Differences in a 1937 chevrolet coupe

Are all 1937 chevrolet coupe bodys the same? For example what is a Business Man,s Coupe what is an Opera Coupe? Are all body parts interchangeable? Can you purchase fiberglass parts? Thanks for your info.

It is the custom here to introduce yourself, inform us a little about your project(s) and then proceed with the questions and replies of your own to others questions.

With that being said, I WELCOME you to the forum. I am one of the moderators on this part of it, General Rodding Tech ...

I am lots more knowlegeable with the Fords of that era but
I believe them to be some different. Some have the fuel tank opening on the body, while others have them on the fender. There are a few other small differences too. None of which will really matter to a rodder. A restorer yes, a rodder no.

37 Chevrolets can made into a very attractive and popular Street Rod. Parts are available, both repro and Hot Rod styles.

Sit back and enjoy this site. Some very informed folks here.

1937 chevrolet coupe

All 1937 coupes are exactly the same, and will exchange with 1938 coupes as well with some very minor differences. All coupes are "opera", "five window", "business mans coupes". No 1937 or 1938 Coupes came with rear seats, however a very small number were built with rumble seats, very rare! Front body clips are the only diffence between 37 and 38. Many sedan body parts are also exchangeable.

Look at www.chevsofthe40s.com, they have tons of parts for 37-54, also www.superiorglassworks.com sells f'glass fenders etc. The '37 is one of my favorites, used to watch Doug Cook race his at Lions back in 58/59, prior to him wheeling the Stone/Woods '41 Willys.......also good luck...Dave

Guys: This thread is over 6 years old. The chances of the original poster still watching his e-mail for an answer are less than zero. You both have posted great answers, but 6 years too late.
