  • Where to find parts

    I just purchased a 1951 Ford Deluxe or Sedan or Custom. My point is that with so many names it is difficult to know exactly what the car is. How does one find out?

    Not that familiar with 51 Fords, but the better models had things like chrome around the windows, better upholstery and interior appointments. I suggest you get some books on the 51's. For maintenance, get a shop manual and electrical manual.

      For the most part, trim differences were what separated the less-expensive DeLuxe and the more expensive Custom lines. Chrome trim around the windows and a nameplate on the leading edge of the body-side molding identified Custom models all three years. DeLuxes had side trim, but no nameplate or window chrome, in 1949-’50; they made do without side trim, but with a small nameplate, in 1951.

        Thanks for your inputs. I'm searching for the bumper guards. Very difficult to find. Any ideas?

              Fred does not have many body parts. Great for mechanical parts. Ebay is the best bet. Here is a pair for 49s. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1949-1950-1...aMAAOSwQd5ckq5 Q
