1934 Chevrolet Master 4-Door Sedan
With its wind-swept design and classic good looks, the Chevrolet
Master series has always been a rare and highly desirable line of
cars. Not surprisingly, gearheads, customizers and all but 90 years
worth of dedicated fans have elevated it to one of hot rodding's
greatest cultural icons.
Just glancing at cars in the halls of Classic Auto Mall, one can
spot the good, bad and the ugly right away, and you do not need
much of a trained eye. This one, using nothing but the best, is
definitely a good category build and can be shown or used as a
daily driver, it's that well done. Let's just say that amongst all
the Hot Rods here, this one is definitely a "shining ruby" and
definitely worth a look if you are not into the build part of the
An all steel '34 Chevy Master 4 door sedan body, retaining its
original roof line, crystal clear glass, dark red paint, and a
touch of custom in the form of gray beltline pinstriping that wraps
itself around the body starting at the cowl and running fully
around the body. The true highlight are the custom chrome 15-inch
rally wheels with smooth dog dish center caps. Fiberglass has its
advantages, but there simply is nothing like factory steel to make
a true hot rod. A bright trim spear separates the center hinged
hood with its tri-trimmings on the cowl sides. Fronting this hood
is a body matching grille surround with thin chrome trimming around
the blacked out eggcrate grille. Large chrome headlight mounts
adorn the grille and fender niche, and black texture painted and
diamond plate covered running boards bridge the gap between
thecurvaceous front and rear fenders. All chrome trimmings,
including the heavily chromed bumpers are present and accounted
for, as is the swept back phoenix hood ornament. I cannot forget
the smoked glass moonroof cut into the long ribbed steel roofing,
giving the front seat passengers a view of what's above.
Bird is the word...actually it's a nice leather in Oxblood red.
When flipping open the doors one can just feel the warmth on your
cockles as your eyes scan the dark red tweed panels with stitched
dividers and the chrome knobs, cranks, and the door actuator.
Inside floating in a sea of black carpeting which is wonderfully
clean, are 2 low back stitched leather buckets with nice sturdy
bolsters and some tuck and roll in the center. These are fronted by
a full metal jacket body matching red painted dash with a mixed
lineup of VDO, Sunpro, and SW round gauges in a brushed aluminum
panel and lower dash with the ignition switch and a few knobs in
the center. On top of the fixed position red column is a black
rimmed 4 spoke rally steering wheel. An AM/FM/CD stereo is hanging
below the dash underneath the glovebox. In back, an overstuffed
leather covered bench stretches from side to side and there is
plenty of rear passenger room. The headliner is tan broadcloth and
highlights the moonroof perfectly.
Lifting either side of the cowled hood reveals the engine bay and
within we see a blinged out 350ci V8 topped with a 4bbl
Edelbrockcarburetor. Some chrome is onfor the dress up on the valve
covers and open element air cleaner as well as the alternator. A 10
bolt rear axle handles all the power sent from the engine via a
TH350 3-speed automatic transmission.
Attracting all the attention underneath is the strong steel frame
and all black attachments,with just minor hints of surface rust. A
black steel frame provides the backbone for the body, running
boards and suspension, all looking just fab. An independent Mustang
II style front suspension is on with adjustable coil overs and
bringing up the rear is a leaf spring arrangement. The headers feed
down to a Smithy's muffler equipped exhaust system and we see power
disc brakes front and rear providing the stop on a dime and give
A pop of the door and a twist of the knob and I'm in street rod
heaven. The V8 has a great rumble but not so much as to drown out
my favorite tunes. My test drive was on a wonderful late fall
Pennsylvania day so I could go windows down, but I chose to leave
them up as this particular car is sans heat and frankly I do not
enjoy the cold. Taking a tour around the often imitated but never
duplicated Classic Auto Mall test track I looked cool as a cucumber
and my ears had a perfect mixture of exhaust notes along with tunes
on the radio. Power was more than adequate, shifting smooth, and
braking was exceptional and bias free. One issue with most street
rods is lack of interior room and comfort, this car has that
problem solved and then some.
Very impressive, and a build you could not replicate for the price
of this gorgeous, high performance, great handling, convenience
loaded vintage looker. All wrapped up in factory steel, deep dark
red and thankfully no flames...a must see in person to really
appreciate this standout. The photos do not do it justice, frankly
because I'm not in them, so come visit our Hallowed Halls and see
this rod in person. You won't be disappointed with this ready to
drive cross-country build.
