Ford Victoria 1951

General description : 1951 Ford Victoria In the late 40s and early 50s Ford completely redesigned their line of cars releasing what would be famously known as the Shoebox Ford.  This would prove to be an extremely popular model and a big competitor for Chevrolet.  With the advent of the Bel Air, Ford again had to make a change.  Well in 1951 Ford released their response to the Bel Air in the form of a deluxe Victoria model which is exactly what you see here.  Packed with all the luxuries, additional trim, and a different grill these cars were king of their time.  Many years later the popularity was still there with these cars becoming arguably one of the most favored among vintage car builders and customizers.  This very cool 51 Vicky is all Black which is the perfect combination with all that chrome.  The body was completely restored 3 years ago giving the paint a nice fresh appearance.  From front to rear all of the correct Victoria trim is there.  Any experience with restorations will tell you these small pieces can be hard to find and very costly so having them all there is a big plus.  The car came from the factory with a split style front windshield and all of the glass is in good condition.  Rolling down the road the car has a great appearance just as it does sitting still.  Under all four corners you will find original style wheels/hubcaps which have recently been wrapped in new wide white wall tires.   Continuing with the nostalgic theme of the car under the hood you will find the rebuilt but original Flathead V8 motor.  It along with the 3 speed manual transmission are original to the car and have less than 200 miles since completion.  This means the motor is practically new with exception of a few miles to get broken in and address any problems.  Topping off the motor is a nice rebuilt carburetor and old school oil bath air cleaner.    The interior of this classic was completed by LeBaron Bonney who are known for their high quality new but stock appearing interiors.  There is nothing cooler than opening up a 60 year old car to find it looking fresh like it would have from the factory.  The split bench seat is very comfortable and both it and the rear are finished out in a two tone cloth.  The dash of the car has just as stock of an appearance with all of the original style knobs, switches, gauges, etc.  The original speedometer works properly and is circled by the other gauges which work just as well.  In 51 the dashes were greatly improved on by adding a lot more unique trim pieces and lighting to get away from the more subtle plain look found in previous years.  The trunk in the car is solid with no rust and has a nice trunk liner in place for protection.  These cars are only getting more popular so you can bet this original, restored one won't last long.    This very cool nostalgic classic could be yours  for the reduced price of $24,400.00!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
