This 1940 Ford Tudor sedan has the ideal vintage hot road appeal. Everything from the upgrades on the Flathead V8 to the velour on the seats has been done to give the full impression of a cool old-school machine.
This one gives a cool first impression. The burgundy was an upgrade later in life. It shows it went down with care, and it has aged nicely for the attitude this Ford likes to give. After all, the teardrop headlights, Art Deco grille, and rounded chrome bumpers made these the darlings of the hot rod scene. And this one feels like the kind of car that was built with car to go cruising on a youthful Saturday night. After all, the Moon Eyes in the grille and Keystone Klassic wheels are the kind of things that give this an attitude that would fit right in on the set of American Graffiti.
Inside, the red velour has more of the vibrant cruiser attitude. And the button-top presentation is shared with the door panels for a very cool look. The dual-spoke steering wheel and dash have a great vintage attitude. Even the proper AM radio is still on display. But details like the 8-ball on the column shifter and hula girl on the dash are more reminders this was built for a little fun.
If you like the old-school vibe this one is giving off, then you'll love the motor. This has the unmistakable look of Ford 239 cubic-inch Flathead V8, and you can also see it has all the right vintage street machine upgrades. It includes the Offenhauser heads, a Fenton intake, and dual two-barrel carbs on top. It fires up nicely, and gives a sweet sound out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. And you'll love the way the column-shifter three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control and a classic feel.
Take some time to look over the whole car, because behind the old-school presentation are quality details everywhere: from the deep tread on the tires to the way the doors line up. It all proves this is a unique classic offered for a great price. Don't miss out, call today!
