1936 FORD TUDOR SLANT RESTO-ROD
The 1936 Ford was finely redesigned from 1935 models. Changes included a broad v-shaped grille composed of vertical chrome elements, redesigned rear fenders, pressed steel artillery-style wheels, and the DeLuxe model incorporated twin horns recessed behind grilles set in the fender catwalks. The 36 Ford has come to be regarded as one of the High Points of Fords Thirties styling, handsomely shaped, streamlined, and gracefully proportioned. It was the most fluid of all Ford designs to date and became a singing siren to hot rodders seeking a fresh palette.
In the early years, modifying stock Dearborn cars into street rods was an intensely personal hobby. There were no professional builders or parts makers with catalogs to order from. Talented individuals, with startlingly high skills, often built the cars, and their craftsmanship was revealed by the result. Most were backyard creations that were constructed by young men with more enthusiasm than talent or money. The results reflected this state of affair.
As one of most uncommon vintage hot rods to be found, this Stunning Tudor 183 Slant Back is among the most desirable of all pre-war Fords. A sheep in wolfs clothing, its elegant form is the perfect camouflage for the Old School hot rodding delights that lurk beneath the hood.
This hot rod is a true Old School build that displays the most pleasing external patina. The ebony paint with perfectly accentuating red pin stripe appears to be original as does the complementing tan interior upholstery. This Southern Estate Classic underwent a recent $39,000 Ground Up Restoration including Exterior, Interior, Chrome, and Mechanics.
The body and associated panels are all true original steel components, and the car remains largely very stock except for under the hood. The motor is a wonderful rebuilt 1947 Ford block. It has been significantly upgraded with a set of Edelbrock Flatheads and Intake with new (NOS) dual vintage Edelbrock 4 carburetors. A 39 Ford transmission has been added along with upgraded High Speed gears in the rear.
The attention to detail and preservation is evident throughout this car. Its appearance is not something that can be duplicated using modern technology or sage techniques. Enough cannot be said about the pride of owning a preserved timepiece that has encapsulated a period of time that can never be returned to. Like a fine work of art, this 1936 Tudor Slant stands alone in a world of imitators and wannabes. It is a great car that would be fitting in any enthusiasts garage.
