1937 Ford Other Pickups V85An absolutely vintage look, the desirable flathead V8 power, and the right investments to keep this a great driving classic all headline this 1937 Ford Pickup. It makes for one of those well-done total packages for those who enjoy a true vintage pickup experience.
The khaki gray paint sets the tone nicely for this 1930s machine. It also really makes you take note of the glossy black that highlights the artful crease in the cab and the big curves of the fenders. It has the ideal pre-war vibe with the tall grille, two-piece windshield, and real wood in the truck bed. There are nice details, too, like the red pinstripe that runs down the hood and encircles the cab. This matches nicely with the red wheel wheels. And speaking of the wheels, it looks absolutely iconic with the two-piece trim and wide whitewalls. The full package is even on the full-size spare mounded on the side of the bed.
The black and gray theme continue on the interior. This follows the proper classic pickup attitude of a clean and airy cab. You get crisp classic-style gauges, and the large grippy steering wheel feels like pure nostalgia. The only addition you're likely to spot is the oil temp gauge under the dash, and that's just a handy piece that tells you when this one is ready to hit the road.
The butterfly hood is always fun to show off, and inside is the unmistakable look of Ford's famous 239 cubic-inch flathead V8. This was the larger of the two V8s offered at the time, and so this was the one drivers wanted. You'll certainly notice the upgrade to cool Offenhauser valve covers, but look closer and you'll also see more worthwhile investments, like new fuel lines, hoses, plugs, and plug wires. Plus, this has a 12-volt system, new motor mounts, and aluminum radiator. Those are the kind of upgrades that makes a vehicle starts easier and runs smoother. The three-speed manual transmission shifts smooth, and so you get the kind of classic truck that's ready to really drive.
This is a head-turning pre-war Ford that's built to be enjoyed. So if you're ready for the full classic pickup experience, call today!
