In 1949, Ford Australia announced the release of a new V8 vehicle to replace it's aging V8 series.  Known as the Ford Custom Single Spinner, it featured a new twin spinner grille, independent suspension, and modern slab styling on a 114" wheelbase.  Coming in two models, the Sedan or the Utility, prices started at 1044.  It remained in production until 1952 when it was replaced by the Custom Twin Spinner.
