What Depression-era car managed to dethrone Chevrolet in sales in the mid-1930s? Ford’s Model 48. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this fully restored 1935 Ford Model 48 Slantback. Lloyd Duzell, a long-time Early Ford V-8 Club member, built this car to a very high standard and it shows. Lloyed owned this Ford until 2015. Duzell restored many vintage Fords over many years.
Dressed in distinctive high gloss maroon, the car’s paint and trim are in excellent overall condition. The car’s five-windows plus its windshield are in overall fantastic shape, however there is some delamination at the right rear window. The car’s lights, including its fog lights and blue dot taillights are clear and intact. This car also comes with dual horns. Note that this car only has a driver’s side windshield wiper.
The Slantback’s bodywork is straight and solid, the battery looks new, the engine bay is quite tidy and the shiny chrome bumpers look great and fit well to the body. This Ford rolls on Goodyear Deluxe All-Weather wide whitewall tires, size 6.00-16 at all four corners. Within those whitewalls are 1936 Ford steel and painted wire wheel covers with center caps and beauty rings.
Inside is a brilliant tan leather interior. The front buckets and rear bench seats are in excellent order, as is the matching tan carpet. The headliner and three-spoke “banjo”-style steering wheel are in similar fantastic condition, as is the gearshift lever. While the speedometer and odometer work, the factory ancillary gauges are inoperable. However, there are a complete set of aftermarket ancillary gauges mounted below the factory gauges because the prove to be more accurate for actual driving this stunning classic. The clock in the glovebox door is inoperable but this car still maintains its original Philco AM radio, antenna and overhead speaker.
Underneath is a very tidy and highly detailed undercarriage, often a detail skipped with this era of Fords. It features many details such as a new gas tank and complete rebuilt suspension components.
The Model 48 was an update on Ford’s V-8-powered Model 40A, the company\'s main product. Introduced in 1935, the Model 48 was given a cosmetic refresh annually, begetting the 1937 Ford before being thoroughly redesigned for 1941. The 1935 Ford\'s combination of price, practicality and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 sold.
The 1935 Ford was a thorough refresh on the popular V-8-powered Ford. The four-cylinder Model A engine was no longer offered, leaving just the 221 CID V-8 to power every Ford car and truck. The transverse leaf spring suspension remained but the front spring was relocated ahead of the axle to allow more interior volume. The body was lowered and new “Center-Poise” seating improved comfort.
Visually, the 1935 Ford was much more modern with the grille pushed forward and made more prominent by de-emphasized and more-integrated fenders. A major advance was a true integrated trunk on \"trunkback\" sedans, though the traditional “flatback” or “Slantback” was also offered.
Two trim lines were offered, standard and DeLuxe, across a number of body styles including a base roadster, five-window coupe, three-window coupe, Tudor and Fordor sedans in flatback or trunkback versions, a convertible sedan, a woody station wagon and new Model 51 truck. Rumble seats were optional on coupe model. An oil pressure gauge (costing $4) and two windshield wipers were optional. If one got the optional radio, it replaced the ash tray.
Documentation includes Ford Approved Accessories Guide, original Ford V-8 instruction book, original sales catalog, and a Philco radio owner’s manual.
Competition to this Ford in 1935 include Chevrolet’s two-door Town Sedan and Plymouth’s two-door Touring Sedan.
