Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.

Classic Car Overview

Hot rods are a strange bunch-there are the zillion dollar pro-built cars that you cant touch without a clean-suit, and then there are the ones that get dragged to every local cruise night, but never quite seem to be finished. Streetrods in between, meaning finished pieces ready to be shown that can also be driven and enjoyed immediately, are surprisingly hard to find. Thats why this beautifully built 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Slantback Sedan 2-door is so appealing; with a powerful 350 V8/2004R drivetrain built to handle the most ambitious of Power Tours, a custom frame and performance suspension underneath, a bespoke leather interior inside, and red-hot paint job outside, this one-of-a-kind 38 checks all the boxes. Theres something about late-1930s GM cars that just ideally lend themselves to customization, and the high-end restoration and custom work completed on this gorgeous Chevrolet truly make it a one-of-a-kind hotrod sedan. It first glance it might just look like a slick 2-door sedan body, but theres a lot more to the story than that. The original trunk (hump) was removed to convert the vehicle into a smoothed slantback, the top was chopped by 1.5 inches, and the rear end was mini-tubbed to give this hotrod a crouched, ready-to-pounce curb appeal. The work didnt stop there though, as the front fenders were widened at the leading edge, smoothie running boards were added, the windshield and rear window were flush-mounted, vent windows were removed, and all the door handles were shaved. All the bodywork was expertly done, and its clear that someone spent a lot of time and effort getting it to its current condition. Other than the hood the body is all-steel including the fenders and running boards, and everything lines up very nicely. The Tornado Red paint is modern urethane (borrowed from a 2016 VW), so its durable and miles perfect for a car thats going to see actual road duty, and although there are a few minor imperfections that can be found upon closer examination, the finish is top driver-quality all-around. With the bumpers deleted and most of the trim removed, theres not a lot of brightwork to speak of, but thats okay because the ornate front grille, side mirrors, and oversized wheels provide plenty of bling. The interior is often the last place a hot rod builder finishes his work, and its usually a low priority once the car is on the road. However, in this tricked-out Chevy, the interior has been fully finished in white leather by the pros at D&D Specialty Cars. Front buckets from a late-model Grand Am were wrapped in high-end leather and anchor the cabin, while the sculpted folding rear seat, door panels, and headliner were all finished to match. The original dash was painted to follow the theme and its now filled with vintage-looking VDO digital/analog gauges housed inside a custom billet bezel, while the custom panel underneath was added to accommodate for the Vintage Air A/C system and modern JVC AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit. A Billet Specialties leather-wrapped steering wheel is the perfect fit inside, mounted atop an Ididit tilt column, and the options list rounds out with power windows, power locks, a Rostra cruise control system, and a super-cool Lokar floor shifter that manages the automatic transmission below. Theres a lot of stretch-out space in the rear seat for passengers, and when folded down the storage space is ample. Your traveling partner in this 37 is a built 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, which is as timeless as it is reliable, not to mention powerful; this car probably has about four times as much power now as it did when it was new. The rebuilt Chevy 350 V8 was bored .030 over and features flat-top pistons, a Comp Cams camshaft, an Edelbrock 600CFM 4-barrel carb atop an Edelbrock Performer intake up top, a Walker aluminum radiator that keeps it cool, and an HEI distributor and ignition that gives it spark. Although the car was built to drive, there is lots of bright stuff under the hood, including a set of chrome valve covers, chromed accessories, and a custom-painted Cadillac air cleaner. The engine turns an equally reliable, rebuilt 2004R automatic transmission thats been augmented with a shift kit, electric convertor lock-up, and a frame-mounted transmission cooler. The front suspension is a Mustang II independent setup with 2-inch dropped spindles, a power rack-and-pinion steering system, and power front disc brakes that help it drive like a modern car, while out back theres a triangulated 4-bar setup with coil-over shocks and a rear end out of a 1970 Maverick filled with 3.25 gears inside. Shorty headers feed into a custom Flowmaster dual exhaust system that burbles along at cruising speeds, and the look is finished off with fender-filling Billet Specialties alloys wrapped in 205/50/16 front and 255/50/17 performance radials. Go ahead and look at all the rods for sale. Note how many ads include the words just needs X to be finished. A lot, right? This 38 Chevy needs nothing to hit the road in style this summer, and it will pick up a trophy just about anywhere you show it as well. Call now!
