This 1937 Ford 2 door Slant-back sedan, is one of those rare classic cars that should really be on everyones list of “Classic cars to own”. Why?…Let me explain. Everyone loves a show car! Bright, vibrant, highly glossy paint over a smooth, clean, perfectly gapped body. Good looking, preferably comfortable interior, nice looking engine, trunk compartment, nice wheels and tires, a clean undercarriage and a great stance…Right?
Then there’s the other element to Classic car ownership: Strong running engine, bullet proof drivetrain, ease of operation, comfortable to drive, air conditioning, smooth riding suspension and, deep, smooth tones emanating from the dual exhaust system…Also, Right? Of course!
The trick is to find such a car with both qualities, or for that matter, all qualities, all wrapped up into a spectacular package that most everyone will appreciate.
This 1937 Ford sedan is that car! Beautiful paint, clean lines, excellent engine and drive train, comfortable interior, room for your passengers, nice luggage space for traveling, all qualities mentioned above, and to top it of…Road worthy reliability!…What else is there?!
From the first turn of the ignition key the little 302 jumps to life like a brand new car. Pull the overdrive transmission into drive, take your foot off of the front disc brakes, and cruise as far as you like, anywhere you like! If you pull into a car show or cruise in, flip the switch to open the exhaust for a little extra Hotrod flash, and stop the car quickly so you don’t hit anyone in the crowd gathering around you.
This particular ’37 Ford has the unusual ability to WOW the hotrod enthusiasts, as well as the luxury Classic Car aficionados! And I can tell you without question…That’s rare!
This is an all at once fun, exciting, and striking classic automobile that will surely keep its owner smiling whether cruising for a short distance, a long distance, sitting at a car show, or sitting in the garage. Beautiful, beautiful car!
