1934 Chevrolet Master
Car for sale by Laferriere Classic Cars in Smithfield, Rhode Island 02917
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Series DA. 80bhp, 206.8 cu. in. overhead valve inline six-cylinder engine with three-speed manual transmission, front suspension via independent Dubonnet type Knee Action and rear suspension via semi-elliptic leaf springs, live rear axle, four-wheel mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 112″
Both Standard and Master models retained six-cylinder power, but modifications to the Master’s 206-cubic-inch engine boosted horsepower from 65 to 80. The Standard series repeated 1933’s 181-cubic-inch 60-horsepower engine. Chevrolet’s big news this year was adoption of “Knee-Action,” the sealed Dubonnet type of independent front suspension. Standard equipment on the Master series, it would not be offered on Standard models for a few more years. Master models, while retaining the previous year’s styling theme, looked heavier than their 1933 counterparts — which they were, by some 225 pounds, about 60 pounds of which was due to the Dubonnet “knees.” Three horizontal hood louvers replaced the doors used in 1932-33, and wheels were reduced in size to 17 inches. Free Wheeling was optional on Master models only.
The Standard line was expanded to five body styles. Prices were raised by $40 on Standard models and as much as $100 on the Master series. Production increased by 29 percent, with the Standard coach scoring the biggest gain.
The Chevrolet offered here has an older restoration that has maintained well although it shows signs of years of enjoyment and use. Starts easily and drives well. Its 4.11:1 rear axle will allows for comfortable cruising speeds. The pictures should clearly show its cosmetic condition.
Most 1934 Chevrolet’s were sedans, and most coupes were the Business model, without a rumble seat. This is an opportunity to acquire an unusually well-accessorized, most uncommon and highly desirable version of a very attractive automobile from the 1930s.
