Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
Every time you look at this 1934 Ford five-window hot rod, you're going to discover another great feature. From the supercharger, to the upgraded suspension, to the dual four-barrels on the Hemi V8, to the custom interior, to the copper paint... this coupe is an original steel-bodied true stunner. And don't forget to check out the signature on the dash.
The body is a genuine steel coupe, channeled and smoothed just enough, but retains the good looks of that came from Henry Ford steel. Of course no one in the 1930s could have imagined we'd have the kind of modern metallic paints we have today. The Crystal Copper on this car is the result of a serious investment in high quality paint, a professional hand, and plenty of clearcoat. And you see it all so well because this build has less than 1,300 miles on it since completion. While the paint and monster motor dominate your first impression, there's also a ton of cool details. There are classic pieces, like the new vinyl top and iconic waterfall grille. And that mixes with custom pieces, like the headlights mounted to the chassis, bumper delete, and integrated taillights. Plus, the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels have the extra wide rear set to give you the iconic Saturday night hero stance.
When you open the suicide doors, the leather interior is quite inviting. The shade of brown nicely coordinates with the exterior copper, and the pattern on the door panels matches the headliner. Plus, we all know you've noticed the ostrich pattern on the custom seat and dash for added distinction. You get a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, classic Stewart Warner gauge package, and tall Lokar shifter. And if you're not already convinced this was built to be a quarter-mile king, Don "Big Daddy" Garlits has even signed the dash!
You'll love looking out the windshield and gazing over that huge bright air grabber. Because just below that you know lies a beastly motor. This is a 331 Hemi V8 bored .030 over. Plus, there's a huge 671 blower and dual Holley 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors on top! The motor looks so fantastic that we dare you to find another component that could be polished or given a custom hammered copper look. But beyond just looking great, it gets the fundamentals right with features like Mallory ignition for a smooth starting total package. Those Zoomies have bafflers built right inside, so you get an awesome look that makes the ideal growl. The big motor is linked to a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that's built to handle the power. This feeds a reinforced 9-inch limited-slip rear with Moser axles and 3.89 gears, so you get confident take-offs. As you look underneath the car, you can see the frame has been boxed and reinforced to handle this custom's serious torque. Power like this need the right kind of control, that's why there's four-wheel power disc brakes, a four-link suspension up front, and the rear four-link also has a diagonal link and adjustable coilovers.
Complete with restoration photos, it takes time, money, and willpower to create something this thoroughly well-built. Or you can skip ahead in the trophy line by picking up this award-worthy, turn-key hot rod today. Call now!!!
