This 1937 Ford Slantback has a terrific street machine look and plenty of V8 power to back it up
But what you’ll really love is how this is an all-around driver, too. After all, features like a leather-lined A/C interior and adjustable air ride suspension mean this one is just as much fun to show off at a car show as it is to show off on a parkway.
The vivid blue is a great way to attract attention. There’s a good gloss to showcase the curves of this all-steel body, and this paint is also a great canvas for the full custom flame package. This is a comprehensive blaze of a paint job where multiple layers of flames start yellow-hot and burn to red all down the body. And the full fire is outlined in blue and red pinstriping to give it added definition. So you can tell this one wants to announce it’s a special kind of hot rod. Plus, you’ve got even more street machine details, like the louvered hood and awesome hand-laid pinstriping on the trunk by Mitch Kim. And there’s plenty of room for brightwork with the curved grille, chrome bumpers, bright handles, and dual exhaust tips. Not only do those Boyd Coddington wheels add to the shine, but they also have a 16/18 inch front/rear stagger for a great stance. And the adjustable air ride suspension means you can enhance the attitude even further on demand.
Where the exterior details are all about a wild custom look, the investments inside seem to be more about custom comfort. It starts with tan leather seating that’s absolutely plush. This even has the car’s Blue Rose nickname in the split front bench seatbacks. And you know it’s a full custom setup by the way the door panels match and even have a blue rose embroidered in them. Plus, there are more features for a comfortable drive, like the Alpine AM/FM/CD player in the headliner, air ride controls below the dash, and cold blowing R134a air-conditioning. You’ll love slipping behind the leather-wrapped steering wheel. It shows you the driver-oriented features, like a Lokar shifter, tilt steering column, and a dash full of Classic Instruments white-faced gauges.
The engine bay has a nice presentation with the smooth blue firewall as a backdrop for plenty of polished components like the valve covers, air grabber, intake, A/C compressor, alternator, and much more. Plus, you’ll also spot nice supporting components, like the aluminum pulleys, HEI distributor, and electric fan. At the heart of it all is a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 built with a Carter four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, Edelbrock EPS intake, and headers. It makes for a strong runner that loves to fire up with a terrific sound out of the dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers.
As you look underneath, you’ll spot a strong color-matched custom frame, a tubular A-arm front suspension, and a four-link rear. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make it easy to show off this Ford everywhere.
