1951 Ford Deluxe
Why This Car Is Special
This is a real police car from the 1950s that has been used as a show car ever since. It was used by the Shriners in the late 70s and has retained the lights and sirens for show purposes.
Mechanically this Ford is far from stock, as it has been fitted with a 351 Windsor running to a C4 automatic transmission that is shifted on the column with a custom driveshaft to get all that power to the rear end. This car will flat move! It has been converted to a 12-volt system and the lights and sirens still function, which is great for car shows and events. This car runs, drives, stops and steers like it should and is ready to cruise and enjoy.
The interior is very cool and still features the spotlights and CB radio. The dash is a work of art on 1951 Fords with perforated aluminum on the dash and steering wheel. This interior makes you feel like you could be chasing down the Duke boys, with spare bullets on the dash, lights and sirens just a flip of a switch away and V8 power under the hood. Throw your prisoners in the back seat and head on off to any car show, and you are sure to be the talk of the town in this very special old Ford.
The brown and Beige paint scheme has been topped off with Lonesome Dove Texas Sherriff markings. Dual spotlights up front and dual chrome exhaust tips out back make this Deluxe look cool, and sound even cooler. The grill has built in red flashing lights that match the light/siren combination mounted to the roof. Everywhere you look on this car is some other feature to appreciate. The factory trim with the subtle “Custom” text and the vintage style Ford V8 emblems on the fenders are great touches.
How often do you come across a real 1950s police car? This car is hard to find and is sure to be the toast of any car show it attends. Why not have it be you behind the wheel?
