After the Second World War, Ford found itself with mounting debt as the new Ford cost the company $72 million in investment and 10 million man-hours. However, by the close of 1949, the new model had earned the company $177 million in profit and had outsold Chevrolet by 100,000 vehicles. In the first three days of its announcement, a record 28.2 million people visited Ford dealer showrooms to check out the new model.

The 1950 Ford models had a similar appearance to the 1949 Fords, but received over 50 improvements that year. Minor changes included a new hood ornament, button door handles, recessed filler cap, a three-blade radiator fan, a Ford crest to replace the block Ford letters, more durable seat foam, lower parking lights in wraparound chrome housings, and better-quality fabrics.

For 1951, all Ford convertibles were powered by the 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 fitted with a Holley two-barrel carburetor and offering 100 horsepower. The engine, too, had been improved with the help of a new composite timing gear, revised pistons, a new crankshaft, and the fitting of rubber O-ring seals.

This example presents an opportunity not to be missed. Finished in raven black with a black convertible top on a very straight body. The interior presents as nicely as the shiny raven black exterior. It’s a one family owned vehicle with 52,836 Actual Miles. The interior is all original and looks great.

The ‘51 has a rebuilt, correct V8 engine and a Ford-O-Matic transmission. It has many options and accessories including a factory AM radio, a Magic Air heater, and rocker moldings.

This ’51 is one of the nicest on the market and is a pleasure to drive, and with a very high book value it’s sure that the car will go up in value. Take it out for a Sunday drive or to a Cruise-in and you will be turning heads.
