A cool dude from Oregon City, Oregon, Mr. Jack Bristol, owns this sweet little black-on-black 1937 Chevy Coupe. She picked up a Best of Class Show Trophy back in 1977 at the Portland Roadster Show the year she was built and she’s still a winner today. She sports a 383 ci Stroker for power with a Chevy power glide tranny and a beefed up Ford rear-end. Power rack & pinion steering and disc brakes keeps her straight on the Highway. Add on super A/C, power windows and power door locks, plus a set of hand formed custom front fenders giving this little ’37 coupe a special new dimension. The custom interior bench seating is in a rich all leather finish, complimented with a set of custom dash gauges to finish this ride off in style. She features 16” tires and wheels up front and 20” tires over fully chromed out racing wheels out back to enhance the stance.
Jack and his wife (girlfriend) Linda have been married for fifty years. She attended Canby High and he was that cool dude from West Linn. They have two grown up wonderful daughters and five fantastic grandchildren. Together they love driving by their old High Schools in there like new 1937 Chevy Coupe. Jack is also a regular member in good standing at the Kool Guys Hot Rods Car Club Breakfast out in Carver, at the Hangar Restaurant every friday morning at 8:00 am.
On the days when Jack’s not driving the ’37 he can be found in a 2001 Classic Custom GMC step-side red on red pick-up showing off lots of chrome. This gorgeous, limited edition, features a custom billet grille, super chrome extensions up front with the rear-end featuring a bumper-less design. The black on black tonneau cover and the all black leather interior make this a one of a kind dream truck come true.

She is showing off 20” Tires and wheels on the rear and 16” tires and wheels on the front, over a full set of super chromed American Cragars on all four corners.
