With its thorough array of mechanical upgrades paired with an outstanding, well-crafted appearance, this 1937 Ford 5-Window Coupe is one exceptionally slick-looking, great-driving street rod. This is a classic that would be an absolute "must have" for many based on its curb appeal alone and yet its accompanying exemplary street manners and dependable power make it a joy to drive as well.
This Coupe has all the vintage magnetism you'd look for in a car of its niche and its Pearl White exterior is a nice departure from the norm. The paint presents exceedingly well - it's got a glass like finish and nearly radiates when exposed to the sun. From that distinctive angular grille bracketed by custom headlights back to the teardrop-shaped taillight casings, the collection of chrome on board here is in great form. Its largely steel body makes it well-positioned to hold up to many miles of use and the passing of time, and it pairs with a fiberglass hood and fenders that lighten the load just a bit, adding to an already favorable power to weight ratio. This Coupe sits fairly low to the ground for a tastefully aggressive appearance and just the right amount of wheel offset has been dialed into the mix, so you won't find the rubber surrounding the show-stopping custom wheels scraping on the fender wells.
You'd have to do quite a bit of searching to find a custom interior that's got anywhere near the visual impact of this one. It's not just striking but also functional and very comfortable. There's a pair of late model leather bucket seats in place up front with 6-way adjustability that sit over an expanse of well-fitted crme-colored Berber carpet and the custom headliner above ties in perfectly with the two-tone door panels to each side. The dash area just beyond the plushly wrapped steering wheel perched on its chrome tilt column is a showstopper. There's a full complement of parchment-faced Classic Instrument gauges recessed inside to monitor motoring functions, and an underdash climate control system has been added to keep things cool during these summer months. Raise the sloping deck lid and you'll see that the rear storage area is just as well crafted as the rest of the interior, and is surrounded by fabric lined walls and a carpeted floor, with a pass-through door to access the passenger compartment.
The 350 cubic inch V8 standing by under the hood wears a Holley 4-barrel carb over its aluminum intake manifold, and an added mild performance cam provides some extra muscle without wreaking havoc on available vacuum. It pairs with a freshly rebuilt and well-fortified 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission with an overdrive gear to keep the revs low at highway speeds - just imagine the looks you'll get behind the wheel of this attention magnet. A sizable aluminum radiator pairs with an electric fan to keep running temps in check and the road manners on this vintage Ford are outstanding. It rides on a Mustang II front suspension that brings with it power rack and pinion steering, coilovers and power disc brakes that join the additional pair in back for outstanding stopping ability and in back you'll find a 4-link suspension with coilovers of its own to make for a smooth, refined ride. This exceptionally well configured classic rolls on a set of 17" Boyd Coddington wheels that provide a great finishing touch.
This 1937 Ford 5-Window Coupe features off the meter visual impact and its well-appointed interior and vibrant, dependable power really put it in select company. Call today!
