Don Kilby's 1951 Ford
1951 Ford Victoria owned and restyled by Don Kilby of Kensington, Maryland. While Kilby owned the car, it was featured in Customs Illustrated September 1963, and it became known as the "Slick Vic." Back then, it featured a 5 inch sectioned body. The car changed hands, and in 1977 West Coast Kustoms President Rich Pichette purchased the car. By then the old East Coast Custom had been chopped 4 inches by Dick Dean at Barris Kustoms. Around 1981 Doug Hall bought the car from Pichette.
In October of 2020 the Slick Vic was owned by Dave Pareso of Fountain, Colorado. Dave advertised the car for sale on Facebook, asking USD $30,000 for the old custom. Click here to check out Dave's Facebook ad.
