go to this site http://www.classicmotorcarauctions.c...ct.php?id=8408

I think it's not right to do that to a car like this they would of been better off making a hot rod out of it.
It's even has the carpet in it witch shouldn't be there at all they put everything in the car as a real Deluxe Tudor would of had I wonder if it's a all original car or not ????.
And the part's are all original to the car I wouldn't think so just looking at it I think it's a classic re-pop car who ever did this I'm sure they didn't use the original parts inside the car and as far as I can tell on the outside as well.
But as they say to each is own what I don't get why would you even want to do that and I just wonder what they got for it it's sold.
I just looked at the additional options and it says it has a am/fm radio and it says it didn't sell and they want between $15,000 to $20,000 for it and it was a full restoration but they added stuff that shouldn't even be there un-real

I'm wondering what they did, or am I not seeing the same 1930 Tudor? They added side mounts, and cowl lights. They also left the holes in the hood side panels for vent covers, and left the engine side pans off. Looks like a typical fixed up driver.

Tom,

What I'm saying is what they did is made a 1930 DELUXE Tudor in whitch there isn't one but you are right they did leave the engine pans off and this wouldn't be a regular driver car someone took the time to make this a Deluxe Tudor instead of a regular 1930 Tudor.

What I'm saying is they added the stuff that shouldn't even be in the car at all if you would want a driver car you wouldn't make the car a Deluxe like they did they made this car as the thing or ad says the car is for it's a judging car or (show Car) or ready to be one Not a driver car like you say.

Plus if your going to make it a driver out of it you would just make it a 12V system and your done but enough of that.

Reggie

Everyone knows that a DeLuxe Tudor was only made in '31 and must have a back seat that looks like this:

Yes I know that also I was just saying that they shouldn't of made a 1930 Tudor into a Deluxe Tudor that's all I was saying.

Plus I have a Late 31 Deluxe Tudor Sedan myself so I know that very well as to what they look like as I have one

I don't understand why this was even brought up? The owner did what he wanted to do. Are you saying that it is frowned upon if my tudor has a sidemount and cowl lights? I believe we should stop worrying about what other people are doing and focus on our own cars.

Seems your problem really lies with the auction company.

Have you contacted them with your complaints?

Hmm, wish I had that is my garage to talk about !
I might even put some 'stuff' hidden, so you can not see it,eh....to heat up the stock engine and make it run real good with a Mitchell or 2X
That way, it would be able to 'get on/off the TRAILER' quickly....

Guess I am in the "so what" camp. It's their car and they can paint it pink if they want.

Having been around awhile I have found that the average Model A fan thinks deluxe means a combo of cowl lights, side mounts and white wall tires.
The actual 31 Ford Deluxe Tudor is likely not known (nor cared) by 2% of the average fan.
Doubt this infraction of terms is that big of deal as many have pointed out.
Oh well, tomorrow is a free day!
