For Sale: 1937 Ford Custom in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This is a very clean, all steel real 1937 rumble seat Ford cabriolet. Collector owned the last 22 years. It retains its vintage looks but has some nice upgrades: 12 volt, hydraulic brakes, electric fan and fuel pump etc. This isn't just a relic to look at, this is a car you can go drive!

EXTERIOR: Rust free all metal body and fenders. It is straight as an arrow. I did not find any bubbles, rust or body work. It was repainted and has a mirror finish. There are some nicks and scratches that were touched up. The bumpers and grill were rechromed. It has a rare locking hood ornament. Glass Ford script headlight lenses. Turn signals were added in the headlights and are part of the taillights. The running boards have original type rubber coverings. The convertible top is a tan Haartz cloth in excellent shape. It is a cabriolet which means it has roll up windows. The stance is great. Reproduction rims are smaller in front, the white wall tires are also smaller in front.

INTERIOR: The seat, door panels, visors and behind the seat is reupholstered. The dash is painted slick. The gauges and knobs are very clean. It has optional radio, heater and clock. Correct rubber mat on the floor. The V-8 logo is used throughout.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The Flathead V-8 was completely rebuilt has period performance upgrades. Offenhauser intake and finned heads, Fenton headers, dual carbs. This motor purrs! It never gets hot, upgraded with an electric fan. It has reproduction hoses and clamps. It is also upgraded with an alternator. Everything looks clean and proper.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is a factory rumble seat car. It opens easily, it has original V-8 logo handle. It has original step plates to get in. The seat is reupholstered to match the interior. It is also lined and upholstered inside with a rubber mat.

UNDERSIDE: Upront it has a Pete and Jake's drop axle. The steering and suspension components look clean. The brakes have been upgraded to hydraulic instead of mechanical. It has a stainless dual exhaust system. Bottom of the motor is clean, the 3-speed trans looks fresh. Overall appears to be very solid with a satin black finish.

It has a look; I love the stance. It has the desirable improvements that make it a better driver. Nothing to be ashamed of here, I like it a lot!

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. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
