1935 Chevrolet Chevy Additional Info:

Has spent its life on the high desert in California, it is an outstanding example of a 35 3 window coupe. People ask if this car has only 40K miles then why does everything need to be rebuilt? 85 yrs ago some cars were lucky to make it 40-50 thousand miles with the no pressure oiling and other things!

BODYThe body is exceptional for an early Chevy, no rust out anywhere, all the wood that I have seen is in perfect condition, from 15 feet the paint looked great, but close up it was covered with crows foot. The paint was completely stripped down to the metal and primed before the low gloss black was applied, my goal was to have it look like it was just drug out of the barn unpainted and I think I accomplished that. I had a LaBaron Bonny interior installed at a cost of over $5,000. The Radio was rebuilt ($900), all gauges, lights and dome light work, Running boards were sent out and original mats installed, brakes and cables rebuilt, front has been rebuilt, tires are not new but very usable, I drive it locally every week. These cars are so rare I would say there probably are more Ford 32 little deuce coupes out there than 35 Chevy 3 window Coupes!!
The engine, trans, and diff. were disassembled and anything that had excessive wear was replaced, the engine had the following replaced.Block and rods rebabbitedCrank ground .010Oil pumpRebore and .030 pistonsNew valves, guides, springsHeads resurfaced and seats groundI had a custom core built for the radiator($1100) that has 40% more cooling, because I put it in parades and in NM it is usually around 100 degrees, the stock tanks were used and you can't tell it from the originalNew water pump and NOS generator and cutout
