My own 37 Ford Roadster

Hi to all. Just wanted to show you all my new project. A nice looking 37 Ford roadster! (well, just the tail) This thing wasnīt easy to find (low production, right?)What do you think? Should I make it a hot rod or just original stuff?

It depends. Do you want to spend the next 10 years trying to find all the original parts for this car? Or do you want to build your car now and be driving it a lot sooner. Hot rod it. For those parts that you can not find stock parts for, use and fabricate new ones and get on with getting it back on the road and driving. It is your car so you have to make the decision but you asked for an opinion. That's mine.

I hope you have most of the other parts too. Seeing that you are from Uruguay, I would think you would be best served to go street rod. You are better able to determine if you have the availability of parts there since most of us know little of what is in your country. Good luck and keep us posted on your project.

Cool ride

Just my opinion, but I'd rod it. Hot rod black primer, wide whitewalls, red wheels, hot V8, super ride on a budget. It would be a real head turner. If ya have any questions, ya came to the right place here. I've seen more hot rod knowlege here than any other site.

If what you actually have is a roadster and it is a 1937 Ford; I wish you the best in your build with whatever direction you choose to go.

The photo of the tail section looks to me to be a coupe with the top cut off.

I have always been under the impression that the last "Roadster" (No roll up side windows) that Ford built was in 1936. Since your vehicle is not here in the States it may be something that Ford produced for export or produced overseas.

Interesting project!

Yes sir. Itīs an original ī37 roadster, not a killed coupe. I have all the big parts (including the doors). I think the best choice is going to be to make it hot rod. Thanks for all the posts.

You have a similar problem to the one I had. If you look at my project journal you will see the direction I went. Basically, I hot rodded it, but tried to use original parts when possible. So what I ended up with was a car that kind of looks original but has modern suspension, steering, engine and electronics.

Have fun.
