1936 Chevrolet Other Deluxe Additional Info:

Now that a lot of us have kids and families, full-sized hot rods are starting to make a lot of sense. Take this 1936 Chevy Master Deluxe 2-door sedan for example: lots of room, a decent trunk, and still carrying all the upgrades you'd want in your next rod. And contrary to what you might've been taught, some sedans look downright awesome when given the full treatment, as is evident by the slick silver-and-black tuxedo that this body-off restored hotrod wears today.
Sleek and aerodynamic, this Master Deluxe was the top-of-the-line Chevy in '36 and shows off its Art-Deco influences throughout, a look that hasn't gone out of style and probably never will. Finished in all steel adorned in beautiful silver paint contrasted with traditional black fenders and running boards, it's likely not this car's original color combination but it does look incredibly good. The body, fenders and running boards are 100% steel to capture the full-look, and they were wise to not chop, shave, or cut-up any part of that original design, because the look is so darn timeless you'd be hard-pressed to ever call it dated or for that modern, regardless of what decade you were standing in. It's just such a killer look, why mess with a piece of classic American art? Fit and finish are very good, and the doors close with that distinctive sound that only vintage cars demonstrate. Most of the original trim's still in place, too, including the lovely waterfall grille, hood trim, that lovely hood emblem, and scrolled door handles that look like miniature works of art, even on a Chevy. Tinted glass all around makes it comfortable inside and updates the look, and even the running boards are trimmed-out properly so they're still usable as intended. Sure, it's got a few signs of use after 22k miles have been put on the clock, but it still shows incredibly well and is worthy of pulling a few more local car show trophies in its day.
The interior sticks with traditional hot-rodding style, offering gray cloth and vinyl upholstery that matches the exterior color combination beautifully - with adjustable bucket seats borrowed from an Oldsmobile Calais up front, and a matching roomy bench out back. Matching patterns thoroughly cover the door panels, offering a vintage-looking design that's neither too ornate nor too plain, and it all remains in great condition thanks to the material's tendency to wear like iron. Plush carpets below insulate the cabin from road noise, while the taught headliner above ties the entire 2-door cabin together nicely. The original dash was painted in a matching silver finish to mimic the exterior and is dressed up with a custom gauge panel full of black-faced gauges from VDO. In the center of the dash are controls for the aftermarket A/C system, with vents neatly stashed underneath that blow R134a treated air hard and cold throughout the cabin. A leather-wrapped Grant GT steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column looks awesome, and for entertainment, there's a Sony AM/FM/CD/AUX/Bluetooth stereo tucked discreetly into the glove compartment – a very idea that keeps the original dash intact. The trunk is big enough to carry a surprising amount of luggage on your next road trip, and is fully upholstered so you won't be embarrassed when it's time to unload your gear, and there's even a full-size spare, just in case.
The most critical ingredient in any rod is the powertrain, and this Chevy delivers with a 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor that has been neatly wedged between the flowing front fenders. Topped by an aluminum dual-plane intake and a big Holley carburetor, it gives this vintage sedan the moves of a muscle car. It's also neatly dressed with plenty of chrome and polished pieces, a shiny open-element air cleaner, and neatly detailed components that really pop against the smoothed and painted firewall. A big Griffin aluminum radiator with an auxiliary electric fan keeps things cool and the block-hugging Hedman shorty headers help the block breathe with ease. Underneath you'll find a Heidts Mustang II-style front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering and power disc brakes, so it drives like a much more modern car. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spins a durable 10-bolt rear end, so cruising is simple, and the 2.5-inch custom dual exhaust system features big Flowmaster 40 mufflers for a mellow yet throaty sound that doesn't get annoying on long trips. Sparkling Weld Racing wheels contrast with the inky black paint on the fenders and wear staggered 205/65/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials with plenty of grip.
A well-built rod that needs no excuses, this '36 Chevy combines plenty of style and performance with the space to take the family with you. Call today!
