For Sale: 1940 Ford Tudor in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

You instantly notice a car like this 1940 Ford Tudor Streetrod. It's the kind of custom build that goes well beyond the vivid paintwork. As you dig into the details, it reveals an upgraded suspension, custom leather A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. Plus, when you see such a mean big tire stance, you'll be glad to know there's a dual-quad V8 under the hood.

Deep purple paint with plenty of metallic is a terrific way to add extra emphasis to the rounded roof style that makes this Ford an icon. This vividness is balanced nicely with a sophisticated champagne tan on the bottom. The paint and turquoise pinstriping is used as an explicit border while still being smooth. And smoothness is an overall theme here. It's not only in the way the light rolls along the finish but also in custom details like the shaved door handles, integrated front turn signals, deleted trim, single-piece windshield, frenched tail lights, and frenched license plate. Even classic stock 1940 pieces are now dripping with enough chrome to make them sleeker, like the rounded chrome bumpers and the waterfall grille. It's the kind of straightforward style that takes a while to get right. This build was started in the early 2000s, and you even get plenty of organized build receipts and a photo file to take you along the transformation journey. And while we don't know how many miles this went since it was completed, it appears to have encountered reasonable care and less use. Then again, with the mean stance from those massive Hoosier Pro Street rear tires, this one looks impressive just standing still.

The cool suicide doors open wide to reveal the custom interior fully. The recipes document over $16k invested on the interior alone in 2013, so you know you're in for a custom and comfy experience. It starts with nicely bolstered front buckets borrowed from a modern car. They are finished in supple leather and power adjust to the ideal position. The matching rear bench seat, custom door panels, headliner, and trunk are in a similar beige. And there are terrific details everywhere, from the overhead console to the stitching in the door panels that announce this is a '40 Ford. Plus, we love how the exterior's purple and pink pinstriping flows through the door jambs and onto the dash for a tasteful and uniform appearance. You have many great convenient features like power windows and cold-blowing air conditioning. Even good fundamentals like a backup camera are just ready for you to install a modern infotainment system. The leather-wrapped sports steering wheel is on a tilt steering column, and the dash is dominated by AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges. So this custom Ford is ready for fun.

The high-polish engine bay means even the heart of this custom is attractive. Of course, when you also have a shotgun air intake, you know it's meant to be shown off. And beneath the dual barrels is a 350 cubic-inch V8 with two Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. The 700R4 is a four-speed automatic transmission, and this feeds a strong Ford 9-inch rear end. While this is a powerful setup, this was also built with cruising in mind. After all, the transmission also has highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, you have a tubular A-arm independent front suspension, ladder bars in the rear, adjustable coilovers, power steering, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors.

This is the '40 Ford that's ready to turn heads with its style and rumble. And you get to do it all from A/C comfort. So don't let this total package custom slip away. Call now!
