Special:
– It was designed by George Walter, commonly known as the "Cellini of Chrome".
– These convertibles featured the top trim level for Ford, including chrome window trim, chrome horn ring, two sun visors, armrests on all doors and chrome strips along the lower half of the body.
– Needless to say, there was chrome at nearly every available location ☺☺!
– They have a special steering wheel and full wheel covers.
– The ’51 model became two smaller spinners on the horizontal bar of the grill i.s.o. a single large spinner and the instrument panel was completely redesigned (all instruments grouped in front of the driver).
– The three-speed manual transmission (standard) could be supplied with a "Touch-O-Matic" (an automatic overdrive), which saved a lot of fuel, while a two-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission was optional.
– In the former car magazines it was called "one of the most well-proportioned cars ever to come off the Dearborn assembly lines".
