For Sale: 1951 Ford Victoria in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Only 23 miles since the high end custom build from the ground up by P.G. Series Street Rods in San Diego. Paul Garret is known for building world class hot rods. This is from the prestigious Sam Pack collection.

EXTERIOR: Outstanding! This car glows. Stripped to a bare metal shell. It was cleaned up by shaving the door handles, gas tank door, hood trim and chrome quarter panel trim. The inner fenders were custom made. The body work is phenomenal, absolutely straight. There's not a ripple or a dimple anywhere that I could find. No rust, damage or problem areas. Gorgeous PPG Sunset Pearl Orange and a black roof. Both have 4 coats of clear and a gloss that looks wet. All of the chrome has been replated. The bumpers are smoothed out with no bumper bolts showing. The stainless was straightened and it looks like it was chromed. The glass is tinted. All the gaskets and weatherstrips were replaced. Jambs are slick, chrome hardware was used. It rolls on 20x8.5 Boyd's smoothie wheels and Nitto performance tires. It has an air ride system that let's you drop it to the ground for an even more dramatic look.

INTERIOR: Dynomated. Custom made center console. Flaming River tilt column. 340 watt premium sound system. It was completely gutted and then it was lined with dynomat sound deadener. Down on the floor is premium carpet with matching mats. It has reclining bucket seats in front. The upholstery is glovesoft leather with real ostrich and suede inserts. The door panels are custom made. Overhead is a suede like fabric on the headliner and visors. The interior metal is painted just as slick as the car. It has a real nicely designed custom center console. It starts at the back seat and merges into the dash. The controls are mostly hidden under the dash. It features a full set of Dolphin gauges. It has a 340 watt Pioneer stereo with 6 hidden speakers. There is also a Pioneer DVD player with a color screen on the dash. Nice billet a/c controls and vents. A Flaming River tilt column has a steering wheel that is matched to the wheels. It has seat belts. Very comfortable inside.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine bay is all smoothed out metal painted in gloss orange. Chrome hinges and hardware. The engine is a 5.7 LT-1 by Street and Performance. It has aluminum heads, fuel injection and thermal coated headers. It's fully dressed with aluminum parts- valve covers, custom intake cover, alternator, brackets and March pulleys with serpentine belt system. Modern power steering system has remote billet reservoir and braided stainless hoses. The a/c components are polished aluminum and has stainless braided hoses. The motor runs cool with an aluminum water pump, radiator, overflow bottle and a chrome electric fan.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It opens with a remote. The entire trunk compartment has been boxed and upholstered, even under the trunk lid. The floor is carpeted and that is where the fuel cap is located. There's a battery disconnect switch, the battery is located behind the back panel. The air ride tanks are behind the side panels.

UNDERSIDE: It rides on Firestone Rapid Response air suspension. It has dual compressors and tanks. Custom independent front suspension with chromoly tubular control arms, chrome shocks, rack & pinion steering and chrome swaybar. In back it has chromoly tubular 4 link suspension with polished aluminum gas shocks. Baer brake system with 14 inch drilled and slotted rotors, billet calipers at all 4 wheels. It has power brakes and the e-brake is hooked up. Custom thermal coated exhaust. It has a high torque starter, chrome oil pan, filter and flywheel cover. The trans is a 4L60E automatic overdrive from Street and Performance. It has a chrome pan and a remote oil cooler. In back is a new Ford 9 inch rear with 3.73 posi gears. The frame has been smoothed out. The bottom of this car is painted the same gloss orange as the top.

This car is drop dead gorgeous. It will stand out, even amongst other beautiful cars. A build like this at a professional shop would take well over a year and well over $125,000.
This one is done and ready!
