NICE ORIG, FLATHEAD V8, 2K ON REBUILD, HENRY FORD STEEL, SOLID & CLEAN, NICE!!
There's something special about the 1936 Ford Model 28 Tudor sedan. The styling combines the traditional upright grille with a streamlined body, to create one of the best-looking cars of the period, no matter the manufacturer. This unusual two-door sedan with its integrated trunk is a neat look that remains faithfully original today.
Many of these tudor sedans have been turned into hot rod over the years, but this one is more about an honest 1930s experience. The gently rounded fenders with their peaked crease through the middle, the highly detailed hood vents, and practical yet stylish trunk with integrated rear-mount spare tire, it has all been transported intact from 1936. Finished in Henry Ford's favorite color, high-gloss black, it looks sensible, and nicely finished, with a nice red pinstripe to give it a high-class attitude. It kinda looks like a tuxedo, especially with the whitewall tires. All the original brightwork is intact - from the neatly dipped bumpers, to the original door handles, to the blue-dot lens taillights. It even still has the big, bold, V8 logo on top of the grille.
The interior looks thoroughly original right down to the gray mohair fabric on the buckets seats and doors. Ford's advertisements in 1936 praised the "Center-Poised" seat position, for the easy riding comfort, and today we'd just call it nicely plush. Even for its age, this car is a great cruiser. The steering wheel is well-worn from nearly 80 years on the road, and so your hands fit nicely into grooves that were created over generations of drivers. Every button, dial, and knob is period-correct, to make this Ford feel like a time machine. There are even plenty of spare components that come with this car to keep it feeling like it's frozen in time.
Open the hood, and the honest feeling continues. The 221 cubic-inch flathead motor is the ionic V8 that earned Ford its powerful reputation. This one has been dressed up with a few chrome accessories, such as the head bolts, air cleaner, and radiator piping, to attract the car show crowd, but you can still tell this motor is more about being a '30s machine than a hot rod. There's a similar situation with the new dual exhaust that still makes that unmistakable flathead sound. Most people would think twice about a journey in a car from 1936, but this one has been restored and maintained to be quite practical. The motor was rebuilt 2,000 miles ago, and it runs good on regular fuel. The three-speed manual transmission, combined with a new 3.55 rear end ratio makes this tudor versatile on the highway.
Its time to get your hands on an exceptionally well-preserved '30s Ford (it even comes with the original owner's manual). This one is shiny enough to attract everyone at the car show and original enough to earn their respect. Call today!!
