For Sale: 1940 Ford Tudor in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1940 Ford Tudor has a great classic style, and if you pick up on the little details, you'll also discover that it has a hot small block, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and an overall incognito fun driving personality.


The Tudor round backs have a fastback style that is great for a little extra fun. This one likes to disguise its true nature by letting you love the Henry Ford era steel first. The great gloss of the black highlights the iconic curves of the 1940 Ford. And all the brightwork that makes these such a star is still in place. The bumpers shine brightly; the grille has a powerful V-shape; and the trim runs like an unbroken line from the tip of the hood all the way until it follows the curve of the rear fender. So you need a keen eye to see the hidden hot rod. For example, you may be too busy admiring the classic red wheels with two-piece Ford Deluxe wheel covers to notice the extra meaty rear set. Or you need to notice the dual exhaust tips peeking out from the rear bumper.


This is a thoughtful custom-built interior, and that's evident from the moment you open the door. The low-back bucket seats have a classic look but offer better bolstering. And there are nice touches, like how the pattern of the upholstery matches the side panels and headliner. The plush black carpeting and smooth black dash complete a very uniform style. Even the air conditioning vents are well hidden within this darkness (it's running modern R134a but it will need servicing.) You'll love the vintage driver's details like how the thin dual-spoke steering wheel lets you clearly see the art deco marking on the gauges. And just like the exterior, if you pick up on the little things, like the tach under the dash, you start to realize this is a special kind of street machine.


The engine bay doesn't get to be as incognito as the rest of the car. After all, it's hard to hide a terrific small block upgrade, so this instead makes sure it's showcased brightly. The valve covers, air grabber, alternator, upgraded pulleys, and more all have a bright and fresh look that radiates from within the dark inner walls. Beyond the flash, there's the substance of a Chevy 350 cubic-inch small block V8 that has been upgraded with pieces like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. You also have good supporting components like a Painless wiring harness, HEI distributor, newer plug wires, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It's a strong-running powerhouse, and as you look underneath, you can see it was built for fun on the road. This means an upgraded suspension with a Super Bell dropped front axle and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. Plus, features like front disc brakes and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make this classic a comfortable highway cruiser.


This is vintage style that's made to get you down the road in power and comfort. So you know this is one special machine that won't stay long in our showroom. Call today!!!
