Up for sale is my 1951 Ford Victoria 2 door hardtop.

As far as the body/paint, there is a rule in the automotive world, unless you have a body that is super nice or your willing to spend years of your life to making it super nice, you don’t paint a car gloss black, because if your body isn’t super nice you see ever ripple, wave, and flaw. Well as you can see this car is gloss black. Look at the pictures, can you see waves, ripples, and flaws ? or does it look super nice ? It looks super nice. Now granted no matter how careful you are eventually ever car will get a little mark or rock chip, its inevitable, so its not perfect, but its a WOW car.

The body has lots of custom touches, it might have been done recently or quite possibly in the 50’s. The car would fit right in as a mild custom in the 50’s. It has frenched headlights, a stock grill that was customized with running/fog lamps, trim was removed, tailights frenched, etc. It is a well built custom, nothing radical, just things to improve on the already good looks it left the factory with.

The Interior looks good, its the stock seats recovered in a vintage pattern but with cloth instead of vinyl. Why cloth you might ask, have you ever went to a car show on a 90 degree day then at the end of the day gotten in a car with vinyl seats ? If not ask someone that has, it isn’t a fun experience. The door panels are covered in the same black cloth as the seats. Headliner, dash, guages, steering wheel, etc all look nice.

As far as chrome, really the only chrome on the outside of the car is the bumpers. The front bumper looks really good, the rear bumper looks really good as well with one exception. For a while this had stock rear bumper guards on it. Those were removed and a custom license plate bumperguard replaced it. Where the bumper guards were at the chrome is super shiny, all around it the chome is just shiny. So if you installed stock bumper guards they would look great, but without the bumper guards you see some wear.

Engine is a stock flathead v8 with a 3 speed manual and a stock rearend. The engine starts right up and sounds like a flathead should. It runs and drives very nice. Brakes and steering are all stock and work they are supposed to. This is one of those car shows you can cruise with, take to rod runs, etc and not have to worry about breaking down.

I really don’t want to sell this, but I’m losing storage so something has to go. If I don’t sell this here were things I was planning on doing this winter.

1. The passenger vent window needs replacing. I have a new glass, the vent window/glass just needs to be put in.

2. The carpet was showing some wear, I have a brand new carpet kit for it.

3. Lets face it, unless its nice out, old cars sit in the garage. So whenever this gets driven the windows are always down. They haven’t been rolled up in 30 years. Well I just went to roll them up the other day and the regulators don’t work as nicely as they should/fight you when you try to roll them up. I imagine they have possibly corroded a bit or just need some old fashion grease. So this winter the plan was to pull them out and grease them up and get them working like new again.

4. The rear shelf/flat panel behind the rear seat needs a new one. I’ve seen carpet versions, cardboard versions, or some guys upholster them to match the seats.

Like I said before, I really don’t want to sell it, but I don’t have a choice. This is a super deal on a exceptional car. You can’t even come close to build this for my buy it now price.

I would like the pickup paid for within 48 hours after the auction ends. I will only accept cash when you pick it up or a bank wire transfer.

I deal with trucking companies everyday at work. If you need help with transportation let me know.
