This 1937 Chevrolet Coupe is owned by Chuck Rowe. It was built by Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop in Louisville, TN. The 1937 sports ample sheet metal tweaks including a stretched and cut hood, stretched front fenders with reworked wheel openings, and one of the more famous and powerful big-block Chevy V8s to grace any hot rod. The car also sports a Jim Rench one-off grille.
The car features a McLaren/Chevrolet big block stacked fuel injection engine that was raced in the ’60s by the Chaparral team and won the Can Am Series Championship in 1971. The vintage V8 was taken under care by Mylon Keasler of Mylon Keasler Racing to be cleaned up and changed from mechanical fuel injection to modern EFI. The engine puts out 500-plus horsepower. The car’s transmission is a G-Force 6-speed.
The car also features Classic Instrument gauges, an Art Morrison chassis, one-off Alloway ET-style wheels, and ProAuto interiors by Steve Holcomb. The interior was modeled after a 1962 Corvette. Note the dash, gauge pod, door panels, twin buckets, steering wheel, and floor mounted shifter.
