For Sale: 1951 Ford Custom in La Verne, California

Vehicle Description

1951 FORD CUSTOM TUDOR SEDAN STK #: HOWARD51 For the brief three years this design was available, the 1951 version is the final and often most sough-after. That's because of the bright work. Up front they doubled that amount of bullet-nosed boldness, and 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 factory wheel covers and whitewall tires. 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 that's still on display. All lights and gauges operate is intended from the factory. It is powered by the iconic and original 239ci Ford Flathead V8 Engine and mated to the original 3-Speed Manual Transmission. Equipped with a 2 Barrel Carburetor, this baby is All Original! With 131,588 original miles, the engine runs strong with great oil pressure and has never had the need to be rebuilt (Odometer only reads 31,588 due to mechanical limitations) . You will not find any leaks on this car! It was garage kept and well maintained in California by the same family for 65 years before the current owner purchased the car. There is no evidence of any accidents or bondo on the car whatsoever. Complete with New Brakes, New Hoses, New Belts, New period correct Interior, New Gold colored Paint, Firestone Wide Whitewall tires wrapped around the factory wheel covers w/ beauty rings and Dual Outside Chrome Mirrors. Comes with all matching keys for ignition, glove box and trunk. It features excellent Chrome, Trim and Brightwork, including the factory optioned bumper guards and rear fender skirts. Those dual bullet-nose elements leading the way, full-length side trim, and taillights that wrap around the rear...it's all part of the stunning package. You can see it all so well because of the quality of the trim and the high gloss of the gold paint. The trunk has even been finished in a carpet material, including the spare tire cover. Originally built in Kansas City, Missouri. Don't let this iconic shoebox classic pass you by or you will be left wanting! ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
