This customized 1951 Ford Custom Deluxe Coupe was part of a prestigious collection in Louisiana. Often referred to as the "Shoebox", this example is powered by a lively Flathead Mercury V8 with Twin Stromberg Carburetors, aluminum Edelbrock heads, aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold and Fenton headers. This period correct engine is backed by a Ford 3 speed manual transmission with Overdrive. It is controlled by a Hurst floor shifter and garnished with a Billiard ball shift knob. The engine just received a full fluid service and the carburetors have been freshly rebuilt and balanced. The Transmission has also had a fluid service and the clutch, pressure plate and throughout bearing have just been replaced.

The drum brakes have just been serviced with new shoes along with the fluid flushed. The car stops straight and true. The shock absorbers have just been replaced and the car rides on a new set of 15" low profile radial tires. The suspension has been lowered 2" and rides wonderfully.

The body is painted in bright red and has had the door handles shaved and replaced with electric, remote door poppers. The headlights and taillights have been frenched in the traditional style of the period. The grill has been customized with elements from a 1954 Pontiac and 2 faux spotlights adorn the A pillars. The interior features Cadillac bench seats with soft leather surfaces and seatbelts. The factory instruments remain and are all functional. The interior also features the factory Magic Air heater. The truck in trimmed in matching upholstery and looks great.

This wonderful customized 1951 Ford will take you back to the time you remember so fondly. It is well sorted and a joy to drive and cruise in.
