Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This might be a 1932 Chevrolet sedan, but it has been lowered, chopped, and customized into the ultimate hot rod. Powered by a roaring 350 V8 and nicely softened by a few choice options, this steel streetrod is the one that makes the Blue Oval boys nervous.
This is the streetrod to drive when you want attention on the custom car scene. Most 1930's hot rods start off with a Ford body, and so this '32 Chevy makes for a rare distinctive treat. And yes, "treat" is the right word to describe a steel body car that looks like its dripping in gray and silver paint. Whoever chose this paint already knew that there would have to be some serious time and money invested in getting the body laser straight. After all, there's no hiding imperfections from this mirror shine. Just about everything else on this hot rod is also a custom build, including the chopped top, green pinstriping, and shaved handles on the suicide doors. The Chevy sits on a lowered suspension that's been staggered for an aggressive stance, and then capped with flashy chrome wheels. The teardrop taillights out back, the headlights are Old-School and integrate the turn signals, and the exposed gas tank out back has been painted to match the lower body. In fact, the only piece that is traditional on this hot rod is the grille (although it is covered with a bug guard) and front cross bar. Not often do we come across a very well-done '32 Chevy streetrod (they're usually Fords), but even more rare is to find one with a steel body, fenders, and running boards. This is a very special car.
Inside, this 1930s machine has been completely rebuilt and customized to be a very comfortable cruiser. It starts with the modern dark gray vinyl interior with light gray suede inserts, neatly wrapped around supportive bucket seats borrowed from a later-model vehicle. A similar pattern is continued in the rear seat, and shared by the door panels and headliner, all brought together by the plush carpets. The driver gets a trick billet steering wheel with a tilting column, and just beyond that view are a full set of high-end Classic Instruments gauges that are centralized in the dash. These are featured in a dashboard painted with the same shade of silver finish found on the exterior, and joined by polished Vintage A/C controls and vents. The switches from the power windows and headlines are tucked away under the dash, and the tall billet shifter was incorporated into a custom middle console that also includes a hidden compartment behind it. But beyond these upgrades, there is a feeling this one was meant to be more than just a trailer queen. It was always destined for the road.
Under the hood, a familiar 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 provides the kind of reliable power that makes for a great-driving rod. Brightly finished with lots of dress-up parts but nothing too radical, it starts easily and hums down the road for mile after mile without complaint. An Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake help the block breathe, while the block-hugging headers that feed twin glasspack-style mufflers handle the exhaust. The chassis is sensibly built with modern front disc brakes up front and coilovers in the rear, and a 10-bolt GM rear axle with highway-friendly gears inside. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spins the gears and it sits right on a set of flashy 17-inch 5-spoke chrome wheels with staggered 205/50/17 front and 245/50/17 rear blackwall performance radials that fill the fenders perfectly.
This is a hot rod that is unique in its appearance, its features, and its bow tie brand. It has all the good things you want when it's time to bring "something unique" to the car show. And with only 5,780 miles on the build, this rare, desirable, early 30's steel body Chevrolet won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!
