PROFESSIONAL BUILD, ONE-OF-A-KIND CUSTOM, IMMACULATE INSIDE & OUT, AMAZING!

Purists might cringe at the mixed DNA on this radical 1951 Ford custom convertible, but this is truly the way they did it in the old school: if it was cool, there was a place for it on the car. As a result, it neatly blends shapes, trim, and designs from other makes and models, creating an extremely attractive custom that will attract attention simply because someone knew how to do it right.

The list of modifications is extensive, but underneath there's a really clean, solid 1951 Ford ragtop. Of course, it's been sectioned to sit low like that, the hood and door handles have been shaved, the headlights frenched, and all the other custom tricks that have been popular for decades. The side trim is from a 1959 Pontiac, the fender portholes are Buick, and the front bumper is a '55 Chevy piece. Once the layout was confirmed, they tore it down and spent months getting the sheetmetal into shape, then covering it with custom powder blue pearl paint that was just redone about three years ago and looks magnificent. Contrasting white pearl highlights the aforementioned Pontiac trim, as well as the hood scoop that looks right on the vintage Ford hood. A simplified front grille, flush-fitting fender skirts, and '59 Cadillac taillights are other traditional custom tricks that are employed to great effect here, and the net result is a car that looks bigger, sleeker, and far more impressive than any stock Ford you've ever seen. Wow!

They didn't hold back inside, either, where there's a fully custom color-matched interior. Bucket seats flank a custom center console and the door panels wear matching button-tufted upholstery that's period-correct. The steering wheel is a modern billet piece that looks vaguely like a '57 Chevy's wheel, and a complete '53 Olds dash with a quartet of auxiliary gauges low in the console. All the usual upgrades are here, including Vintage Air A/C, power windows, a tilt column, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system hidden in the glove box. The top has obviously been chopped, but this car is a genuine rarity in the custom world, as it has a complete folding convertible top that's fully functional and includes a custom white vinyl boot. There's more button-tufted upholstery in the fully finished trunk, which also carries the CD changer and a full-sized spare.

A Chevy 350 provides motive force, and wears enough chrome to look right under the hood of this amazing custom creation. It's also plenty powerful thanks to an Edelbrock intake and carburetor, MSD ignition system, and a snarky dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers. A big polished aluminum radiator manages the heat and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission swaps the gears. Power steering and brakes were added along with air shocks out back to fine-tune the ride height. The Ford's beefy frame is more than up to the rigors of cruising with this newfound horsepower and thanks to careful component selection, it rides and handles like a modern car, not a 60-year-old antique. Genuine chrome wire wheels and flashy wide whitewall radials complete the 1950s custom look and ride superbly.

This is a knock-your-socks-off custom where you can examine it for days and still not see every trick that went into the build. Surely the star of any show, this Ford ragtop shows you how to do customs right. Call today!
