For Sale: 1937 Plymouth Sedan in Arlington, Texas

Vehicle Description

1937 Plymouth Custom

Cars may not be produced under the Plymouth name anymore but they had a length history stemming all the way back to 1928. These mopars are pretty unique especially when you start looking at street rods. You can find multiple custom 30s era Fords at every car show but when a Plymouth rolls in it always stands out. This 37 Plymouth humpback sedan has a great look and was very nicely built. The all steel body is in good condition and very solid with no signs of rust. It is painted in a very beautiful Dark Burgundy metallic paint which has a great shine out in the sun. We just had the car professionally detailed and the paint really pops. It does have some scratches in spots but no dents. One of the coolest features this vintage of classic has to offer is all of the ornate chrome and stainless. This was back in the day when cars had unique designs and demanded your attention. This car has some great designs and all of the bright work has a beautiful shine. There is a piece of side trim missing on the hood side panels in our pictures but it does come with those pieces. Headlights were not yet incorporated into the fenders at this time so it has the original separately mounted headlights up front along with the fog lights on the bumper and in back are 37 Ford lights on 37 Plymouth stands. Adding a nice touch of class to the exterior is the nice chrome spoke wheels which really look good on the car and are wrapped with BF Goodrich tires.

Fold open the 4 piece hood from either side and you will find a 318 V8 motor out of a 1989 Dodge pickup. You can imagine that in this business we get contacted regularly about vehicles that have Ford bodies with Chevy motors. Some people love it but then the purists won't even touch cars like that due to the mix match of car manufacturers. That is part of what makes things like this Plymouth so cool. Typically one would assume a car like this is sporting a Chevy 350 but effort was put into this one to make sure it was all Mopar. The 318 runs great and sounds great running down the road. It features a fuel injected throttle body, a chrome air cleaner, Mopar Performance valve covers and Street Performance headers leading into the dual exhaust. Backing up the motor is a 727 3 speed automatic transmission. Some nice upgrades include the power brakes with disc up front, power steering and the aftermarket AC system. In addition to the body getting detailed the car also received a fresh tune up to make sure everything was running properly. During that process a new radiator was installed which paired with the electric fans always keeps the car running smooth. The front end was changed out with a Fatman Mustang II style suspension which improves the ride and stance on these cars quite a bit.

The interior of the car is done in a combination of Grey leather upholstery with Burgundy carpets to match the paint. It is in great shape and comfortable. This is a street rod you can take the whole family cruising in because it has plenty of space with bench seats in front in rear. It is also a 4 door with the suicide rear door opening up to give full access to the rear seat. It used to be that 4 doors were less popular but in cars where the rear is suicide from the factory a lot people actually prefer them. The condition of the inside is very nice with little to no signs of wear. The dash is painted to match the exterior and is topped with Classic Instrument gauges, Vintage AC controls, and incorporate AC vents. A painted to match Ididit column sits in front of the driver and features a woodgrain Grant Banjo style steering wheel. A Lokar shifter is routed through the floor and moves through the gears well. The trunk of the car is finished out the Burgundy carpet as well and is where you will find the remotely mounted battery and spare wheel.

This fun car has a lot going for it and runs very well. We don't think this thing will be around for long because in addition to being a nice looking and driving street rod it has a great price!
