This 1940 Ford Deluxe tudor sedan instantly announces its something
special with its high-gloss finish. And as you check out all the
details, it reveals a strong stroker motor, upgraded suspension,
four-wheel disc brakes, a comfy A/C interior, and a ton more
quality investments that you want in a vintage machine that has a
ton of modern cruiser appeal.
The black cherry paint sets the tone perfectly for this car. It has
the boldness you love of a red, and there's even a metallic element
to really let it radiate in the sunshine. But the deeper tone also
lets you know this is more sophisticated than you average street
machine. The whole car was part of a frame-off restoration complete
in 2009, and we have $50k in receipts showing the big investment.
There was $10k in work on the paint alone, and when you pay for
quality, it truly lasts. That's why this has such a smooth and deep
luster. Rivaling the paint for shine is a solid investment in all
the best brightwork pieces like the pointed grille, full-length
side trim, curved chrome bumpers, and iconic teardrop headlight
bezels. And while the paint already announced this is an updated
machine, the big 17-inch American Racing Salt Flat wheels sit on a
lowered suspension to give this an awesome stance that can't help
by get your performance heart racing.
We love the little details on this one that pay tribute to its
history. For example, the interior still retains plush button-top
seating that you'd expect from the 1940s. Even the side panels have
been done to match. While the look is vintage, the soft velour
upholstery is a far fresher experience. It's a similar feeling when
you hop into the driver's seat. You still have the original-style
dash. But the upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt column gives
you a clear view to the well-integrated Classic Instruments full
gauge package. This makes for a nice updated driving experience.
And that gets downright comfy when you spot upgrades like the
cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and AM/FM/CD stereo with aux
input to accommodate the most modern music players.
Under the hood is a tidy small block stroker motor. This 383
cubic-inch V8 reflects this car's big investments, and so it's
enhanced and fortified with a SCAT 400 crank, Eagle rods, King main
bearings, Speed Pro pistons, Moly rings, Comp Cams camshaft, and
DART 202 heads. Plus, you have a Holley four-barrel carburetor,
mid-rise intake, and headers adding to this powerful package. It's
supported by the right pieces, including an MSD ignition and an
aluminum radiator with electric fan. While you're checking out all
the hardware on this one, don't forget about the undercarriage
photos. There you'll see more great upgrades, like a strong fully
boxed frame, tubular control arms up front, a four-link rear, and
adjustable coilovers. The three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, and upgraded a four-wheel power disc brakes are all part
of this total package to make it a great anytime driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and build receipts
documenting the full restoration. This is a quality package that's
made to be enjoyed. So if you love power and poise, call today!
