1938 Ford Deluxe Tudor

We have a love/hate relationship with hot rods here at R&H. While we love a well-done car (reference our very own '57 Chevy, or instance,) we loathe hack jobs. Unfortunately, hat's what you'll most likely find when you go to buy one. When we see the right ones, hough, e'll offer them for sale. This car fits: Solid build quality, he right parts, nd it's well sorted. This car drives as good as it looks.


An original steel body Titled as a 1938 car A very cool hot rod Extensive paperwork, eceipts Big block power, very creature comfort You couldn't possibly build one for this price

Starting with an original '38 Tudor shell, plan was formed at Heartland Rod Warehouse in Berryton, S. A clean body, fully custom interior, competent chassis, nd big block power. Outside, ou'll find the result of 860 man hours in the bodywork alone. While the job seems straightforward--after all, t's just a mild custom, ight? Well, es and no. First, ody fit on a 1938 anything isn't what you'd call "close," and that's before adding new fenders, moothed steel running boards, rear roll pan, lushing up the taillights, renching in the license plate and exhaust outlets, having the door handles and much, uch more. Up front you'll find a stock grille flanked by replacement headlights in those big fenders. Amazingly, he fenders are the only fiberglass panels on the car. Sharp-eyed Ford fanatics will noticethe '39 engine side covers, hich are less "busy" than their '38 counterparts. The hood ornament and all other brightwork was shaved or painted body color. The windshield is a one-piece affair with a flushed gasket. The doors and decklid lost their handles in favor of electric solenoids, nd the rear deck now stays open thanks to pneumatic cylinders. Boyd Coddington Impulse Series billet wheels anchor the car to the ground. The candy flames add a little whimsy to a car which obviously doesn't take itself too seriously.

Popped the hood expecting some random rebuilt 350, ou'll be pleasantly surprised to see a big block Chevy instead. In going through the receipts we found that it's the car's centerpiece. It's a true 512 "Hi Perf" block, nd those aren't cheap or easy to find. It was then sent to Gessford Machine, ne of the premier engine builders in the midwest. There, hey checked everything over, agnafluxed the bock, ored it .030 over using torque plates, ine bored the mains, nd blueprinted all dimensions. A stock forged 454 crank was checked and ground, tock forged rods were reconditioned and had new Speed Pro forged pistons hung. The rotating assembly was balanced with the harmonic balancer and flexplate installed. The short block came together with new bearings and all ARP fasteners. A Comp XE268H cam was slid in, new double roller chain was hung out front, nd work progressed to the heads. They're a pair of 781 oval ports (torque's important here) that were CC'd, ave had a competition 3 angle valve job, ew guides, ew seals, ew Comp springs and a cleanup cut for straightness. Comp Magnum roller rockers work with Comp pushrods to actuate the valves, hich were milled to dial in their height, nd springs which were shimmed to even out the spring rates. It's details like that which separate a good engine from a great one! A Holley Street Avenger carb, polished and smoothed dual plane intake, ool finned valve covers and Sanderson shorties finish off the powerplant. A Griffin radiator keeps things cool--this car was built to run in the sweltering Kansas summer heat.

Inside, here's a lot to see. Heartland built the dash from scratch, nd it's all metal. Auto Meter gauges keep you informed, hile a $1900 stereo keeps you entertained. Talented stitchwork is everywhere from the bound carpets to the headliner. Custom door panels, ecovered bucket seats, ower windows, ilt wheel and more add to its appeal and your comfort. You'll find Vintage Air climate control, akota Digital cruise control, illet pedals and more. Look at the pictures and you'll constantly find new tricks.

Underneath, here's a chassis from Heinzman Street Rods painted in GM Torch Red. There's a narrowed Heidt's kit up front and a 9" axle out back. Wilwood polished calipers are at all four corners while rack-and-pinion steering guides your way. Cruising is a pleasure thanks to the 700R4 that's in the middle. Extra coolers for the transmission and engine oil are underneath, oo. The entire underbody is covered in thick bedliner for a quieter ride and less maintenance. There's nothing too trick under here, ut you'd be amazed at how well this car drives.

The build quality can't be talked about enough. This car starts right up, rives straight, nd everything works. If you're looking for a bright yellow car that'll wow the crowds, ive us a call.
