the bank? This '51 Ford Victoria is worth a look. The Ford Victoria
for 1951 was the first year of Ford's hardtop, meaning no post when
you roll the windows down creating a clean open air look.
This Vicky features a mild Flathead engine displacing 239 cubic
inches. This is the later 49-53 style block with a traditional
distributor that makes tune-ups easy compared to the old diving
bell distributors of prior generation flatheads! Polished
Offenhauser finned aluminum heads add compression as well as looks!
An Offenhauser single plane 4 barrel intake holds a 4barrel carb
topped by a finned aluminum air cleaner to match the heads. A new
fuel tank & fuel pump ensure good clean fuel. Exhaust is through a
set of Red's headers into short glasspacks which exit into
functional Lakes Pipes.
Power is transmitted to the rear end by a T5 manual transmission,
giving you both low gears for cruising and and overdrive for those
highway trips. A rebuilt S10 rear end with new universal joints,
new rear springs, new air shocks-with onboard pump to raise car

has received upgrades as well, from the Volvo 140 steering box, new
tie rod ends, steering linkage upgrade kit, new front coil springs,

generator. The cooling is handled by a Champion aluminum radiator

door has been filled also, with lead as was most other body mods

Studios aka Kenny John who worked for Darryl Starbird for years and
