1937 Ford Custom Roadster 350 LT1 V8 - Hot Rod For Sale (Click Here)


And now for something completely different, and cool! This award winning ’37 Ford sports a sleek removable hardtop, fuel injected LT1 power and impeccable detailing all thanks to its pro build—read on for details on this classic hot rod for sale.

Bond’s Rod Shop in Olive Hill, KY, built the car from the OZE body up, and the results are stunning. This car’s finished everywhere in PPG’s Radiance Collection Inferno Red and Corvette Beige—and we mean everywhere! Red not only beautifies the outer body, it also coats the chassis, floor pans, suspension and drive train. The two colors together find themselves inside every compartment as if the body is translucent and you’re looking at the outside—it’s correct down to the pin striping! The removable top is done as well as the rest of the body, which is saying something considering how straight the panels are. Reproduction headlights flank the cool billet grille up front for a punch of shine on the otherwise dichromatic wrapper. It’s an understatement to call the paint scheme well thought out, as it won the "2005 PPG Outstanding Use of Color Award" which is given to the vehicles that best demonstrate outstanding use of color, design, gloss, and execution of the paint job at the 2005 Street Rod Nationals in Louisville!

Open the hood the find the highly detailed and tune port injected 350ci mill. That’s a custom fabbed intake cover on top, and it’s color matched to the body for a subtle look. Billet pulleys and accessories on the serpentine belt system are all polished in true street rod fashion. The hood hinges are billet as are the caps on the polished aluminum reservoirs. There’s not much else to see is everything that could be tucked away, has been! Check out the paint in the engine compartment, too—how slick is that??

Check out the super detailed chassis. The Williams Street Rod Shop chassis hosts an Air Ride Technologies suspension at all four corners, an independent front suspension up front and a 9” hung on a four link out back. There are disc brakes run by a power booster at all four corners, rack and pinion steering with power assist up front and a rebuilt, modern 4L60E overdrive automatic transmission in the tunnel. New fuel lines run from the stainless steel tank out back to the motor while more stainless lines carry brake fluid. Shorty headers feed a 2.5” dual exhaust system with Flowmaster Super 44’s and stainless tips give off a great sound that’s just right. Power hits the ground thanks to chrome plated American Racing Torq Thrust II wheels wrapped in 195/50ZR16 front and 295/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires on the rear. With the overdrive transmission and the 3.55 gears out back this rod is at home on the highway as it is on the show field!

Pop open either suicide door with the included remote and have a seat. You’re sitting on super high tech Ultraleather surfaces, which look and feel exactly like leather but cleans up like vinyl. That’s the PERFECT combination with the light cream upholstery, and anyone who’s tried to clean white leather knows what we’re talking about! High end builders fill the interiors for private jets and yachts from the stuff, so don’t think this is low rent material! Creature comforts abound from the Kenwood CD player in the dash to a complete Vintage Air heat and A/C combination unit to power windows to the tilt wheel. A pair of Classic Instruments gauge pods give you all the information you need, the Lokar shifter and pedal set and Billet Specialties steering wheel offer control with comfort for your inputs and the reclining seats ensure your comfort. The upper door panels and dashboard continue the paint scheme inside, and the cream upholstery looks fantastic next to it. The glass is excellent, new and scratch free. The rear panel holds a pair of 6.5” speakers in custom grilles allowing plenty of sound with style. There’s a full headliner above which matches the carpet below—this is a world class interior in a world class ‘rod. Best yet, the interior looks even more impressive with the top off!

With its award winning finish, modern mechanicals and attention to detail this is a true show and go ride! Beautiful with its top on or off this ’37 stands out!
