1937 Ford Sedan
1937 Ford Two Door Sedan
The Art Deco Style was all the rage in 1937, and Ford designers seized the moment with the slant-back and humpback sedans. A road to hood V grille, teardrop headlights, split rear window, curvaceous rear lines with two tiny red oval angled taillights were the inspirations taken from the movement. The slant-back was hailed as one of the most beautiful designs of the decade.
Dateline Kansas: the rural areas of Kansas abound that if one looks carefully enough, many finds can be dug up within the off the beaten path nooks and crannies of every county. For consignment we bring you one of those “barn finds” hidden away out of sight, out of mind since 1953!
With the passage of forgotten time written all over the exterior of this car, rust, patina, rough surfaces and broken dreams abound over the original styled lines of this beautiful Ford. This car must be looked at as a blank canvas waiting for an interpretation to be put towards it in whatever way. Many parts not specifically mounted on this car, do abound in the spare parts bins that accompany this find. This appears to be a project dreamed of, however once started may have realized the potential was out of reach. So not installed exterior wise we have new glass, new window channels, and overall complete body panels. A few areas of rust through are noted in the photos, however it is structurally there for the restoration.
Mostly bare bones structure, consigner states that used seat covers, and padding are in the accompanying bins, but not installed. This holds true for the inside door panels, which the ones in the bins have much to be desired. Taking a peek through the unrestored Banjo style steering wheel we can note an intact dash with original gauges. Plenty of missing parts though throughout.
Perhaps the furthest along, consigner states that engine will run if hooked up to a fuel source, and a battery. It presents as a 303ci Oldsmobile motor (from approximately 1950). It has a tune up kit installed, a hi torque starter, new water pump, rebuilt 12V generator, and voltage regulator. Attached is a Borg Warner 5-speed manual transmission, new clutch, pressure plate, and throughout bearing.
Consigner states that a totally rebuilt suspension including a new posi front spring assembly, shackles and king pins. A 47 truck rear is now installed. Brake lines and master cylinder are seen, as well as shoes and rims are finished. No driveshaft is present as well as a gas tank, and these are not in the current “bins”.
A project that goes with the saying “Stay positive, all other choices are pointless punishments to your psyche.” Think of yourself as the artist and this is your new sculpture.
