The Ford line of cars was updated in 1937 with one major change — the introduction of an entry-level 136 CID (2.2 L) V8 in addition to the popular 221 CID (3.6 L) flathead V8. The model was a refresh of its predecessor, the Model 48 (itself based on the Model 40A), and was the company’s main product.
The 1937 Ford featured a 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 were a major modernization found on both the Standard and DeLuxe trim versions, though much of the rest of the design was shared between Ford’s two lines. A larger water pump was used to help aid in cooling. ‘Slantback’ sedans gained a rear trunk door, though space was limited, and ‘Trunkback’ versions continued gaining sales. The station wagon had seating for eight passengers. A 4-door “convertible sedan” with roll up windows was offered in small numbers in the DeLuxe series.
Presented here in a two-tone red and black colour combination, rarely do we see pickups of this age in such good condition. With a 3600cc V8, this ’37 pickup is a lovely sounding machine and with upgraded brakes, steering and air conditioning from is restoration, it is also a very drivable piece. Beautiful in every aspect, and with drivability to match.
