We love the look of a car like this 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe
Business Coupe because it has the sleek and detailed lines that
instantly announce a pre-war classic has arrived. So it's a true
special treat to find a correctly restored example that is also
offered at a value price.
This coupe was given a comprehensive restoration over two decades
ago, and when you pay for quality, it lasts. That kind of timeline
seems ideal of a car like this. The shine from the factory-correct
black paint really knows how to send you nostalgia into overdrive,
and at the same time, it doesn't look too modern that people will
accuse of over-correcting history. The black paint is also great
canvas for the full red pinstripe package. And when we say full
package, we mean it. You see the distinctive details in the tall
grille, hood ornament, on the wheels, and running the profile all
the way through the door line. New chrome, amber fog lights, and
bright whitewalls are all part of this very detailed and very
vintage total package.
When you open the door, the tan cloth interior has a classic
pattern and that classic mohair feeling. But recent investments
mean this feels far fresher than anything from the '30s. As a true
business coupe, storage is a priority. So you get a proper parcel
shelf, as well as room behind the forward-tilting seat. This has a
great vintage motoring atmosphere - from the feeling of the
big/grippy steering wheel, to the look of the factory gauge panel.
Even the original AM radio is still there for display. And while
this has the right time capsule feeling, there are also some later
handy additions with the turn signals and heat/defrost setup that
make this one far nicer for Sunday morning drives.
The engine bay has just as much attention to detail as the rest of
the car. The correct A/C air cleaner, Carter, downdraft carb, dual
horns, and so much more make it great to life the butterfly hood
and show off the full tidy package. Chevy's hardy 206 CID inline
six remains a strong-runner in this coupe. The proper restoration
keeps a confident feeling on the road, and the three-speed manual
transmission keeps you at the center of it all.
Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this was the kind
of business coupe for the successful salesman who had arrived in
life. And that same attitude only gets better with age on a classic
like this. So don't miss out, call today!
