Wild Ride Factory

Does anyone have any information or know of a way to contact a company called Wild Ride Factory? I believe they are makers of glass car bodies or maybe they assemble glass body cars. The only pic I have is of a decal on a firewall.

Your sticker says "Wild Rod", not Wild Ride, and it appears to have a (partially hidden) web address and phone number?

They may be defunct, that link states "WILD ROD FACTORY in St jean de la lande de beauc is a company that specializes in Mineral Wool. Our records show it was established in Quebec." Doesn't sound like anything to do with cars unless it's a sticker for sound/heat matting.

Dang...you are absolutely correct..Wild ROD. There is a web site for Wild Rod Factory but it appears it has been mostly taken down. All the info is missing. But it appears it was a company in Canada that produced glass 37 fords. Thanks to all for helping.

Superior Glass Works in Molalla burned to the ground a few years ago.

They manufactured FRP (Fiberglass( & Carbon Fiber bodies and a long list of parts.

I picked up my Carbon Fiber body a week or so before the fire. On of my one piece front ends was in this fire but survived with minimal damage. I was in the center of the floor still in the mold, and nothing fell on it.

Great products, they are missed.

Michael.

Thanks Tom. A few months ago I talked to the people in Quebec and they gave the information about where the molds ended up. A guy in Texas has the molds and can probably supply SOME parts. His website is wild37s.
I also talked to James Combs who did most of the leather interiors. But I can not seem to find out who owned my car before me. Dealer is closed mouth and I have researched and even talked to the original registration people win MA....they are closed mouth also. Anyway I still love the car.

Actually we are in business. I bought the molds out of Canada years ago. They are in the US now.

Is the Chevy pickup body also aimed at 1937?
