This 1937 Ford Slantback comes with shining V8 power, four-wheel disc brakes, and a loaded A/C interior
When a street machine is this bold and this slick, you want all the right pieces to back up all this custom style. It’s such a comprehensive build that you’ll even showcase the color-matched upgraded suspension.
A steel-bodied custom is always desirable, and today we all know the ’37 Fords were destined for hot rod duty. It has teardrop-shaped headlights, a pointed hood, and extra rounded fenders to accept extra-wide wheels. But that is just a nice starting point; it takes a lot of planning and investment to get a car looking as good as this one. The color that practically glows in the dark is a high-quality glossy yellow. It’s so stylish that even the grille was matched. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you’ll see enough bold yellow and bright polish to make sure you’ll put a mirror under this one at the shows, too! But as vibrant as this is, don’t forget to check out the little things, too. The full silver pinstriping, flush-fitting door panels, frenched antenna, hidden license plate frame, and integrated third brake light prove there is much more here than just awesome paint. And there are even the right touches of brightwork with the chrome bumpers, headlight surrounds, billet wipers, side mirrors, dual exhaust tips, and Halibrand torque thrust-style wheels.
The interior is built for custom comfort. It starts with bucket seats up front that have the kind of bolstering that will make you happy to cruise all day. They even power adjust to the ideal individual position. The tan rear seat, headliner, and custom door panels create a well-coordinated package. The wood tone of the dash even coordinates, too. They made sure this is a comfortable place to spend some time with power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo, cup holders, and ice-cold air conditioning. And this is a true driver’s machine with a banjo-style sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and a dash dominated by classic-style Moon gauges.
Under the hood is a show-ready engine bay. The smooth yellow walls funnel your attention to all the polished components on this V8. You’re looking at a 350 cubic-inch crate motor with powerful goodies like a four-barrel carburetor and headers feeding the sweet-sounding dual exhaust. More than just powerful, they also build this with everyday driving in mind. That’s why you have great features, like an aluminum radiator with electric fan, a serpentine belt system, and an Optima red top battery in the trunk. While you already checked out the cool color-matched undercarriage, don’t forget to also recognize the custom chassis, independent front end, a triangulated four-link rear, and coilovers. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is a terrific all-around package.
