It's no shrinking violet we have here. Wearing a high impact shade over its exterior, this 1937 Ford Slantback has an undeniably high impact visual presence and distinctive style that combines with a comfortable driving experience to really set this streetrod apart from the crowd. Add to that a drivetrain that's in top form and you have a bona fide formula for plenty of fun on the asphalt.
This is a classic that's sure to pull attention wherever it goes. The wow factor is already built in via its distinctive color - the fuchsia paint this '37 draws you in right away and a closer inspection will reveal that it's been skillfully applied and remains in clean shape - though a comprehensive detail will elevate it even further. The dramatic pinstriping running along its sides wears razor sharp edges and has a nice, consistent pigmentation and the chrome that's on board here is really looking solid. Fords from this era wore show-stopping front grilles and this one represents that styling cue very nicely, the pair of close set tailpipes peeking out from beneath the rear bumper is a great visual. Its lowered stance is in keeping with the modded sensibilities it wears and there's still enough clearance to make driving in everyday conditions a definite option - a third brake light has been installed in back to make things just a little safer in traffic.
The well-configured interior offers plush comfortable seating in the form of a pair of late-model contoured buckets up front and a broad bench seat in back, both of which wear gray cloth covers that are in top form, with no noticeable discoloration and only the slightest of wear. The door panels to each side are in good shape and are emblazoned with a ""37"" to proclaim this streetrod's identity. Climb inside and you'll notice right away just how spacious this cabin is - in particular there's an ample amount of rear legroom so your backseat passengers can really stretch out. A leather wrapped Lecarra steering wheel is perched on a tilting column that puts it in just the right position for maximum comfort and the color matched dash area just beyond it is another strong feature, with a full assortment of gold rimmed VDO gauges whose parchment faces and antique font blend perfectly with this setting. A Pioneer stereo pairs with Audio Vox speakers to tend to your audio requests while out on the road.
Beneath the hood, there'll be plenty of dependable power at your disposal in the form of a 350 cubic inch V8 that sits in a nicely maintained engine compartment. A chrome Edelbrock air cleaner and chrome valve covers elevate its visual appeal, while the added Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carb optimize its output. The powerplant receives a nice hot spark via the added MSD ignition and is running strong, sending a nice, rich note out of its MagnaFlow dual exhaust as it pairs with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain is rounded out by a 9"" Ford rear end known for its durability. In addition to its considerable aesthetics, this vintage Ford is a reassuringly strong driver that's easily navigated via the added rack and pinion steering that eliminates the excessive play in more antiquated systems and the front disc brakes provide fade resistant stops. A set of ultra-clean, staggered Foose wheels - 17"" in front and 18"" in back - adds just the right finishing touch to this charismatic street machine.
