If you're a hardcore street rod fan who's been looking for the perfect custom to show off at the next cruise night AND enjoy on the open road, you're search is over!




This awesome '37 Ford coupes smooth and sinuous fuselage began life at a small, but well-known company called Minotti Fiberglass in Naples, Florida. Established almost 20 years ago, Minotti is a diverse, family owned operation which has built a fantastic reputation for providing both top notch building components and great looking replicas of some of the most popular Ford street rods to ever roll out of Dearborn, Michigan. Once this cars solid and detailed Minotti body was fully cured and completely pre-assembled, it hopped a truck to Eastern Rod and Customs in Raleigh, North Carolina where a coat of trailer queen worthy Tangelo Pearl Orange urethane was massaged to perfection.

Under the fully removable hood you'll find a fresh 454 cubic inch, 450 horsepower big block Chevrolet crate engine. At the top of that engine, a custom air filter funnels wind into a Demon 750 4-barrel carburetor which is outfitted with braided fuel lines, high quality Jegs fittings and a Marshall fuel pressure gauge. That massive carburetor sends air/fuel mixture into a chrome Edelbrock Performer intake which feeds eight sequentially fired cylinders that are sparked by a traditional HEI distributor and loomed Summit Racing plug wires. At the sides of that intake, chrome Mickey Thompson valve covers hang K&N breathers above ceramic coated Hooker Headers; and at the front of that intake, fresh V-belts spin a chrome Powermaster alternator next to a polished AC compressor.

Power flows from a proven TH400 3-speed automatic transmission through a new driveshaft to a tough Ford 9 inch rear end which is bolted between the cars Tangelo Orange frame, a Heidts front subframe with tubular control arms, and a great handling four link rear suspension. And exhaust flows from the cars ceramic coated Hooker headers through ceramic coated true dual pipes to great sounding ceramic coated Magnaflow mufflers. Quick stops come courtesy of a Baer disc brake system which utilizes braided lines and chrome calipers to squeeze giant drilled and slotted rotors at all four corners. And ride height is completely customized thanks to a fully adjustable Air Ride Technologies suspension system. Throwing the torque to the asphalt is a mirror-like set of 17 inch Budnik Gasser billet aluminum wheels which wear 215/40 Kuhmo Ecstas up front and 31x16.50 Hoosier Pro Street Radials out back.

Open the doors of this killer '37 Ford and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that combines the cars spectacular exterior paint with supple white leather which feels nice enough to adorn the centerpiece of your living room. The firm and modern Cerullo SC bucket seats are supportive; feel soft enough to take a nap on, and feature clean, color matched lap belts. At the sides of those seats, custom door panels hang slick body matched inserts below attractive billet aluminum door handles. And between those seats, a custom covered and body matched console anchors a chrome B&M shifter between switches for the cars power windows, a control panel for the cars adjustable air suspension, a polished emergency brake handle and a kill switch for the big block motor. At the front of the car, a stylish and simplistic dash hangs attractive Dolphin gauges above controls for the heat and air conditioning system, hidden buttons for the cars accessories, a modern Alpine CD player and a classic "V8" emblem. And at the top of the car, a custom leather headliner is stretched tightly around a clear dome light and a centered, body-matched insert. In front of the driver, a polished Budnik steering wheel sits on a chrome tilt steering column and features a matching leather rim. And behind the cockpit, a custom upholstered trunk conceals the cars fuel filler behind plenty of luggage space for weekend getaways.
