From the photos, that does not appear to be a Roadmaster. I think it is a Century but it might be a Special. It certainly has a later engine. 

You know, I've run into that before. People must just love the word "Roadmaster". I've seen several "Roadmaster Specials" over the years. It was probably silly of me to assume that the seller knew what he was talking about.

I agree with Matt, that is a later engine. the spark plug cover has the vertical vent holes. the earlier one is more rounded for '37. Looks like it was originally a 248, but may be a 263. I think the car is a Special.

I really dislike it when sellers drop that "I will butcher it if you don't buy it" garbage!

 

Clearly a lot wrong about the ad and the car. But it might be a worthwhile project for a "runner" if one doesn't need it totally right (the later engine?)?

I don't think that is the 320 motor and it's probably not from 1937. You can't fit a 320 in place of of a 248 so it's a special with and incorrect motor. Dual carbs on a '37? that's not right either.
