103 HP, 230 cid, L-Head In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission VIN: 37149919 Nothing could have been much more fun that driving a little convertible coupe in the early 1950's and this Dodge Wayfarer would have fit the bill perfectly. When this series had been introduced the previous season, the open car was a true roadster in that it had no roll-up windows in the doors. While this might have been a sporty touch for the hearty motorists, Americans were a bit more comfort conscious, so the 1951 edition did have real glass windows that helped to keep the elements at bay. Base price for this car was $1,884, which was a few dollars less that the entry-level 2-door sedan. Still, just 1,002 of these Sportabouts were produced for the 1951 model year making it the most rare model by production. This example appears to be a mostly original car finished in its original Sea Mist Green with complimenting burgundy heavy-duty vinyl for the seats and tan fabric to the top. As with all Dodge passenger cars this season it has full instrumentation plus optional push button radio and a heater-defroster unit. Under the hood is complete but is basically unrestored. With so few of these cars produced, it is a rare opportunity to find one for sale anywhere in the world. Before the world of compacts, this was economy motoring in its day and is sure to be smile winner of motoring today.
