I have owned two 51 tudors in the past but never thought I would have a convertible until this came for sale this past June. I came in from working on the garage, washed up and figured I would check out the local classifieds. I was not planning on buying another car but just looking can be very dangerous. Well on the first page I see an ad for a 51 vert that is in a thousand pieces. The car looks very solid and there are pics of an abundance of new or restored parts. I send the guy an email and it turns out the car is up the street from me in a nice dry garage and it's been that way since 1999. The owner had passed and his family were ready to sell it. A deal was stuck and it came home in several trailer loads. I could not believe this car had been right under my nose all these years. Here are some picks of the car in the state I found it.
