Car description

Some hot rods were built by guys who simply get it. They're more than just a bunch of parts from a catalog, hey're cars that respect the vintage iron and the period in which they were built. This awesome 1940 Ford tudor sedan is such a car. Sure, t packs a sweet-running 350 under the hood and a gorgeous paint job, ut it's the details that will blow you away.Preserving the original design's integrity was obviously top on the builder's list, nd all the wonderful details that Ford added to the car remain beautifully intact. The body has been restored to show standards, nd is far straighter and smoother than anything coming out of a mass-production factory could possibly be. The paint is single-stage PPG Vineyard Green that shine under the lights and outside, et it's also subtle and restrained without any flashy graphics to get in the way. Panel fit is exemplary, nd it's awesome to see that they even kept the running boards in place. The Deluxe models used a updated version of 1939's pointed grille that has become one of the most enduring looks in hot rodding, nd it's hard to imagine anything more handsome on the front of this green tudor. All the stainless trim has been polished to show standards, he glass is new and there isn't a single aspect of this car that hasn't been polished, uffed, nd tweaked to a very high level. The salute to detail continues inside with a beautifully crafted interior that perfectly blends old and new in high fashion. The upholstery is caramel leather, titched in patterns that are pure Art Deco sophistication. Subtlety is the key, ut this is an interior that invites you in and convinces you to stay, nd you could happily spend many thousands of miles behind the wheel. Ford's original uncluttered dash design remains intact, ight down to the plain glove box door, nd the instruments are very vintage-looking thanks to the guys at Red Line Gauge Works. Even the steering wheel is the original unit slightly modified for use here, omplete with a tilt steering column. Hidden behind the chrome speaker grille are the controls for the A/C and the power windows are actuated by switches using the original window cranks. The back seat is finished to the same high standards and the carpets are bound with matching caramel leather for a very upscale look. In back, he trunk is finished for utility and offers a space-saver spare, ust in case.Built with reliability in mind, his Ford packs a 350 cubic inch Chevy crate motor. It's smooth, owerful, nd easy to maintain, hanks to a 4-barrel carb, delbrock Air Gap intake manifold, nd electronic ignition. Up top, mid-50s Cadillac air cleaner and finned valve covers are fitted, ll of which have been painted green to match the bodywork. There's a minimum of chrome, o it still has a vintage look, lthough the billet accessory drive is a thing of beauty. Underneath, here are disc brakes up front, 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission for easy cruising, nd a 9-inch rear full of 3.70 gears, ll neatly engineered to work without a fuss. The cool painted steel wheels with hubcaps and trim rings and wearing vintage 15-inch whitewall radials are a brilliant touch, oo!There's not one part on this whole car that wasn't carefully planned and finished to an incredibly high standard, nd the workmanship makes the price look like a screaming bargain. If that's something you appreciate, his is your Ford. Call today!
