Here is my 37 Chevy I'm working on as well.... going with a six cylinder in this one. Just mocked it up on a chassis tonight.

That's gonna be nice and I've thought about starting my '37 Chevy Coupe a few times. I do love 60's gassers as well.

Great work on the 37,one of my Favorite fat fender kits especially since there was a 1:1 gasser type 37 coupe in our posession until my Dads passing in 2004.I probably built 2 dozen of the 37's in my day.
