The 1937 Ford five-window business coupes are always popular, but
this steel-bodied classic has all the right features to be a
cut-above hot rod. With a small block Chevy V8, overdrive
transmission, a nicely finished A/C interior, and plenty of
charisma, this might be your best opportunity to pick up the
fully-finished pre-war custom Ford you've always wanted.
If you were thinking about running moonshine in this one, think
again. The extended trunks of these cars were a favorite of
liquor-running outlaws, but in this case, the once inconspicuous
styling is now long gone. The professionally applied red paintwork
shines brightly on the steel body. And this bold red highlights the
iconic '37 Ford front end with its deeply-dipping pointed grille
and teardrop headlights. But the real distinctive attractiveness
comes from the custom details. The wheels are iconic Cragar SS
units that have a 14/15-inch front/rear stagger for a mean stance.
Plus, the fenders have been upgraded to fiberglass units. Not only
does that ensure the swoopy design remains, but it also can contain
the larger rear wheels and extra meaty tires in this
performance-oriented setup. You also have details like sport
mirrors, Streetrod badging, LED taillights, and bright dual exhaust
tips that all help announce this is a true custom build.
There was plenty invested inside to give this businessman's coupe
plenty of real modern conveniences. It starts with two gray leather
bucket seats with enough modern bolstering to be all-day
comfortable. They even power adjust to the ideal position. The gray
on the carpeting, door panels, dash, headliner, and even the trunk
all come together for a well-coordinated package. The driver gets a
Lecarra chrome steering wheel, a polished tilt column, and a Lokar
floor shifter. The original gauge package has been swapped for a
full AutoMeter setup for the best info. A street machine like this
is truly meant for cruising that's why you get comfortable features
such as the AM/FM/CD stereo and modern R-134a air conditioning that
make it easy for all-day driving.
The engine bay has that ideal amount of flair. Not only do you have
polished components like the alternator and compressor, but also
the bright air topper and valve covers have cool flames in them.
More than just look nice, this has the right power with a stout
Chevy 350 cubic-inch V8. It has a Carter four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock intake, and headers. The mild cam is great for both added
performance and a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. And this one
was built to be shown off everywhere near or far with ease. That's
why you have great driving upgrades like a Heidts Mustang II-style
independent front end, front disc brakes, and rack & pinion
steering. Plus, the transmission is a 700R4 four-speed automatic
with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with maintenance records, this is a coupe that could have
been a moonshiner back in the day, but instead, it survived to be a
creature-comfort hot rod. We know these unique cars don't stay long
