1951 Ford Custom Convertible

Model Year History Overview:
Though these early years of the 1950s Ford Motor Company experienced a revival, moving ahead of Chrysler into the number two spot. The reason? Interesting cars that sold well. Styling was high and wide compared to arc-rival Chevrolet, but was better than Plymouth’s.  The line was divided between DeLuxes and Customs, sixes and V-8s, sedans and coupes, Custom wagons, and the Custom V-8 convertible.  1951 saw a continuation of the limited-edition V-8 Crestliner distinguished by a vivid contrasting color sweep on its sides and a padded vinyl top.  The series was canceled in ’52 after the Victoria appeared in the ’51 Custom V-8 series.
