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 restoration.
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!
