Being offered for sale is this very nicely built, show quality, ALL ORIGINAL STEEL, 1937 Slantback Sedan. The current owner/collector has had the car for the past 7 years. After driving it for the first couple of months he decided to do a full ground-up restoration of the frame, suspension, body, and interior turning it into "his" street rod. The project began in the late 1990s and was completed at the end of 2008.


All body sheet metal panels were stripped, prepped and shot with 2-Stage Hugger Orange GM Code 72 clear coat/base coat. This was topped with GM Code 79 Corvette Millennium Yellow flames along with some tasteful pin striping. The fit and finish is excellent on this all steel car. All panel gaps are uniform with perfect alignment. A few very minor, almost un-noticed rock chips appear on the lower frontal area giving evidence this Slantback is a show quality driver; not a trailer queen! The factory '37 grill is painted with a stainless frame. Other features include custom mirrors, recessed turn signals, smoothed and filled front and rear lower body panels and running boards, and a recessed 3rd tail light and license plate. Trunk and door handles were removed and operate seamlessly with electric solenoids & locks.

he interior is nicely upholstered in a Cinnamon colored leather and high-end vinyl combination. All surfaces are in like-new condition with no evidence of wear or blemishes. The dash has a billet insert with a full complement of gauges and controls for the Hot Rod Air AC, heat & defrost system. Power windows, power door locks, keyless enter and trunk release. An Ididit polished stainless steering column is topped by a half-leather wrapped billet Banjo steering wheel.
