Based on Chevrolet's Master Deluxe platform, the Special Deluxe models produced from 1933 to 1942 were the most expensive models in the Chevrolet range for the time. All models shared a corporate appearance, because of Harley Earl's tutelage, and the dependable power that Chevrolet was known for. Stainless steel moldings trimmed the hood and body belt line which created their signature style and look. Standard equipment included a 30-hour clock, front door arm rests, dual windshield wipers, twin air horns and a deluxe steering wheel with horn ring.
Although the Chevrolet offered here may not be the exact Special Deluxe that crossed the production line in 1940, this vehicle retains all its former uniqueness. Most classic car enthusiasts would classify this vehicle as a Restomod as it includes all kinds of bells and whistles. Wearing a beautiful, bright red paint with custom gray interior this Chevrolet is a showstopper. The paint is exuberant, has no visible signs of wear and shines beautifully. The exterior chrome has been polished and the chrome wheels offset the cherry paint expertly.
Under the hood is a 383ci V8 that includes dual four-barrel carbs and a comp camshaft that has been coupled with an automatic transmission, which together provides more than enough power to get this vehicle down any roadway. The chassis and undercarriage have undergone updates as well including being color matched to the body and completed with original equipment.
The interior is where you will find most of the updates and technological advancements. Firstly, you may notice the leather-wrapped power bucket seats which compliment the modernized gray interior. Other updates include a Pioneer stereo system with 12-disc CD changer, air conditioning, and custom dash. All these advancements have been customized nicely and have been extremely well-kept. Included in the sale is tons of documentation and vehicle records.
With a physical appearance straight from the past and updates that rival any modern vehicle, this Chevrolet Special Deluxe is a hot rod that any collector would be pleased to have in their garage. This vehicle is a dream to drive and would be a perfect addition to any GoodGuys event. Please call if interested or e-mail specific questions. Thanks for looking.
