Ford foursome begs to be taken out


Ford foursome begs to be taken out
Have a look at these Ford Customs, ready to be sold right now in Hershey by RM Sotheby’s. They are all 1951 cars, with the light brown one (‘Penrod Tan’) a Deluxe Victoria, the duo-tone brown one (‘Hawaiian Bronze’) a Deluxe Crestliner, the red one (‘Coral Flame’) and the blue one (‘Culver Blue’) both a Deluxe Convertible.

They are all from the Don Gibson collection and look immaculate. The Custom model was designed by George Walker, although Gordon Buehrig was rumoured to be involved with the coupe version. All of them use Ford’s faithful 100hp flathead V8 under their bonnet. Now, it certainly seems that mister Gibson preferred restoring them over driving them! Mind you: the Victoria coupe covered just 388 miles since having undergone a comprehensive restoration to original condition. The Crestliner hardtop coupe did just 777 miles since it had its major overhaul (comes with optional overdrive, clock, and radio); the red convertible did 2,400 (also with overdrive) and the blue one even just 30 miles (optional heater/defroster, clock, radio, and whitewall tires!). They all scored major points (just under a thousand) at Ford events in Dearborn and were stored in a heated warehouse since. It seems to us that these cars now need someone who likes to take them out…
