1937 Ford Custom Coupe
The classic 37 Ford features some of the coolest body lines ever designed for a car. The wide fenders, pointed nose, tear drop headlights, and large grill all work together to create an awesome look. They have such a great appearance that they were the inspiration for all of the fiberglass rods you see out there with OZE and Wildrod bodies. Those cars are cool but there is nothing like the originals. This 37 Ford is a true all steel 37 except for the rear fenders and was extremely well built. It utilizes top of the line components throughout and turns heads wherever it goes. It was constructed by Orndoff Hot Rods and every step was professionally done. The Laser Blue paint is absolutely stunning and people are constantly asking for the paint codes because it is so eye catching. Out in the sun the Blue really comes to life and looks perfect on a car like this. All of the chrome work shines beautifully and has a like new finish. The side panels feature a custom almost frenched looking cutout with custom side grills that look perfect on the car. If the original designers could have seen it there is a good chance they would have made it a standard on all 37s because it fits the car so well. 36 Ford taillights were added to the car and give it a nice old school touch. All of the glass is in excellent condition and the car has the split style rear window. When it comes to custom cars wheels add a ton to the overall look and the choice of chrome Radars with wide white wall Coker tires is absolutely perfect. You wouldn't immediately think to put white walls on a car like this but they really add a lot to the overall appearance.
Powering the car is an aftermarket fuel injected LS2 so the car has a lot more than just the look. It has less than 15,000 miles on the motor and it is fitted to a brand new 700R4 transmission so the entire drivetrain will last many more years and a lot of miles on the road. The engine compartment is very cleanly done with everything having a show ready appearance. A custom Proctor air cleaner sits on top of the motor and gives it a cool custom look. You don't see many of these and makes it look different than all of the other LS2 cars at the show. The car has a great sound with dual Magnaflow exhaust that are routed out of the rear. It has a Mustang II front end on it with Wilwood disc brakes and a 9 inch Currie rear end (3:73 gears). It also features QA1 adjustable shocks so you can fine tune the ride as needed. The entire underneath of the car is just as clean as the top with a majority of the components painted Blue to match the body.
The inside of the car is complete in a Beige leather with Brown carpet. The upholstery work is in great condition and clean. The Glide split bench seat is very comfortable and fits nicely in the car. The dash of the car is painted to match and is fitted with Vintage AC controls/vents and very cool Auto Meter gauges. In the middle of the gauge package is a digital gear indicator. An Ididit tilt steering column sits in front of the driver and is topped with a Banjo steering wheel. All of the door handles, pedals and power window controls are nice billet pieces. The gear shifter is routed through the floor and utilizes a custom knob. The trunk of the car is nicely finished out and houses a kill switch.
This 37 is absolutely beautiful and among the nicest we have ever listed.
