Default My 1937 Ford build

Well long story short, I inherited this 37 Ford sedan from my grandfather years ago. He is still alive today and very excited about this project. This is EASILY the most elaborate, and detailed build I have ever been a part of. The only thing that isnt updated really is the exterior of the car.

Here is what we started with



Nathan @ Hales Speed shop is handling this build from start to finish. I've been waiting to do this for a long time, pretty excited about it. Hopefully driving this fall!

Current plans are LS3 with ported/milled factory heads, Vic JR intake, mild cam, 4L80e, 9". 9" and Mustang II front end are in the process of going in the chassis right now. This car will have AC, drive great and be reliable.








Custom firewall



Mocked up on the ground


Custom interior panels



How it sits today



Car is currently running. Exhaust got finished yesterday. Bumpers are getting fitted today!

Very cool ride! My grandpa used to race cars like that. Unfortunately he passed away before I was able to really appreciate it or learn anything from him.

This. Is. Going. To. Be. Lengendary.

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the LS motor. I do completely understand why you went with it, but I think these types of cars deserve to keep their flat 8 heritage. Just keeps the nostalgia.

That would for sure be cool, but I want a driver.

This is badass, very similar build to what I want to do with my grandfather's car. He's had it for over 30 years and I was able to pick it up a few months ago. 235 with 3 on the tree, pretty fun to drive around.

How did you like the work done by Hale's, it looks like it's done right, but would you recommend them?

Anyway, here's a couple pictures of when he had it back in the day and when I picked it up.

Very cool car dude! I've known Nathan Hale for a very long time. IMO he is the NUMBER 1 hotrod builder in the southern united states. He builds these cars to be driven hard across the country and look great doing it.

Little eye candy for you guys

Nathan is a good guy, known him for 10 years or so. Helped me out with my bagged 04 Ram, and has helped my father out numerous times with his 55 chevy. Well worth the coin if you can afford it.

Cool car. Going to be one more of the LS/turbo/bagged Hale's crew?
