LS1 with overdrive, leather interior, and modern Heidts suspension makes this the ultimate Street rod! Now it is for sale in our Milwaukee Showroom and is a very custom 1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe. This cinnamon street rod, once owned by Tony Kukoc of the Chicago Bulls, is custom from the ground up, and virtually every surface on this car has either been painted, chromed, or is polished stainless steel. It's so nice you'll not only want to eat off the hood, but the undercarriage as well. As far as the powertrain goes, this rod is packing heat! Equipped with an LS1 Engine and 4L60E 4-Speed automatic transmission this thing goes just as good as it looks. In addition to the engine and transmission pairing, the rest of the powertrain consists of custom parts, including: driveshaft, shifter and shifter knob, and chromed and polished serpentine belt system. Like the rest of the vehicle, the interior is also completely customized and matches the cinnamon paint perfectly. Made by Kasper Auto Trim, the interior, trunk, and one-piece headliner create a driving space that feels eloquently modern, even though you're piloting a 76 year old titan of a street rod. Power rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes make the driving experience pleasant, complimenting the LS1 engine in perfect harmony. Quite frankly, one could write a novel about this vehicle and the plethora of custom work done on it over the years. The build sheet for this vehicle highlights every aspect of the process and even breaks it down by each aspect of the vehicle and even includes manufacturer details about each aftermarket part. This vehicle is located in our Milwaukee showroom. You can view this 1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving, at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle, have questions regarding it, or would like a complete run down of the plethora of custom parts, please call us at (262)-891-4253 or email us at Milwaukee@gatewayclassiccars.com.
