  • 1937 Dictator Coupe has arrived

    Just arrived today. I am basically the 3rd owner of this rust free original coupe.

    The engine runs but I am going to go over everything before I drive the car.

    Stay tuned for a lot of questions.

            Looks pretty badass with the smoothies.
            A batwing coupe is on my short list, since Coupes Express are out of my $$ range.

                    As for the car, one of my favorites. Glad you got it. Looks like you have an excellent facility to keep it in too!

                        Maybe after I get it on the road I will buy your book. Just hold it for me.

                          I watched this car when it was on e-Bay. Looks like a good buy. Have fun with it. Tom

                              Stunning piece of metalwork - the bodyline that flows from under the cab window, all the way down the flank and around under the trunk......... is this a cleverly disguised seam in the metal? Or is it all one piece? Beautifully done either way.
                              There is a '37 4 door sedan for sale here in West Australia for $15000 (10.5k US). Good condition, nice looking car, but cannot compare to the 2 door.
