For Sale: 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe sedan was given the right custom detail on the outside to maximize the distinct look of the pre-war sheet metal. And when you spot the fully upgraded interior and V8 power, you start to fully appreciate how this classic Chevy was made to be a solid cruiser for today.

We like the way this one uses custom details to maximize the vintage appeal. For example, there are deleted bumpers, frenched headlights, a frenched license plate, deleted trim, and door handles. This gives the classic lines a sleeker style, and it makes this one look like what the designers always hoped the 1940 sedan would really be. After all, this still keeps all the right vintage details, like the curvy fenders, running boards, two-piece wheel trim, and the alligator hood that fits so well with the chrome grille. Even the two-tone paint has the right look of vintage with black and gray, but a nice hint of metallic is another way this one modernizes the details. It's a driver-quality package, and that's because this is a car that's meant to be driven. After all, those redline tires and big exhaust tips are for true street cruisers.

The interior continues the two-tone style and it also continues the feeling of thoughtful upgrades. You have later model high back bucket seats finished in gray vinyl and comfy lighter gray cloth inserts. The door panels, carpeting, and headliner all have a clean style and coordinated look. The rear seat also matches, and the amount of legroom back there will make your passengers feel chauffeur-driven. This level of luxury also comes from the added features like the AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, cup holders, center console, and provisions for air conditioning (it will likely need a recharge to blow cold again.) And there's a comfortable driving position with an upgraded sports steering wheel on a tilt steering column that gives you a clear view of the VDO gauges.

A custom like this deserves upgraded power. And so under the hood is Chevy's 305 cubic-inch small block. It inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power as shorty headers feed the dual exhaust. It's not out to be a hot rod, but the V8 does give it the proper added power to be a confident cruiser. And that easy driver feeling is furthered by the three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes.

This one loves to be a true classic and a true cruiser. So if you've been looking for the right vintage car to fully enjoy with everyone, this is your Chevy. Call today!!!
