Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1940 Ford Deluxe Tudor Sedan has that classic pre-war look you love inside and out. But with upgrades around the flathead V8, a five-speed stick, and upgraded stopping power this vintage Ford has also been given the right investments to really make it a great cruiser for modern times.
The teardrop headlights, alligator hood, and rounded fastback-like style has kept this car an icon. And this one has the right classic look. It was given a comprehensive respray over two decades ago, and today, it balances a high-gloss look with the right signs of a road-worthy car that's been enjoyed. So basically, the first impression is correct-style classic that spends more time on the road than on the back of a trailer. As you continue to look over the whole car, you'll see that this driver-ready feeling is well-earned from the right well-integrated upgrades. But for now, enjoy the look of a true classic with bright red wheels and even brighter whitewalls. And yes, they did make a solid investment to keep the chrome looking newer and shining.
The deep red interior has a very classic look. Two rows of pleated vinyl seats, matching smooth door panels, and plush carpeting tell you they made a nice investment balancing vintage style with fresh-feeling materials. The dual-spoke steering wheel, art deco gauges, and smooth dash are all classic Ford. But this has also been updated with nice additions for driving, like seatbelts and a temp gauge under the dash. And have you counted the gears on the floor shifter yet?
You're going to want to show off the motor everywhere you park, and so this is ready for primetime. Ford's 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 is a big red beacon in the center of the engine bay's dark inner walls, and there's plenty of added polish for that extra touch of flair. One of the reasons for showing it off is that the classic style also has plenty of well-integrated handy upgrades. The 12-volt electrical system, alternator in a generator-style housing, Mallory distributor, modern plug wires, and aluminum radiator w/electric fan are all about making this classic as easy as an everyday driver. It's a smooth-running package, and the upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission gives far better ratios to take full advantage of the power. The cherry bomb dual exhaust even gives it a nice tune. And when you're out on the road, the urethane bushings, newer leaf springs, and upgraded front disc brakes gives this an added confidence you don't expect from a pre-war machine
Complete with owner's manual, this is the vintage look you love, and the upgrades that make it fun to enjoy for far more miles. So if you love driving your classics, you know this special Ford can't be beat. Call today!!!
