official 37 and 38 Chevy (All GM) car or truck thread

thought I would create a spot for all the 37 & 38 (+or-) chevy (and other GM products) cars/trucks owners (and former/future owners)
to get together and share info, ask questions, post pics, etc.

I know off and on there are is lot of these cars and info on here

I have done some searches here and dont remember seeing anything like this, for these cars
(if there is and I missed it, maybe one of the mods. can drag it out and merge the threads)

Here's a link to my journal and a couple pics of my car to get things started


hope to hear from some others, Matt

I don't build my own any more... but here is a customer's '37 humpback that I did 10-15 years ago, that you might find interesting.

We stepped over the line on paint, so I gave him my advise not to expect a 100% approval.

He promptly went to a large event, and won the paint award. ....What do I know? :-(

It had hidden palm fronds, and tiger stripe textures, done with lace.

Thanks for the kind words. I can't tell you how many hours. It's been too many years, and too many jobs ago.

I always loved the '37 coupes. Great styling! No matter what direction you go on yours, you are almost guaranteed a beautiful car!

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply and movingthe question to a better forum. As for how much the floor drops off i havn't checked it yet. I will need to fabricat some type of stand for the outside mount. I don't think it should be bore thtn about 2 inches. I han't found a supplier that has anything for this problem.

I didnt think that it dropped too much, thats why I asked
you could just use a small spacer under the outside mounts
would still like to have some pics of the car
good luck
