Want a super cool cruiser that’s ready to roll? How about one with some of the best vintage styling ever draped over two doors and four tires? If the answer is a resounding “YES”, this 1937 Ford Coupe is exactly the car you’ve been searching for! With its reliable Chevrolet V8, smooth automatic transmission and rich black on tan color combination, this custom is an ideal classic for anyone who enjoys exploring the open road. If you’re looking to add a little spice to your weekend routine, here’s the perfect way to take Sunday drives to a whole new level!

BODYWORK/TRIM

With their wind-swept design and classic good looks, late-‘30s Fords have always been highly desirable cars. Not surprisingly, gearheads, chop shops and 70 years’ worth of dedicated fans have elevated them to one of hot rodding’s greatest cultural icons. And this awesome coupe has, with the help of a thorough, frame-off restoration, been transformed into one super slick street rod. The car’s build began with a complete tear down of its rock-solid fuselage. Once that fuselage’s sinuous panels were massaged to near perfection, glossy black base was married to a thick layer of clear. And today, this sizzling classic is a fully sorted boulevard king that’s likely caused more than its fair share of slackjaw stumbles and clumsily missed steps!

The beauty of a well-done street rod is often found in the simplicity of its execution. In a nod to the hobby’s old school hot rodding roots, the best cars are usually topped with a stripped down, all business body that emphasizes their purpose-built, high performance nature. So, when you craft a first class offering like this sweet ’37 Ford, the best thing to do is let its original curves do the talking and simply enhance what’s already there. Our enhancements begin with flowing fenders, which center a re-chromed NOS grille between modified headlamps and a chopped bumper. Behind that grille, a slender hood founds traditional ornamentation in front of tinted glass, small wipers and classy chrome frames. Below that glass, solid doors hang stylish handles and simple mirrors above vulcanized running boards. And behind those boards, a factory bumper reflects old school tail lamps and straight exhaust tips.

ENGINE

In the auto enthusiast world, there are few bigger faux pas than something that promises performance but doesn’t deliver. “It looks fast” just doesn’t cut it with real car guys, so the storied flathead that might traditionally power this coupe has officially been swapped for a 392 cubic inch Chevrolet small block. At the top of that big-bore mill, a polished Street & Performance ram jet mixes wind supplied by a small filter with fuel that’s piped through modern electronic injection. That air/fuel mixture floods cast iron heads, which hang polished and milled valve covers over coated block hugger headers. At the back of those headers, what appears to be a traditional points distributor sequences spark through loomed Taylor plug wires. At the front of those wires, billet pulleys spin a polished alternator opposite a modern AC compressor. In front of that compressor, a beefy radiator circulates coolant around a big electric puller fan. And small items, like polished breathers, trick dipsticks, Lokar accelerator componentry and a Street & Performance pressure gauge, highlight the builder’s acute attention to detail.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Bottom side, this Ford’s fully finished body rides on a modern Total Cost Involved chassis that’s been assembled to exacting standards. The proven small block torques a TPI Performance-branded 700R4 4-speed, which spins an LPW-branded 9-inch axle. That custom drivetrain pushes a familiar Mustang II front half opposite a polished 4-bar rear half. Turns come courtesy
of modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to polished, power-assisted calipers, which squeeze vented discs at all four corners. At the edges of the floor, 2.5-inch, true-dual exhaust breathes through coated pipes and throaty turbo mufflers. At the corners of the chassis, highly polished wheels turn 205/60R15 BF Goodrich Comp T/As in front of 275/60R17 BF Goodrich Comp T/As. And everything, from the car’s finned transmission cooler and CVR starter to its braided fluid lines and polished stainless fuel tank, is well planned, well executed and ready to work its magic!

INTERIOR

Pop this coupe’s lightweight doors and you’ll find a clean leather interior that’s much nicer than traditional factory fodder. At ground level, brown carpet weaves a thick cover beneath stainless-trimmed foot pedals and a polished hand brake. At the center of that carpet, a leather-wrapped Glide throne makes passengers feel like royalty. In front of that throne, a rich, wood-grain dash hangs a full array of Classic Instruments gauges beside Vintage Air climate control. At the sides of that dash, custom door panels sport contoured pulls and small, chrome handles. Above those panels, a leather headliner stretches tightly around modern Sony audio. In front of the driver, a banjo-style steering wheel spins a leather-wrapped rim around a polished tilt column. And behind the passengers, a surprisingly large trunk founds clean carpet in a plush leather frame.
