This classic 1937 Ford is a professionally built custom which mixes
the best of hot rod appearance with the streetability of a
well-tuned muscle car. Beneath its crowd gathering body, you'll
find a comfortable custom interior, powerful 350 cubic inch V8,
performance suspension, and upgraded air ride system. If you're a
hardcore street rod fan who's been looking for the perfect custom
to show off at the next cruise night, AND enjoy on the open road,
your search is over!
This hot rod is a full custom build, and you know it the moment you lay eyes on the super glossy paint. The two-tone silver and burgundy are the perfect night and day contrast that unite through a modern clearcoat to give them an even shine as the sunlight rolls over both colors. Plus, the blue pinstripe and custom black graphic that runs the entire profile really heightens the aggressive streak. The whole car has a super smooth attitude that really makes this classic look great in modern times. It starts up front where the traditionally chrome grille still looks bright but now is painted silver to seamlessly match the body. The bumpers have been removed with such an expert hand that everyone will forget they ever existed. The chopped body give it a lower, wind-cheating appearance. And the final touch is shaving off the door and trunk handles and replacing them with well-hidden poppers. But because this is a true American classic, it isn't completely devoid of chrome. You get it on those bright ARE torque thrust wheels that are staggered in size for an aggressive stance.
Open the doors of this killer classic and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that perfectly combines the exterior's silver with comfortable gray tweed. This one not only has bucket seats for the front passengers, but also for the rear ones, too. That's a great touch that will have friends wanting a ride as well as people marveling over this custom creation. Other pieces that are out to impress are the power windows, power locks, modern AM/FM/CD stereo, and an artful dash with the full set of gauges running all the way across it. But the driver is the one who gets the best treats. The banjo-style chrome steering wheel and Lokar shifter are the best in classic comfort, and they help hint at something special under the hood.
Lift the hood to reveal a powerful and reliable Chevy 350 cubic-inch V8. On a car this cool, you not only get a bright air topper and valve covers, but also plenty of performance enhancements to back up this custom's speedy appearance. It includes a Quick Fuel Slayer four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Accel HEI Super Coil, aluminum radiator, and headers that add power as they feed the rumbling dual exhaust. It reliably gets power to the road with the stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission feeding the Ford 9-inch rear end. But to fully understand the level of work in this car, take a look at the undercarriage photos. There you'll see a strong custom frame that has great upgrades like the Heidts performance front suspension and fully adjustable air ride system. Out on the road, you're going to love the thoughtful additions to this custom like the power steering and upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
You're looking at a total package of easy cruising and impressive presentation. Best of all, there's less than 3,500 miles on the whole build. You really can't ask for a more impressive custom car, and you certainly can't build one this cool for anything near our list price. Don't miss out, call now!
