Description for Ford Other 1951

eBay template information@RKMotorsCharlotte. com 5527 Lakeview Road. Charlotte. NC. 28269. US 1951 Ford Convertible Frame Off Built Steel Convertible 305/250 HP V8 TH350 3 Speed PS PB Year: 1951 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: Copper Mileage: 170 Transmission type: 3 Speed Automatic Engine: 305 V8 Interior color: White Vehicle info The 1949 Ford is accredited with singlehandedly saving Ford and being the first modern streamlined design. With the conclusion of World War II. Ford was the first of the big three auto manufacturers to introduce an all new automobile design since civil production was suspended during the war. From 1946-1948 Ford. GM. and Chrysler all updated the existing pre-war models. For Ford. the innovative 1949 design continued through 1951 and was dubbed a "Shoebox Ford" because of the slab side design. One quick glance over this 1951 Ford Convertible and it's easy to see that the restoration team performed a highly detailed job on this shoebox. If you are looking for a weekend warrior that will turn heads at whatever show it attends this summer. then this incredible '51 Ford is the car you have been waiting for. The beneficiary of a frame-off build. this '51 Ford is ready to win awards with a brilliant paint scheme. near bulletproof drivetrain. and a completely custom interior. The extensiveness of the build starts with a gorgeous body that was clearly massaged and worked on by someone who knew what they were doing. Borrowing a color from the Corvette line of colors. the body is covered in Corvette bronze and looks fantastic. The bronze is accented by whitewall tires. brand new chrome throughout the body. a white leather interior. and a white soft top. It starts at the front of the body with a massive front chrome bumper that wraps around the nose and front fenders. Above that is the signature chrome grille which sits just below the front head lights that rest at the front of the fenders. As you make your way down the doors you'll see the build team opted to eliminate any handles and instead installed push button door handles. At the quarter panels they also installed wheel skirts. At the back of the car you'll find dual exhausts exiting out just below the massive rear chrome bumper and just above that the rear taillights that have been hidden in the rear fins. If you were interested in a Ford in 1951. you only had three engine choices. Originally leaving the Dallas. Texas facility with a 100 horsepower 239ci V8. today the '51 is powered by a GM 305ci V8 that pumps out a modest 250hp. The small block is nothing to laugh at as it has been extremely dressed up and is a nice break from all the cars from this particular era being slammed with a small block 350. The builders even went a step further and painted the block in the same Corvette bronze paint as the rest of the vehicle. Also. within the chrome valve covers and air filters they painted stripes of the Corvette bronze within the chrome strips to add to the look. In front of the dressed up engine is a large radiator that. with help from the mechanical fan. is responsible for cooling the small block. At the back of the engine bay is the original cowl tag that features the '51 Ford's serial number. Flip this Ford upside down and glance at the undercarriage and you'll see a load of improvements that make this Ford not only look good but drive like a dream. The builders utilized the '51 Ford X-frame. however for the suspension the builders opted to use an S-10 front and rear suspension. Under the Convertible you will also notice a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission bolted to the 305. Spent gasses travel from the cast iron headers and through the aforementioned dual exhausts that exit out the back of the car. Power disc brakes in the front of the chassis and power drum brakes in the rear are responsible for slowing the vehicle. In front of those brakes are 15" steelie rims with a chrome cover that have a vintage Cadillac logo in the center of the rim. The rims have been wrapped in whitewall rubber. Push the small button on the door to gain entry inside and you'll reveal a white leather interior that is as comfortable as it is luxurious. In front of the driver's bucket seat is a gorgeous Grant three-spoke steering wheel. and beyond that are TPI Tech gauges that give an incredible look to the entire dash. and feature a digital mileage readout that only boasts 61 miles today. Between the two seats is the middle console that has a custom embroidered Ford V8 logo in the center. Above the logo on the dash is the AM/FM/CD player from Pioneer. Behind the front seats is a leather bench seat capable of housing two more of your friends. In the trunk. a large Ford V8 logo has been customized into the white interior to provide a great look. The 1949-1951 Fords were wildly innovative for their time and are still being used today for custom builds. this 1951 Ford convertible is a great example why. The convertible features body styling throughout that we might never see again. has a reliable power plant. and a custom interior that is second to none. If you are ready to win awards. with a car that is at home in a showroom or on the street then this is the car for you. Don't miss your chance to own this amazing 1951 Ford Convertible.
