1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan Additional Info:

This beautifully crafted 1930 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan has a great custom look that's almost timeless, offering clean lines, solid construction, slick red paint, and a build that accomplished a singular goal: to combine both performance and comfort in a streetrod. Today, it's a fully-sorted, steel-bodied hotrod that's ready to hit the road and look great doing it.
More stylish than a four-door sedan and more comfortable than a business coupe, the Tudor was Ford's bread-and-butter car that seemed to do it all. Beautifully rendered in a very attractive shade of red paint and accented with some subtle, custom pinstripe work, it takes on a whole new dimension, and yes Ford fans, that's all steel on the body. Those swooping fiberglass fenders were subtly massaged to work with the fat tires and lowered raked stance, then covered with more of that bright red paint that makes this Ford really stand out on the local show field. Great attention to detail shows all over this car, and despite the flashy look finish, it's subtle in its modifications, there's no chopped top, no shaved or frenched components, and with chrome bumpers fore and aft, a custom louvered hood, and that awesome luggage rack out back, the spirit of the original design is still intact. Even the big front headlights, side mirrors, and door handles survived the transformation intact, and all the stainless and chrome still looks great with a vintage shine, especially that awesome mesh grille up front. The black top insert is in excellent condition and a lightly smoked windows give it an old-school hotrod look that really works well.
In 1930, the Tudor came standard with low-back bucket seats, although the plush seats in place today are a bit more modern and a heck of a lot cooler. Sure, they're durable and more comfortable for cross-country hauls, but they look right in the stylish 2-door body. Gray upholstery with pleats and tufted buttons is the right choice, since you don't want to compete with the paint but rather complement it, and the durable materials still look great with only 14,098 miles on the build. Custom door panels match the vinyl upholstery of the seats exactly, and the darker gray carpets below do a great job insulating the entire cabin. The original Model A dash and instrument panel has been replaced by a slick-painted panel with a full array of classic-style, black-faced VDO gauges that are symmetrically arranged in the center and keep an eye on all the engine's vitals. A wood-rimmed 3-spoke Grant steering wheel sits atop a tilt column for added room for the driver, the headliner atop is stitched to match the seats, and the full-sized back seat means that this is a legitimate 4-passenger hot rod. Climb in and discover how easy it is to get comfortable inside this Blue Oval beauty.
But wait, this Model A has a few more tricks up its sleeves under the hood, too. The engine is a 350 V8 motor topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake manifold, HEI ignition and MSD coil, and long-tube headers; a combination that was perfected decades ago so you can hit the road without worries. Packaging is tight in the Model A's engine bay, but thanks to careful fabrication, everything fits under the stock hood. A few chrome dress-up items, including those bright finned valve covers, give it a clean under-hood look at shows and the wiring looks new. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spinning a 10-bolt rear end that hangs on a 4-link set-up with coilovers out back. Up front there's a chrome dropped I-beam set-up with ProShocks chrome dampers along with front disc brakes that give it massive stopping power for such a lightweight vehicle. Chest-thumping glasspack mufflers sound great and terminate under the rear end (the side exhaust is aesthetic and therefore capped), and the entire undercarriage has been finished purposely to show-off. Wheels are polished American Racing Torque Thrust units and wear staggered 175/70/14 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall radials.
A classic rod with a few twists under its skin and a very reasonable price, what's not to love about this awesome Model A? Call today!
