DOWNS BODY '37, 350 LTI V8, 700R4, 4-DISCS, COILOVERS, LOTS OF POWER OPTIONS!!
Technology is wonderful. Take, for instance, this remarkable 1937 Ford cabriolet, whose very body is the product of modern fiberglass techniques rather than ancient steam-powered presses. It's full of state-of-the-art entertainment and comfort systems, making it a thoroughly modern car that merely looks vintage.
The body is by Downs Fiberglass, and fairly accurately captures the styling and sleek art-deco design of the 1937 Fords. Sure, it's been stretched here, sectioned there, and lowered all around, but there's no denying the Blue Oval DNA running through this car's veins. As a fiberglass piece, the sky's the limit in terms of modifications, so all the trim is gone, the grille is smoothly tapered into the fenders, and there are no pesky bumpers or door handles to deal with. Even the running boards are smooth and sleek. Working with fiberglass is easy and the results are spectacular here, with gorgeous bright red paint that gives the Ford a high visibility look that's ultra-clean. Finish quality is excellent and thanks to the sturdy construction of the high-quality Downs body, it feels substantial going down the road. Frenched LED taillights, a nicely integrated high-mounted stop lamp, and a license plate frame that disappears when you turn off the key all add to the smooth overall look. A real folding convertible top is finished in tan canvas and gives the sleek convertible a slightly formal look and the tight seal of a coupe.
Opulent is the only way to describe the beautifully crafted interior by Paul Atkins. Basically, you can consider the beautiful, striking bodywork as simply the packaging for what is one of the most amazing interiors we've ever seen. Custom leather buckets are artfully stitched and sublimely comfortable, with every surface around them wrapped in pleasing materials and colors. The custom-built dashboard is full of silver-faced instruments in a very cool floating pod, and features like Vintage Air A/C are included. The billet steering wheel is wrapped in matching cream leather, as is the headliner in the custom lift-off Carson hardtop. The centerpiece of the interior has to be the entertainment system, which incorporates an AM/FM/CD head unit and a bunch of speakers artfully stashed throughout the inner panels. The trunk is finished to the same standards, with all the circuitry and other working parts neatly hidden behind removable panels that are works of art all by themselves.
The engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevy LT1 V8 that's built for comfort and reliability, as well as good looks. There's plenty of shiny billet aluminum and chrome, as well as color-matched componentry to keep with the car's overall theme. A big Walker aluminum radiator keeps it cool without effort, and with OEM fuel injection, it's reliable and easy to drive with no headaches. A tubular A-arm front suspension with coil overs and disc brakes means that it rides and handles like a modern car, and a heavy-duty 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 9-inch Ford rear end mean that breakage should be a non-issue. Everything underneath is, of course, color-matched as well, and those gorgeous Budnik wheels look spectacular wearing 205/55/16 front and 255/50/17 rear performance radials.
Sometimes standing out means simply doing it better than the next guy. Artfully finished and full of innovative features, this '37 Ford delivers in every way that matters. Call today!
