This 1929 Ford Tudor streetrod is a steel body sedan, but you can
instantly see this is far more than a classic cruiser. With a
vibrant paint, a custom/comfy air conditioned interior, and a
dual-quad V8 under the hood, this is a very cool street machine
that has been given the right attention in the build to make sure
others pay attention everywhere it arrives.
The tudor sedan had the unmistakable look that reminds us of the
dawn of America on wheels. But this one instantly announces it's
made for more modern driving. The House of Kolors Trueblue Pearl
was an update in the 2000s, and so this has a far more modern
finish. So it likes to radiate off the curves of the body. And
speaking of the curves, while the body is steel, the fenders are
fiberglass. It makes for a great way to let this classic style also
fit the modern and wider 15-inch wheels. There's a level of detail
here that impresses. For example, a classic Ford will have louvers
in the side of the hood, but a speed machine like this also puts
them in the front panel, rockers, and windshield visor. The
well-done gray pinstriping has the Ford V8 logo in the rear, and it
all matches the interior. Front nerf bars, upgraded headlights, hot
rod side mirrors, wide dual exhaust tips, and much more all come
together for an aggressive and thoughtful total package.
The interior takes the best parts of the Ford design and updates it
for modern comfort. So the tall upright body still provides the
same superior headroom that people were enjoying over 90 years ago.
But now upgrades like those cloth high-back bucket seats up front
provide all-day comfort. You've also got great modern additions
like an AM/FM stereo mounted in the headliner, power windows, and
cold-blowing air conditioning. And we rarely see a sunroof in cars
like this. There's some nice speedy style from the flame pattern on
the carpeting and door panels. But the real performance pieces come
from the sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, upgraded
pedals, and a dash full of crisp VDO gauges.
This bright blue Ford has proper blue oval power under the hood.
The 302 cubic-inch motor looks tidy and ready for show off with
plenty of polished components like the Ford valve covers,
alternator, air grabber, and much more. Plus, this was built for
power with Weiand tunnel ram intake and dual Holley four-barrel
carburetors on top. There's even a nice set of headers feeding the
dual exhaust. This has all the right upgrades underneath, like an
independent front end, custom rear w/coilovers, and a Ford 9-inch
rear diff. And it was built for driving with a three-speed
automatic transmission, power brakes, and rack & pinion
This is the strong-running street machine done with a ton of
appeal. So if you love a custom build, don't miss this Model A.
