- Model 37-90 (V-16 engine)
- The series 37-60, 37-65, 37-70, 37-75 were all eight cylinder cars.
- The 37-85 was the same as the 37-75 except now it had twelve cylinders.
- The series 80 of 1936 was dropped this year.
- Also the 37-90 (with 16 cylinders) was essentially the same as the 36-90 of 1936.
- In fact, this was the last year for this overhead valve V-16 engine and body
with its 3912mm wheelbase.
- Next year, the sixteen cylinder power plant would be an L-head shoehorned
into the series 75 on a 3581mm wheelbase.
