Intresting point.
I have seen lots of flat tops with starter, even 40 years ago. Assumed that it was an option, at least at some point before restyling.
BUT--I allways thought it was currious that every electric f/t had a cluthch housing with the hole for the for the oil line on a RC, which was after the restyle. Just never got around to discussing it with anyone.
Don't really have a clue of what was original.

As Harry mentioned, it's not a factory uption. My brother converted my dad's 37 to electric. It's not to difficult, just need a starter, flywheel housing off a styled WC, a battery box, and alternator, plus a wiring harness. If you're rebuilding an unstyled, might want to consider converting it. It's easier to turn a key then to hand crank.

Follow the link to see our converted WC.

You can just make out the starter in front of the gear shift.

Welcome to AC Never heard of a flat top (unstyled WC) with factory electric starter. Am 99 44/100% sure that the first ones were the styled models that came out for '39, even had electric lights! Just went junk hunting last week end and rounded up a late model WC clutch housing, starter and flywheel with the starter gear etc. to convert the 37 while its all apart for restoration. Thanks, Harry
