The next amazing vehicle up for grabs in our Benicia showroom is this outstanding 1937 Ford Model 78 Deluxe 2 Door Cabriolet with Rumble Seat, Washington Blue exterior paint, a tan Canvas soft top and gorgeous brown leather in the interior.  You’ll find a 231 ci flathead V-8 engine under the hood with a new carburetor, and upgraded cam, a new radiator, a new clutch/pressure plate, a new exhaust and a 3-speed manual transmission, along with new hydraulic brakes, new wiring and so much more.  This cabriolet is gorgeous in person and with a mere 500 miles on the build, it’s ready to be shown off and driven immediately.

Driven Only 500 Miles Since Complete Restoration

The current owner of this 1937 Ford Model 78 Deluxe Cabriolet acquired it back in 2013 as the 5th lifetime owner and he informs us that this beauty underwent a complete frame off restoration earlier this year.  The exterior is one of the nicest we’ve ever seen with flawless lines and extremely high quality paint and trim work, plus a completely overhauled engine compartment that’s 100% show ready.  Along with a fully upgraded leather interior that includes a high-end wooden dash, new carpeting, a very comfortable leather bench seat and excellent glad/trim, this is easily one of the nicest examples that we’ve come across in quite some time.

Additionally, this 1937 Ford Model 78 Deluxe Cabriolet had the vast majority of the drivetrain rebuilt or replaced within the last 500 miles as well, so the overall ride quality is exceptional.  The flathead V-8 with an upgraded distributor is smooth and steady on the open road with nice acceleration and an impressive sound coming from the new dual exhaust.  Upgraded hydraulic brakes also provide excellent stopping power, which makes this one of the most complete builds you’ll find anywhere.  The asking price doesn’t even begin to cover the quality and craftsmanship found in this excellent roadster.

New Paint, Interior, Mechanicals & So Much More

Overall, this 1937 Ford Model 78 Deluxe Cabriolet is a true investment grade classic that certainly has “Best in Class” potential on most stages.  This one needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate and it is a sensational buy at the current asking price.  This one will not remain available for long.  For more information about this impressive vehicle, visit our Benicia, California showroom, give us a call at 707-748-4000, or email us at  Be sure to mention Stock # B11368 as well.
