This 1937 Ford Business Coupe was made to be enjoyed

The fuel-injected V8, four-wheel disc brakes, and overdrive transmission are perfect for driving. And the interior is loaded with air conditioning and all the right amenities. Plus, the design has the kind of sleek look from every angle to tell people a true custom has arrived on the scene.

It’s a special kind of car that gives you two tones of gold. It’s just the right change in hues to make people take notice while giving this steel-bodied car a full precious metal feeling. A lot of extra care was taken in giving the panels an excellent fit and finish. The consignor even states that the gold flake flames used to separate the two-tone was a $5,500 investment all on its own. The package creates the kind of striking appearance that’s absolutely unforgettable. And when the paint looks so good, they could forego brightwork in the usual places like deleting bumpers and painting the grille. These are part of the unique details that make this a distinct street machine. You also see it in the sport mirrors, LED brake lights, wide chrome dual exhaust tips, and polished Budnik wheels with a 16/17-inch front/rear stagger. But no matter how much you upgraded it, the rounded fenders, teardrop headlights, and long trunk will always remind people that this started life as an iconic classic made in Henry Ford steel.

Inside is a nice blend of vintage style with the right upgrades. That’s why the seat has a classic bench bottom, but there are individual seatbacks and armrests for true personal comfort. And the dash has a beautifully done classic wood-style tone. There are thoughtful and quality details, too, like the full carpeting, working dome light, and the doors done with the same tuck and roll as the seat. And this classic has modern comforts, like power windows, power locks, an Alpine AM/FM/CD/XM stereo, cruise control, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. A car like this is built with the driver in mind. That’s why you get a Lokar floor shifter, a three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column, power steering, and crisp VDO gauges.

The gold flames of the exterior were even done around the engine bay, so you know it was made to show off. Plus, you not only have the color-matched inner walls, but also engine components like the valve covers and intake were painted to match. You’re looking at a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 small block with the power and consistency of fuel injection. And a nice set of headers adds power and bass as it feeds the dual exhaust. It makes for a great cruising powerhouse, and the full package really makes this a driver. You have upgrades like a Mustang II-style independent front end, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.

This was built to be a true driver, and that’s why the sale even comes with a front bra to protect the paint from stones and debris in the road. It’s all part of a thoughtful and stunning package that makes for a cut-above custom coupe.
