1940 Ford Tudor Sedan Gets Custom Treatment [Video]
text size: A- A+
We are talking about a 1940 Ford Tudor Sedan which has been... reinvented. The original body has been brought to mint condition and stripped of multiple details in order to offer a clean look, with a one-piece windshield being installed.
The vehicle is now powered by a 350 cubic inches (5.7l) ZZ4 V8 crate engine that delivers 350 hp. Yes, this might be blasphemy for fans, but the engine comes from... Chevy.
Here’s how the builders explained the use of such a powerplant: “In a rod, it’s awfully hard to beat a Chevy crate motor from GM, which is built like a production line piece and as a result is as reliable and powerful as anything you’ll buy off the showroom floor.”
The unit works with a 700R4 four-speed automatic tyranny and delivers the power through a custom-made Currie Ford 9-inch axle with 3.55 gears.
The handling promises to be delicious, as the vehicle uses a new tubular frame with modern suspension. The vehicle rides on polished Billet Specialties Hustler rims, which come in a 17-(front) and 18-inch (rear) size and are wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport performance tires.
As for the interior, this offers a multitude of goodies, such as a full leather finish, custom panels, an aircon system and many other cake icings.
The price for all this custom work? $79,900 - you’ll find the vehicle on the RK Motors website.
PS: if you don't have the money you could try another custom Tudor Sedan, which we previously presented.
