1951 FORD

For 1951 Ford went through a clean-looking flacelift. The single bullet in the center of the grille was replaced by two...one at each end of the center grille bar. The chrome molding above the center bar was smoothed out to match., i.e., no hump over the center bullet. The interior was upgraded and all instruments were positioned in front of the driver. Finally, Ford offered an automatic transmission...a two speed Ford-O-Matic. And they came out with Ford's first hardtop coupe, the Custom V-8 Victoria. The Custom Victoria proved to be a success, selling over 110,000 its first year. Ford overall sales slipped in 1951, but so did the other major automakers, a reflection of the government's production restrictions.
