1929 Ford Model A Tudor SedanThis nicely crafted 1929 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan has a great custom look that's almost timeless, offering clean lines, solid construction, slick 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 Lamborghini Rosa paint and accented with some stunning airbrushed flames painted up front, it takes on a whole new dimension, and yes Ford fans, that's all steel on the body (sans the front fenders). Fiberglass front fenders were subtly tweaked to work with the fat tires and lowered raked stance, then covered with more of that dazzling two-stage paint that makes this Ford really stand out on the show field. Great attention to detail shows all over this car, and despite the flashy look finish, it's subtle in its modifications, sporting only a 3-inch chopped top, deleted bumpers, blue-dot tail lenses, and a custom louvered hood as major changes. 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 1929, the Tudor came standard with bucket seats, although the slick seats in place today are a bit more modern and a heck of a lot cooler. Sure, they're plusher and more comfortable for cross-country hauls, but they look right in the stylish 2-door body. Black upholstery with red stitching 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 15,887 miles on the build. Custom door panels match the vinyl upholstery of the seats exactly, and the black plush 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 The original Model A dash and instrument panel has been replaced by a slick-painted panel with a full array of Classic Instruments gauges that are symmetrically arranged and keep an eye on all the engine's vitals. A wrapped 4-spoke Ford 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 ZZ3 Crate motor topped by a Holley carburetor, an aluminum intake manifold, HEI ignition, aluminum heads, and Hedman 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 and stays cool thanks to a massive radiator and electric fan. A few chrome dress-up items, plus those finned valve covers, give it a clean underhood look at shows and the wiring is all new. It's backed by a TCI TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spinning an 8.5-inch locker rear end that hangs on a 4-link set-up. Up front there's a Pete and Jake's front end dropped I-beam set-up along with Wilwood front disc brakes that give it massive stopping power for such a lightweight vehicle. Chest-thumping Flowmaster mufflers sound great and terminate just before the rear axle, and the entire undercarriage has been finished purposely to show-off. Wheels are polished Rev 15-inch units and wear staggered 185/60/15 front and 225/75/15 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!
