ALL STEEL BODY W/ GREAT LINES, 350 V8, AUTO, FRONT DISCS, A/C, COMFORTABLE RIDE
This 1940 Ford Tudor Sedan is one seriously stylish vintage cruiser that offers the promise of fun-filled times at an affordable price. Its steel bodied construction makes it well-suited to handle the stresses of both time and real world driving situations, while its nicely configured, comfortable interior provides an environment well suited for frequent journeys.
The vibrant orange paint draped over its steel form makes for one magnetic classic ride. Its sturdy construction has long been heralded for both its durability and rigidity and true to form, this '40 features strong body alignment that becomes more evident with a closer glance. You won't find any evidence of sagging or having been knocked off kilter here - even the running boards are steel and sit table level underneath the doors, and the gaps between body panels are consistently even. Up front, the blackened front grille adds some strong contrast to the surrounding orange, and the chrome exterior fittings present well - the trim looks shiny and fresh, as do the sturdy bezels surrounding the headlights. In back, the distinctive striped taillights, split rear windshield, nicely detailed badge and new-looking deck lid latch help give this vintage Ford a finished, well-turned out look. Ford equipped their sedans with broader, sturdier-looking front ends that featured prominent, level hoodlines as the '40s approached, and you can see how this specimen set the stage for models to come later.
The interior is a welcome surprise - it's got a suitably street rod vibe to it but offers plenty of comfort to make it well-suited for more than the usual weekend warrior duties. The gray cloth buckets feature sharp orange accents that match the exterior color while their tuck and roll surfaces blend well with the door panels to each side. You'll notice right away just how much room is on hand here - this is a generously proportioned sedan and there's quite a bit of real estate between the front and rear seating, so your backseat passengers should have no problem getting comfortable. In front of the driver's seat, a nicely padded Grant steering wheel sits on its tilt column, and just beyond the dash area features some nice details of its own, including a set of white faced VDO gauges that look great inside their brushed aluminum cluster panel. A modern underdash air conditioning system has been added to the mix and while it's blowing plenty strong, a freon charge may be needed to bring out its full potential. There's no shortage of luggage space in the trunk area - a handy feature, considering this sedan's smooth and quiet running condition will likely prompt you to embark on future road trips.
Very much in keeping with the road ready theme of this classic, the 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood offers plenty of dependable power, but without the potential headaches of more heavily modified engines. It fits surprisingly well in the Tudor's tapered engine compartment, dressed up with a chrome air cleaner that sits over its 4-barrel Edelbrock carb and a pair of chrome valve covers, and it's surrounded by well-detailed components, including a sizable aluminum radiator that sits up front to keep temperatures down in more demanding conditions. The engine teams with a 3-speed automatic transmission to make for a low-effort driving experience and it turns heads on its stock steel wheels that have been painted to match the exterior and feature chrome hubcaps.
With its nostalgia inducing great looks and solid, quiet running condition, this 1940 Ford Tudor Sedan has plenty to offer at a good price. Call today!
