The 1949 Ford was an American automobile produced by Ford. It was
the first all-new automobile design introduced by the Big Three
after World War II, civilian production having been suspended
during the war, and the 1946-1948 models from Ford, GM, and
Chrysler being updates of their pre-war models. Popularly called
the "Shoebox Ford" for its slab-sided, "ponton" design, the 1949
Ford is credited both with saving Ford and ushering in modern
streamlined car design with changes such as integrated fenders and
more. The design would continue through the 1951 model year.
This 1951 Ford Custom four door Sedan comes in a really nice Deep Blue exterior with all chrome pieces surrounding the car that need just a quick buff to have the recognizable shine that comes in the post-war Fords. Also, an updated custom vinyl interior that sets this Ford apart. Powering this Custom is the very reliable and well known bigger for the years this car was manufactured 3.9L Ford Flathead V8. This engine fires up with the new to '51 "turn-key" ignition and this is accompanied with the easy shifting 3-speed manual transmission. This is a great everyday car that can take you anywhere and everywhere "easy like Sunday morning".
