Vehicle Description

1937 Ford Other Street Rod

Only 1,282 miles since a $125,000+ build. From one of the most pristine and impressive collections of pro street show cars in the country. The best of the best parts- Minotti body, Bill Mitchell motor, TCI frame, leather upholstery etc. Very meticulously detailed. Whether you want to bring home the tall trophies from the shows, tear up a drag strip or enjoy an exhilarating cruise- it will do them all!
EXTERIOR: Very desirable Minotti 3 window body. The chopped roof and clean lines and this great stance is amazing. It looks like it's going fast standing still. The body is all smooth, no handles or trim. Doors and trunk open by remote, the hood tilts forward. Painted a slick Ferrari red. It has tear drop headlights with glass lenses and flush mount taillights. The grill and side grills are from Grill Art. New smoked glass. 15x18.5 Mickey Thompson tires in back and 15x6 in front. Polished Team lll wheels. The license plate magically folds away when the car is shut off so it does not distract from the car's beauty.
INTERIOR: Low profile 6 point roll cage provides protection without being in the way. It has been wrapped with removable covers. It also features a Halon 1211 fire extinguisher system with a release handle on the console. There is a Cheetah shifter on the floor and chrome e-brake handle. It has new seat frames and springs that have custom made cushions and hand stiched, soft leather upholstery. The black leather dash has a set of Carbon fiber gauges, billet a/c vents and controls, a shift light and a Sony stereo system with cd and remotes. A brushed aluminum tilt column has a leather wrapped Momo steering wheel. The entire inside is sculpted and upholstered. It has retractable seatbelts with shoulder belts. It is roomy and comfortable.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Show quality. Full of chrome and polished parts. The engine bay is slick red and at the heart of it is a Bill Mitchell Hard Core 540 cubic inch Merlin ll motor making 630 hp- 630 lbs of torque. Inside it has Weisco forged pistons, 4 bolt mains, 4130 forged crank, Manley I beam rods, solid lifter cam, Speed Pro lifters, chrome moly pushrods and a true roller timing chain. On top it has Merlin Grumpy Jenkins rectangular port aluminum heads and roller rockers, Merlin aluminum intake with an 870 Holley carb and an HEI ignition system. It has a premium fuel delivery system- 1,000 hp Aeromotive fuel pump and regulator. Custom-made ceramic coated headers. A big aluminum radiator with a shroud and a polished overflow bottle keeps it running cool. It has a modern power steering with a remote polished reservoir and stainless braided hoses. The air conditioning compressor is polished, the a/c and heater hoses are braided stainless.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Power trunk release. The entire inside is carpeted and upholstered including the bottom of the trunk lid. There is a door that opens up to a storage area and chrome extinguisher bottle. The fuel filler is in the trunk.
UNDERSIDE: It is so meticulous underneath. Everything is neatly installed, the gloss red is as glossy as the body, the hardware is stainless. It has a TCI pro street frame, narrowed in back to accommodate those huge tires. In front it has stainless tubular control arms, polished coil over adjustable gas shocks and a rack & pinion steering. In back it has a chrome moly tubular 4 link system with panhard bar. Wilwood disc brakes at all four wheels with polished billet calipers, stainless lines and hat mount parking brake. Polished rotors and hub in front. Custom aluminum fuel tank (estimated 28 gallons) with billet cap and roll over valve. It has stainless covered teflon flex fuel lines with stainless pressed aircraft fittings. Bottom of the motor has extra capacity Milodon oil pan and Powermaster high torque starter. Ultra Bell scatter shield attaches to the Turbo 400 automatic. It is performance built with manual reverse valve body, Turbo Action 3,500 stall and a dash mounted trans brake. Painted driveshaft with safety loop. Currie 9 inch rear with back brace, 4.11 Detroit Locker, steel billet pinion yoke and Summers Bros 35 spline hardened axles. The ceramic coated exhaust is custom made with fat pipes and exits in front of each rear tire. There are custom made terminals and plug in cables to jump the battery. It is really impressive under this car.
This gorgeous, no expense spared hot rod is an incredible value. If you want a car with real muscle, this is a beast. This beast can be tame too, go enjoy a Sunday cruise. You might want to wait til church lets out though!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
