1951 Ford Other CoupeThis 1951 Ford Custom Coupe is that perfect mix of vintage appeal with extra flair added in. So if you love upgraded V8 power and a head-turning personality, then this is the cool classic you need to read all about.
The '51 Ford has always been a popular one with the custom car scene because it really represents the first piece of automotive optimism after WWII. But to get it this right takes someone with an eye for detail. It starts with the desirable coupe body. These have the long trunk and symmetrical profile that loves some super smooth details. That's why they expertly eliminated the badging, moved the trunk hinges, and frenched the headlights and taillights. Even the full-length side trim is now actually painted on for a true smooth and Kustom finish. Of course, the metallic burgundy paint gives this the kind of added radiance that really gets the coupe noticed. And no 1950s-style custom is complete without a shining Mercury grille. But as custom/cool as this look, it still retains its vintage flair in the right places. Big chrome bumpers and two-piece wheel trim with whitewalls are all part of that ideal classic look.
The interior was upgraded to a supple leather. It looks terrific while still respecting the Ford's vintage roots. For example, the two-tone tan upholstery on the both rows of seats is exceptionally clean and comfortable, but it still follows a classic-style pattern. This is repeated on the door panels for a great uniform feeling. Plus, with the exterior burgundy returning on the meal elements - like the dash and door tops - this has the overall feeling of a thoughtful custom. There are nice classic details, like the vintage steering wheel that's now color-matched to the car, and the AM radio is still on display. These are joined by worthwhile upgrades, like the auxiliary gauges and a cool floor shifter.
The smooth inner walls of the engine bay look terrific on this custom, and in the middle is a healthy upgrade in V8 power. This 350 cubic-inch crate motor has the polished valve covers, matching air topper, and overall tidy look of a car you want to show off. Plus, there are the right power upgrades, too, with an Edelbrock intake and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It's a strong running motor with the kind of extra power you're going to love. It even makes the right tune out of the dual exhaust. Best of all, you're fully in control of it all thanks to the three-speed manual transmission.
This is the shoebox Ford coupe that has been given all the right love and flair. So if you like a complete custom cruiser, don't let this one slip away. Call now!
