An eager, well-equipped powerplant anchors the drivetrain, while loads of classic curb appeal teams with a comfortable interior to make this 1930 Ford Tudor Sedan a compelling opportunity. Encountering a streetrod with the ability to pull focus certainly isn't something all that novel in itself, but the finished appearance and reassuringly strong running condition on display here really does make this cruiser something special.
This Ford's arrow straight, ultra clean appearance combines with seemingly endless vintage style to make for quite a sight when it hits the boulevard. It's wearing a coat of silver metallic paint with just the right amount of flake added to give it proper texture and with just a little buffing out, this car will shine like a diamond. There are no blemishes or dings of note anywhere on board and the quality of the hand-painted burgundy pinstripes surrounding the cabin is truly something to behold. There are some great details on display throughout the exterior - the stainless steel grille and generously proportioned Ford headlights are in top form, and the vented 3-piece hood blends in perfectly as it transitions into the cabin just behind it. The black canvas top above has a fresh look that suggests it was fairly recently added.
Inside awaits a very welcoming cockpit - a good find in a niche not necessarily known for interior comfort. Lower yourself into the burgundy velour seat at its center and you'll notice right away how well padded it is and its well-fitted cover remains in top condition. Take a glance around the cabin - it's nice and broad, making for lots of shoulder room inside and there's also plenty of space separating the two rows of seating. To each side, the door panels are flush to their frames and just below the expanse of matching carpet is accented by a billet emergency brake. Up front, a beefy woodgrain steering wheel sits on a tilting column with billet knobs and the dash area in front of it features a set of SW gauges recessed into the instrument panel, surrounded by smooth silver steel. A Sony AM/FM/iPod stereo is on board, teaming with DB speakers in the kick panels to provide a strong audio experience offering an abundance of content options.
This '30s classic runs great and offers that exhilarating level of power you've come to expect in a car like this. The 350 cubic inch V8 beneath the hood is an eager powerplant - equipped with a 4 barrel Edelbrock carb on top of a Weiand intake, it pulls with plenty of vigor while sending a nice deep note out of its side exit exhausts, while the added HEI ignition ensures both quick starts and maximum spark. The engine pairs with an automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear brings RPMs down at highway speeds and a pair of electric cooling fans have been installed to keep operating temperatures in check. With a 4-link suspension now in place in back, this vintage Ford cruises with squeak free ease and suffers no binding around corners. Front disc brakes help provide fade resistant stopping power as this stare inducer rules the road on its set of 15" steel wheels with Ford chrome center caps. Below, the rock-solid undercarriage is just another factor that makes this streetrod well-positioned for many more future miles of driving enjoyment.
The combination of sheer aesthetics and willing power of this 1930 Ford Tudor Sedan really set it apart from the crowd. If you're looking for a ride that demands attention while providing a compelling yet worry-free experience behind the wheel, this is one to definitely check out. Call today!
