The 1949-1951 Ford and Mercury coupes have long been a hot rodding cult classic and the choice of builders everywhere. The classic styling coupled with the Chevy 350 small block made for a perfect lead sled back in the day, and make for a perfect retro lead sled now. With no end to the creations possible with a classic Ford coupe, these cars are sure to be fan favorites for years to come! This particular 1951 Ford Coupe for sale is just about everything you could want in an old school cruiser.
This 1950 Ford retains much of its original styling while simultaneously carrying a hint of hot rod everywhere it goes. The top hasn't been chopped, nor has the body been otherwise drastically altered, so perhaps this is what helps it retain a slight air of originality while showing off as a custom cruiser. The paint is a gorgeous metallic red that oozes class and shows well under any lighting as a $10,000 paint job of this caliber should. The subtle ""Kustom"" side stripes really help give it that lead sled aura, while also appearing as chrome moldings at a distance. The color-matched wheels and white walls subtly spice things up. Though it isn't one of those ""in your face"" customs, this Ford is sure to draw a crowd just about anywhere you go! The body is clean and straight under that gorgeous paint job, and the Frenched lights are a hot rod ""must have.""
Thought the exterior was gorgeous? Well, it is, but wait until you step inside! The gorgeous white and parchment custom interior was installed to the tune of $6,000, and looks just like a show-quality custom interior should. The seats are covered in vinyl while any painted surfaces have been made to match the exterior paint. All of the chrome pieces add just the right amount of contrast to tie everything together! Truly, the interior of this car is as stunning as the exterior and simply will not disappoint. All of the details have been addressed, and all components are showing very minimal wear.
Under the hood sits a hot rod legend, a Chevrolet 350 V8! This appears to be a crate motor that has been done up with minor upgrades inside and out. A 4-barrel carburetor and aluminum Edelbrock intake have been added, and there are assorted chrome accents throughout. This car runs great and sounds great too; it gets great smiles-per-gallon! The engine bay is clean and tidy and continues to reflect the quality of the build this car received. The 350 is mated to a Chevrolet 3-speed manual transmission. To top it off, everything has been converted to 12 volt for ease of maintenance and drivability.
If this old Ford hasn't already impressed you, you may just have to come take a look at it in person to believe the quality. It is a nicely built ""Shoebox Ford"" that isn't over the top, but has been done up to the nines! This puppy is ready to cruise, and will be a crowd-pleaser at any event.
