1937 Ford Pickup
We are in a day and age where both parts makers and builders are
going to new heights in the automotive world. If you want to make a
big splash with your vehicle, you will need to be creative and use
new ideas that others have not conjured. Yes, there are a number of
aftermarket companies that help us modernize these vintage haulers
but you will need to add your own special touches in order to
create a unique ride that will get noticed. -Thx Fuelish
For consignment, a unique ride one cannot help but notice in the
form of a 1937 Ford pickup hot rod. A fiberglass Downs body, car
styling on the front end, Boyd Coddington wheels and a snazzy paint
job are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this skate.
Read on my fans!
Downs is a noted manufacturer of fiberglass reproduction bodies and
this one was taken directly from Henry's drawing board to the
fiberglass mold. On the way some modern interpretation was put into
that design including a chopped top, more slender fenders and a
customized bed and tailgate. Its original Art Deco charm is still
seen with the teardrop headlights and V styled grille with
horizontal ribs. These headlights are within centerfold-esque
curved fenders, and the suspension has been lowered to frame the
polished Boyd Coddington wheels wrapped in low profile radials.
White pearlescent bathes most of the body, but some orange is
highlighting the upper doors, partial on the roof back and pan to
the edges of the bed and rear spoiler. A black delineation line
fades in and out on the edge of the orange and white. Some tasteful
silver flames begin at the grille and lick rearward along the
beltline nearly going through the doors. A fiberglass bed cover is
covering the bed, and on the back it has been shaved of the bumper
and the fenders have been modified on the rear to gracefully melt
into the back of the rear roll pan and glove fitting tailgate.
Modern vertical LED taillights are frenched into the back as is a
license plate holder and frame. Shiny side pipes peek out of either
side of the running boards and a split rear window is on the back
of the cab, again taken from the car styling of the same era.
Underneath the fiberglass tonneau bed cover we see some tongue and
groove flooring in stained pine and highly lacquered. Attention to
detail was paid on every aspect including the sides and inside of
the tailgate which is covered in stitched white vinyl with some
embossed flats on the inner tailgate.
The customization continues with a full tan leather interior
including the embossed flame door panels and customized billet door
pulls and leather armrest. Inside modern high back buckets with
oversize side bolsters sit on the floor which is covered in clean
slightly darker tan carpeting. The dash top also in leather is
padded and below the dash front is metal that is bathed in orange.
For the gauge cluster the dash top forms an eyebrow and a cluster
of white faces with orange letters and number gauges and chromed
bezels is in front of the tilt-able steering column with a rally
steering wheel also covered in leather. A shiny billet aluminum
shifter is covered on the bottom with a leather boot. This truck
has AC and the switch is masterfully hidden under the dash. Also,
the doors are power latched and actuated by another hidden switch
under the running board. Power windows are installed, and even the
headliner is customized with an embossed flame design above also in
Under the V styled hood is a 350ci V8 that is shoehorned into the
engine bay. It has plenty of cast and polished add ons, including a
4-barrel Edelbrock carb and intake manifold. On the back is a 700R4
4-speed automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear takes the
power and puts it to the pavement. Headers are on for the big
Perfectly preserved gray painted steel mixes with black painted
coils and underneath the wood bed to create a beautiful environment
for the underside. Power disc brakes are upfront, and power drums
are on back. Independent suspension is on front and a 4 link with
coil overs is on back. Shiny like new Turbo mufflers have that
previously described side running board exit.
This truck is an eye catcher with the paint, and a true performer
on the test track. Here it showed me great acceleration, solid bias
free braking, and fantastic handling. The interior was very comfy
and all functions worked as they should.
A not often seen 37 Ford in truck form and this one is a stunner
and a runner. All fiberglass so no dents or dings two worry about
as well as rust, and snappy paint, a fiberglass tonneau and a
tongue and groove wood bed with a custom vinyl liner on the sides.
