This 1951 Ford Custom 2 Door Convertible is a great example of the 1951 "Shoebox" Ford convertible that looks as good as it drives. The original 239 Cubic Inch Ford Flathead engine has been detailed with chrome accents and features some nice performance upgrades. This '51 Ford has a dual 2-barrel carburetors (2 x 2 bbl) set up that works great along with a set of Aluminum H.P. heads and dual exhaust. 1951 was the first year for the Ford-O-Matic Transmission and this particular Shoebox Ford has a Ford-O-Matic Automatic Transmission, an $159 option at the time. The tan canvas convertible top is in great shape and with the top down, the matching tan boot snaps into place giving the car its great open look. This Shoebox Ford is finished in a beautiful dark blue paint that is in wonderful condition. With the wide whitewall radials and correct Ford script hubcaps and beauty ring this car runs out well. The interior on this classic Ford is in nice shape as well. The tan leather bench seat interior shows very well and is comfortable for anyone to drive or ride. The dash and steering wheel appear to be stock and are in very nice shape as well. Original instrumentation and radio makes this Shoebox Ford a true 50's car. This is a true American classic that will look great in anyone's driveway or car collection.
