In 1950 and 1951 the Ford Crestliner was a limited edition tudor sedan easily distinguished by its vivid contrasting colour sweep and ample chrome attributes. In these years the Crestliner came standard with fender skirts and two toned paint which was matched to the black padded factory vinyl top with painted trim. The Crestliner also came with the gold anodized emblems to enhance the trim level. The only choice for power was the coveted 239 V-8 boasting 100 hp and a 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive. In late 1951 Ford introduced an automatic transmission option in the 3 speed Ford-O-Matic. Be it a weekend cruiser or a sporty old school beast this car is an eye catcher from afar.
There were only 8703 of these Crestliners built in 1951 since Ford had introduced the Custom Victoria that was popular enough to reach the 100,000 unit plateau and surpass.
Our pristine example of the 1951 Crestliner has spent the last several years in a climate controlled environment where it was pampered as a museum piece.
