Classic Car Overview

This 1957 Ford Custom Tudor Sedan Restomod walks a cool line between great cruiser and true sleeper. So check out the vintage style mixed with terrific upgrades - including the fuel-injected modular V8, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. This Ford is filled with upgrades, but it also knows how to respect its history. For example, you might think that this kind of glossy gray is a modern color to announce this is a restomod. But Gunmetal Gray was on the 1957 Ford palette. This was upgraded later in life, and today it offers the right mix of clearcoat gloss and an easy driver-quality attitude. So you have a modern appeal thats also rooted in its history. In fact, history is a key to this cars appeal. There was a design update in 57 that made it a terrific classic with crisply defined tailfins, a wider chrome grille, and the headlights even looked Frenched right from the factory. And everything from the bright chrome bumpers to the fit of the doors shows nice overall care. It all has a cool/classic look, but there are subtle hints at the upgrades beneath the skin. The steel wheels with simple center caps are a classic sleeper touch, but this was done with a more modern 15-inch size to let you fit better tires. And there was even a Tasca Ford badge added to the rear because blue oval fans know they were like a power dealership in a similar way Yenko was to Chevy fans. The two-tone gray interior is a nice mix of vintage style and new components. For example, you have two wide classic bench seats to fit plenty of family and friends, and you can feel these are far more fresh than stock. This coordinates nicely with the door panels and dash for a full uniform presentation. There are well-integrated upgrades like power front windows and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner that also includes Bluetooth. Theres even an A/C compressor, but it will need additional components and servicing to be functional. When you first slip into the drivers seat, this has a vintage first impression. But soon you realize you have an upgraded wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a crisp set of classic-style AutoMeter readouts. So this is absolutely a drivers car. Lift the hood and see a fuel-injected 4.6-liter motor. There was extra time and care to make sure this modern motor looked like it always belonged here. It even has nice details like tidy wires and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. And overall, this is a thoughtful upgrade. The last of the Crown Victorias had a similar Modular V8, and since the name has its origins in the 1950s, you have a very cool/classic connection here. More importantly, a fuel-injected motor like this is a far more potent powerhouse than any of the V8s offered in 1957. It makes for the kind of fun and durable cruiser today that fires up easily, runs smoothly, steers easily with power steering, and keeps up with modern traffic. Theres even an upgrade to the four-speed automatic with overdrive for easy highway cruising. Plus, we bet there are plenty of you out there who know these Modular V8s are a hardy base for plenty of performance upgrades. And details like the tubular A-arm front suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes are not only good for easy driving today, but they also pair well with any added power. The sale includes nice spare components you want on a useful drivers classic, like door panels and touch-up paint. This Ford delivers classic looks that are upgraded in all the best ways. This is the restored driver-ready Ford that youre going to love. Call today!!!
