53 Years Owned: 1951 Ford Custom Convertible

This next advertisement is remarkable. The car is a cool old beast, but the seller is the story. Here we’ve got a ’51 Ford that has been owned by the same dude since 1968. I can’t imagine selling a car that I’d owned for 53 years, but this guy signed up for an ebay account (his user name is new since June 2021, and I reverse image searched the pics and it doesn’t appear to be a scammer) and posted a car with decent photos and he (or she) is in his (or her) 70s (or 80s). I don’t want to be accused of being ageist — but as someone with parents and in-laws in their 70s/80s, I find that remarkable. The car is pretty cool too.
