After I installed the fenders on my ’32 Ford I felt I had done all I could do…so to speak.
The car was good looking car but I did not love it. I also like comfort and the ’32 with it’s short wheel base was not comfortable for me. Since I did not build it from scratch I knew I would have to some day blow it apart and build it back up with a stick shift, better suspension etc…
I also would like an open car but a ’30-’32 Roadster would just be…kinda boring…to me that is. Sorry roadster guys, hope I did not hurt any feelings!
It would be great to have a car that can be converted to an enclosed car and have the heater keeping you comfortable. What do they call that? Oh yeah, a convertible!
Well, a friend wanted the ’32 and I can’t be Milner anymore so off it went.
I always liked the art deco styling of the ’37-’38 Fords. I few well placed want ads later and this thing found it’s self in my garage
1937 Ford Cabriolet. It is an older restoration but it has not seen much action since. It is very stock but a 24 stud flathead, ’39 box and juice brakes makes it a driver.
Immediate plans calls for dual exhaust, different color rims with ’39 caps?,lower the rear end and wide whitewalls. A spot light on the drivers side post would be cool too me thinks.
Then I plan to drive the wheels off it.
Leather interior looks and feels great. All stock dash is hard to improve on. The stock radio is connected to a late model radio via wires.
The car looks great with the top up as well. Me dig!
