1937 Ford 5W Standard Coupe (Couper)

Last updated Dec 1, 2013  

Photo of a 1937 Ford 5W Standard Coupe (Couper)


I've been building a supercharged Ford Y-Block on and off for the past 4 years. Lots of set-backs and searching for hard to find parts like an original McCulloch VS-57 supercharger, but I finally finished the motor (stroked 292 to 331 and wanted to find a 30's Ford coupe to put it in. A friend sent me a link to a local ad in Iowa for a complete 37 Ford 5W Business coupe. I contacted the owner and had him send a lot of pictures. It was definitely a project, but the car was complete with extra parts and the price was right so I hooked up my car hauler and drove out from Maine to get it. That was this past April and I've been working on it all summer.


The new engine uses a 1962 Ford 292 heavy duty truck block bored .060", relieved for lower compression with an off-set ground 312 crank to give it a displacement of 331 Forged Scat rods and forged Probe pistons with all ARP hardware. Ported and polished Ford Y Block 471 heads with 69cc chambers and 1.940" intakes and 1.600" exhaust. The supercharger is a VS-57 McCulloch supercharger that has been modified to an SN-60 type with high output impeller and a heavy street spring pack. The carb is a Holley 4150 750 Double pumper, and the cam is a special grind Comp with a .491 lift
