1937 Ford Hot Rod
HISTORY: This car was built over last 12 years by a good friend and master mechanic. Approximately 2,000 hours were spent doing a bare metal build on a very solid car. I watched this car being built over the years and saw the work put into it. This car is done right with old school methods, parts, and real steel. This 37 Ford was in a barn for 30 years. In the 50’s it had an Oldsmobile engine. The odometer shows only 20,000 miles The current owner purchased the car about 12 years ago.
