1951 Ford Custom DeLuxe 239 V8 Convertible For Sale

West Coast Classics is proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this completely rust free and recently fully restored 1951 Ford Custom DeLuxe 2 Door 6 Passenger Convertible with it's 239 cu in Flathead V8 engine matched to a 3 speed column shift transmission with factory Overdrive and a Power hydraulic soft top. The restoration was reportedly completed some 1400 miles ago when the odometer was set to zero, and the odometer now reads 1,405 miles. The car received an excellent paint job professionally completed in 'Pale Yellow' and the car boasts a completely restored interior with high quality wool carpets, restored metal dashboard, a new canvas soft top and all new stainless trim and body moldings & all new chrome with all new suspension, wiring and mechanics.

The car was nicely factory optioned with original factory options of the car including: 239 CID 2 BBL V8 engine; power hydraulic soft top; 3 speed manual transmission with optional Overdrive ($180); original push button AM radio ($85); Whitewall tires ($25); heater & defroster ($70) & electric clock ($15). The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has had no signs of any accidents - obviously an always garaged and cherished car since new!

After their 1949 revolutionary redesign, Fords received only minor updates for 1950. Ford's facelift for 1951 included a new "dual spinner" grille, larger capacity fuel pump, waterproof ignition system to prevent shorts from moisture and chromed windsplits ahead of twin point tail-lights. Overall quality had already been much improved over the hastily assembled '49's with bodies and frames strengthened, handling upgraded and the V8 engine quieted. The Custom lineup had a revised grille, new steering wheel horn ring, push-button door handles and the gas filler now located behind a hinged flap. Whitewalls, trim rings and ribbed fender skirts were all extra cost options as was the heater & defroster, clock and radio.

It is of note that America's newest and finest automatic transmission and Ford's first, the 3 speed Ford-o-matic transmission was introduced in 1951, with the 3 speed manual with or without Overdrive transmission remaining an option.

This particular fully restored example looks extremely impressive in it's repainted 'Pale Yellow' color paint and the interior is most likely better than when new! ! All the chromework and brightwork has been restored and the original spare wheel with it's jack is in the trunk. The 239 Flathead V8 engine is extremely strong and this particular car drives magnificently - must be driven to be fully appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money!

This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of an obviously always garaged and rust free 1951 Ford Custom DeLuxe convertible in recently fully restored condition throughout! This is one very desirable car for any classic American car enthusiast or Ford collector to add to his collection and a sure-fire investment that's sure to appreciate over the years for any classic American car collector!
