For Sale: 1951 Ford Custom in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1951 Ford Custom two-door sedan does a terrific job of being a period-correct hot rod. With nice metallic paint, the right accessories, and a legendary flathead V8 under the hood, it's a rolling icon.


The '51 Ford has always been a popular one with the custom car scene because it really represents the first piece of automotive optimism after WWII. But to get it this right takes someone with an eye for detail. There are great hot rod details like the louvered hood, lowered suspension, wide whitewalls, and a spotlight on display. And the faux lake pipes are part of a great classic custom cruiser tradition. Of course another reason why these show so well is all the bright work that details everything from the dual bullet-nose grille to the wraparound chrome bumpers. But the actual body is relatively free of obsessive ornamentation, which allows the shine of the burgundy to really pop on this Ford's upright shoulders. So this classic really knows how to make the scene day or night.


The interior has a great feeling of authenticity with the cloth pattern on the seats nicely matching the doors, complete trim, and a correct and taut headliner. Even the details are nice, like the artful dual spoke steering wheel and the AM radio on display. Plus, as a two-door sedan, you have coupe-like doors but plenty of rear seat space to share with family and friends.


Under the hood is a terrific vintage presentation. After all, if you're a Ford fan, it's had to beat the copper-top of Ford's famous flathead V8. It's correctly accessorized with everything from the dual barrel carb to the dual Ford radiator hoses doing their 90-degree plunge. The V8 fires up nicely, and the glasspack-style dual exhaust makes a nice tone. Plus, you are in complete control of it all thanks to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.


The trim name of this upper-end Ford is Custom, and that's exactly what you get in this package. It's a coupe that's distinct and iconic, and it's ready to run right now. Call today!!!
