1937 Dodge Business Coupe RestomodSteel body five window coupe 360 CID Mopar Performance V-8 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission with floor-mounted shifter Custom yellow exterior with tan interior Vintage air-conditioning Front power disc brakes Classic Instruments gauges, Lecarra steering wheel, custom pedals, custom headlights and LED taillights Five-spoke American Racing wheels
Business coupes, popular in the 1930s and 1940s make excellent restomod candidates and this one is no exception. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1939 Dodge Business Coupe Restomod that was a recipient of an older frame off restoration.
Originally assembled at Chrysler’s Evansville, Indiana factory, this example is finished in a stunning custom yellow; the paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The six windows are clear and crack-free while the custom headlights with embedded parking lights and LED taillights are in great shape. The car’s body work is straight and solid, its bumpers look fantastic, the engine bay is tidy and the trunk is in good order. The underside of this hot rod is highly finished with lots of detail.
This car rolls on Uniroyal radials, size 205/70R15, surrounding five-spoke American Racing wheels. The tires and wheels look great. Under that vee-shaped hood is a 360 CID Mopar Performance V-8 mated to a Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include vintage air-conditioning (inoperable due to blower not working) and power windows.
Inside, the car has been updated for the modern driver. The tan cloth and vinyl bucket seats are in excellent shape, as is the matching tan carpet. The headliner is in similar great condition. Gauges from Classic Instruments replace the stock instruments within a yellow metal instrument panel and a Lecarra three-spoke steering wheel mounted on a 1970s-era GM column faces the driver and the inner door panels, echoing the interior’s general theme, continue the great look. The mirror glass and shifter look very good and rounding out the interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with CD player.
In 1937, Dodge styling followed that of other Chrysler products. A new split vertical grille offered chrome moldings running down the center, paralleled by body-color panels. Bullet-shaped headlamps flanked the grille and there were no longer any parts hidden in the fender aprons; the horns moved to a location behind the grille. The all-steel body had a chrome drip molding that extended its entire length and exterior door handles curved inward for safety. Recessed dash knobs and flush-mounted gauges continued the emphasis on driver and passenger safety.
Standard equipment included Autolite ignition, hydraulic brakes, all-steel disc wheels, “No-Draft” ventilation, reading lamps over rear windows instead of dome lights, ventipane-type windows and 16-gallon fuel tanks. A new, hypoid rear axle permitted a lower cargo floor as well as a lower driveshaft tunnel.
Competition to this Dodge in 1937 included Chevrolet’s Series GA and GB two-door coupe and Ford’s two-door coupe.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 22,609 miles not actual. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
