Looking for 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 proven Chevy power, smooth automatic transmission and stunning aesthetics, 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!
Despite a steel-like first impression, the car's 2004 body is high-quality fiberglass supplied by Downs Industries. It takes all the proportions of a '37 Ford coupe and adds traditional modifications, like a 3-inch chop, to achieve a classic street rod look. That rigid shell wears a sleek combination of Purple Pearl 2-stage that's divided by silver Ghost Flames. Aesthetic enhancements begin with flowing fenders, which center a streamlined stainless grille between Ford-branded headlamps. Behind that grille, a forward-tilt hood, which reflects a polished driver's mirror. Below that mirror, remote shaved doors melt into painted running boards. And behind those boards, a shaved, electronic decklid reflects a custom fuel filler and recessed LED tail lamps.
Between the frame rails, a fuel-injected 5.7 liter V8 Fuel Injection provides plenty of reliable motivation. Opening the hood you'll find a well-dressed engine, with plenty of billet pieces to dress up the engine. A set of shorty headers make quick work of spent gases through Flowmaster mufflers for that great sound on the street we all love. At the front of the engine is a polished AC compressor and Alternator, with an aluminum radiator that fronts a big electric puller fan. And top-notch detailing abounds, with color-keyed engine covers and other polished parts complementing an already great looking engine bay.
Bottom-side, this Ford's fully finished body rides on a tough TCI chassis that's been assembled to exacting standards. The proven V8 torques a 3460LE automatic transmission, which spins a Ford 9-inch axle, and a nice set of highway gears 3:23. That sorted drivetrain pushes a fully independent front-half opposite a triangulated rear-half. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of that bagged skeleton, power-assisted calipers squeeze the discs. At the center of the floor, 2.5-inch true-dual pipes breathe through Flow master mufflers. Under the fenders, polished Boyd Coddington wheels turn Toyo 215 /45ZR17 in front, and Nitto NT's 265/35ZR20's in the rear. And everything, from the car's oil pan to its painted fuel tank, is well planned, well-executed and ready to work its magic!
Pop this coupe's lightweight doors and you'll find a custom interior that seems like a great place to pound some pavement. At the center of that cockpit, a half-length console with cup holders, controls for air ride suspension, In front of those thrones, the controls for the AC system. In the dash seats a full array of gauges so you can keep track of what's going under the hood. above billet foot pedals. And in front of the driver, a polished Billet steering wheel spins a half-wrapped rim around a polished, tilting column. custom door trim panels finish things off on the interior.
It doesn't matter whether you're a Ford guy, a MoPar guy or a Chevy guy, this classic transcends barriers and claims universal appeal. The car's handsome looks and spry performance add up to an awesome cruiser that can be driven and enjoyed every day of the spring, summer, and fall.
