For Sale: 1937 Ford Business Coupe in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 under our showroom lights. So if you're quick enough to grab this, your own legend begins here. Call today!!!
