1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Sedan
Replacing the Eagle in the early 30s was the Master and Master
Deluxe which was manufactured between 1933 and 1942. It was the
more expensive model from Chevrolet at the time with the Standard
being the inexpensive alternative. These years marked many changes
in automobile design as we saw the still very prominent fenders
start to be more incorporated into the body as well as the
headlights which were previously entirely separate components. This
1940 Master Deluxe is a very clean car that was built here in
Texas. It is all steel and entirely rust free. The paint/body work
was done by RK in Kerville, TX and the car wears a very nice Dodge
Viper Red paint. The car comes with a matching trailer that has
airbrushing of this 40 Chevy cruising down Route 66. The car wears
a lot of its original trim and chrome accents which are all shining
nicely with no pitting or issues. All of the glass is in good
condition as well and it has the two piece windshield up front.
Both the car and trailer have LED taillights and all of the
electrical components are working properly. Pictured you will see
the trailer wears a front bra to keep the paint protected but the
car comes with one as well. Both sit on a matching set of American
Racing Torque Thrust II Wheels with Chevy bowtie center caps.
The mechanical work was completed by Good Ol' Days in Ingram, TX
and was very well done. It has been driven 39,245 miles since so it
has been broken in but is still very fresh with a lot of life left.
The car has a 350 V8 crate motor and runs well. It has been fitted
with a polished aluminum intake, Edelbrock 600 cfm carb, polished
single wire alternator, polished AC compressor, polished valve
covers, Taylor 8mm spark plug wires, polished wire looms, Sanderson
headers, a K&N air filter, Mallory billet unilite distributor,
cool flex hoses, aftermarket Walker aluminum radiator, mechanical
fan with shroud, electric fan, billet overflow tank and pro master
coil. The car sounds great with a custom dual exhaust system that
exits through 4 Chevy bowtie tips. Backing up the motor is a 700R4
automatic transmission with B&M transmission cooler that
transfers power back to the 12 bolt posi rear end with 3:55 gears.
The front and rear suspension are from Chassis engineering and the
front is an independent suspension system. It has also been
upgraded with 9" disc brakes up front and there is a remote
reservoir for the dual master cylinder. Other nice components
include power steering, the relocated Optima red top battery, 19
gallon stainless tank, and custom fuel filler.
The interior is done in a Tan/Beige combination and was completed
by Anderson's in Ingram, TX. It really looks nice and is in great
shape. The ultra leather seats have suede inserts and Chevy bow tie
embroidering on the tops. There are matching lap belts throughout
including the rear bench seat. The dash is painted to match the
body and features a lot of the original features. The gauge cluster
has all been recalibrated and is working properly. Under the dash
an Am/FM raido with 10 disc CD changer as well as controls for the
Old Car AC have been mounted. In front of the driver sits a painted
tilt column topped off with a leather wrapped banjo steering wheel.
The trunk of the car is all nicely upholstered as well and houses a
spare and Chevy bow tie tool box. Storage is certainly no concern
though because in addition to the trunk you have the added trailer
making this is a car where you could load up your luggage and
cruise across the country.
If you are in the market for a solid street rod that you can take
anywhere, look no further!
