Even after an interest in motoring that goes back over 40 years every once in a while I learn about a Ford model I have never heard of before, such is the case with the 1937 Ford Business featured today which I mistook for a De Luxe.
It turns out the Business was a base model range to introduced in 1937 that replaced the Model B and stayed in production only until 1940.
Many of the features apart from the V shape grill of the Business were shared with the Standard and De Luxe models.
The Business Coupé seen here would have originally been fitted with cable operated drum brakes.
Engine options were either 60 hp 2.2 liter / 136 cui or 80 hp 3.6 liter / 221 cui V8’s, the one seen here is listed as fitted with non standard a 5 liter / 305 cui.
The Business was available in Sedan, 8 seat station wagon, Coupé and Convertible versions.
Thanks for joining me on on this ‘Pleasure Business’ edition of ‘Gettin’ a li’l psycho on tyres’, I hope you will join me for Ferrari Friday tomorrow. Don’t forget to come back now !
