BELLE CENTER — Steve and Janet Bechtel, of Belle Center, recently purchased this 1937 Ford Cabriolet from an estate sale in Florida.
“I’ve always liked the body style of the ‘37 Fords,” said Steve Bechtel.
The car was actually trailered to Bechtel from Palmetto, Florida.
“I called the gentleman about the car and he asked if I lived anywhere near Lima, Ohio. He was coming to Lima the next week to pick up a 1957 Ford Thunderbird. He said if we could work out a deal, he would bring the car to me. We worked it out and he delivered it. It worked out perfectly,” said Bechtel.
The car is painted pearl white with a navy blue top. The interior is white and navy blue. It had only 13,752 miles on it.
This Cabriolet features a ZZ4 350 fuel injected Chevy engine. It is an automatic and has air conditioning but is without heat. As Bechtel notes,”No heat is needed in Florida,” said Bechtel.
This beauty is sure to turn heads as it motors down the road.
