Summit Racing has created Cool Hand Customs 1937 Dodge Parts Combos that include the major upgrade parts used to build this one-of-a-kind street rod. These combos are a great starting point for most any mid- to late-1930s Dodge or Plymouth hot rod project.
The Dodge came with a rebuilt 318 cubic inch small block Mopar backed by a four-speed transmission. Cool Hand painted the engine gold to match the car and added some go-fast parts including an Edelbrock Performer intake and carburetor, a Pertronix Ignitor electronic distributor conversion, Taylor ignition wires, a Be Cool aluminum radiator, a Tuff Stuff alternator, and a Powermaster starter.
EJ at Cool Hand wanted to run T-bucket style headers on the Dodge, so he fabricated a set using a Summit Racing Sprint Car Header Kit and a pair of Patriot Performance header flanges. He covered the headers with Thermo-Tech Copper header wrap to keep the heat in the pipes and off of his tender skin.
Wheels and Tires Combo
Cool Hand Customs rehabbed the Dodge’s front factory wheels and finished them with a pair of Mr. Gasket baby moon hubcaps. Out back is a set of vintage aluminum slot wheels, and everything was shod in a set of Coker Classic bias-ply whitewall tires for the proper hot rod vibe.
Chassis Rehab Combo
The Dodge’s chassis needed a major intervention. Cool Hand Customs took the whole thing apart and gave the frame and chassis components a makeover with KBS products—Klean Surface Cleaner, Rust Blast, Frame Coater, Rust Seal, and TopKoat paint.
This combo features some major parts used to finish the car—parts like a Summit Racing aluminum fuel cell, New Vintage USA Woodward Series Gauges, NGK plugs, and a Grant steering wheel—and a few not-so-major items like a United Pacific side view mirror, Taylor plug wire dividers, and a Be Cool catch can.
