For Sale: 1937 Chevrolet Master in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1937 Chevrolet Master Sedan Streetrod is one of those simple, clean hotrods that's turn-key and ready to enjoy. With an uber-cool Dark Emerald Green paint job, a comfortable custom interior with a few creature comforts, and a strong 350 V8 under the hood, this 2-door streetrod sedan has a whole lot going for it. Chevy streetrods don't get the respect their Ford counterparts do, but with killer examples like this, maybe the tide is beginning to turn?

Instead of dealing with unfinished projects and their associated headaches, allow us to introduce you to this beautifully finished, fully functional, 100% sorted and turn-key 1937 Chevy two-door. There's not much you can do to improve the looks of these cars, and the builder wisely retained everything that makes them so attractive. Dig the bulging fenders, the running board design, the light-green accent line that encircles the topside of the vehicle, the super-cool art-deco headlights and blue-dot taillights, and the subtle louvered grilles in the sides of the hood. For a 'big' streetrod it looks fast just sitting still, a curb appeal that's enhanced by the kicked-up, raked stance and oversized 'Old Style' wheels that fill the big fenders. Big suicide doors, a Vee'd front windshield, and an incorporated 'hump' trunk are all trademarks of the year, and the upgraded paint color really makes this rod look timeless. That Dark Emerald Green color is tasteful enough to appease the pre-war enthusiasts, yet dark and sinister enough to satisfy the rank-and-file hotrodder, and because they use modern urethane paints it should look this good for years. Sure, it has some signs of use and some minor imperfections can be spotted upon closer examination, but when the paint was laid down on solid bodywork several years ago, they didn't cut any corners, and the results speak for themselves. The aforementioned light-green pinstripe breaks up the dark green paint just enough and highlights the original body moldings, and for contrast the chrome bumpers, hood ornament, and drop-dead gorgeous waterfall grille shine up beautifully. Is it perfect? No, it's been driven and enjoyed, but that also means it's sorted and ready to rock. No disappointments here.

No blankets or stuffy mohair seat covers inside, either. Instead, it's a very tasteful beige fabric passenger compartment that could almost pass original. The matching green strips in the front and rear bench seats complement the exterior paint nicely, and the beige-and-green scheme continues on the custom door panels, which also featured custom Bowtie script. Plush green carpets neatly insulate the cabin from road noise, and in keeping with the dual contrasting color theme a beige headliner was expertly installed above. The original dash was painted to match the body, and a custom instrument bezel was fixed ahead of the driver's position and filled with a set of S.S. White Technologies gauges that keep a close eye on the engine. Thankfully the restorers didn't cut the original dash up, leaving even the chrome accent strips and glove box clock during the build, and a custom color-matched panel was added underneath to house the Vintage Air R134a A/C system and upgraded Alpine AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo. The options list rounds out with a sporty Gant GT steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column, a couple auxiliary charge ports, and the billet column shifter that manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission below. Out back, the spacious and utilitarian trunk looks pretty much the same as it did when the car was new, and it's equipped with a spare tire and jack set and the relocated battery.

Under the hood you'll find a familiar 350 cubic inch V8, and those added cubic inches make this Chevy a pleasure to drive. It's topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrick intake, there's a set of Hedman long-tube headers at the flanks, and an HEI ignition and modern alternator make it much more reliable. The firewall has been painted to match the bodywork and the car is fitted with power steering and power front disc brakes, and up front there's a big radiator to keep it all cool. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeding a Ford 8-inch rear end that hangs on a set of beefy leaf springs out back, and the gearing inside is capable of both off-the-line 'giddy up' and highway cruising alike. A Camaro subframe was fitted up front, and there are upgraded shocks and a big swaybar out back, so it really does ride like a modern car. Twin stainless mufflers sound healthy but aren't overbearing - making this car extremely friendly to drive long distances - and one look at the solid undercarriage tells the story of how well-kept this streetrod has been since it was built. American Racing Torque Thrust 'Old Style' wheels look awesome on just about every classic and these wear staggered 185/75/14 front and 215/75/15 rear blackwall radials.

So, if you're tired of looking at other people's unfinished projects and are the sort of hobbyist who would rather be driving than tinkering, take another look at this '37 Chevy. It's a beautiful car for not a lot of money, and it's ready to go today. Call now!
