1951 Kaiser Frazer Henry J

The Kaiser Frazer Henry J was a compact car produced by the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation from 1950 to 1954. This was the company’s first attempt at creating an economy car that could compete with the popular Chevrolet and Ford models of the time.

The Henry J was named after Henry J. Kaiser, the co-founder of the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation. It was designed to be an affordable car for the average American family, with a small body, minimal features, and a relatively low price point. It was marketed as a “compact economy” car, with a focus on gas mileage and practicality.

The 1951 model year saw the introduction of several updates to the Henry J lineup, including a redesigned grille and taillights. The engine options for the Henry J included a 68-horsepower four-cylinder engine, as well as a 72-horsepower six-cylinder engine.

Despite its affordable price point and practicality, the Henry J was not a sales success for the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation. In its four years of production, only around 103,000 units were sold. The company ultimately ceased production of the Henry J in 1954, focusing instead on larger, more expensive models. Today, the Henry J is considered a classic car and is sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
