1937 Chevrolet Other Deluxe

Hard to believe that this polished-looking little coupe is a Chevy instead of a much more expensive model. With classic Art-Deco styling, ven the affordable 1937 Chevrolets look expensive and this handsome coupe's restoration suggests a lot of time and money invested in the result.Wearing its original code 215 Gazelle Brown, his tidy little coupe has an understated elegant look that surely was a hit in 1937. The styling was rounded and smooth, aking advantage of new advances in aerodynamics without losing the basic identity. The car's most distinctive feature is the slashing reveal coming off the front fenders, line unique to the 1937 Chevrolets and not seen anywhere else. Fit and finish are quite good, ith a great period-correct gloss that does without metallic or a hard shine to create a warmth you don't see on today's cars. The rear-mounted spare adds length and makes the car look sporty and running boards were still very much a part of the design, ith these wearing replacement rubber covers that look correct. A jaunty orang pinstripe highlights the belt molding and the bright chrome bumpers hug the contours of the body, iving the car an upscale look. Lovely little running lights on the fenders are almost futuristic, lanking that distinctive Chevrolet grille.The interior is typical 1930s practical, ith a comfortable bench seat covered in period fabric that's neither flashy nor cheap. It was clearly restored a long time ago but the materials are holding up well and it has a warm, nviting look today. The door panels feature original hardware and woodgrained garnish moldings and the headliner overhead fits well with no sags or tears. Simple auxiliary gauges flank a semi-circular speedometer, ith the secondary controls arrayed in the center of the dash. Aftermarket turn signals have been added, hich are a very good idea in today's traffic, ut the remainder of the systems and controls are very much as they were in 1937. Radios and heaters were still optional, nd this one does indeed carry an optional heater/defroster system which keeps the little coupe quite toasty on cool evenings. Unfortunately, he folks in the nicely appointed green leatherette rumble seat will have to deal with the elements, ut it's so much fun to ride back there that they probably won't even notice.Chevy's bulletproof "Stovebolt" six provides power, nd like its siblings it remains smooth and easy to drive. Despite decades of bolt-on speed parts being available, his one remains almost entirely stock, ncluding the manifolds and single-barrel downdraft carburetor. It starts easily on its original 6-volt electrical system and idles so smoothly you can barely feel it running. Correct Chevrolet Gray engine paint makes it look right under the hood, lthough it's no longer detailed for show. The transmission is a 3-speed manual with synchromesh, o if you can drive a modern car, his one won't take much practice at all. Brakes are drums all around, ut with hydraulic actuation (new in 1937), hey're surprisingly effective. A single exhaust system gives it a great 6-cylinder purr and the tidy undercarriage shows evidence of years of happy touring. Painted "artillery" wheels are treated to shiny hubcaps and wide whites, hich really dress up the little coupe.An attractive car that's a joy to drive, his little Chevy hasn't lost a step in the last 80 years.
