There are customs, and then there are customs—ones that have that “wow” factor—a seamless blend of Detroit engineering and unbridled creativity and imagination. One such custom that strikes the perfect balance is this stunning 1937 Ford Coupe.
Talk about eye appeal! Finished in Bright Red, this high-end custom’s base coat/clear coat finish has a mirror-like luster. Its finish is neatly accentuated by Orange hand-painted pinstriping that fans into flames at the rear fenders, providing just the right amount of pop. Chrome-rimmed Mini Cooper headlights, a chrome-plated grille and tailpipes, and distinctive Foose wheels complete the look.
The custom interior of this looker is equally striking, featuring the finest materials available. You’ll love its custom cream-colored leather seating areas with ostrich leather inlays. This striking design motif is carried forward on the interior door panels, headliner, rear package area, and trunk, for a fully integrated look. Its full battery of Classic Instruments gauges, including a tachometer, will keep you fully informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll also appreciate its long list of comfort and convenience features, including the following:
Power trunk release and lift
Ididit tilt steering column
Push button start
JVC stereo system
Vintage heat & air conditioning
The windows, doors, and trunk are operated by a hidden panel in the center console and can also be operated by remote. All power items work as they should, including the ice-cold air conditioning.
Under the hood you will find a heavily chromed engine compartment. Power is provided by a 5.7 liter LT-1 V-8 engine mated to a 4L60E automatic transmission freshly rebuilt by Bowler Performance Transmissions. The 9” posi rear-end is new. Other performance equipment includes the following:
Baer 4-wheel drilled and slotted power disc brakes
Stainless steel front suspension
Chrome 4-bar rear suspension
Stainless steel fuel tank
Stainless steel dual exhaust
Aluminum drive shaft
Best of all, this beauty runs and drives as well has it looks, having just 10,900 miles on the powertrain since being completed.
