Streetrod Wild Rod
There's truly something special about owning a well-built street machine that is as comfortable to drive to the car show as it is to take across the country. This 1937 Ford pickup streetrod is just that – a completely functional vehicle wrapped up in an awesome shell. With a strong fuel-injected small block, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and custom A/C interior, it's an award-worthy car that also is easy to cruise near or far.
This car represents an interesting part of Ford history. There were a few rare business coupes with pickup boxes that debuted in '37. This takes that idea and turns it into a slick street machine. It starts with a fiberglass body believed to be built by Wild Rod Factory – a rare piece that is no longer available. The two-tone Pearl White and Dark Blue Metallic looks amazing even from miles away, but when you get up close, it's the pinstriping that really steals the show. You have an artful light blue and champagne accenting the curves, and there's even hand-laid stripes around the edges! Just like any good custom build, it has all the right details to impress. You see this in places like the bright aluminum grille, integrated running boards, deleted door handles, Corvette-style taillights, sport mirrors, and power actuators that reveal the engine and carpeted truck bed. Of course, it wouldn't be a hot rod without an aggressive stance thanks to the 17-inch Billet Specialties polished wheels.
When you pop the remote door openers, the suicide doors open wide to reveal a full custom interior. This continues a great blue and white two-tone to be nicely coordinated with the exterior. And you can tell there was a solid investment in making sure these two colors were expertly intertwined on the dash, custom door panels, carpeting, and leather seats. In fact, not only do those dual buckets provide plenty of modern comfort, but they also have an awesome look with alligator-style inserts. The custom center console houses a ton of premium features, including power window switches, power locks, cup holders, and the AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB input so you can do everything from plug in your iPod to charge your phone. And yes, they also neatly integrated the vents for the modern R134a air conditioning system. This is built to be a true driver's machine, and that's why the grippy sports steering wheel is on a polished tilt column. And the dash is dominated by Dolphin gauges.
Grab your sunglasses before pressing the button to open the hood. That's because the piano-style hinge gives a big reveal to the stunning motor. We dare you to find another component that can be polished on this award-worthy presentation. More than just style, this one has substance. You're looking at a 350 cubic-inch fuel-injected V8 like that was available in the C4 Corvette. That means it's a strong motor with solid footing. And the headers feeding the stainless dual exhaust will make everyone takes notice with its rumble. But don't just listen to the sound, admire its full path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see all the gleaming components against the painted custom chassis. But as beautiful as this looks, it was also built for long Sunday drives. That starts with a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. This one also features a tubular A-arm front suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Slick, distinct, and absolutely awesome, this is the streetrod pickup with all the features you want. So don't let it go into someone else's garage. Call now!
