The 1951 Ford Deluxe coupe is already a very in-demand vehicle, especially when the flathead V8 is paired with a manual transmission. So rarely are you going to find one that's so period correct. The coupe body on these classic Ford's are always a bit more in-demand. They have the great new post-war style that put Ford ahead of the rest, and in the case of the coupe, had great proportions with the long trunk. So with something... so special, it's great to have this example so well-documented. This includes the original buyer's invoice and purchase receipt that verify this was an original and desirable California car. Plus, this one really has extra elegance in its details. Those dual bullet-nose elements leading the way, full-length side trim, and taillights that wrap around the rear: it's all part of a stunning package. You can see it all so well because of a quality of the trim and the high gloss of the light blue paint. The interior is exactly how you want it on an authentic-style classic. The brown and white two-tone has a nice style on the split bench seat and matching door panels. And everything from the rear panel to the dash coordinates. And as you look at the flat floor in the back, you see that this is a business coupe (always a fun distinction.) Plus, the whole interior has a worn-in feeling of authenticity. The atmosphere is truly built for classic motoring as you slip behind the Art Deco steering wheel, gaze at the big round speedometer directly behind it, and grab the column-mounted shifter. The period-correct presentation continues under the hood. The 239 cubic-inch motor is nicely detailed with the correct oil-bath air cleaner and hallmark 90-degree dual pipes diving into the famous flathead V8. But more than just looking vintage, the flathead is a great engine for enjoying classic motoring. The motor fires up with the kind of steadfastness as an old friend, and the three-speed manual transmission lets you control that V8 soundtrack while also giving it a powerful feeling around town. Not only does the sale come with the cool original paperwork, but also maintenance receipts that prove this has been cared for correctly. It's a distinct and iconic Ford that's priced for you to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
