1951 Ford Custom Coupe Runs and drives showing 65,917 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage with ** NO RESERVE ***! This awesome example of the iconic 1951 Ford Custom Coupe has been in climate controlled storage for the last 25 years after being restored to high level some years ago. No expense was spared during the renovation and it is readily apparent from first glance. The unmistakable sleek look of Ford's first post-war design, it was fairly groundbreaking when it appeared. This is why it became so desired by the custom car crowds. Many of these iconic Shoebox cars have been modified by dropping them to the ground, chopping the tops and adding flame jobs, this one is rare in that it has been restored to original and is ready for its next long term owner. The exterior shows well with good glossy paint that is showing a few nicks and chips from long-term storage that would be easily touched up .The exterior trim appears to be all present with the Custom level trim that details everything from the dual-bullet grille, to the mirror-like wraparound bumpers and the long rear trim that forms the taillights. There are a pair of fender skirts included in the trunk that are still in primer if you want to install them. The interior shows well having been completely restored with new carpeting, side panels, armrests and headliner. The dash appears complete and original as well. The engine compartment shows well with what appears so be a fairly complete and original flathead 6 cylinder engine present. After installing a battery, the engine fired right up after all these years and idles smoothly and quietly. A brief test drives revealed a strong running engine pulling smoothly through the three speed trans, which shifts smoothly through the factory 3 on the tree column shift! Due to our filming schedule we are unable to perform any additional work on this car for you SOLD AS IS/WHERE IS. While this awesome Ford Coupe runs and drives, it will need to be completely serviced prior to any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability.
