800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1937 Ford Minotti Coupe loves to be different in all the best ways. It gives you a unique extra-sleek exterior, a show-ready shine on the V8 power, and a leather-lined A/C interior that could make some new luxury cars jealous. So it's time to be the envy of everyone.
It's hard not to get excited about a custom this slick. The fiberglass body was expertly crafted by people who understand how flow works. That's why the polished grille seamlessly transitions to the flush-mounted lights. The crease on the hood frames the two-piece windshield. The hood line creates a styling element that runs the entire profile until it blends with the rear wheel arch. And the shape of the rear helps form the taillight design. This is thoughtfulness on display, and thoughtfulness is sexy. That's especially true when you wrap it all in a black that has so much luster that they could eliminate most of the chrome for a very modern appearance. But all great hot rods have brightwork, and so this one reserves it to show off the right touches of vintage fun. You can see the hot rod style hairpin front suspension. There are King Bee-style additional headlights mounted up front. And the polished alloys are classic-style Billet Specialties units with a nice 15/17-inch front/rear aggressive stance to emphasize where the power meets the pavement.
Inside is a level of comfort you'd want in a modern car. It starts with the cashmere-colored leather bucket seats that have modern bolstering for all-day comfort. The side panels, rear storage area, headliner, and the grip on the Billet Specialties steering wheel match this color for a true uniform feeling. Even the trunk has been expertly upholstered. The dash looks fantastic with an exterior-matching slick black and a premium wood insert. And we always like to see a full set of gauges done with classic markings, so we can stay fully informed while still looking vintage. A premium custom like this is not only supposed to look great, but it also offers you the best in comfort. That's why you have great features like power windows, a tilt steering column, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning.
The motor has plenty of polished components to be show-worthy, and hot rod fans will love to point out the rarely-seen Inglese valve covers. At its heart is a 350 cubic-inch crate motor. It inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power and rumble as shorty headers feed the dual exhaust. And you'll also spot plenty of tidy and worthwhile supporting components, like billet hood hinges, a billet distributor, serpentine belts, and an aluminum radiator. But more than just a great motor, you'll need to view the undercarriage photos to fully appreciate this build. There you'll spot great hardware like the strong TCI chassis, four-link rear suspension with adjustable coilovers, and a Currie 9-inch rear end. Add in a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, modern tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this looker is also an easy driver.
This is a rare build from 2007, titled as a 2007 kit car, and there are barely over 7k miles on it. So while this has a street rod style, you have a distinction and sleekness that comes from a premium product that has spent far more time tucked away in the garage. It's time to enjoy quite a unique '37 coupe. Call now!
