About the 1935 48 Slantback

Incredible new looks, improved ride and important mechanical improvements made the Ford Model 48 the best selling American Automobile in 1935. All most twice as many as the 1934 Ford.

New looks on the 1935 Ford included a narrower streamlined grille, sleek body color headlight shells, and chrome trimmed
horizontal hood louvers.

Other 1935 Ford changes included new rounded fenders and twin tail lights. The windshield was much more sharply sloped, and for the first time, Ford offered a built in trunk on their 2 and 4 door body styles.
