Special Holiday Pricing!! This beautiful 1937 Ford Street Rod was professionally built by Roy Brizio Street Rods. Brizio has been building Street Rods for over 38 years. All of them are known for not just being showable but drivable, and for Roy Brizio Street Rods, an “endless quest for perfection”.
His customers include repeat buyer Reggie Jackson, rocker Jeff Beck, Vic Edelbrock and Eric Clapton. In fact, Brizio built Clapton’s first street rod and they continue to work together to this day.
The show and drive qualities that define this Brizio start with a heavily chopped Minotti fiberglass 1937 Ford three-window coupe body (now unattainable after Minotti went out of business in 2005).
This is the finest Street Rod we have ever seen, the current owner bought the car shortly after it was completed and has owned it since 1999. The quality and every detail of the build are absolutely fantastic, the ultra-straight chopped top Minotti body is painted a flawless metallic Champaign Beige and sits on a custom fabricated tubular chassis. The chassis is a true piece of art, every weld has been ground and smoothed, while every component of the custom Kugel coil over stainless steel independent front suspension is either polished or chromed as is the ZR-1 Corvette independent rear suspension. The four wheel disc brake system appears to be from a ZR-1 Corvette as are the polished wheels and the six speed manual transmission. A Chevy 502 cubic inch crate engine with a Inglese/Weber induction is snugly tucked into this beautifully designed engine compartment. The interior is just as nice with beige leather covered bucket seats, tilt steering column, A/C, power windows, Alpine stereo with CD, Classic gauges and a Grant steering wheel. Since being built this outstanding Street Rod has always been on display and driven very sparingly. Corvette Mike Midwest has gone completely through the car making sure that it is ready for the new owner to drive and enjoy a truly unique example of Americana art.
