1937 Chevy Cabriolet

When Bruce Carter bought his 1937 Chevy Cabriolet back in 2012, it had been sitting for quite some time, 31 years to be exact. It took him 3 days to dig it out of the building, but it was well worth the effort. They only made 1,724 of them, it was also a one owner car with the original title. Bruce is a hot rod man at heart but found this car was too rare not to restore it. I think most would agree. With the help of a friend, Paul Villwock, the starter, carb, and motor were overhauled. They replaced the clutch, tires, glass, convertible top, and a battery with parts from Chevs Of The 40's. All under parts were powder coated. He also bead blasted all the body parts, which happen to be all original. Once painted, it was perfect!
