RealRides of WNY - 1951 Ford Fordor

This 1951 Ford Custom Fordor is, ironically, sporting a number of custom features, including: 1955 Dodge grille inserts, side Lake pipes, dual spotlights (Dummy, or real?), dual eye-level outside mirrors, 1937 DeSoto-style bumpers, fender skirts, Frenched-in headlights, 1983 Cadillac Fleetwood-style wheel covers, and the outside door handles have been removed. And the paint? Well, Ford did offer a Corral Red in 1951, a bright hue which this may or may not be. For 1951, the Ford could be had as a two- or four-door sedan, two-door coupe or business coupe, convertible, Country Squire station wagon, or, eventually, a two-door Victoria (pillarless hardtop) — “convertible smart, sedan snug!” Came across this nice red Fordor a few years ago in Sanborn.
