Authentic, affordable, and absolutely stylish, this 1940 Chevrolet
Deluxe Business Coupe knows how to turn back the clock with true
This pre-war Chevy makes a great first impression, and that all
starts with the paint. The Kingston Gray is the factory-correct
color, and it feels like the kind of color you get with an art deco
kind of style. The paint was refreshed later in life, and so it has
a good mix of proper shine and aged-in classic. We also love the
details in the paint, like how you have a full-length red
pinstripe, and that coordinates so well with the red wheels and
whitewall tires. The grille absolutely goes with the art deco
style, and it's part of a complete and classic brightwork package
that includes the hood ornament, two-piece wheel trim, and bumpers
with detailed overriders.
The time capsule presentation is continued inside. You have the
classic mohair fabric on the seats. It's part of a later
restoration, and just like the exterior, it has the right amount of
age to give you originality without staleness. Also, just like the
exterior, there's more great art deco style. So lovers of vintage
will love the full display on the dash. This is a business coupe,
and so the rear was about deleting the seat and having more storage
for vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, or whatever was going
door-to-door in this Chevy.
Chevy's inline-six was the backbone of the company for decades, so
it's great to see a year-correct 216 cubic-inch motor correctly
presented in the engine bay. These were known for a mixture of
durability and smoothness, and the way this motor fires up and runs
upholds that feeling in modern times. And you'll love the classic
feel of the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission as it
gives you proper control over this classic powerplant.
Complete with owner's manual and service manual, this is an
attention-grabbing cool cruiser. So when a pre-war classic is
affordably up for grabs, you know you need to act quickly to get it
home. Call today!!!
