The 1937 Ford featured a sleeker, more rounded look with fine horizontal bars in the convex front- and hood-side grilles. The front grille was V-shaped, rather than following the fenders into a pentagon shape, as on the 1936 model. Faired-in headlights installed in the front fenders were a major modernization, found on both the Standard and DeLuxe trim versions. They sold well but were never hot-rodded quite like the ’32. When done to the level of this Deco Rod, it’s easy to see this legendary design is the perfect palette for a modern custom, and the awards back it up.

Starting with a new custom body is a huge advantage; this one is placed on a boxed frame with tubular front suspension, Flaming River rack and pinion steering, and a four-bar rear suspension. Riding on Intelliride air ride suspension, it features Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes beneath the 20-inch rear and 18-inch front custom red wheels. Full coverage custom hubcaps highlight the classic whitewall tires. It’s definitely got the stance, the look is undeniable, and you’ll find out the Deco Rod handles like a dream. The full custom interior is exceptional, starting with one of the deepest and softest red leather interiors you’ll ever see, which extends to the door panels in spectacular fashion. With chrome accents, the full modern dash fits right in with new analog gauges, and everyone will enjoy the center console-mounted Sony digital sound system. It’s capped off with an amazing custom tilt steering wheel with chrome accents, and the power seats and windows, air-conditioning, and flawless carpets finish up the incredible custom interior. That level of detail continues to the deep and smooth black paint finish as well, with perfectly straight lines, tight panel fit, and an incredible presentation throughout. The suicide doors open wide, the custom trim is amazing, and everything is tucked in tight with perfect fit. Even the power-operated trunk is smooth and clean, with fresh carpets and upholstery throughout. A hidden spare, discreet gas filler, and 600 watt subwoofer are expertly installed, so there’s plenty of room for your personal gear. When you roll up in this beautiful ’37, everyone will take notice and will be hoping for a cruise. Pop the hood, and the modern LS6 Corvette Z06 power plant immediately stands out as beautifully finished, highly custom, and ready for action. The full 5.7 liters of power is on display as soon as you turn the key - roaring to life through the custom exhaust with a center oval rear tip. It easily pushes 450 horsepower, and is backed up by a modern GM Performance 4L65E transmission and a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end. Custom black valve covers display the “Deco Rod” script for an amazing look that will draw admiration wherever it is displayed.

This one certainly ticks all the boxes - LS6 power, full custom air ride suspension, a lavish leather interior, and incredible fit and finish with deep black paint - plus, it’s a multiple award winner. With amazing handling and a ton of power, the “Deco Rod” will certainly be on the top of your list for any cruise night, car show, or date night on your calendar. If a high quality killer custom is on your bucket list, then look no further.
