1951 Ford Custom Deluxe Sedan
The old shoebox Fords are always popular classics and have been the basis for some of the coolest customs out there. This 1951 Ford Sedan is a nice solid classic with a body that is all rust free. It is coated in a nice dark Blue paint that suits the car well. All of the original style chrome is in place and all in good shape. These cars had a ton of stainless trim along both sides, around the windows, and leading to the rear taillight bezels. The car also comes complete with a Fulton Sunshield Visor which really adds to the vintage look. And the classic dual bullet front bumper is a 1951 distinguishing look. The glass is all in good condition throughout and has the two piece style front windshield. The lights are all working properly and it also has the drivers side spotlight which works. You often see the spotlights added just for cosmetics and aren't wired in so it is cool to see one that actually lights up well and works as it should. The wheels are painted to match the body and fitted with original Ford hubcaps. A big contributor to the overall appearance is the Wide White wall tires on all four corners that really look great on the car.
Turning those tires is a Flathead V8 motor that was rebuilt only 500 miles ago. It starts up well and runs smoothly. Most of the components are painted in the original Copper color that was found on Flatheads in the late 40s/early 50s so it is period correct. It is backed by a 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive. However the overdrive is currently disconnected. All of the brakes were just gone through on the car and rebuilt so it has plenty of stopping power.
The interior of the car is done in a Blue and White combo and the upholstery work is in good condition. A split back bench seat sits nicely up front and the padding is in good shape. The Blue and White combo continues onto the door panels which are fitted with the original style handles and armrests. The dash of the car is painted Blue to match the body and is topped with all of the original gauges, trim, knobs, switches, etc. An aftermarket gauge pod was added to provide an Amp, Temp, and Oil pressure gauge. The original radio is still there and works. The car is still its original 6 volt system. The trunk of the car houses the original spare and has a rubber mat lining the floor.

With Monterey Car Week around the corner, I can’t help but daydream about the wonderful drive along the Pacific Coast Highway.
The four-door luxury convertible is pretty much an extinct configuration, gone by way of 1960s Lincoln Continentals, unless you count a couple of recent concept cars.
From the Tammy Allen collection and set to cross the block without reserve during the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas option is this 1940 Ford Deluxe custom sedan.
After World War II, some car dealers distributed their limited inventory on a lottery basis.
With all the attention given to so-called barn finds, how great is it to discover an all-original, preserved classic that’s old enough to apply for Medicare
It took almost 50 years and a build team of nine, but I once again am the proud owner of a 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe.
Classic car week begins today in Arizona and, as always, the six auctions taking place in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area through January 18 will tout their offerings in hyperbolic terms.
