For Sale: 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe in Watsonville, CA

Vehicle Description

1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe Town Sedan.

Recently built to show off her original side but she has plenty under the hood. Runs great, take this car anywhere. Powered by a new Blueprint 350 crate motor paired with a TH350 Transmission. The engine was dyno tested at 378 HP so she’ll move. 3 Row Radiator, Electric Fan, C.E.I. Mustang II MANUAL rack, (no power steering) Disc Brakes, Camaro 10 Bolt Rear-End with drum rear brakes. This car says original but look closer you’ll see modern day items that separate her from the others. Chrome tilt steering column with a beautiful one of a kind custom two tone steering wheel with ‘40 Chevrolet horn button. Lokar Shifter, Vintage Air heater / defroster (no air conditioning) The wood grain dash and garnish in nice refinished shape. Dakota Digital gauges with glove box clock to match. JVC deck glovebox, Pioneer speaker in the original speaker hole and two Kenwood 6x9 on the back seat window deck. Rockford Fosgate 12” sub in the trunk for nice sound. The undercarriage has been sanded and coated with black rubberized sealer, 12 Volt power, New Gas Tank, New rear Leaf Springs, New Battery, New Running Boards, Dual exhaust with 12” Glass Packs. She’s sitting on 15” x 5 lug Artillery wheels with Chevrolet center caps that match perfectly with the 1940’s era. The tires are 165R 15 Radials with a 2.5” white wall. Spare tire and matching rim in trunk. The paint is an older spray with a couple of small dents and normal scratches, still very presentable. Much of the chrome has been redipped, stainless trim is in beautiful shape. New interior with sandstone velour fabric that makes for a great original look. 

This car has it all, she’s a real attention grabber / head turner. More invested than I’m asking, have receipts. 

Thank you for looking!! 

Please don’t hesitate to ask for more pictures.
