1937 Ford Motor Home

October 4, 2010 Roberta Estes


For those of you who have a motor home, ever owned a motor home, or just car buffs, take a look at this one.  Hard to believe that it is 73 years old!


 This is one of only six said to have been made per year in the mid-30’s at the Ford plant in St.Paul, Minnesota , according to an article on this car in a 1993 “Old Cars” magazine article.

Very few others–perhaps none – remain on the road, and certainly not in such amazing original condition.

When discovered in a garage (under a heavy cover) in Northern Minnesota in August 2001, she had only 19,000 miles, and the owner’s manual was actually still in the glove box in like-new condition! 

She had always been garaged and treated with ‘Much TLC’ as a collector vehicle. 

The interior, all wood lined, was still the way it appeared in the ’30’s and ’40’s, complete with framed photos (some in pink) of the original owner on his travels (mainly to Florida) and his cabin in the North Woods, plus and other memorabilia from the era. 

Notice the windshield lifts up from the bottom to provide flow through ventilation.

A peak inside: 

A slice right out of 1930’s, just as the original owner left it, complete with pink bedspread, picture frames, pillows and light. 


Thanks Jen for sending these photos and info!!
