In 1950 & 1951 the Ford Crestliner was a limited edition two door sedan which was easily distinguished by its vivid contrasting color sweep. In these years the Crestliner came standard with fender skirts, two tone color and a dual bullet grill. This was repeated on the factory padded vinyl top and enhanced with gold anodized emblems.
The 2 tone interior with black carpet and matching door panels enhance the appeal. Also introduced in 1951 was the turn-key ignition. The Crestliner came with only 1 choice for power and that was the 100hp 239 CID V-8 with a 3 speed manual with overdrive. In late1951 Ford introduced the 3 speed Ford-O-Matic as an option.
Only 8703 of this model Crestliners were sold in 1951 since Ford had introduced the Custom Victoria. That model sold over 100,000 units.
This pristine 1951 Ford Crestliner has spent the last 10 years in a climate controlled environment. It has had a complete mechanical inspection and passed with flying colors.
The superb condition of this Ford Crestliner makes it a highly sought after vehicle.
