Car description

This brightly colored 1935 Chevrolet Master Deluxe two-door sedan is a cheerful reminder of how our grandparents got around during the Great Depression. It's actually remarkably stylish and a lot of fun to drive, testament to basic transportation when even affordable cars felt like quality.OK, e'll admit that the bright blue paint job is probably worlds better than it was when it was new, ut you have to say that this Chevy attracts a lot of attention. One reason is that it's not a Ford; when was the last time you saw a '35 Chevy? It was restored a few years ago and the job was done to a very high standard, rom the wonderfully ornate grille to the flowing fenders to the very stylish rear deck treatment that makes this one stand out in a crowd. Big suicide-style doors give you great access to the interior and create one of the most attractive styling elements of the car and a nice balance between the front and rear windows. The paint is applied over clean sheetmetal, nd patch panels are pretty much non-existent for these cars, o it was carefully smoothed and sanded rather than simply replaced. There's enough chrome to give the Master Deluxe an upscale look, ncluding a highly detailed hood ornament and a single taillight out back.The interior is comfortable and traditional, ith front buckets that look like furniture rather than car seats, nd the effect is extremely appealing. They're designed to allow good access to the spacious rear seat area and the custom cloth and vinyl upholstery is tastefully done in period-style patterns. Color-matched window garnish moldings match the dash, teering wheel, nd instrument panel, hich is full of original gauges. It's not totally authentic, ut the combination of bright blue and soft gray works quite well and the Chevy's low-key style looks great even today. It's basic, s radios were still cutting-edge and expensive in 1935, lthough there's an accessory under-dash heater that's surprisingly effective on cool nights. You'll undoubtedly find that once you're behind the wheel, his handsome Chevy feels familiar and competent and the controls are easy to master.Part of the Chevy's familiarity comes from a 216 cubic inch inline-six, hich was affectionately called the "Stovebolt" six. It's smooth and torquey and works remarkably well in the lightweight little sedan. It's dressed in proper Chevy gray paint and the simplicity is alluring, ith a single downdraft carburetor with oil bath air cleaner and easy service access. It still uses its original 6-volt electrical system, nchored by an 8-volt battery for faster starting, o the driving experience is very authentic. By 1935, M was using synchromesh on all their cars, ven the affordable Chevys, o the 3-speed manual transmission is easy to shift and clutch action is light. The suspension isn't sophisticated, ith a rigid axle at both ends, ut it rolls over rough pavement with surprising aplomb and the 4-wheel mechanical brakes are effective given the car's performance capabilities. It's happy to cruise at 50-55 MPH with a smooth mechanical woosh coming from under the hood and a nice 6-cylinder grumble from the single tailpipe. Artillery-style wheels were new for 1935 and carry simple hubcaps and a set of 17-inch whitewall tires that look period-perfect.Affordable antique fun, his Chevy is competent, tylish, nd easy to drive, hich just happen to be the same reasons your grandparents were so fond of cars just like this.
