Presenting a timeless classic, a 1951 Ford Tudor, resplendent in Fernmist green with beige patterned cloth upholstery. This Shoebox Ford retains much of its originality, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive history. Under the hood, it boasts a professionally rebuilt 239 cu-in flathead 8 engine, paired with a three-on-the-tree manual transmission—a true vintage driving experience. Remarkably, this Ford still operates on a 6-volt system and fires up beautifully, showcasing the enduring reliability of its era.
Recent enhancements include newer radial tires mounted on paint-matched steel wheels, complemented by chrome hub caps and SS trim rings. The flathead engine's restoration was entrusted to the experts at Prostock Edmonton, ensuring it performs at its best.
Stepping inside, you'll be greeted by the distinctive two-spoke steering wheel facing a 100-mph speedometer. The instrument panel provides essential readouts for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and battery voltage. While the five-digit odometer displays 66k miles, the true mileage remains unknown, adding to the mystique of this classic.
The history of this vehicle includes a transition from the original owner to a friend, who later passed it on to the current owner. While it has undergone a repaint at some point in its life, it retains much of its original charm and character. Notably, this classic has been preserved in mostly original condition, with the addition of new tires and professional rebuilding of the flathead engine, including the installation of Fenton headers.
Mechanically, this Ford is sound, with no known issues or imminent wear items requiring replacement. However, it is worth mentioning that the passenger side windshield has a crack, and a rock chip is present on the passenger side glass. The body exhibits minor imperfections, adding to its authentic vintage appeal.
Recent service includes an oil change, while the like-new tires were installed in 2022. The sale also includes a treasure trove of spare parts, enhancing the value of this offering.
Don't miss the opportunity to own this mostly original 1951 Ford Tudor, a well-preserved piece of automotive history that delivers an authentic vintage driving experience.
