For Sale: 1951 Ford Victoria in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Featured in Street Rodder magazine 2011.
We have a digital copy of the article. This is a very well built hot rod. The body, paint and interior were done right. Great driver too.

EXTERIOR: The body has had extensive custom work. The front end was cleaned up by removing an abundance of trim. The hood was nosed- removing the trim and the corners were rounded. The headlights and turn signals were frenched. The grill opening was modified and given a Mercury grill. A custom bumper was molded to the body. The door handles were shaved and filled, they open by remote. In back the trunk was decked removing and filling all the trim, it opens remotely. The license plate is recessed, taillights are frenched. The custom bumper was molded to the body. Pearl tangerine is a beautiful color that glows when the light hits it. It shows really well, but if you look for flaws you will find some minor nicks or chips. It also has some subtle hand pin stripe. The stainless moldings down the sides and around the windows have been straightened and polished. The glass has been tinted. Jambs are painted nice, has new weather strips. It currently has painted steel rims on black radial tires and is jacked up in back for a tough guy look.

INTERIOR: The interior is all custom. Genuine leather upholstery on the seats and door panels. V8 is embossed on the door panels, the handles and window cranks were replaced. It has seat belts and a fold down center armrest. The metal inside is painted to match the leather. The trim on the dash is excellent and it looks stock. The knobs, heater controls, AM radio looks great. The a/c is neatly below the dash. There is a discreet Secret Audio stereo, the receiver is under the seat, a 10 disc changer is in the trunk and Bose speakers hiddenout of sight. Carpet, headliner and visors were replaced. The interior lights work. The GM tilt column has a Billet Specialties steering wheel.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The 351 Windsor was rebuilt. Up on top it has an Edelbrock carb with electric choke, Ford electronic ignition system and Cobra finned valve covers. It also has a pair of headers. Features include power steering and power brakes. Very recently it was serviced: new fuel pump, cooling system was flushed. An aluminum radiator with giant electric fan keeps it cool. 8 mm plug wires run neatly. The engine bay is smooth metal painted black.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Boxed and upholstered and has a carpeted floor. It has a radial whitewall tire and black painted rim for a spare. The battery is behind the side panel. Weather strip looks new. There is a remote button to open the door.

UNDERSIDE: It has an original frame, the vin matches the title. Up front is an independent suspension from Fatman Fabrications with coil over shocks and rack & pinion steering. New springs and shocks were just installed. In back the leaf springs and air shocks were replaced. It has a composite fuel tank. The brakes were replaced using Ford components. Disc in front, e-brake cables are hooked up. The dual exhaust has Smithys mufflers. Bottom of the motor is clean. It has a Ford AOD overdrive automatic. Ford 9 inch rear with 3.55 gears.

If you think a Ford should have Ford components, here it is. No Chevy parts on this one! It's a very good car. Roomy, ready to cruise. We have a picture from the magazine when it had different tires and wheels, it changed the look completely. It's tough the way it is, whitewalls and hubcaps will make it nostalgic or big polished wheels will make it modern. This one is priced right for a custom. Heck your paying for the custom body, paint and interior. Everything else is free!
