Default Fordoor to Tudor

I am looking at what is supposed to be a 29 Tudor but I have now been told by one of my colleagues that it was converted from a fordor and that I should not buy it. Take a look at some pictures.

I think somebody is pulling your leg. Maybe they want to buy it for themselves?
Of course I suppose it could have had the whole body changed.

That's a Tudor, the Fordor has the gas tank under the cowl.

So there is a general consensus that the car is and always has been a tudor?

another vote that it is, in fact, a Tudor.
Fordor would have wooden sills, etc. Nothwithstanding that, it just appears to be a tudor. Would be very interesting to hear your bud's rendition of why he thinks its modified.

There may be more to the story. Maybe your colleague knew the history of the car and it started life as a Fordor and the body was replaced with a Tudor body. If that is not the case, ask why he thinks it started life as a Fordor. I am sure everyone would be interested in the answer.

The only Fordor that had any resemblance to a Tudor [ mostly steel construction; coupe pillar & gas tank; same type door swaging etc] was the Taxi sedan. If you found one of those, buy it! I would love to hear how your friend justifies it once being a fordor!
Cheers Tom in NZ.

All good points above but I'm surprised no one has stated the obvious thing. The upper body mouldings on all Fordors were night & day different than the 55A mouldings. Unless someone went to a boatload of trouble shrinking out the double crowns in the body moulding to resemble the flat Tudor style, its a no-brainer to speculate its origin even without checking the sills or infrastructure.

Thanks for the input everybody. I am gonna talk to him today.

There are two extra holes in the firewall which I think are for some kind of heater, though I haven't seen one like it.

Turns out his vague text message was to get a Fordor, not that it was a Fordor.
