1951 Ford Custom

1951 Ford Custom

Here is my 1951 Ford Custom with a Fordomatic transmission. I purchased the car in July of 2018.

It has a ’53 Mercury rebuilt engine, It has been converted to a 12 volt electrical system and now has a Pertronix electronic ignition, it also is equipped with electric fuel pump, dual exhaust and Vintage Air.

I get a lot of compliments and it drives pretty well for being over sixty years old.

    My first car was a '51 Custom Flathead V8 with automatic trans. I rebuilt the motor and and painted it metalic blue. Mom made red seatcovers. That was in 1960 when I was 15 and had my license.

    Smooth ride, just like thunder road.

    Any problem with installation or operation of the Pertronix ignition system? I am restoring a ‘51 Victoria with the automatic trans. I plan to convert to 12 volt and considering electronic ignition.
