Description for Ford Coupe 1951

Lead sleds and customs have always been a part of the hobby landscape, ut this cool little 1951 Ford coupe takes a bit of a different tack than the usual Mercury. It's got a smooth, leek look and a lot of trick fabrication work, ll of which combine to create something totally unique, hich, n this game, s never easy to do.The purple paint is one of those custom mixes that has a very traditional candy look that's exactly right on a car like this. It's the first thing that grabs your attention, nd once you're up close, ou'll notice that there are ghost flames on the nose that are almost too faint to see with the camera lens. Plenty of pearl and metallic in the finish highlights the Ford's many curves and interesting shapes, nd with things like the shaved hood, ustom bumper, nd super flat sides, t really works well. It shows some signs of having been driven, ut they don't detract from the overall look and if you like early '50s customs, his car will definitely bring back memories. Fender skirts, ake pipes, nd cool frenched taillights are additional modifications that offer a nostalgic glimpse into the past. The bumpers have been shaved, ith the front wearing a custom piece that gives it the right substance below the billet grille, hile out back a custom roll pan blends seamlessly into the fenders. Smooth and sleek, his car gets the custom look exactly right.The beautifully stitched interior offers a pair of bucket seats wrapped in matching burgundy and gray upholstery with a very professional look. The chairs are obviously from a late-model, ut were custom stitched to give them an entirely new look. Plush gray carpets and custom door panels with embossed flames add to the very polished look and there's a full bench in back for passengers, aking this a very practical rod. A full set of gauges, ncluding a big Auto Meter speedometer in the Ford's original pod, eep an eye on the warmed-over V8 up front, nd a tilt column with a fat steering wheel looks and feels great. You also get a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo and that wild-looking shifter knob that's attached to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. And in terms of cross-country cruisers, his one is an awesome choice thanks to a giant trunk that's fully upholstered and includes a full-sized spare with its own cover.The engine is a familiar 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, ut a true custom is all about style, ot tire-shredding performance. Chevy's small block is a neat fit in the Ford's engine bay, nd has been dressed up with an Edelbrock air cleaner and matching valve covers, lus some braided stainless hoses. Wiring and plumbing is ultra-sanitary and things like power steering and power front disc brakes are part of the package. Dual glasspack mufflers give it that old school hot rod sound, nice purr on the highway, nd thanks to a fairly tall gear in the 10-bolt rear end, t's a very comfortable cruiser at any speed. The underside isn't designed for car shows and mirrors, ut the hardware is reliable and you can tell it's never been rusty, o don't be afraid to hit the road. The perfect finishing touch are those 205/75/15 wide whitewall radials with what appear to be Cadillac hubcaps.You probably can't get this much custom work finished to this level for less money anywhere else. Given the care that went into the build and the car's capabilities, e have to call this one a heck of a bargain. Call today!
