This 1957 Ford Custom Tudor sedan has a cool/mean dark style. And
the upgraded V8 power and five-speed are all about street machine
The Custom line was the exact right place to start for a street
machine build. You have styling cues from the Thunderbird. Plus,
there are distinctive touches like the sleek exclusive side trim
and wraparound glass for both the front and rear. You take this
fashionable setup and finish it off in a glossy black... now it's
the ideal mix of chic and aggressive. That's the overall theme for
the exterior. So while the wide grille and chrome bumpers are pure
classic car cool, this one also makes sure it has the look of a
true driver-ready street machine. After all, the dog dish hubcaps
and Holman Moody license plate are exactly what you'd find on a
stealthy boulevard king.
The interior continues the look of a sleeper-style street machine.
So it has a very stock appearance, right down to the retro-cool
upholstery. It's not made to be loaded with features or any crazy
pinstriping. The overall idea here is the kind of old-school fun
where you know all the money when into performance. There are
auxiliary readouts and provisions for a column-mounted tach. And
when you count the gears on the floor shifter, you really know this
one is extra-special.
The engine bay makes sure to announce this is a true powerhouse by
putting the Cobra valve covers on full display. This is a 351
cubic-inch V8, and you know these Windsor motors love upgrades. So
this has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and
long tube headers feeding into a sweet-sounding dual exhaust.
You'll also spot the right supporting components like an HEI
distributor and an aluminum radiator. It is a powerful V8, and the
control is firmly in your hands because the upgraded Tremec
five-speed gives you more greats and better ratios than you could
get back in the day. A true street machine like this wants you to
feel the road but features like front disc brakes and the grip of
modern tires add confidence.
This classic Ford uses its dark attitude to be both powerful and
stylish, and that makes for an irresistible custom. Call
