Just sold my little 32 glass coupe and bought this all steel Henry Ford 1938 Standard Coupe.
It looks like a 1937 in your album. HRP
looks like different cars to me(?)
The top pictures I posted is the one I bought.
- true beauty
Nice shade of Blue!
Did the car you bought come out of the Ft Myers, Cape Coral, Fl area?
I bought it from a gentlemen in Michigan. I believe he bought it from Florida.
Cool coupe .. It's got a 37 Ford front end on it.. 38 standard is like my avatar.. Still a cool coupe....
Great looking car
1938 Ford Standard Coupe. The 1938 recession hurt sales, as did Ford's continuing of the 1937 cars, including most body panels. 1938 DeLuxe models were differentiated with a heart-shaped grille, though standard models retained the 1937 look.
My avatar is the 38 standard model, but I don't want to argue...
That is definitely a 37 front. I used to own a 38 Tudor and it had the same front as Scrap metal 48.
The 38 Deluxe front is different again.
Yes it has a 37 front end for sure !!
Don’t matter to me fat cars are very neat,yours is quite nice. My avatar 41 olds.
Welcome to the club. Nice car. Snowman
congrats... just need a little attitude change ( wheels ) nice car btw
Just curious what your choice of wheels would be ??
I think that tire & rim combo works perfectly on the car. Great stance and a classic, timeless look. JMO
Really nice car - looks amazing ... have fun!
38 Deluxe rear fenders, 37 front clip, the body number should tell if it is 37 or 38.
irrespective, nice coupe.
hard to say... depends on what you like most... lots of choices out there.. my 36 3w is more a traditional car... with 16" 40 Ford wheels and blackwall Firestone Deluxe Champions and Lyons caps... Real Rodder rims or Halibrand ( Kidney Bean ) reproduction would look great... fully polished and blackwall tire ( may need to play around with sizes frt & rr) .. In the end what makes you happy and you like counts the most.. look around also and see what other have run on the these Fat Fender Fords and get ideas also.. all the best … nice ride again and congrats @hd1084
Nice. Always had a soft spot for a '37/8...well, anything really. Ford and Chevy knocked it out of the park those years for me. In all body styles. But a '37 Ford Coupe would be pretty high up on my personal "the list".
Almost makes me wish I had fenders.
Very nice. Enjoy it
Looks great with those tires and wheels. Only thing I would change would be covers on the running boards. Welcome to the club, she's a beauty, keeper I hope !
