1937 Ford Fordor Sedan VIN 183853620

This car sat in a barn in PA partially disassembled for about 20 years before I acquired it in 1978 from my uncle. When I moved it to MA, the first thing I did was remove the body and lightly sand blast the entire frame and spray paint it with Rust oleum to protect it. And there it sat…for years. Now nearly 40 years later it’s time to pass it along to someone who will make it was it once was as I have no time to work on it.

Pretty much all the pre-war cars are gone so consider this a pre-pre-war car. There aren’t many 37’s around in this condition.

This is truly a unique car with tons of cool features and nearly ALL the original parts making it very restorable. Almost every part can be purchased these days, unlike the days when I attempted this back in the 70's - 80’s.

While the car itself has been inside and outside over the past 40 years, it has been fairly well preserved save for the animals eating some of the interior, but LeBaron Bonney Company in Amesbury, MA can deal with that.

The engine and all its components has been stored in doors all these years. The interior (seats) were just put back into the car for show a few months ago…though the squirrels are starting to do a job on it. Egge Machine Company inSanta Fe Springs, CAcan make you what you need.

I’d love to see this car restored to its original condition rather than to see it chopped and souped up….but that’s the buyer’s choice.

I have nearly all the components to this car plus several extras including some of the original engine tools and lots of manuals and data. Many more photos available upon request.

The car can be seen by appointment only in North Andover, MA
