  • Four door Vs Tudor

    Seems like there are a lot more tudors cars and parts for sale than four door. Did Ford build more tudors because of cost to the consumer?

    I just ran into 3 four door sedans looking for my car. I like the four door

      The Fordor was a wood body with tin nailed on, while the Tudor was a metal body with wood to hold the upholstery in place.

      So many more Tudors were both sold and survived. Fordors do have more class IMHO.

        Some of the four door sedans have the front seat attached to the B post which makes it near impossible for a 6'3" guy like me to enter and exit. The Tudor seats are only anchored on 2 pivot posts that are easily replaced and moved back for us height challenged.

          Have a whole pile of 29 Briggs learherback sheetmetal. Parts from 2 cars. One was the donor of the chassis used for the delivery and the other from another purchase. Sold some of the tin and made patterns for a few people. Once the wood is gone they are just piles of metal pieces. Rod
          Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

            I like the look of a tudor on the exterior of the car better then the fordor, but I like the fordor interior better then the tudor.

            Tudors outsold all other body styles. To me, they say 'Model A Ford' more than the other styles. We had a very early '29 Tudor that I loved. It was a great car.

            And yes, getting in and out of these little buggers if you are over 6' tall can be a challenge. The '28 Roadster PU, forget it. I don't recall having an issue getting in and out of a Tudor but even Roadsters themselves are a pain.

              Ok, so you are saying I have my work cut out for me.
              Thanks for the reply, always wondered what the difference was other than two doors.

                  In another thread you stated that you were going to start working on your 1931 S/W Fordor. When Ford stated producing these S/W bodies they become more of a metal body and very little wood. You should have very little trouble with your wood.

                      by Supergnat
                      I am really embarrassed to write this but I desperate need of advice. I accidentally drove my 28 Fordor Leatherback into the garage with the driver side rear door open. The door caught on the edge of the garage opening molding and bent the door back over the rear fender. I was able to straighten the edge of the door where it contacted the fender but the door will not close anymore. The upper and...

                      31 Ford Door no second click when closing
                      by Hawaii Pro 31
                      I’ve changed the striker, door latch too but it will not click two times as it closes. I, clearanced the outside of the door frame so there is space around the door and adjusted the striker a few times too. You push the door in, click but it will not click again to close the door. Is the door still contacting the body or is the striker the culprit,,,Thank you...

                      I'm in the process of painting my A Black and Maroon. When the doors are painted on the outside does the color scheme wrap around to the door jamb? Or is the jamb painted one color

                      Door Bumpers on a Pickup
                      by 30Pickemup
                      I’m going to adjusting the cab to fit the doors and the hood now that everything is painted.
                      My issue now is to not chip the paint in the process - so I thought it would be a good idea to install the door bumpers to protect the cab and the doors.

                      I have the parts shown in the pictures - as the door bumper kit. (I put captions under them)
                      I figured out where the top corner...

                      Where Does The Pinstripe End?
                      by Leo
                      When stripping the car (1930 coupe) and you come to the end of a body part like a door, does the strip end at the edge of the door or wrap around to the back of the door edge? Same question for the quarter panel where it meets the door, does it end at the end of the panel or wrap around the the door jam? Where the cowl meets the front edge of the door?...

                      I need to replace one complete door h​​​​​inge on my coupe ( lower one) and don't see at any of the retail houses the rivets that are used where they attach to the door. What do you folks use that have done the replacement.

                      Passenger door handle.
                      by Aretino
                      Need to know how to remove passenger door handle on my 31 coupe. The lever shaft seems to be captured by something internal of the door. I purchased a new locking handle assembly and need advice on how to install. Thanks

                      Door lock
                      by jordanka16
                      Does anyone know the reasoning behind only being able to unlock the passenger side from the outside? It would be one thing if I always had a passenger to unlock the driver side, but I'm always having to slide in and out of the car, since if I want to lock it I can only use the passenger door.

                      OK rant over
