For Sale: 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Look through our inventory and you'll see a lot of late-30s Fords, but oddly, not many Chevrolets. The big two have been duking it out since the mid-20s, and if your tastes run to the pre-war era, you owe it to yourself to take a good look at this gorgeous 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Sedan. Nicely built with a great-running 350 V8 and some choice luxury and convenience items, this is the perfect hotrod for the person who loves to drive.

The elegant Emerald Green paint is a bit more luxurious than anything that rolled off the assembly line in 1938, but on the 2-door sedan's curvaceous body and fat fenders it looks amazing, bringing out the details and highlighting Chevy's iconic pre-war design. The body is 100% steel that hasn't been chopped or modified in any way, with only the bumpers removed for a more streamlined appearance. And why would you mess with a good thing? The '38 Chevy 2-door is already one of the most handsome sedans of the era, with perfect proportions that straddle the line between sedan and coupe, a bright wind-swept grille, and a timeless profile one could stare at for days. Bodywork is really great, with a lot of extra care used on the final finish, although after a few years and some carefully driven miles on the clock, the build understandably shows just a few minor signs of use. Nothing big, mind you, but a few details that prove that this car was built to drive. Note that much of the original trim wasn't shaved or deleted, but polished up and reinstalled, adding interest without making the car look too plain, including the bright trim that runs down the center of the hood, the shiny door handles, and the custom rear 'bumper' out back. Cool factory headlights nestled between the fenders and grille look awesome, while the blue-dot taillights out back are the perfect complement.

You couldn't ask for a better place to spend some time than the gorgeous tan leather interior. Borrowed from a late model, the adjustable front buckets have been reshaped and modified to erase their previous identity and make them look right at home in the vintage Chevy, and the rear bench seat, headliner, and door panels follow the plush leather designs for a perfect match. There's also modern A/C, a leather-wrapped billet steering wheel atop a tilt steering column, and a powerful Sony AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo integrated in the custom headliner that powers speakers scattered throughout the passenger compartment. The original dash uses Classic Instruments gauges set into a custom machine-turned panel that really pops out from the green dash, and things like the A/C vents and controls are nicely integrated underneath, along with a stenciling of what appears to be the car's namesake: "Ms. Georgia". Plush carpets line the floors and are protected with matching rubber floormats, seatbelts were added fore and aft, and out back the massive trunk has been finished with matching carpets and custom side panels, so if you're going cross-country, this is definitely the car to take.

Cruising is easy thanks to the GM 350 cubic inch V8 crate engine under the hood that moves this slick sedan with authority that the original inline-six could never imagine. With an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching Edelbrock polished aluminum intake, along with an HEI ignition system, front-runner kit driving the accessories, and shorty headers feeding into a Flo-Pro dual exhaust system, it's a reliable powerplant that's also a lot of fun on the open road. There's some chrome and other goodies for dress-up, but it's obvious that this one is all about function over form, although it all looks like it's been serviced regularly since the comprehensive build was finished. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission feeds a heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end, and the front suspension was upgraded with custom A-arms, big springs and shocks, big sway bars are fore and aft, while the power rack-and-pinion steering system and power front disc brakes ensure a great ride every time out. Color-matched green wheels are adorned with shiny hubcaps and beauty rings, and they're wrapped with staggered 255/60/15 front and 255/5017 rear BFGoodrich radials that really fill the fat fenders.

Fully sorted and ready to enjoy, this awesome Chevy is a great show-and-go cruiser that'll make you smile every time you see it. Call today!
