A hot rod can be described as "a car that's been stripped down, souped-up, and made to go much faster." Whilst this sounds like a whole lot of fun finding the perfect mix of “stripping down” and keeping original is something that is rarely done right. You either get cars that are not recognizable, or cars which have not been modified enough to refer to them as a hot rod. Customizing and building a car can be tough so why not settle for this 1938 Ford Tudor we have today. Located in Oklahoma and with just 3,000 miles on the clock after its ‘hot rod’ makeover this is a perfect example of a hot rod done right. Vintage looks, modern soul and looks to kill.
This 1938 Ford Tudor is not too over the top. The exterior is finished off in orange and cream making this a 2 tone color car. The colors on the car make the car stand out but in its own unique way. You still get the original split window at the back as well as the original front grille and headlights contributing to the car’s original features. The car also sits on a set of vintage-styled chrome Billet Specialties wheels which contribute to the car's modern features as well as match the 2 tone exterior really well. With the exterior being fairly original the interior of the car has been totally redesigned to ensure its passengers enjoy a memorable drive. The interior of the car is finished off cream whilst having orange accents as well around the interior. The dashboard for instance is a mix of orange and cream and features a set of more modern gauges to communicate critical data effectively. The seats have been re-upholstered in cream color and complete the cars looks well. To top this all off this car is equipped with AC and heating to keep you comfy on those drives out, and a modern sound system has been installed too.
With the exterior and interior looking good where this car truly shines is what’s under the hood. Powering this 1938 Ford Tudor is a small block Chevrolet-derived 350ci engine. Power is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic 350 turbo transmission. Your driving experience is made better with power steering and disc brakes on all four wheels to ensure this car stops as well as it goes. The car handling is made better thanks to a 9-inch Ford rear end and Mustang 2 front end to accommodate the increase in power.
