Description

One Of A Kind Car NO TRADES Selling my chopped 1951 Ford. The car is rock solid and came out of the San Diego area. The chop was
done there. The car is shaved and Frenched with bubble tail lights. It’s bagged all around and will lay flat
on the ground. It was at Autorama Exteme in Detroit a few years ago and won Lowest Car. The car has a
new interior done in cream and black with the original front seat and a T Bird rear seat that has been
sectioned. No headliner. The dash is chromed and pinstriped. It has a stock radio in the dash and an iPod
ready am/fm CD radio in the glove box with an external amp hidden away. It uses 4 speakers. SW volt,
gas, oil and temp gauges. The gas pedal is the original pedal from Al Bergler’s 1973 Vega Motown Shaker
funny car trash picked in his shop by me. The trunk has been partially finished and has the battery, gas
tank with working sending unit, master kill switch and air compressor kill switch and remote cable trunk
release. The fresh transmission is the first year Turbo 400 that bolts directly to the 1959 Cadillac 390
with the factory spacer plate. The Cadillac motor is .030 over, new pistons, conditioned original rods and
crank, new bearings and rings. Solid lifter cam with Studebaker adjustable rocker arms. New pushrods
and lifters. Water pump is chrome and has been machined to use the modern bearing and seal. New
timing chain and gears. Joe Hunt electronic distributor. The heads use Chevy 1.94 intake and Chevy
exhaust valves with hardened seats, bronze guides and the good seals. New BB Chevy valve springs.
Handmade vintage covers with blisters to clear the rockers. Weiand Drag Star 6x2 intake with 6 vintage
chromed Stromberg 97’s with all new everything and Vintage Speed adjustable jets on the primary
carbs. Eelco progressive linkage. The motor won the Real Mill award at the Sins of Steel show a few
years ago. Most of the chrome on the motor is an attic find. For the chrome headers I used flanges that
were still in the box from San Diego steel products and had 1959 newspaper wrapped around them. Al
Bergler did the install of the motor and trans at his shop and also made the inner fender panels and
louvered panels on the core support. Firewall has a fresh coat of cream paint and all the front
suspension and panels were powder coated black at QC Coatings. It uses a stock rear end that was gone
through at The Ring & Pinion Shop here in town and has the manual stock Ford drum brakes. Front
suspension uses Fat Man spindles and sway bar and the stock control arms were all modified to
maintain the camber. I’ve owned the car for several years and drove it with the Chevy that was in it and
a couple years ago swapped that out for the Caddy and Turbo 400. The car starts right up and is easy to
drive. I’ll include a bunch of extra window trim and vent windows in case you want to take it that
direction. It also comes with the cut out hood with chromes hinges but I prefer to leave it off. The motor
runs at 180 all day long and will only get warm waiting in lines at shows or stuck in traffic so it has an electric fan on seperate switch along with stock chrome fan.
