Automobiles designed in the 1930s are pretty unique and easily
identifiable. They became more aerodynamic and streamlined than
their predecessors and were celebrating advances in technology
along the way. The style is often referred to a "streamlined
modern". These days, Street Rods fast forward through 80 years of
additional technological advances and apply those to the beautiful
look of those early cars. Like this beautiful '36 5-Window coupe.
Check it out.
Letting those looks speak for themselves, the body of this car has
been left completely stock. However, there was considerable care
taken to insure that all the panels were properly aligned and the
surfaces meticulously prepared before it was coated in that classic
Red paint. The look is kept clean and understated with even the
tall vertical grill, which is frequently dressed in chrome, kept
body color. That allows the rest of the chrome to shine that much
brighter, like the bold line of it running up the center of that
grill, under the flying hood ornament, then trailing back along the
top of the hood. Headlights are proudly perched between the hood
and the gently curved front fenders. The roof line flows up, over,
and down over the passenger compartment, then smoothly over the
trunk. Simple chrome bumpers dress out the front and the rear and
running boards are a '30s classic feature.
Open the door and you will find a wonderful Tan interior that is a
mix of classic look and modern tech. The door panels are simple but
elegant with vertical pleats running from top to bottom. Bucket
seats are a modern addition, but are stitched, old world style, in
pleated leather with smooth side bolsters. The woodgrain steering
wheel is absolutely gorgeous with a billet hub and bowtie center
button mounted on a tilt column along with a billet shifter.
Dolphin gauges keep track of speed on the right and engine
functions on the left with a separate, auxiliary tach mounted just
to the left of the column. A custom, leather wrapped center console
holds power window switches as well as a Kenwood AM/FM/CD player
with speakers mounted behind the seats for your listening pleasure.
The huge trunk in this car is as nicely trimmed out as the
interior, so go ahead, load up with luggage or lawn chairs and
coolers and head out for adventure.
Open that piano hinged hood, and you will find a nicely dressed out
383 cubic inch motor nestled down in a spotless engine bay. The
firewall is polished up so it reflects the light shining off all
the chrome on the engine. It starts with the Edelbrock air filter
assembly that feeds the Edelbrock carburetor and Offenhauser
intake. It is joined by chrome valve covers with Chevrolet in
script pressed into them, as well as a chrome alternator and master
cylinder cover. The air conditioner is polished up nicely too and
there is an Accel HEI ignition system sending spark to the plugs
through red wires. Spent gasses head out through shorty headers and
cherry bomb style mufflers and give this car a nice rumbling sound.
A solid axle on leaf springs gets the power to the rear wheels
while the front end has rack and pinion steering and front disc
brakes to provide good handling and great stopping ability. The
rubber meets the road through 235/75R15s in the rear and 205/75R15s
in the front mounted on chromed U.S. Wheel alloys.
1930s style with turn of the century comfort and convenience. Come
on down and check out this sweet ride.
