Authentic, sleek, and classic flathead V8 power - people are going
to take their time appreciating this 1940 Ford Tudor Deluxe Sedan,
because it has been given the right mix of preservation and
While this year's car is a big draw in the custom car community,
you can instantly see that someone has gone to great care to go in
the period-correct direction. The great gloss of the black paint
highlights the iconic curves of the 1940 Ford. And all the
brightwork that make these such a star is still in place. The
bumpers shine well; the grille has a powerful Art Deco V-shape; and
the trim runs like a powerful line from the tip of the hood all the
way until it follows the curve of the rear fender. It's all
finished off with the proper whitewall tires and two-piece Ford
Deluxe wheel covers.
The tan interior is even more about the classic experience than the
exterior. After all, the upholstery may be the actual original
cloth, especially with the front seatbacks preserved in plastic.
You have all the cool classic details, like the ribbed pattern in
the upholstery that coordinates nicely with the door panels. The
dual-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives
you a clear view at the stylish dash panel with correct Deluxe
gauges. Almost everything has the feel of originality, right down
to the window cranks, but there are also the right subtle
investments - like the fresher weatherstripping - that make sure
the vintage feeling doesn't sacrifice overall quality.
When you open the hood, you'll find a correct-style Flathead V8.
The oil bath air cleaner, tall carb, dual hoses, and all those
bolts on the namesake flat head really keep up this 1940s feeling.
But you can also see this was upgraded to an alternator for better
overall driving. And this classic was really meant to cruise. The
motor runs strong; the three-speed manual transmission shifts
smoothly; and there a solid feel to the suspension/drivetrain
components gives this one added confidence on the road.
This has a true vintage flair that's perfect for nostalgia or the
solid base you need for a show-stopping build. So if you truly
appreciate classic motoring, call today!
