1934 Chevrolet Other Additional Info:

Beautiful Chevrolet that’s a mix of original and restored components. Believed to be 32,659 original miles. Runs and drives very well, handsome original interior, everything works. A stylish alternative to the usual low-cost hobby cars.
We believe the shiny black paint on this Chevy is largely original, although we suspect the fenders have been repainted at some point in the distant past. Whatever the case, it has a fantastic vintage look that is comfortable and authentic, but not tired. Our detail shop managed to bring up a wonderful gloss in the black paint and aside from some minor checking on the fenders, it’s in great condition. For an upscale look, there’s a cream-colored triple pinstripe along the belt moldings and a metal cover for the rear-mounted spare tire. The chrome is probably too nice to be original, and it sparkles against the black paint, giving the car a very polished look. The only part of the entire car that might raise an eyebrow are the running board mats, which are unquestionably original—they show some wear and age, but then again, they fit in with the car’s overall look. The ’34 Fords might be more popular, but they certainly aren’t any prettier than this Chevy.
We believe the brown mohair interior is completely original, including seats, door panels, and headliner. The carpets have likely been replaced, as the plastic heel pad on the driver’s side would not have been there in 1934. The wide bench seat remains comfortable and supportive with only minor wear on the driver’s side, and it’s important to note that the camera’s flash actually makes it look worse than it is—the interior looks better in person, not worse. The big steering wheel makes this slick little coupe easy to handle and for 1934, all the gauges were moved in front of the driver and set into a woodgrained panel. All the gauges work properly and the rest of the controls are very simple: knobs for the headlights and hand throttle, an accessory switch on the left side of the dashboard for the heater fan, and, well, that’s about it. The massive trunk will carry all the gear you need for touring and is still upholstered with what appear to be its original carpets and side panels.
For 1934, the Master Series Chevrolets received a larger 207 cubic inch OHV inline-6 engine rated at 80 horsepower—competitive with the Ford V8. It’s nicely tuned so it starts easily without any special attention and idles so smoothly that you might think it has stalled. On the road, it pulls eagerly and makes pleasing 6-cylinder sounds but otherwise stays in the background. It stays cool, makes plenty of oil pressure, the generator keeps the battery topped off, and the detailing under the hood suggests someone has been in there getting it right. There’s correct corporate gray engine enamel, proper hose clamps, a big oil bath air filter on top of a single-barrel Carter W-1 carburetor, and proper hardware throughout. There’s time and money invested here and it shows.
The 3-speed manual transmission offers synchromesh on 2nd and 3rd, so it takes no special skills to drive this Chevy, and gear ratios make the most of the engine’s torque. 4.10 gears were standard equipment, so it’s perky around town and doesn’t mind cruising at 50 MPH on the open road. You’ll note those two massive shock/spring units on the front wheels—a Dubonnet-type independent front suspension that GM called “knee-action” but which was actually licensed from a European company. It gives the Chevy superior road manners compared to its Ford competition and the design of the system makes this car completely immune to bump-steer so it tracks beautifully even over broken pavement. The floors are extremely clean with no issues, even in the trunk pan where trouble always starts. Brakes are still mechanical drums, but they’re effective and stop the coupe without any drama. The exhaust system has the right tone, not loud but not invisible, either, and the Chevy sounds polished at idle or under load. 17-inch wire wheels were new for 1934 and carry flashy 5.50-17 wide whites that really make it sparkle.
