Description:

1951 Ford Other

This is an original MI sportster which originated from the 1951 mechanix illustrated November issue.
This car was built according the MI plans and is all hand built during the 1950's. This car was started in 1952 by the original owner and completed 3 years later. This article boasted plans for the builder to create a 100MPH roadster for less than $500!!!!
By taking parts from 1930's & 1940's cars the builder could build one fast sportster!! Car is in great shape for its year and being hand built. Has an amazing running flathead ford v8!!
This car is one of only 11 known to be in existance from the total of 14 that were built. This car is a 1951 MI Sportster. Due to the fact the plans call for parts from the 30's and 40's it is registered and cleared as a 1941 Ford.
The car is complete, omes with extra set of heads I got with it, long with all the documentation of the original Mechanix Illustrated issue along with build plans as they came.
This car was handmade, nd is certainly a conversation piece. This cars original owner built the car over 3 years building each part by hand thus it shows it. I bought it a while back from the 3rd owner who got it back up on the road and running.
I am selling the car due to the fact I have only drove it 2 times and havent since last year due to health issues and costs I need to sell this wonderful piece of history.
Car runs and drives great. I put a newer battery in it, nd it gets started and ran once a month. Car is in a heated and a/c storage.
Has new windshield that was made for the car that just needs to be installed.
