Business coupes, popular in the 1930s and 1940s make excellent restomod candidates and this one is no exception. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1939 Dodge Business Coupe Restomod that was a recipient of an older frame off restoration.
Originally assembled at Chryslers Evansville, Indiana factory, this example is finished in a stunning custom yellow; the paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The six windows are clear and crackfree while the custom headlights with embedded parking lights and LED taillights are in great shape. The cars body work is straight and solid, its bumpers look fantastic, the engine bay is tidy and the trunk is in good order. The underside of this hot rod is highly finished with lots of detail.
This car rolls on Uniroyal radials, size 205/70R15, surrounding fivespoke American Racing wheels. The tires and wheels look great. Under that veeshaped hood is a 360 CID Mopar Performance V8 breathing through dual exhausts and is mated to a Torqueflite threespeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include vintage airconditioning and power windows.
Inside, the car has been updated for the modern driver. The tan cloth and vinyl bucket seats are in excellent shape, as is the matching tan carpet. The headliner is in similar great condition. Gauges from Classic Instruments replace the stock instruments within a yellow metal instrument panel and a Lecarra threespoke steering wheel mounted on a 1970sera GM column faces the driver and the inner door panels, echoing the interiors general theme, continue the great look. The mirror glass and shifter look very good and rounding out the interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with CD player.
In 1937, Dodge styling followed that of other Chrysler products. A new split vertical grille offered chrome moldings running down the center, paralleled by bodycolor panels. Bulletshaped headlamps flanked the grille and there were no longer any parts hidden in the fender aprons; the horns moved to a location behind the grille. The allsteel body had a chrome drip molding that extended its entire length and exterior door handles curved inward for safety. Recessed dash knobs and flushmounted gauges continued the emphasis on driver and passenger safety.
Standard equipment included Autolite ignition, hydraulic brakes, allsteel disc wheels, NoDraft ventilation, reading lamps over rear windows instead of dome lights, ventipanetype windows and 16gallon fuel tanks. A new, hypoid rear axle permitted a lower cargo floor as well as a lower driveshaft tunnel.
Competition to this Dodge in 1937 included Chevrolets Series GA and GB twodoor coupe and Fords twodoor coupe.
