Pickups are all the rage today, but the guy who built this neat little ALL STEEL 1937 Ford has owned it for twenty years! As a result, it's fully sorted, beautifully built, and ready to cruise this summer with little more than a tank of gas and a pair of sunglasses. With a coat of brilliant Ferrari red on its working-class bodywork, this Ford stands out in a big way. The steel body panels were stripped to bare metal and refinished from there, using time and care to get it right. The bed is all-new and has just the right proportions for the slick hauler, plus a gorgeous oak floor with a recessed fuel filler door in it. Nice! And while Ford motor cars were evolving into aerodynamic pieces of Art-Deco, the trucks kept their rugged, barrel-shaped grille and separate fenders that make them attractive pieces of 1930s Americana. And for a truck, this one fits together beautifully, with doors that close with gentle pressure instead of a slam, flowing fenders with integral rubber treads on the running boards, and classic stand-up headlights. Along the way, the bumpers were shaved, they added a rear roll pan with custom taillights, and gave it just enough bright chrome trim to make it sparkle. This is a very good-looking little truck. All traces of this truck's blue-collar working days are long gone inside, where vinyl and rubber surfaces have given way to brand new tan leather buckets, matching carpets, and lots of comfort and convenience features. The door panels are simple, which work well with the truck's look, but they're a lot dressier than the original steel panels and help control both noise and heat. Power windows have been added, which is always a welcome feature, and the dash is now full of Auto Meter Pro Comp gauges. A/C with vents neatly integrated into the dash itself makes it a very pleasant place to be for long road trips, and this is one of those rare rods where the makeover actually made the seating position better and more comfortable than stock. Neat finishing details include the leather boots on the shifter and E-brake, original-style round brake pedal, and windshield wipers overhead, as original. A late-model Corvette donated its 350 cubic inch L98 powerplant, and it moves the bright red truck with alacrity. Reliable as a hammer, the L98 excels in torque production and makes a lot of sense in a pickup truck that can still earn its keep on a Saturday afternoon. The engine bay is tidy, and lifting the hood reveals good service access and an OEM look that suggests a lot of care went into the build. Accessories are mounted up high and tight to the block, the exhaust system tucks out of the way, and the new independent front suspension with disc brakes makes it handle in a very un-truck-like way. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission makes cruising effortless and drives a 10-bolt rear hanging on monoleaf rear springs. The right stance gives it a very hot-rod look, and shiny billet wheels with 225/45/17 front and 255/45/17 rear BFGoodrich radials accentuate the rake. Clean, fully functional, and complete with build receipts, this is a turn-key truck with more features than we can list here. Call today for all the details!
