Description for Ford Tudor 1930

We're seeing a growing interest in sedans like this 1930 Ford Model A tudor sedan, cars that offer increased practicality to go along with their increased performance. Offering a cool chopped top, small block Chevy power, and a tasteful interior, this Model A gets just about everything right.If you're going to build a rod, you may as well make it attention-grabbing. The bright yellow flame job works rather well on the chopped 2-door bodywork and it still retains many of its authentic Model A styling cues. Among those are the windshield visor, traditional grille shell, cowl-mounted gas cap (not functional, of course), and the curving fenders that seem to hug the tires. Chopping a sedan can be a challenge, but this one nails it with a lowered look that seems sleek, not boxy, yet still provides decent visibility from within. The front half is mostly yellow and the back half is high-gloss black, and it's all in good condition with a few very minor signs of use. The three-piece hood allows you to run fully enclosed or with open sides for a racier look and there's good service access if you open it up all the way. The grille shell has a traditional cap and 'V8' emblem, while a dropped headlight bar holds color-matched King Bee-style headlights. 1939 Ford taillights are a traditional look out back, and they skipped a valence panel to show off the full independent rear suspension underneath.Neutral gray is the right choice with the combination yellow and black bodywork, and this surprisingly spacious tudor offers front and rear bench seats so there's room for the whole family. The dash has been heavily reworked (there's no longer a gas tank behind it) to hold a full set of VDO gauges plus a cool center stack with Vintage Air A/C vents and a pair of speakers for the AM/FM/CD stereo system that's in its own console overhead. A tilt steering column and 4-spoke steering wheel make it easy to get comfortable and heavy black carpets help keep it cool. The seats show some very minor signs of use, while things like the carpet, door panels, and headliner are unmarked and almost new, and we like that they kept the original door hardware and woodgrained windshield garnish molding. The rear seat area is nicely upholstered in matching materials and there are removable speaker boxes if you're expecting company.Under that three-piece hood you'll find a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that's been built to run and neatly detailed. There are a few polished aluminum pieces and lots of details that were painted to match the bodywork, so if you do decide to pull the hood sides for cruising, folks will have something interesting to look at. An Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake manifold add a little horsepower, while block-hugging shorty headers feed a rumbling dual exhaust with glasspack-style mufflers. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission channels horsepower to a Corvette independent rear end, which includes both the transverse leaf spring and a set of coil-overs. Up front, there are upper and lower tubular A-arms with coil-overs and disc brakes, plus rack-and-pinion steering, so it drives more modern than you'd think. Big-n-little Centerline polished aluminum wheels look great and fill the fenders with 195/60/15 front and 235/70/15 rear performance radials.This is a well-built rod that's ready to enjoy, and if you are tired of fiberglass coupes and roadsters, perhaps this will fit you better.
