1937 Ford Tudor Slantback The 1937-1940 generation of Fords is one of the most popular automobiles for hot rodding. Early stock car racing drivers also used Fords of this generation among other cars. This Ford also formed the basis for a style of dirt track racing car. In this writers opinion it has one of the sexiest rear ends of any car. The teardrop headlights and tall lazy V shaped grill also keeps me from kicking this car out of bed for eating crackers! For consignment, a slant back from 1937 painted in period correct Dove Gray and slightly rodded. Doors shaved, tinted glass, and updated dash and new staggered black wall tires, this car is definitely a sleeper so BEWARE! Exterior With its iconic teardrop fender mounted headlights flanking a V shaped ever widening as it rises horizontal ribbed grille, its all framed by Dove Gray steel which has a bit of a textured finish. A pointy hood lifts upward, (no more cowled hood here kids), and has some shiny ribbed side vents. The wonderful sexy fenders frame staggered black wall tires with red painted steel wheels and shiny old school trim rings and center caps. All the exterior chrome, glass and rubber have been renewed. The door handles are shaved and now a FOB opens them up! This also works for the trunk release, and the electric windows that feature tinted glass. On the back the perfect line of the roof melts into the trunk lid, and now LED taillights are inserted into the original bullet casings which are their own stalks at the bottom of each fender. A split oval rear glass, and split bumper below add to the mystique of the back of this car. Also wide chrome exhaust tips give it away just a bit of what you may be in for. Also black highlighting pinstripe accentuates the lines and wraps around this curvaceous car. Interior Charcoal gray door panels house shiny polished handles and cranks in an otherwise very simple plain panel. Slipping onto the newer leather black buckets we stare at an updated dash featuring antique white AutoMeter gauges and a nice lineup below them of operating lights telling you what gear you have selected. Fronting this dash is another example of the wonderful design that existed in this era, that being a leather wrapped banjo style steering wheel with a center cap in polished stainless with a V8 logo on it. It sits proudly on a tile column. The center speaker panel is still there and nicely polished. Vintage A/C and heat have been put in and also a broadcloth rear bench seats additional passengers in back. Drivetrain Under the hood is now a 350ci crate engine and it gleams with pride. It has an Edelbrock 1406 carburetor and Mallory ignition. On back a TH400 3-speed automatic tranny resides and it throws power rearward to a Ford 9-inch 3.08 EquaLoc rear axle. Smoke em if ya got em and this does! Polished valve coverings, and other add ons and youll have to wear shades to look at this mill. Undercarriage Solid X framing and slight surface rust for the all steel running boards. Body hangers are solid and a snarling slithery Magnaflow dual exhaust makes way rearward for the big exhale. Suspension includes Posie Super Slider 4 bar front and a TCI rear leaf spring kit. New power disc braking slow the roll upfront, and in back, new power drum braking. Woah! Drive-Ability This car has a nice melodious tone to the exhaust and as you give her more gas it only gets better! Smooth nearly endless acceleration, great handling and solid bias free panic stopping along with all the creature comforts, make this car a classic looker and a solid cooker. The gas gauge is inaccurate so states the consignor. A sleeper with the look of a pretty typical 37 Ford, but the power of a sneaky 350ci V8, Edelbrock Carb, and now automatic transmission. A great combination of old look and new technology and a fantastic rear ending. Noice!
