Do a quick Google image search for "hot rod" or "street rod" and you'll see two predominant patterns: a whole lot of flames and a whole lot of Fords. While it's hard not to love a good set of flames, brand loyalty can definitely stand between some enthusiasts and a Ford. Heck, even if you're a blue oval diehard, it's just nice to see something a bit different every now and then. That's why this 1935 Chevrolet Master is such a refreshing change of pace. From its leather-lined cockpit and massaged 350 to its thoroughly updated chassis, this bowtie is one of the coolest classics on the block. If you're ready for a different kind of rod at a fraction of the build cost, take a minute to learn about this sweet Chevy!
The beneficiary of a 4-year build that was completed in 2016, this restoration-fresh sedan is one stylish street rod! On the outside of the car, genuine Chevrolet steel was relieved of its factory wood, fitted with fiberglass fenders and transformed into a sleek canvas that features a collection of excellent gaps. That canvas was highlighted in a rich combination of GM Active Red Metallic and Chrysler Linen Gold Pearl. And that slick 2-stage was detailed with black pinstripes and a silver divider stripe. At the front of the car's elegant profile, a polished grille centers a winged bowtie between polished headlights, an Art Deco grille topper and a polished bumper. Behind that grille, a stainless-trimmed hood fronts an electric cowl, electric wipers and a smoked greenhouse that backs a 1-piece windshield. At the sides of that glass, hidden hinges found factory suicide doors between polished handles, custom mirrors and stainless-trimmed running boards. And at the back of those boards, 2-inch widened fenders plant custom stands and LED taillights between a stainless-trimmed trunk, a second polished bumper and polished exhaust tips.
Fold the hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of balanced GM small block that transforms this classic from a blue-collar courier into a wing-footed warrior. At the top of the clean mill, a heartbeat-themed air cleaner funnels wind into FiTech Go EFI 4 600HP fuel injection. That power adder floods a painted high-rise intake with the help of a quality Lokar linkage. At the back of that plane, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences spark between an MSD Blaster 2 coil and thick Mallory Pro Wires. Below those wires, flame-themed valve covers hang polished breathers over lucid roller rockers and lightweight aluminum heads. Beneath those heads, a Comp Mutha Thumpr cam slings spent gases through cast exhaust manifolds. In front of those tubes, a polished VIPS accessory drive spins a polished alternator next to a polished AC compressor. Cooling comes courtesy of a beefy aluminum radiator, which is planted between a big puller fan and a polished expansion tank. And niceties like Lokar dipsticks, a polished master cylinder and a color-keyed engine bay thoroughly enhance the car's performance and appearance.
Combining a Mustang II front-half with a Chevrolet Super Sport rear-clip, this Master provides a comfortable, durable ride that's spiced by improved handling. At the center of the car's boxed and powder-coated frame, a proven 700R4 4-speed, mated to a 2,600 RPM stall, sends torque to a dressed posi-traction pumpkin that's fitted with 3.43 gears. At the front of that awesome drivetrain, power rack-and-pinion steering makes quick work of tight spots and sharp turns. At the corners of the car, vacuum-assisted discs provide smooth and solid stops. And all this mechanical goodness rolls on snazzy Cragar Street Pros, which spin 235/70R15 Cooper Lifeliner Classic IIs in front of 255/65R17 BF Goodrich Long Trail T/As.
Peer through the car's power-operated windows and you'll find a custom Taupe interior that's clean, simple and comfortable. Power-operated seats stretch soft leather hides under 3-point belts. Between those seats, a custom console props Vintage Air Gen IV climate control above remote-controlled Jensen touchscreen audio that features Bluetooth capability, GPS navigation and a backup camera. In front of that island, a 2-tone dash frames classy Dolphin gauges in polished billet trim. And in front of the driver, a polished, leather-wrapped steering wheel laps a polished, tilting column.
