This 1957 Ford Custom Tudor sedan has a cool/mean dark style. And the upgraded V8 power and five-speed are all about street machine fun.
The Custom line was the exact right place to start for a street machine build. You have styling cues from the Thunderbird. Plus, there are distinctive touches like the sleek exclusive side trim and wraparound glass for both the front and rear. You take this fashionable setup and finish it off in a glossy black... now it's the ideal mix of chic and aggressive. That's the overall theme for the exterior. So while the wide grille and chrome bumpers are pure classic car cool, this one also makes sure it has the look of a true driver-ready street machine. After all, the dog dish hubcaps and Holman Moody license plate are exactly what you'd find on a stealthy boulevard king.
The interior continues the look of a sleeper-style street machine. So it has a very stock appearance, right down to the retro-cool upholstery. It's not made to be loaded with features or any crazy pinstriping. The overall idea here is the kind of old-school fun where you know all the money when into performance. There are auxiliary readouts and provisions for a column-mounted tach. And when you count the gears on the floor shifter, you really know this one is extra-special.
The engine bay makes sure to announce this is a true powerhouse by putting the Cobra valve covers on full display. This is a 351 cubic-inch V8, and you know these Windsor motors love upgrades. So this has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers feeding into a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. You'll also spot the right supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator. It is a powerful V8, and the control is firmly in your hands because the upgraded Tremec five-speed gives you more greats and better ratios than you could get back in the day. A true street machine like this wants you to feel the road but features like front disc brakes and the grip of modern tires add confidence.
This classic Ford uses its dark attitude to be both powerful and stylish, and that makes for an irresistible custom. Call today!!!
