For Sale: 1937 Ford Custom in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Wow is this one slick! It's like red glass. Very tidy through out. This is a real 1937, all steel car. It is detailed and ready for a car show. It's a very comfortable driver with air, seats 4 easily.

EXTERIOR: This is all steel, the body and fenders. I'm very impressed with the fit and finish. Every inch of the body is laser straight. No rust, damage, waves or problems. The paint is polished like a mirror, literally. All the chrome trim is excellent. The running boards are recovered like an original 1937. The windows were replaced with smoked glass. It has a one piece windshield, there is a hairline crack. It has original style headlights and taillights along with a flush 3rd brake light. It also has a flush fuel door. The stance is great! It has staggered size, highly polished Billet Specialties wheels with Michelin tires.

INTERIOR: Very roomy and comfortable. Up front is a pair of reclining bucket seats. Everything's been upholstered to match: the headliner, door panels and seats. The carpet is nice and has matching mats. The metal trim is painted a satin gray finish. It has a billet instrument bezel with VDO gauges. The AC vents and controls are neatly installed. It has a Secret Audio system. The tilt column has a beautiful wood wheel. The door windows are power. It has seat belts front and back.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Smooth running 350 motor. On top is an endura shine intake with an Edelbrock carb and a Mallory ignition system. It is dressed up with some polished finned aluminum valve covers and air cleaner. It has a modern air conditioning system. The motor runs cool with an aluminum radiator and water pump and dual electric fans. There's an Optima battery with a disconnect switch and new cables.The firewall is very smooth and clean satin black. Under the hood is gloss red. It has chrome hinges and hardware, premium throttle linkage, dipstick tube and a chrome horn.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Plenty of room in the trunk for a few overnight bags or even the golf clubs. It has sound deadener on the floor under the carpet. The side panels are a upolstered. Under the trunk lid is painted and has upholstered inserts. The weather strip is replaced.

UNDERSIDE: The front end was completely replaced with an independent suspension. Chrome tubular control arms, coil over shocks, rack & pinion steering. In back it has leaf springs, gas shocks and a sway bar. Custom bent dual exhaust with polished stainless Magnaflow mufflers. Disc brakes in front, drums in back. It has a power brake booster under the car, brake lines were replaced, e-brake is hooked up. Looking up at the motor it has a chrome oil pan, starter and flywheel cover look new. It has a 700R-4 overdrive automatic with an external cooler. A rebuilt driveshaft goes back to Ford 9 inch rear. Clean, smooth metal floors and frame.

After my inspection I'm impressed with how tidy the car is. It's clean and fits nice. I'm blown away by how nice the body and paint are. It also feels and functions great. Truly ready for show and go!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
