Heavy Metal – The Seether 1931 Ford Tudor

It’s hard to go wrong with a 1931 Ford Tudor, but it’s even harder to get one this right. This Model A showed up to St. Louis-based Classic Car Studio as a pile of metal with no wheels or drivetrain and they turned it into a 500-plus horsepower work of art.

Built for the bass player of the band Seether, the blown Hemi-powered 1931 Ford Tudor has had a massive amount of custom fabrication and woodwork done to reach its metamorphosis. It’s certainly a one of a kind car that you won’t find anywhere else.

The heart of the beast thumps extra loud thanks to a Weiand 6-71 blower sitting atop a 331 cubic inch Chrysler Hemi. On top of this you’ll find two Holley four barrel 600cfm carbs modified for a supercharged application.

With an MSD Ignition system igniting air and fuel let into the big cylinders via a Hot Heads camshaft, the 500 ponies are then sent through a TCI 700R4 transmission. From here, power gets sent through a John’s Industries 9-inch rear axle.

If you couldn’t tell from the look of this thing, there were no corners cut during the build. But underneath the skin, the build becomes even more complete. No stone has gone unturned here.

Speedway Motors supplied the suspension, shocks, steering column, front axle, grill shell and loads of other high-quality parts to make this thing come together. A Wilwood brake setup helps the old girl come to a stop, and you’ve probably already noticed that the radiator, which has been relocated to the back of the car, is absent from the engine bay. We haven’t really seen this before and its way cool!

To get the aggressive look the roofline was lowered with a five-inch chop while the frame was stretched three inches. Rather than chop up an original car, the chassis was handmade at Classic Car Studios.

Peaking inside, things continue to get better and better. The aircraft-grade brass rivets, lightning holes, and incredible metalwork have all been left almost entirely bare. Inside and out, it’s a raw and earth-shattering machine.

The handmade theme continues with the seats, dash, door panel, extended floors, transmission tunnel, and firewall. The roof is custom as well, courtesy of Goebel & Co. Furniture, made from zebrawood. So, really, just about everything was built from scratch.

This extends to the steel wheels which CCS modified to fit the Model A’s new aesthetic. Now measuring 18×4 up front and 20×8 in the rear and wrapped with Coker/Firestone tires, the old-school look is complete.

With everything being a one-off affair, it’s obvious that Noah Alexander, owner of Classic Car Studio, had his guys pouring in the hours to finish this build. As a totally custom creation, the cohesiveness of this build is what stands out to us.The Seether 1931 Ford Tudor, Fuel Curve

Everything is in balance, and all that’s left is to cruise Classic Car Studio’s insane creation. This is far from their first wild build and next time we’re in St. Louis we’ll be making a point to stop by for a look at what else this shop has up its sleeve.
