    It's a 38. Is that close enough? I think it looks cool!

    I'm usually a coupe and roadster kinda guy myself, but lately I have been feeling a fat Ford sedan. With '39s, I have always been a deluxe or nothing kinda guy too. I'm also usually one of the first people to bark when some says "Can a four door be cool?"... So imagine my suprise when one of my favorite cars at Good Guy's Scottsdale gig this weekend was a '39 standard, AND a Fordor!!! The sign of a new, kinder, gentler me? Let's hope not!

    That's my all time favorite. Makes me want one an dBob McCoy is one of the greatest guys ever.
    '38-40' Tudor sedans are bitchin' cars that don't need a whole bunch.

    That's my car. I had two sedans one tudor and the fordor. For some reason other than the fordor being a tad nicer I liked the fordor. The goodguys trip was my first trip out of town it did well and inhad a blast driving it.
     
  9. Perhaps a bit radical for this thread (and it's a hybrid 39/40), but I think my buddy's car is the tits! Although these pics were taken at our local show, this car was built to be driven and it will get the wheels run off of it!

    I absolutely love the ‘38-‘40 Ford fastback design. To me, chopping, carson topping, etcetera just screws them up.

    I’m a bit afraid of those cars, though, as I have this recurring nightmare where I’m in one, barreling down a hill toward a stout tree, and the brakes only just barely slow the car.

  24. The last thing to alter on 38,39,40's are the grills, to me.

    39 sedan as a mild custom, for sure! I know, its a 40, but the front on a 38/9 is also great, some say better!

  26. Man, I wish I had more, but this is a fresh build and the car is now put away for the winter.. I will see if anyone else around here has some I can post. It's a gorgeous interpretation of a really nice body style (IMHO). Here are a couple more local Tudors to keep the thread going:

    Normally I totally agree but that Caddy grille on the red car in Hotrodsurfer's photo looks mean as hell to me.
