Ford introduced their post-war sedans in 1949. They were dubbed the
'shoebox' Fords and were the most modern looking vehicle produced
in the era. In '51 Ford added a new front-end with a 'dual spinner'
grill that made the body appear much wider than previous models.
Our 1951 Deluxe Tudor Sedan has been in the possession of one
family since new and has been partially restored over the years.
The Ford left the factory with a Black exterior but received a full
Burgundy respray in 1998. It is accented by steel wheels
w/caps/beauty rings and wide-white BFG Silvertown bias-ply tires.
(A pair of rear fender skirts are also included in the sale.) The
interior was also refreshed with burgundy/gray cloth upholstery and
door cards. The classic dashboard looks much like it did in 1951
including a factory AM radio (working) and wind-up clock.
Everything under the hood looks original. This sedan is powered by
Ford's 239ci flathead V8 (B-code) rated at 100hp. It is said to
have never been rebuilt and is backed by a 3-speed manual
transmission with column shift. Factory differential gearing for
the '51 Ford is 3.73:1. Front suspension is coil springs along with
semi-elliptic rear springs. The electrical system is a
generator-based 6-volt setup and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes
provide stopping power. This classic '51 Ford Deluxe is ready for
your next summer cruise-in. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
