This classic Ford starts; runs and drives beautifully with more than enough power to get on the freeway and keep up with modern traffic. With tight suspension and good handling, it's shoulders down when cruising. A crate 350 engine and 350TH automatic transmission were installed a few years ago along with a Ford rear-end that's perfectly geared for relaxed freeway driving. It has disc brakes up front, drums in the rear and rides on steel wheels wrapped in newer, classic white wall tires. Truly a reliable '37 that successfully completed a trip to Vancouver and back for a Ford V8 club meet up. You can take this one anywhere.
The exterior looks nice with lacquer paint on a razor straight, rust-free, all steel body. A brand new top at a cost of nearly $6,000 was recently installed and the fit and seal are excellent. The interior is attractive and comfortable giving this classic Ford such a period look. This is a great looking car.
