1951 Ford Custom Deluxe Additional Info:

Showmanship it's often the defining line between a good classic and a great one... and this 1951 Ford Custom Deluxe coupe definitely knows it. With its gleaming modern red paint, custom interior, and flathead V8, it's the perfect mix of original and upgraded that always draws in a crowd.Everyone loves the sleek look of Ford's first post-war design. It was fairly groundbreaking when it appeared, which is why it became the darling of the custom car crowds. And while others have gone as far as to drop them to the ground and add flame jobs, this one goes in a different direction. It draws all eyes on it thanks to the clearcoat shine of a modern red. Of course, another reason why these show so well is all the brightwork that details everything from the dual-bullet grille, to the mirror-like wraparound bumpers, to the long rear trim that forms the taillights. And speaking of trim, everyone loves the full-length bright line that comes on the upper-level Custom model. As you look closer, the details become even more impressive. You'll love watching other people point out great pieces like the fender skirts and the classic Ford emblems. Plus, the way the wheels mix the bright factory covers with the red steel, and the iconic whitewalls makes for a great touch that you'll see again when you open the door.The interior looks like it could win awards all on its own. The custom bench seats look terrific with the pristine white vinyl with red inserts and red piping. And while this looks great, the true investment was making sure the carpeting, side panels, armrests, headliner, dash, and every detail matches this color scheme so well. The cool two-spoke steering wheel with bright trim is pure 1950s space-race cool. In fact, the whole dash stays true to the original, right down to the large speedometer with cool circular readout design.Under the hood is the unmistakable appearance of Ford's iconic flathead V8. And just like the rest of the car, this has been upgraded for showmanship. The red elements like the firewall, wires, and engine block look like they are radiating power against the dark components. Plus, there have been some nice shining elements added like the master cylinder, air grabber, and the flathead's iconic dual bent tubes. And more than just look great, this V8 has been upgraded for power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, and rumbling glasspack-style dual exhaust. Keen eyes will notice the trunk tells you this has a Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission, but actually, this one has been adapted and upgraded to a C4 three-speed for much improved cruising.This kind of quality classic gets all the right attention. And with the kind of attention it has been attracting in our showroom, you'll want to hurry if you want to make it yours. Call now!!
