Classic Car Overview

This 1951 Ford Custom Tudoor sedan Is pure vintage cool. That means flathead V8 power, a complete brightwork package, and all the other details that make you love one of the most significant post-war designs ever. For the brief three years this design was available, the 1951 version is the final and often most sough-after. Thats because of the brightwork, so its great to have it looking so complete and authentic here. Up front they doubled that amount of bullet-nosed boldness, and in the rear, the cool wraparound taillight/tailfin was even longer. Speaking of wraparound, the bright side trim still retained the full-length sweeping effect, but now it followed the bodywork all the way around the rear. And this one has all the best classic style, right down to the two-piece factory wheel covers. The maroon paint is an updated color, but it has been aged in well enough that it looks pure vintage. You even have cool period-correct pieces like the windshield sunshade and fender skirts. The maroon interior is highly original. There were a few updates along the way - including recovering the seats and seatbelts - but nothing gets in the way of that vintage feeling. These two-door sedans have a nice profile on the outside while still offering a large back seat and rear vent windows. So it makes for a fine classic to invite others along for the ride. The big steering wheel feels great in your hands, and beyond that everything looks correct - from the large speedometer to the AM radio thats still on display. The period-correct presentation continues under the hood. Everything from the oil bath air cleaner to the 6-volt generator gives this a look and feel of authenticity. In fact, the motors casting year fits ideally into the cars timeline, and so we believe it to be original to the car. But more than just looking honest and stock, the 239 cubic-inch flathead is a great engine for enjoying classic motoring. The V8 makes a seriously sweet tune from updated Cherry Bomb dual exhaust, and the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission adds to the era 50s-style fun. The shoebox Ford really got the company back on track after WWII, and thats why they always hold a place in our enthusiast heart. So to find the most desirable year also looking so authentic is a sweet deal for those who love true automotive history. Call today!!!
