ornament, I don't think I have ever seen one like it before.
I really can't describe how nice this car is, you will just have to see it
in person. The power convertible top is in 'like-new' condition, and the
boot snaps on without any effort. This isn't one of those boots that takes
two people and a lot of muscle to stretch to fit. The doors open and close
without any effort at all, the gaps, margins and lips are clean and rust
free. This is one beautiful piece of American history.
The car's reliable flathead V8 engine looks good and runs great. Its engine
bay is nicely painted, from the inner fenders, to the firewall and the
underside of the hood. The very original motor compartment includes all of
the heat components including the heater motor, duct work and lines. The
hydraulic pump for the power top works great, and is very rare to find in
these cars. You will also find the 6 volt battery and generator. The
rebuilt radiator has been re-cored as well. This is one original '50 Ford
under the hood, and just beautiful!
Take one look underneath this stunning drop top and you'll find a solid
X-frame undercarriage which has been properly maintained for the last 62
years. The underside of the vehicle has been undercoated. There is no rust
to be found under here. The rockers are solid, showing no patch work.
Motivation is provided by a sturdy 3-on-the-Tree transmission. This is a
very original undercarriage, including the Exhaust, rear end and drum brakes. Newer brake
lines and Glass Pack mufflers can be found out back. The front suspension
has been nicely painted, and the bushings are in good shape. The bottom of
this Crestliner presents very well with solid floors, a straight frame that
shows no indication of damage, and a slew of road ready parts that all
function just as they should.
Pop this cool convertible's doors and you'll find a tasteful and
comfortable custom interior. In front of the driver is the beautiful
steering wheel and central speedometer/gauge combination. Starting at the
left side of that speedo, you will find the push button starter, lights and
wiper controls. Just underneath the base of the steering wheel are the air
and blower controls. At the right of the gauge cluster is the key hole and
choke. The Magic Air system controls are just below the key hole and choke.
The control for the power top is next to the parking brake handle. Centered
in the dash is an analog clock and AM radio, and to the right is the
locking glove box. The carpet and upholstery are in great condition as
well. Out back is a nicely restored trunk with a large storage area and
spare tire. This is a convertible made for cruisin'!
This exceptionally clean 1950 Ford Crestliner is one of the coolest
cruisers on the planet! It is a unique hot rod that sets itself apart from
the sea of restored 'tri-fives' and full-size land yachts. Solid, well-done
early 50s metal like this doesn't come along too often, and given the
attention it draws in our showroom, it won't last long either! Call 7 days
