1935 Chevrolet EC Standard 2 Door Sedan #112 The 35 Chevrolet Standard is an interesting case on several counts. Introduced in mid-1933 as the Standard Mercury line, Chevrolets price-leader junior series, (Model EC), was a totally different car than the top-of-the-line Master De Luxe, (Models ED and EA), in 1935. The Standard sported a shorter wheelbase, 107 inches versus 113, and a little less power from the 206.8 CID stovebolt six, getting along with 74 hp while the Master De Luxe was rated at 80 hp. Also, Master De Luxe models were available with GMs Knee-Action independent front suspension, (Model EA), while the Standard used a plain beam axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs in front. The Standard for 35 also employed totally different sheet metal, the Master De Luxe series grew larger and more rounded and swollen that year, following the industry trends of the moment along with stablemates Pontiac and Oldsmobile. The Master De Luxe also adopted GMs all-steel, Turret Top roof and body construction. The Chevrolet Standard line, in contrast, was lean, trim, and athletic in design, almost Ford-like, (in a manner of speaking). Its a classic look that holds up very well today. For consignment, this nice barn find Chevrolet Standard. This 2-door mid 1930s design with a slightly shorter body, canvas top, cowled hood, running boards and early design, its truly a gangster car. Black paint for the body and for the fenders and running boards, its got a nice patina and steel spoked wheels. NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY Exterior Coming to you in barn find condition, this exterior, while presenting with some chipping, staining, dulling, and surface rust showing through, there is no visible invasive rust to note. The running boards are losing their rubber covering and the fenders both front and rear are intact and retain their wonderful French curve design. 2 doors are seen on this sedan and display with simplistic door handles in pitted chrome on the exterior. Up front, the once chromed grille is now presenting in need of restoration with the chrome dulling, rusted and pitted. Single headlights flank the grille and are attached with a post that mounts to the front fenders and grille surround. Also, simple bumpers are seen on the front and rear of this car, both needing rechroming. The long cowled hood sports a trio of vent louvers on either side covering the unrestored engine bay, and butts up to the radiator cover up front. The roof is a canvas panel and is cracking from age but has not pulled away from the steel substructure. Black steel 17-inch wire wheels are all around and are wrapped in thin rubber tires which have good tread but are showing dry rot in the sidewalls. Interior In need of restoration with soiled and stained pale green broadcloth coverings making up the door panels, sagging headliner, and wrap around rear panel. Buckets are noted for the front and a bench for the rear, with the buckets covered in off white decorative slipcovers and the bench wearing a Mexican blanket. We do not know the condition of the underlying material, but their original shape is still retained. Factory brown mohair is on for the rear side panels, and provides a contrast to the pale green. Up front is the original unrestored dash in black and a centrally located trio of gauges and various pull knobs. A black Bakelite steering wheel fronts the dash and for the floors the carpet is gone exposing the mixture of wood and steel supports that make up the flooring. Drivetrain A black inline 6-cylinder engine is within the engine bay under the cowled hood with patina and surface rust, mainly confined to the oil bath air cleaner. This Stovebolt weighs in at 206.8 cubes and it has a single 1-barrel carburetor on the side and a 3-speed manual transmission is attached to the back. Bringing up the back is a 4.11 geared rear axle. Undercarriage Unfortunately this car was not put up on our lift, so much like when my wife asks where all of our money went Ill give just the facts. A full frame gives support to the mix of wood and steel flooring and the corners are sporting mechanical drum brakes. Providing the ride are leaf springs for and aft, unlike the Master Deluxe which was equipped with a coil sprung independent front suspension. Drive-Ability We were able to turn the engine over by hand but no attempt to start it was made. Thanks to minimal rust though this car has excellent bones as a foundation for a restoration or street rod. A survivor barn find project car, right out of the gangster era, with tons of Art Deco design ready, willing and able to fulfill your mid 30s dream.
