Jack Steiner had helped design the B29 & 707 and was Chief Designer of the 727. His major contribution to the 737 project was to use as much of the 727 in the 737, in particular the fuselage cross section. This gave not only cost savings in tooling commonality but also the payload advantage of 6 abreast seating, one more than the DC-9 or BAC 111 and allowed it carry standard sized cargo containers on the main deck. It gave the interior a spacious look and allowed Boeing to use standard cabin fittings from the 727 & 707 such as toilets and galleys. This together with its large hold capacity, gave it scope for using the aircraft as a freighter, a role to which many of the older 737's are now being converted, whilst the competitors are being scrapped. Both Jack Steiner and Joe Sutter’s names are on the patent for the 737.
In fact the 737 had a 60% parts commonality with the 727 which included the doors, leading edge devices, nacelles, cockpit layout, avionics, components and other fittings. The 727 in turn had a similar commonality with the 707, so parts of the 737 can be traced back to the early 1950's eg the fuselage cross-section above the floor.
Using off-the-peg components was quick and cheap for both design and production and also helped pilots and engineers convert to the new type, but they also dated the aircraft, a feature which was never really addressed until the NG's 30 years later.
On 19 Feb 1965, Boeing announced the 737-100 after an initial order of 10 from Lufthansa, who became the first foreign airline to launch a US airliner. Assembly started in the summer of 1966.
