Space 15: 1932 Ford Sport Coupe – $88,000 OBRO

Apr 2020 | Sold Cars

Mention ’32-’34 Ford Hot Rod and most enthusiasts’ visions gravitate towards either the roadster or three-window coupe body style.  A much less variant was the Sport Coupe, which used the metal-framed doors of the coupes with a stay-in-place fabric top having a similar appearance to a traditional folding unit.  One example of this rare body style forms the basis of this all-steel 1932 Ford Sport Coupe built by Bruce’s Rod Shop of Spring, Texas (just north of Houston) in the mid-1990’s is this full-fendered hot rodded example rarely available for purchase.  Bob the owner nicknamed this car “Elvira” and has asked his dear friend Grady, to help sell this car in addition to several others found here on our Reserved Parking section. This is an extremely high quality build with a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this-price of $88,000 or best reasonable offer.  If you are serious about purchasing this quality street rod, you can start the conversation by either calling Grady at (713) 819-1103 or emailing him here.  Currently located in Farmington, New Mexico if needed we can help you arrange quality collector car shipping carrier.

The builder’s at Bruce’s started with an all-steel donor body mated to a modified frame that’s been fully boxed and reinforced.  Powering this coupe is a 1995 vintage Corvette 350 cubic inch LT-1 small block featuring a Jet Hot coated exhaust system. Handling the power is a column-shifted TurboHydramatic 350 automatic transmission that twists a narrowed four-link mounted Ford nine inch rear end while a Wildwood power four wheel disc brake system provides the “whoa” whenever called upon.  Personally, we like how well the polished American Racing five-spoke wheels contrast the deep black paint of this build.

Elvira was built and used for comfortable, long-distance Rod Runs and the 3,500 miles traveled is proof positive of how well this street rod rides and drives.  While the matching rumble seat provides a minimal amount of storage space, a matching trailer included with the sale more than makes up for it with the carrying capacity for a weekend’s worth of luggage and detailing supplies.  Good luck with the purchase!
