Classic Car Overview

Look through our inventory and youll see plenty of 1940 Fords, but oddly, not nearly as many Chevrolets. The big two have been duking it out since the mid-20s, and if your tastes run to the pre-war era, you owe it to yourself to take a good look at this gorgeous 1940 Chevrolet Master 85 Streetrod. Professionally built with a fuel-injected crate 350 and a lot of luxury and convenience items, this is the perfect rod for the person who loves to drive. The Burgundy paint was expertly applied at the time of this 40s extensive restoration just over 1,000 miles ago, and on the curvaceous body it looks amazing, bringing out the details and giving it a show-quality glow out in the sunlight. The body is OEM steel that hasnt been chopped or modified in any way. And why would you? The Master is already one of the most handsome cars of the era, with tidy proportions, cool faired-in headlights, and a timeless profile. Bodywork is first-rate, with a lot of extra care used on the final finish. That means tons of block sanding and hand work to get all the surfaces flat, and an expert behind the paint gun to lay it down so beautifully. It shows very little use, and thanks to the wonders of urethane technology, itll look this good for years to come. A few custom liberties were taken, specifically the introduction of PT Cruiser door and rear hatch handles, deleted bumpers fore and aft, and LED taillights. The hood was also stripped of its stock trim for a more streamlined look, and 3M rock chip protection film was installed on the front end and running boards to protect the beautiful finish. You couldnt ask for a better place to spend some time than the gorgeous tan leather interior. Designed and installed by award winner Aaron Davis, the presentation and level of comfort inside the cabin is second to none currently in our inventory. The leather front seats were swapped in from a modern Porsche, and both driver and passenger are power operated. The backseat area was upholstered to match, and theres plenty of room for your larger friends. Nestled between the front buckets, the custom center console is beautifully designed and houses all the switches and controls for the cabin, along with a Lokar shifter that controls the 700R4 transmission. Theres also Vintage A/C, power windows and locks, a Flaming River tilt steering column, and a thumping 1,000 watt stereo with speakers scattered throughout the passenger compartment. The original dash uses Classic Instruments gauges for a cool effect against the burgundy finish, and things like the A/C vents and controls are nicely integrated. The massive trunk has been finished with matching carpets and side panels. If youre going cross-country, this is definitely the car to take. Cruising is easy thanks to the Edelbrock fuel-injected 350 crate motor under the hood. Making plenty of horsepower, it moves the slick Chevy with authority that the original inline-six could never manage. With an Edelbrock EFI and intake, HEI ignition, and a full Ron Francis wiring harness along with a 4-bolt block, its a reliable powerplant thats also a party on the road. Theres enough chrome on the engine to make opening the hood an event, and thanks to a Stage 3 Bowtie 700R4 transmission, it handles the power from the small block without issue and cruises effortlessly. Out back theres a Ford 9 TruTrac rear with 3.73 gears, and the front suspension is an independent Mustang II setup with solid stainless tubular A-arms and Carrera coilovers. Sway bars are found front and rear, and along with power steering and power 4-disc brakes, driving this steel 40 is an absolute dream. Sanderson ceramic coated headers feed into a 3-inch dual exhaust that features Magnaflow mufflers, and the low rumble is absolutely fantastic at almost every rev point. Classic Cragar 5-spoke wheels wear BFGoodrich radials that really fill the big wheel wells and finish the look. Fully sorted and ready to go cross-country, this awesome Chevy coupe is a great show and go cruiser thatll make you smile every time you see it. Call today!
