1931 Chevrolet Other
This is my 1931 Chevrolet 5 window coupe. I built this car 10 years ago. It's a all steel 1931 sport master Chevrolet body that has been chopped 3.5 inches. It has a Model A push outwindshieldand visor. The roof has been filled. The front grille is a 1932 ford car fiberglass shell. There is NO title for this car. CT only requires a bill of sale. It sits on a boxed Ford Model A frame. The frame was Z'ed in the rear. It has a split wishbone front suspension with a 4" dropped "I" beamfrontaxle. The front brakes are disc and the rears are drum. The e-brake works great. I put drum backing plates on the front hubs to hide the brake rotors and give it a front drum break look. The brakes are manual and the steering is manual. The rear diff is out of a S10, t's a 7.5 inch 10 bolt and has hairpin style rear suspension. The engine is a 1975 350 4 bolt main small block Chevrolet that is bored and stroked to a 383 C.I.D. It has vortec heads. I built the upper intake myself to house thesix two barrelRochester2-jet carbs. It only runs off the center two carbs. The outside four carbs are dummies. The engine runs great, tarts great and gets around 14 mpg. Never dyno'd but feels like a 300-325 horse power engine. 9 to 1 compression makes it run off pump gas perfect. 87 octane no problem. It has a 12 gallon fuel tank behind the seat and a flip up gas door off a 1967 barracuda. It has a red top optima battery. It is NOT aOldsmobilerocket, only put the valve covers over the stockChevyvalve covers. It has flowmaster 30 series mufflers that are not too loud at all. the exhaust system is ceramic coated. The transmission is a manual Borg Warner T-5 five speed with over drive out of a 1986 camaro. With the over drive transmission and the 4:11 to 1 rear diff gears it goes 70 mph down the highway at 2,000 rpm. It's a great car to drive down the highway. The rear tires are new Hurst radial cheater slicks with the small dot groove cut in them. The front tires are also Radials. Ansen 14" five spoke wheel up front and 15"chromesteelies out back. With all these things this is a very fun anddrive-able car. And gets a lot ofattention everywhere it goes. Theinterior in the car is very nicely done by one of the areas best. It is a complete interior done in the 1960's rolled and plates. Has a 4 point roll bar. Has all smoked glass in the car. Doors have manual crank windows. The seat is aoriginal 1932 ford five window coupe seat. I'm 6"2' and fit in this car perfect but the seat can be moved.It has a tilt steering column. It has heat that works great with a adjustable speed switch. It has a four speaker radio system with a ipod/sirus/usb/cd compatable radio. The only issue is the power antenna no longer goes up. Has a "its a snap" wiring harness. Isoldered and heat shrinked every wire connection. NO chessie wire connectors. Moon eyes gauges. All work but the speedometer is ahead by 5-10 mph and sometimes the engine coolant temp gauge does not work. It does have a gauge on the thermostat housing. This engine never over heats. It can idle all day in 100 degree temps and never go above 190 degrees. The electric fan works great on the aluminum radiator to keep it cool. TheHeinekenkeg works as the coolant overflow tank. All in all this is a great car done right. It fits into the rat rodcategory but is by no means a ruff rod. Its a complete car with a flat black paint job. But do remember it has been done for 10 years and i drove this car to many out of state shows and it has a few chips here and there like any driver does.
