Vehicle descriptionOffered here is gorgeous 1940 Ford Standard Tudor street rod finished in slick Fiesta Red over matching Fiesta Red & Black combination interior! It features a GM crate 350ci V8 with Vortec heads and mild cam to deliver 330 horsepower to a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and 8.8" rear axle fitted with 3.27:1 gearing! It all combines for super smooth acceleration and low cruising rpm's at highway speeds! Options and accessories include VintageAir heat/air using a GM R4 pancake style compressor, Nu-Relics power windows, Flaming River tilt steering column, leather wrapped LeCarra banjo-style steering wheel, Classic Instruments gauges with tachometer & electronic speedometer, New Port Engineering electronic windshield wipers, and Custom Autosound AM/FM/Cassette audio system with trunk-mounted 6-disc CD changer! This stellar Ford Tudor Sedan was built meticulously by the former owner of 16 years, who performed a nut & bolt, body-off restoration between 2006-2008. It retains an all-steel body & fenders which were all stripped to bare metal and fully epoxy primed along with the original frame. He then had the inner fenders undercoated for added protection from road debris, before having the topside repainted in a 2-stage fashion to show winning standards! All exterior stainless steel moldings, emblems and trim were replaced including door handles, chrome grill, bumpers and mounting brackets! Note the front nose scuff plate to protect the paint against any obstacles. This restorer was not new to custom restorations having built multiple show winning vehicles before, with full intentions of driving his collection vehicles to multiple events each year. The detailed process of this restoration can be seen everywhere you look. The firewall was recessed 5" inches to better accommodate the new drivetrain, along with upgraded bear claw door latches on the doors, the removal of the door vent windows to fit new, one-piece side glass as well as a one-piece front windshield. At the rear, a small 3rd brake light was flush mounted into the body for a slick addition to added safely, along with front & rear seatbelts. The entire car was meticulously wired with a 22-circuit panel by American Autowire along with a fully insulated interior and trunk compartment for improved interior sound quality! Underneath, the original chassis was fitted with Chassis Engineering's independent front suspension system using Heidt's Hot Rod Shop tubular upper & lower control arms, heavy-duty shocks, power rack & pinion steering, Master Power Brakes electric vacuum power front disc brakes; and Chassis Engineering's parallel leaf spring set-up and adjustable QA1 shocks at the rear. It incorporates both front & rear anti-sway bars for superior road manners. On the ground are 15" chrome steel wheels with moon hubcaps wrapped in wide whitewall radial tires measuring 205/70R15 up front and 225/75R15 at the rear! Only high-end appointments were selected for this custom including stainless steel gas tank, fuel & brake lines, braided brake hoses, transmission cooler lines, and power steering hoses. The engine was outfitted with a Walker brass & copper radiator with Cooling Components electric fan & shroud; serpentine belt system, Mallory HEI ignition, aluminum intake with Holley Street Avenger carburetor, electric fuel pump, Sanderson block hugger headers, Magnaflow mufflers, Megs oval exhaust tips, and more! A large binder is included with the sale highlighting every aspect of the build, wiring diagrams, and replacement part component numbers. Also included is a storage car cover, two extra chrome hubcaps, and 2 sets of keys! A custom Ford Standard Tudor Sedan you really need to see in person to appreciate the level of time and effort involved to make it both a solid driver and equally beautiful show winner! Act quickly and thanks for looking!
