There aren’t many things made today that are designed to last 20 years, much less 30, 40 or even 50 years. That wasn’t always the case.
Once upon a time, American-made products were crafted to last multiple generations rather than just multiple years. This 1951 Ford Custom Sedan is a gorgeous example. According to its classifieds listing, the ’51 Ford has lasted 61 years with everything but the paint being original. The spare tire is even original.
Ford knew what it was talking about in 1951 when it released this commercial for the Custom:
Even after such a long time, it still “runs and rides like [a] new car.” If true, how could you pass up on buying this beauty and taking her home with you.
This 1951 Ford Custom is listed at $25,750, do you think it’s a good deal or is it just due to break down?
