A Car that Screams Old School Cool with New School Rule..
Streamlining was the hot new design trend in the 1930's. Ford patterned their 1937 lineup after the success of the 1936 Lincoln Zepher and people loved it! The '37 Ford model lineup was a home run for the Ford Motor Company. They were styled with an Art Decco design and joined a host of products - from trains to toasters. Its V-shaped grille slices the air like a boat bow parts water. Headlights blend smoothly into the front fenders, a first in the day. Rear fenders hug the body and even the taillights are streamlined.
This particular car and model redone to original specs but with new school components and is a rare offering. You'll not only be taken back in time, but the journey will be a lot more enjoyable knowing you're going to make it home. This offering is the perfect entry into the Classic Car market at a very favorable price point.
This 1937 recently underwent an extensive overhaul.
Interiorwas completely redone in November 2016 using actual factory photographs. Lebaron-Bonney custom interior fabrics were used and is authentic to the vehicle. Dash and window garnishments have been newly wood-grained and look fabulous. All windows are tight and properly sealed. New front windshield (clear glass) and spare (tinted) included. Radio dial is original, but non-working. Speaker is a battery powered blue tooth with hidden wires into glove box. This allows for speaker to be charged and can run music from iPhone, iPod, MP3 player or any blue tooth device. Speaker grill is an original and correct for this vehicle Philco with speaker fabric an exact replica. Seats are correct but hi grade foam was used instead of cotton for a more comfortable ride.

QUESTIONS: The car runs and drive extremely well. It's just fun to drive. It accelerates incredibility well and handles corners better than when it was new. I have skinny tires and feel safe at 60 - 65 mph. As with any 80-year-old person or car, there are minor flaws. I'd be happy to answer them to the best of my knowledge. I did not do the mechanical portion of this car, just the interior and exterior restoration. I have pictures of my portion of this project along with a moving vehicle video if requested. Feel free to send your vehicle inspectors. Appointments are necessary as vehicle is stored. TEXTING IS THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT ME OUTSIDE OF eBay email. 702-595-6205
