This is one of the finest 51 Fords we have seen. You can see the exceptional condition this car is in no matter where you look. The interior is unbelievable. It's like stepping back to 1951. Original miles? We can't say yes for sure, but who knows? If this car has been in the hands of collectors and V-8 enthusiasts, it could be.
The radio and other dash gauges are all in perfect working condition and work just as they are intended to do. The headliner is as nice as it was over 60 years ago. The hood ornament and emblems throughout this car are beautiful. They just don't make them with individuality anymore.
