1949 Ford Tudor ***SOLD***

Classic look, 289 V-8 power with a C4 (early C5?) transmission and 3:1 9-inch differential. Tour the mountain roads or cruise the freeway at 65 mph.
White-wall radial tires and original hubcaps. Gauges all work, speedometer and odometer are very accurate, heater for those cold mornings.
Pertronix electronic ignition. Working clock and radio, seat belts, excellent upholstery, great chrome, year-of-manufacture license plates.
Pastel yellow paint is an eye catcher but has some rough spots. Full receipts for thousands of dollars of repairs
and improvements including valves, brakes and front end. See the list below.

Purchased on eBay in August of 2005 we've tried to maintain her as classic as possible.
She has a 289 V-8, C4 transmission and 1980 Granada 3.0 rear end
all of which is very nice for driving down the freeway.
