Take a close look at the photos and you’ll see whoever built this Ford went over it with a fine tooth comb. The fact it has won several shows, including snagging best of show at Good Guys, is also a testament to this Ford turning even the most critical heads.
That beige body is as smooth as can be, with details removed or gone over until the presentation is spot-on. A minimalist approach means scant brightwork, which you really only see on the headlight bezels, wiper arms, convertible top frame, and side mirrors. Coddington wheels help add some subtle flair. As they say, the details are what really count.
A custom frame which has been fully detailed so it shows excellently provides a solid base for this car. Coil overs and disc brakes for all four corners helps this vehicle to corner and stop well enough you’ll actually enjoy driving it on the road.
You’ll love showing off the port-injected Chevrolet 350ci V8, whether it’s by popping the hood or smoking the rear tires. The engine bay shows incredibly well, thanks to “37 Ford” written in script, covers either chromed or painted to match the body, and plenty of other excellent details. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission makes driving this street rod simple, plus this car can really move.
The interior is also done up nicely. The dash is fully digital, so this is for all intents and purposes a fairly modern car with those vintage looks you love. A Coddington steering wheel matches the wheels, while the custom-made canvas top provides shelter if the weather takes a sudden turn.
This is definitely a turn-key build you don’t need to mess with in the least. If you’re looking for something to show and have some fun driving right now, you could do far worse. If you’re interested in this Ford, it’s being sold through Vintage Planet, so contact the dealer to make an offer or ask additional questions about the vehicle.
