1937 Ford Stock Interior
Posted by del austin on Thursday, October 26, 2017 9:03 AM

Buiding a 1937 Ford Deluxe Coupe and am looking for stock (ish) interior parts. I beleive the sedan kit had fairly stock seats and door panels and not sure of the cabriolet. If anyone has spares please let me know before I attempt to scratch build them.

Hi Del,

As far as I know all three of the Monogram/Revell '37 Ford kits have some sort of street rod type interior and you can't build them stock. The interiors of the stock 37's were very, very plain but I'm sure you know that. I thought that maybe the monogram '36 Ford coupe had a stock type interior but it has pleated seat and door panels too. I've been "racking my brain" trying to think of something you could use but so far haven't come up with anything. If you could find some cheap interior pieces from old classic car interiors you might be able to piece something together, but otherwise I'm at a loss. i'll keep thinking about it though. 

They're have been guys who have built "stock" '37s but I'm not sure who or where to find them. Sorry!!!

Thanks Barry. Was thinking the 37 Sedan kit was pretty close to the stock deluxe interior and could be adapted. Now I just need to find someone who has an interior from one.

The slant back sedan is not close to stock.  I'm using a 1936 kit for the underpinnings, as it was stock and the same, but for the interior, you could use a 1949 Ford seat, cut the back into the split back, and then just scribe some lines into the seat to get a pretty close to 1937 stock seat.  That is about the best I have come up with, because the pleated 1936 interior won't work, as has been said.  Finding an example of a 1937 Ford that hasn't been ruined isn't easy, but there ARE pics out there that will help you along.  There are a couple of COMPLETED listings on eBay that have some decent pictures of stock 1937 Fords you could check out.
