WELL-BUILT '36 STREETROD, CUSTOM PAINT/INTERIOR, 350 V8, MUSTANG II FRONT END!!
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've been taught, some sedans look downright awesome when given the full treatment.
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 original red steel with traditional glass black fenders and running boards, it's likely not this car's original color combination but it does look right. The body is 100% GM steel (sans fenders/boards) to capture the full-look, although there are a few flourishes here and there, from the custom rear bumpers framing the faired-in license plate to the late-model Cadillac taillights frenched into the rear deck to the shaved front bumper. Fit and finish are quite 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, 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 properly so they're still usable as intended.
The interior sticks with traditional hot-rodding style, offering gray tweed upholstery, bucket seats up front, and the original bench in back. More tweed covers the door panels and dash, offering a vintage-looking pattern that's neither too ornate nor too plain, and it all remains in outstanding condition thanks to tweed's tendency to wear like iron. The original dash has been dressed up with a billet gauge panel full of white-faced gauges from Classic Instruments and a molded in Chevy Bowtie emblem in the center. A leather-wrapped steering wheel on a tilt column looks awesome, and for entertainment, there's a JVC AM/FM/CD stereo tucked under the dash. 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. There's even a space-saver spare, just in case.
The most critical ingredient in any rod is the powertrain, and this Chevy delivers with a 350 cubic inch V8 that has been neatly wedged between the flowing front fenders. Topped by an aluminum mid-rise Edelbrock 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, a trick air cleaner, and contrasting red plug wires that add some flash. A big Walker radiator keeps things cool and that big cool can on the firewall looks a lot like a vintage oil filter. Underneath you'll find a Mustang II 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 means cruising is simple, and the dual exhaust system features big mufflers for a mellow sound that doesn't get annoying on long trips. Sparkling Cragar mag wheels contrast with the inky black paint and wear staggered 195/70/14 front and 205/70/15 rear tires.
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!
