1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe- Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville #137
For sale in our Nashville showroom is a black beauty 1932 Ford 5-window Coupe. This little deuce coupe for sale was spared at no expense and shows, in the quality of this build! Built for show and go, this monster of a ’32 Ford has just about everything you could ever want in a hot rod. With just over 1,000 miles on the complete build, it’s barely broken in and is ready for the show circuit or any late night cruise! Powering the hot rod is a massive 502 cubic inch big block Chevy V8 engine. Putting out over 500 horsepower, it puts out even more torque! If you were to ever use the word “butt-clenching” in your life, this would be the time! Dressed with more goodies than you can shake a stick at, you can tell that this Ford means business. The Sanderson headers run to stainless steel dual exhaust which has been fully wrapped, to dissipate unwanted rattles, noise, and heat. Backing that big block is a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission with a Lakewood bellhousing, hydraulic Centerforce clutch, and a custom shifter. Nothing says custom hot rod for sale like a big block engine and a stick shift transmission! The custom Wiles driveshaft with 1350 U-joints churns the power down to the polished and custom Currie 9″ rear end. The rear end is loaded with a Truetrac limited slip center section with 3.50 gears, thanks to Randy’s ring and pinion. The Truetrac limited slip throws the power to the pavement through 31-spline axles, directly to a set of American Racing Torq-Thrust II aluminum/alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli performance tires. With all of this power and GO, you’re going to need some STOP too! No need to fear, because this 1932 Ford Coupe for sale is surrounded on all four corners with high performance Wilwood drilled and slotted disc brakes with show finished and polished calipers, as well as finned brake covers. Not only can this hot rod Ford for sale stop and go, but it can maneuver too, thanks to a suspension that’s worth mentioning. The frame is a top-notch Bebop frame, with custom components. The front end consist of a Pete and Jakes suspension with a polished aluminum “Super Bell” axle, chrome coil-over shocks, springs, and spindles. The Flaming River Vega steering box with polyester joints and shaft make steering a breeze, especially when added to the tilt column and Banjo steering wheel. The rear suspension consists of a Pete and Jakes 4-bar set-up with chrome Viper aluminum coil-over shocks and chrome TCI anti-sway bar. Once you get past the technicalities of the performance built suspension, you’ll notice that all of it has been built to a show quality and finish as well! With a suspension this nice, you need an exterior to match. The body is a New Age built beauty, with fold out windshield, roll-up glass doors, and roll-down back window. The paint is a stunning shade of black, using PPG base coat/clear coat. Walking around this ’32 Ford for sale, you see all the elegant and subtle touches, like: So-Cal custom mirrors, Rootlieb louvered 3-piece steel hood and grill shell with “Dan Fink” hood-and-hinge set-up, Mighty Wipers, ’50 Pontiac blue-dot taillights, and loads upon loads of polished and chromed accents. You know you have a one-off show piece when you have a vehicle that looks equally as good in “black-and-white” as it does in color. The interior is so simplistic, it’s almost modern. The Stewart Warner gauges are gorgeous and luxurious, especially when added to the custom gauge cluster. The painless wiring is neatly tucked, while the black leather Glide-seat welcomes you to take a seat. The car has all the rumble you’d want inside the cab, without the heat and rattles, thanks to the double insulation of Dynamat sheeting. Even from the ground floor with the Lokar pedals, this resto-rod for sale was put together with the finest parts and pieces. In the trunk you’ll find the “Tanks” fuel tank assembly, which blends in ever so smoothly with the rest of the finished trunk. It’s amazing to have such a minimalistic approach to a hot rod, yet still be adorned with such high quality parts and amenities. Simply put, this car is an outright show winner and is ready to take home the gold!
