Ford president Edsel Ford may have been losing his struggle with Harry Bennett for effective control of the Ford Motor Company in 1937, but his influence was never more apparent than in the fresh and modern styling of the companys automobiles for 1937. In fact, many of the new design cues introduced on the landmark 1936 Lincoln-Zephyr now appeared on the mainstay Ford lineup, providing an aerodynamic and modern look with wonderful Art Deco flair. Most prominent among the new body design was the striking frontal treatment, incorporating flush-mounted teardrop headlamps, a gorgeous, V-shape tapered grille motif, and streamlined hood vents. While a longstanding Ford model, the sporty Roadster made its final appearance for 1937 as the market had been shifting to a preference toward closed body styles.
