    Brought this 37 sedan down from NY to south Texas. Started to tear her apart to make a hotrod. Has a running 46 flathead. Drives ok just no brakes. More pics to come

    Must have been garage kept for NY. Looks like a real nice car. What are you going to do with it.

    The fenders and quarters can be patched. The rears are hard to find so you may have to work with what you have. Hood sides are around. Do you have all the dash parts? Staying with flathead?

    I Need the center part of dash. Radio delete and ashtray I think. Flathead will stay for now. Maybe Y block
     

  5. Year ago the '37 Ford was considered a ugly duckling but I have always liked them and in the last 40 years they have grown in popularity. HRP
     
  6. I have an ash try with NO nob and a glovebox door. I just got some stuff ready to take to a swapmeet next Sat. and they are in the stash. Interested?

    Sounds like 383deuce has the stash to help you out. I have some odds and ends up in the attic but not the dash pieces you need.

  9. I've always loved those '37 Flatbacks. Almost bought one just like that 40 yrs. ago in Alexandria, Va. It was even the same color (I guess that's Washington Blue?). Good luck, looks like a real nice car.

    Make your list, arrange time off starting the last Thursday of this month and get to the Speedway in Denton for the PATE Swap Meet, largest in the Southwest and bring lots of money. You'll likely find everything you need there and more.

    Body sand blasted and epoxy primered. Mocked up on frame. I'm digging the wide 5 wheels with the adapters
