Although most Ford Customs exist today as show cars or drag racers, this 1950 Ford Custom Club Coupe forgoes the pavement in favor of dirt.

Professionally built as a rally car, this Custom nabbed a second-in-class finish in the 1997 Peking to Paris Motor Challenge. It has also participated in the ’98 Carrera Panamericana Revival and the ’99 Carrera Nevada.

Powered by a 239 cu.-in. flathead V8 built by Motor City Flatheads and backed by a five-speed manual transmission, the Ford also features a number of racing-spec components, like a cold-air intake, a reinforced fuel cell and competition-grade fuel lines.

Find this 1950 Ford Custom Club Coupe rally car available through RM Sotheby’s as part of its upcoming Hershey auction. Expected selling price is $35,000-$45,000.

That is way too cool. It should be illegal to be that cool. Punishable by having the car confiscated by me. So that I can uhhhhh...demonstrate the dangers of coolness. By driving it on dirt roads.
