The 1951 Ford Victoria is a special vehicle that delivers a cool-cruising hardtop with premium details. So it’s great to find one that was restored with an eye to make sure you can showcase its distinct vintage style, right down to the flathead V8 power.
The ’49 Ford may have been the company’s new design for post-war America, but the evolution to the ’51 Victoria was the real symbol that a new era had begun. It was an upper-level model on the Custom Deluxe trim line that now gave you a pillar-less hardtop coupe style. Plus, details like the wraparound rear glass, rear fender skirts, and awesome tail light trim set the new Victoria apart on the boulevards. And because this car was so distinct, we really like how it is presented today. The restoration on this one is a bit older, but you can tell it has been treated with care. The result is nice-looking body lines and a great glow from the metallic brown paint, but there are also the right hints of patina. So some people may just assume you have one of the best barn finds around (and you don’t have to pay us extra to keep your secret.) And everything from the roof done in a distinctive tan to the color-matched wheel with factory hubcaps is pure vintage cool.
The interior gets the style right for a driver’s classic. It’s a detail lover’s coupe with the two-piece windshield, textured steel dash, classic dual-spoke steering wheel, and even the AM radio is still there for a display. And just like the exterior, there are the right hints of patina. But this Ford also knows how to be a proper cruiser. The door panels, carpets, and upholstery with comfy cloth inserts all feel much fresher and newer so that going for a drive feels quite inviting.
It’s easy to recognize Ford’s 239 cubic-inch Flathead V8, and this one really displays it to fit this car perfectly. It’s clean, complete, and boldly done in green, but there’s the right hint of age to make sure everyone recognizes it’s a respected classic. And in fact, the way this one fires up easily and runs strong reaffirms its respected care. This one loves to feel like a vintage cruiser on the road, including the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission that gives you full control. But there are a few of the right upgrades you want, like newer cruising tires and a true dual exhaust.
This is a landmark Ford that is presented with all the vintage style and esteem it deserves. So you know it makes for an irresistible hardtop classic, especially at this affordable price. Call today!
