Ford Club Coupe 1937 Description

There's still nothing that can compete with a real steel hot rod. Sure, the fiberglass guys have come a long way and make some extremely nice cars, but when you climb behind the wheel of this gorgeous (and very rare) 1937 Ford club coupe and close the door, there's a feeling to the way everything works that no fiberglass body could ever duplicate. The car itself is extremely well finished throughout, and offers an aluminum 4.6 liter modular motor under the hood, just in case the beautiful dark red paint wasn't quite getting your attention.With equal parts luxury and performance, this cool Art-Deco Ford was obviously built at great expense with no corners cut. The original steel body remains 100% intact, which means no chopped top and no shaved trim, just authentic and handsome Ford design that has remained popular for three-quarters of a century. The five-window body style was the only coupe Ford offered in 1937, with the 3-window going the way of the dodo, but the club coupe was still quite rare due to its price premium over the standard coupe. It retains the classic profile, with a long hood and rounded rear deck, and despite the modifications, its Ford DNA is unmistakable. Bodywork is first rate, with great finish quality and better fit than even factory fresh cars managed in 1937, and they obviously sweated the details when they were putting it together. The paint glows the way it should, a result of a lot of hand labor, and it's highlighted by a simple pinstripe encircling the body. Details like the peaked fenders show crisp lines and attention to detail, all hallmarks of quality workmanship. The lovely tan leather interior shows some of its high-end DNA with sumptuous power leather buckets and every luxury feature you can imagine. Matching door panels have been beautifully sculpted to give them some interest, and they, too suggest a more upscale vehicle. The original dash is full of big round gauges from Classic Instruments, with things like the radio and controls for the A/C system cleverly hidden out of sight. A tilt column has been neatly disguised to look as retro as possible, and is topped with a banjo-style leather-wrapped wheel that fits perfectly. In back, there's a large, neatly upholstered bench seat that was a hallmark of the club coupe, and there's a mini console overhead to match the one on the floor that has a pair of cup holders. The trunk is just as well-finished, with matching carpets and simple but stylish side panels. Under that pointed hood you'll find a 4.6 liter SOHC V8 from a 2002 Lincoln Town Car. With a custom cover, it's hard to recognize, but it has a distinctive sound and thanks to OEM engineering, it's bulletproof reliable and always works properly. Fuel injection means it starts quickly and idles well and it's still torquey enough to spin the rear tires almost at will. Thanks to a matching AOD transmission, it just loafs along at highway speeds. Underneath, a beautifully finished chassis is from Vision Street, and the workmanship of the A-arm suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering, and 4-wheel disc brakes mean it rides and handles like a modern car. There's a 9-inch Ford rear end with 3.25 gears inside and there are sway bars at both ends to tighten up handling. Polished E-T wheels offer a traditional big-n-little combination of 205/60/15 front and 235/75/15 rear BFG tires to give it just the right rake.Originally built for a high-profile NASCAR crew chief with no expense spared, this awesome southern 1937 Ford needs nothing but a new home.
