Default 1937 Chevy Coupe

I've been promising a build thread for some time... so here it is.

First and foremost, this is not my car. It belongs to a good friend and I hope my hand serves my friend and his car well. (We'll see how that works out.)

Back story: He and I scoured the 'net and told everybody we knew, we were looking for a '37 or '38 Chevy coupe. Some 3 or 4 years went by and no reasonable, affordable or sensible candidates surfaced... until one of his co-workers "caught wind" and led us to a relative, who supposedly had a '37 for sale...

My buddy got the relative's ph# and gave it a ring. The owner couldn't send pictures, but he said enough to prompt a "leap of faith" and a 4 hour road trip. When we arrived, this is what we found...

... sorry for the crappy phone pics... but it was, indeed, a '37 coupe tucked away in an old highway van for some 15 years. We looked it over, under, inside, out, end to end and the removed sheetmetal as well. I stuck a small magnet (inconspicuously ) to as many surfaces as possible.

We climbed out of the trailer and had a private discussion... needless to say, my buddy bought the car.

That's all for tonight. I'll continue tomorrow.
