You know that car you always see with the crowd around it at the local cruise night? Well, this is it. Beautifully finished, this 1937 Ford slantback 2-door sedan shows off what the ideal combination of modifications and style can do to what was once just a transportation appliance. OK, so nobody will ever accuse the 1937 Fords of being ugly, so thats probably why the guys who built this one left the sheetmetal alone. No chopped top, no radical de-trimming, and no outrageous paint job, just clean, honest Ford steel in the original shape. Of course, fit and finish are worlds beyond what Henry could manage in 1937, even if he were willing to spend the money to get it to this level. Look closely and youll note a few mods, including the frenched license plate frame and a very, very slick 1-piece windshield. The body was smoothed and finished to a very high standard before several coats of luscious burgundy basecoat went on, followed by a few layers of clear for an impossibly deep shine. While they were at it, they gave the grille a coat of the same stuff, and youll love how it highlights the bodys subtle creases and curves. The interior is the kind of place that youd be happy to spend a weekend or more, thanks to comprehensive upgrades that make it as comfortable as a modern luxury car. The front seat is a unique split bench with individually reclining backrests, and in back the original bench has been retained. Upholstery is white leather with burgundy suede inserts, so its bright and airy with a strong sense of style. The original dash has been reworked, and the stock instrument panel has given way to a trio of gorgeous gauges from TPI Tech. A powerful A/C system and JVC AM/FM/CD stereo head unit are fitted into a custom enclosure under the original dash, and its so neatly integrated that youll have a hard time believing that Ford wasnt building them this way in 1937. A gorgeous wood-rimmed banjo-style steering wheel lives atop a tilt column and that billet aluminum shift lever links to a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission. Under that slanting deck lid, youll find a surprisingly spacious trunk with a cleverly disguised Optima battery. The engine is a ZZ4 350 crate motor, so you know its powerful and reliable out on the road. Fully dressed with lots of chrome, this will be part of the reason for the crowd forming around this car. A Holley 4-barrel atop an Edelbrock intake is a time-tested combination, and the dual exhaust system was built as much for sound as for performance, because this car sounds amazing. The front suspension is a TCI setup with disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering, while out back theres a very slick independent setup that looks like it was borrowed from a C3 Corvette. The quality of the workmanship is evident everywhere you look, and it has not been driven much since it was completed. Even the brightly polished Cragars and 17-inch Nitto rubber dont seem to show much use at all. Expertly engineered and beautifully finished, this is the car youve been dreaming about adding to your collection. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
