Where is the best place to buy Running Boards for 1937 Chevy Coupe?

Hey Ya'll, I'm not sure if I want to put running boards on my NEW/OLD ride or not. She is suppose to be delivered here on Monday. Right now, she does not have running boards, and was wondering where the best place to buy them or should I have them made or not use them at all. Check out the pic. Thanks, Donna

Cool looks good from here..as to running boards you may wish to go to www.metalmeet.com and see if someone there may want to make you some..I am not sure where one would find repop boards for that car..

Up to you what you decide..looks fine with no boards at all,,

One other thing you may look at is the boards made for trucks as there may be some that are long enough to be able to be trimmed to fit..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Hi Donna,, you can get smoothy running boards from smoothy fabrication in north carolina,, I just bought some for a 36 chev that I am working on ,, they are made from 16 ga, cold roll steel and fit perfect,, I;m not sure that new boards will fit on your car,, from what I can see from the picture, ti looks like the rear fenders have been bobbed off.in front, [shortened up] check to see if there are some mounting holes in the front of the rear fenders,, they may have been welded up but yo should be able to tell if they are cut or not,, try www.smoothiefabrication.com They have a good product Bill
