Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
Daring to be different is great, especially if the distinctiveness is as good looking as this 1938 Dodge Business Coupe. With an all-steel body, slick paint, custom A/C interior, a powerful stroker V8, and those huge rear tires, this is the perfect way to fit in with the street machine crowd while still remaining very distinctive.
It only takes one glance to see there was a lot invested in this custom build. The maroon has a nice modern gloss, and so the clearcoat luster flows over the curvy fenders like they were waterfalls. The bumpers have been removed front and rear to continue this smooth attitude. There's plenty of classic appeal here with the bright vintage grille, full-length trim, and ram hood ornament leading the way. But really, we all know this is a true street machine. It announces its powerful intentions with the polished dual exhaust tips and hot rod-style pinstriping on the trunk. Plus, those bright Weld Racing wheels draw extra attention to the ultra-wide Mickey Thompson Sportsman rear tires to show there's true power meeting the pavement.
Open the doors and you'll see a nice mix of performance and comfort. It starts with tan bucket seats that offer much more modern comfort than the Dodge Brothers made 80 years ago. This pattern sets the tone for the door panels, carpets, and headliner. Even the business coupe's extra-large trunk is finished to match. Plus, you've got all the best in modern comfort features like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod input, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. The driver gets a wood rimmed three-spoke sports steering wheel, B&M shifter, SW auxiliary readouts, and a large column-mounted AutoMeter tach.
Under the hood is serious V8 power. This 383 stroker motor offers big block displacement in a small block weight. And this is a fresh powerhouse installed only about 7,500 miles ago. Plus, you have all the right power upgrades, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Holley performance intake. There's a three-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit to optimize the power. This feeds a stout Ford 9-inch rear with 3.90 gears. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see more nice upgrades like a Mustang II-style independent front end, and the rear is a narrowed four-link with adjustable coilovers. Plus, you have front disc brakes and rack & pinion steering for optimal control over this street machine.
This is a custom where you enjoy serious power and a serious rumble all from the comfort of an A/C interior. That makes for an unbeatable package you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
